Basically the standard fee waiver template TLS has somewhere, but replace fee waiver with Priority Track; of course I also included my LSAT and GPA info.

I'm Z, so if people are still receiving, it's not b/c of alphabet

170/ 4.0, no PT email. I am curious as to why some people with higher numbers are not receiving the invite?

Yeah I'm really confused why lower scores are getting them instead of higher scores

hey all - idk if this applies to you guys but if you are serious about duke, visit it in person. especially if they ask to interview you. and write a legit why duke essay. GL

Well now we know they're not overlooking people for YP purposes. 176/3.85, got mine today. That makes 2 top 20 schools where I've gotten fee waivers (received one from UCLA yesterday).

Have we established any rhyme or reason as to whom gets PT, other than highish numbers? Looking over these numbers, seems pretty random.

This forum will always tell you to retake when your GPA is that high. And it being from an ivy won't make much of a difference.

this is not an acceptance letter. don't treat it as such.

I would probably retake with that GPA/LSAT.

Does anyone know what the CRS shows law schools? Is it JUST gpa and LSAT or is there more? Just wondering because it seems like a pretty weird group of people are getting this priority track thing.

At least ethnicity too as I get tons of asian american related emails. Probably state residency too.

Do they usually send out PT invites all at once or should we expect another batch or two later this week? 3.9/172 (from Oct.), I've received a fee waiver from them but no PT invite. I want to apply ASAP but I'd strongly prefer to do so through PT.

I've been wondering the same thing. Fwiw, I'm a virginia resident, but was born in nc. So maybe some regionality is factored in?

Think ethnicity is also shared; I received an email from a Latin student group from one law school.

3.84/173 over here. I am a VA resident as well so maybe it has something to do with being on the east coast? Who knows.
