    Fromcatony - the program is about 3 years full time at Emory. Which specialty are you interested in?

    Has anyone received the actual letter in the mail from Emory with details on the admitted students day? I'm looking into buying a plans ticket this week but just want to be 10000% sure it's on Feb 8th. Thanks!!

    Hi Lindsay! I've been waiting for any further updates from them so I can potentially plan out my trip too. I think I'll call in on Monday to ask.

    Has anyone heard about when Boston College will be notifying?

    I think BC is notifying in late February, but I'm not sure. I just remember reading that somewhere, but I can't find it.

    I'm so frustrated I haven't heard from anywhere yet (mainly Hopkins!). I'm dying over here!

    Hang in there Hopeful! I don't think we're going to hear from Hopkins until late February/early March. I think I'm dying most to hear back from Penn. 2-3 more weeks! But probably closer to the 3 week mark.

    Really?! I was hoping for the 2 week mark, haha! I bet they tell us next Monday when they'll be informing us. I'm excited, but nervous! Did you apply to Duke? We will hear about interviews next week!

    I'm hoping for the 2 week mark too (around the first week of February) but I think someone said its probably going to be after the 6th?

    I applied to Duke! Should hear back from them and Vandy around the same time I think

    I called Duke. January 30th is definitely the day (so 6 days from now we will know if we will be invited to continue on or not), and Duke Days will definitely be February 22nd, March 1st and March 4th. Over 400 people applied, and 170-180 will be invited to interview. I'm kind of, sort of, REALLY nervous! 400 is a lot! So they interview about 45% of applicants and I am guessing accept around 100 to matriculate a class of 70-80 for the first round. And since they do second round and waitlist, I am sure they exhaust their resources of most of the 170-180 who were interviewed, as long as they don't do really badly in the interview or pull their application out if they end up attending another school or something. So they probably "officially" have an overall 25% acceptance rate. I tried calling Hopkins too, because I want to know if they know anything else about when they will be notifying applicants, but their admissions office doesn't open until 8:30 and I have to be somewhere at that time, so I don't know that I will be able to call them today. Maybe when my day is over? Lol. They are open until 5!

    Hearing that from Duke made me SO nervous because I really want to go there, but they are informing us so late about their admission decision compared to other schools, and I REALLY don't want to turn any program down with how competitive Duke is. I'm just a nervous wreck! I don't like waiting so long to hear from everyone! I have a friend who is applying to law schools, and she didn't apply anywhere until late November/early December, and she has already been accepted to 3 schools! I know it's a completely different ballgame, but it still frustrates me! I just wish there was more consistency and that this process was more standardized. I'm dying! But I guess that there's nothing I can do but wait, and hope and pray for good news!
