Duke University ABSN Fall 2013

Hey everyone! I submitted my application to Duke University's ABSN program for fall 2013 a few weeks ago, so I wanted to get some conversation started! Is anyone else applying?!

Wow 1,831 views but no replies? I've applied also. It's annoying that the deadline isn't until December. Now it's just a waiting game. Do you think you're going to do Duke Days if invited?

I completely forgot to answer back, so I'm sorry that this is getting to you so late. I will definitely be attending Duke Days if invited. I'm very excited about this program. I've heard so many excellent things about it, and cannot wait to hear back. I'm also very nervous! Haha :unsure:

Hey everyone! I am applying to Duke's ABSN Fall 2013 as well. I am planning on submitting my application this week. Am I correct in thinking that they do not operate on a rolling admissions? I was worried that I waited too long but I have been trying to perfect everything :)

You are correct - they do not operate on rolling admissions! Everyone will be evaluated at the same time, and we should all hear sometime in December (typically before Christmas) about Duke Days, from what I have read in old posts around here! You haven't waited too long, your timing is great :)

Great! I am getting really excited to turn everything in. Duke is my top choice so I am hoping for the best! It is such a great program.

Mine as well! Are you from the area? I am not.

No, I am not from the area. It would be quite a move for me but definitely worth it.

Same here. Here's hoping we receive great news about interviews soon!

It would be a great Christmas gift! Good luck to you!

Good luck to you as well! We can continue to keep each other updated through this thread!

I'm applying too! I'm still waiting for my last recommendation to come in and then I'm clicking Submit. Can't wait to hear back! I'm applying from China so I'll be moving no matter where I go to school. NC is beautiful and would be an affordable place to live while racking up six figures of student debt. :-D

Hi everyone! I am also applying for Fall 2013. I just got my last recommendation letter in, so I will be submitting my application this weekend. I do live in the area, so I will be happy to answer any questions for those of you who live far away!

Hi everyone!

I just submitted my application a few days ago. I was wondering if there was a way to see if Duke has received my transcript? By logging in to the website I am only able to see that my application has been submitted. Just wanted to make sure everything is complete! Thanks for the help!

Hey everyone! Are you guys applying to any other programs?

I was able to check if Duke received my transcript by logging in to the application. That's how you check the "status".

MrsBaze, are there any nice, clean, safe and affordable places for a younger student (early 20s) to live by herself in Durham? I'm looking for a place that has a washer and dryer. I would prefer to spend no more than 800 a month including utilities. Is this possible?

In the past, applicants heard in December about interviews. Does anyone know when in December we may hear?

Good luck, guys!

I can see that my recommendations have been submitted. Will it come up in this section when they receive my transcript?

I am also applying to NYU, Pace, Case Western, and Georgetown but Duke is my top choice! From what I've read we will find out about interviews in December. I am getting nervous!

Duke is my top choice as well!!! And yes, it will come up in that section when they receive your transcript, as far as I can tell!

I'm getting nervous too. I hope we all hear good news!

Thanks for the help! Hopefully we will all be able to meet at Duke Days!

Hopefulnurse24, I don't think you should have a problem finding a place like that around that price. It will probably depend on how close you want to live to campus. I would recommend browsing raleigh.craigslist.org, just to get a feel for what is out there (and how much they cost). Durham gets a bad wrap sometimes, but it really is a nice, safe place to live! Like any city, there are some areas you want to avoid.

Good luck to everyone!!

Hope everyone is doing well! I was just wondering if anyone else did not submit GRE scores. I believe mine should be waived but my application status still says incomplete because they do not have scores. I wouldn't want my application to not be reviewed because of this!
