Yeah, at some point in this forum there seemed to be a general consensus that only pure math applicants had received consideration because only people with pure math interests seemed to be getting offers. I for one think that some first round decisions have been made on both sides. Could someone confirm this? That is, is there someone with applied math interests who has received an offer from Duke on this forum. By the way thanks for sharing your response from the grad director math_applicant.
I hope we hear something from them next week.
