Duke priority track

Postby seivan09 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 5:38 pm

Hello,

I'm currently an undergrad looking at law schools. One of the schools I'm currently looking at is Duke.

When doing research, I came upon a thing called priority track, my question is how does this work? Does one have to get invited to apply, or can anyone apply? Also, do you have to have stellar grades to apply? Any and all help is greatly appreciated - thank you.

Duke invites people who have a fairly high LSAT score (165 +, maybe higher?) and G.P.A to apply via their priority track, which essentially guarantees the candidate a decision within ten days of submitting the application.

If you're invited to apply via priority track, you have a very good chance of acceptance. They also waive your application fee.

More around 170+, but yeah, everything else he said.

If you have 175+ and 3.9+, would Duke YP you if you apply through the priority track? If Duke YP you in September, that would set a bad tone for the cycle.
