I didn't see a waitlist thread for Duke 2024 yet, so I thought I would start one. Daughter waitlisted and would love to attend.

    Waitlisted and would love to attend Duke as well. There's definitely a shot, but make sure your daughter knows that she will get a fantastic education wherever she commits by May 1.

    She definitely will! She's prepared to commit elsewhere, but is still hoping for a shot at being a Blue Devil. Best of luck to you.

    Daughter declined her Duke spot and will enroll somewhere else so hopefully this will help someone.

    A few years ago Duke put more students on the waitlist than they accepted. But this is not a normal year so who knows.

    Does anyone know when they start sending out waitlist acceptances?

    @coco3611 It would depend on how many enrolment deposits they recieve and when. Thay may not accept any off the waitlist if the yield is high.

    my daughter's AO told her no Duke waitlist discussions take place until after May 1, so I wouldn't expect to hear anything for a couple weeks. I know some universities are going to the waitlist already, but that does not seem to be Duke's timeline.

    Hey! I’m on the waitlist for Duke (and Harvard!). Someone from Duke has been emailing my dad about some financial aid documentation (they needed a 1099) and said they “would be able to process [my] financial aid award soon”... But Duke doesn’t even tell waitlisted applicants what financial aid they qualify for until they get in. My dad seems to think the wording might be significant, but I’m really not sure. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I even get my hopes up?

    @strawbri13 it certainly seems positive - don't know why they'd be bothering with financial aid otherwise.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if they "went to their list" prior to 5/1 despite standard messaging. They did so last year when things were far more normal. Who knows though!

    I also noticed on last year's forum people were getting pulled before May 1. I think you may be right that there should be movement prior this year for sure.

    Both Notre Dame and UVA have gone to wait lists far earlier than last year.

    That's a good sign. Based on last year's forum, Duke made their first notification of April 27.

    I emailed my admissions officer with a waitlist update, and she said that they won't go to the waitlist until after May 1st.

    Was it their standard email reply that gets sent back or was it personalized? I am surprised given they went to the waitlist before May last year. but maybe there a yield is much better than other schools!
