Then I guess is it possible that you're definitely in if you were invited to Duke Days, waitlisted if you weren't denied, but not invited to Duke Days, and everyone else denied.
Hmm, don't think so. It appears last year that the Duke Days invite went to both Waitlist and Admitted.

I saw that, but they already sent out rejection letters. So maybe they had more applicants this year and didn't have space to invite waitlisted students. They keep saying they have "limited space." I'm not sure, just a theory!

Hey yal,

I attended duke days yesterday and just wanted to say it was amazing. The facility and simulation labs are top quality and they did a good job of selling their commitment and dedication to you. They also recently earned the rating of number one nursing school in America and are very proud of that as they should be.

A few things I wanted to mention were around 65 of us were there yesterday and Nora said around 30 will be at next week's duke day. Not sure how many were invited but that's how many are attending. Also she said 73 will be accepted into the program. Lastly, the faculty was talking to us as if we were definitely going to get accepted or waitlisted, though they didn't say it directly.

For those of you that weren't invited I wouldn't get too down because the price of the program will probably drive a lot of accepted students to other schools (like me most likely, if I'm accepted), which is probably why they didn't deny everyone that couldn't fit into duke days.

Oh, also they said acceptances will go out first week of April, and we will have one month from that day to accept or deny our seat.

Hope this fills some of you in, and good luck,

Dylan

Awesome! Thank you for the info, droot353! From your info, it looks like around 22 are on the waitlist and 73 admitted, if everyone who attended was invited. So nervewracking... also, awesome they're number one!

I also attended Duke Days this past Friday. It really was an awesome event, they definitely went above and beyond to show off their program. I counted less than 65 for students, there were about 65 people in attendance but I noticed a lot of guests (I brought my mom). But I could be wrong, it could've been 65 students. I'm feeling very anxious for the first week of April!

I think the number of invites for duke days would be a better representation of the chances of getting accepted but she didn't share that number. Anyways, best of luck!

Thanks Irtyson amd droot353! Did they happen to mention what the statistics of admitted students typically look like... GPA and stuff? And did they talk about Financial Aid? Does there appear to be a decent amount of help or is it all loans mostly?
