Yeah, I didn't get one, either. I don't think Duke generally gives out PT apps to GPA>3.5, LSAT>174 applicants (with good reason, these people are generally going to T6 or MVP with $$). I think they'd rather budget their time to take highly interested applicants early on.
i have 175+ from june and didn't get a PT invitation, fwiw (even though i really would have liked the chance for such an early T14 acceptance)
there was an earlier thread about duke PT, back when they first started sending them out which was i think around early september. there was a good amount of anecdotal evidence in that thread to suggest that there's some sort of YP element going on. based on what i recall from that thread, people with above a 173 or so were still getting fee waivers, but no PT - although some people who didn't get it initially had success requesting it.
edit: i would have requested the PT myself, but i had already submitted my application before i became aware it was an option to do so
