Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
Find out next time on Dragon Ball Z
any chance whatsoever the median at Duke drops from 170 to 169 this cycle or no way
probably not.
Any night Wave?
do you we think there will be any WL movement this cycle? I know last cycle there were virtually no offers off the WL
im still waiting to hear back about my app
e wave incoming :( (I think)
anyone know if duke ever lets people off the waitlist? I can't see anyone on LSD from the last two cycles lmao
as far as I know, and I could be wrong, nobody got in from the WL last cycle
atp are there any a's left to give
Yes, they are still giving them, including today. They are also only up to November 27 for A’s. That December 19 app given an A today is an anomaly.
they also sometimes go back and release As for days they've already passed - theyve done a bit of that for early and mid November.
so if your day already released As and you didnt get one, doesnt mean you wont
Survived the E wave now what lol
statistically, you probably get one later
I have a very strong feeling Duke is nearly full. Too many strong splitters and people above both medians getting WL.
just got a WL mail from duke :(
email or snail mail?
Duke all but told me they were full in a WL email reply
Is duke gonna let people off the waitlist
So Duke emailed a little while ago saying they've narrowed down their waitlist to something very small - any ideas what kind of size they're talking about?
Why do these messages not have dates?
@LudicrousVoicelessHare: how long ago did they reach out?
wave today 12/1?
hope so
would it only be for ED tho
last year they sent some A's on Christmas Eve; I would take that this year
or eariler
