I don't know whether your top 15 includes Duke or not, but Duke said they will not likely to make decisions before early April, and they were not sure about the possibility of any additional offers. Since it is now April, hopefully they will soon tell us something.

Q: What if an applicant accepts an offer of financial support and then wants to accept an offer from a different program or institution?
In some situations, an applicant may accept an offer of financial support from one graduate program and then may receive an offer from a program at a different institution whose program better aligns with their career goals and aspirations. In that case, the applicant must first request and receive a release in writing from the offer they previously had accepted before taking any subsequent offers.
