I think the consensus we reached is that it sounds like an offer to be considered for next years class, not another application. All he will have to do is fill out a short form. So we don't think he needs to withdraw his UT application to take advantage of the Duke offer. If the OP signs the paper, he has two possible outcomes:
1. Duke lets him in and he has to enroll there in 2011.
2. Duke rejects him and he goes to UT in the fall.
So, if he would go to Duke sticker if they let him in I see no point in not signing the paper. Worst case scenario he is right back where he started. Only reason to not sign the paper is if he would rather go to UT even if Duke lets him in.
Well said. I considered that point in my thread about this issue(WUSTL) and Duke is the winner in a battle with WUSTL any day. Texas (sigh) tough. In my best interest I say dont send the form in lol. Unselfish self says fill the form out.
