    This is killing me! I have a Micro test today and can't focus because I keep thinking that I could find out today ahhhhhh!

    When I went to Duke Days I was told the admissions committee meets today, and we would hear tomorrow or the next day. Do you all know something I don't know?
    Goodluck everyone! And thanks everyone for the support and company throughout this process. Can't wait to know!

    Hey! I just called them and they said that they are meeting all day today but when asked when the decisions will come out the receptionist said "All I was told was the middle of the month". I think you are right evaamber. Although I am getting so anxious.

    I'm actually pretty sure evaamber is correct. At my Duke Day on Feb 4th I definitely heard them say they'd be MEETING on the 14th. My guess is that the latest the first round of admissions will receive notification is this Friday.

    And the child in me shook a Magic 8 ball which informed me that "All signs point to yes" to tomorrow being the big day. You know, just if anyone buys into that stuff

    Happy Valentine's Day Ladies! (and Gents)

    They seem quite efficient over there, so maybe we will know by tomorrow.
    In between two anatomy tests right now, so at least I have something else to think of. Time flies when you are having fun, ha, ha.

    Okay I might just burst if we don't hear from Duke soon!
    Did anyone else apply to Chapel Hill? I got this weird email about how they're cutting their enrollment by 25% and now the ABSN program is only available for January enrollment!
    If I had any doubt about where I wanted to go before now I know for sure
    I hope everyone is able to sleep more than I have these last few night!
    Good luck!

    I just got a Spring informational email! WHY are they trying to give me a heart attack? I thought it was THE email. Any of you planning on going to this thing?
  9. by   bananaducks
    I flipped out when I saw that email! and then I logged onto my application because last year's cohort found out around noon and something is wrong with my application. It started an entirely new one for me. I think i clicked the wrong button. I hope it gets resolved!!!

    Best of luck to all of you!!!!

    Haha I got the info session email too and my heart skipped a beat...not cool hahaha! I think whether I go or not depends on whether or not I get in!

    On second thought, I doubt anyone from this potential cohort will want to go since we all just came from Duke Days... Perhaps the phone interview candidates, though.

    I believe the Info Session is different from our ABSN Duke Day in that it covers all of the Nursing School programs. I went to the ABSN info session after sitting in the lobby and talking with some of the nurses who were going on to the Masters level. Gave me ideas of what I might want to do in the future and what opportunities were available for me after getting my BSN. I may go to the Spring session to find out more about the other programs.

    Well, off to the middle school to volunteer at the Book Fair. Hope we hear from Duke soon.

    I hope that we find out today b/c the anticipation is driving me nuts! I had went to the first information session and I had wrote down in my notes that the meeting would be on the 14th and we would not find out until the 16th or 17th. I thought that I also remember them saying that if we are accepted that our financial aid package would also be known then. Maybe they need another day to organize that still?? Did anyone hear or write down anything different??
