I'm in the same boat. Mine says "file complete, submitted for review" since 7/7. It seems like they're using a process of elimination since people have been rejected and none have been accepted yet. I'm still confused about all those posts regarding interviews?

Anyway, I'm not cut out for this waiting stuff... if I were a smoker, I'd be chain smoking these days lol.

I'm still incomplete. That's the risk you take when you apply near the deadline, I guess. Good luck, everyone, Duke Law's a very nice place (I went there undergrad).

For those who interviewed, I can't remember if he said we'd hear by today or tomorrow. Well good luck, this is reaching its terminus.

^I didn't mean to suggest that only those who have already been interviewed were getting in. I just meant that he told those interviewed that we would hear by a certain date, of which I couldn't remember, but I know it's soon.

Oh, I had taken you to say a couple days ago that it would all be over by the end of this week, as they're admitting a tiny transfer class. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case but at least it appears that they're not putting late completions into the dustbin.

^I think you are thinking of princecaspian. I never said anything a couple days ago. But yeah, it's just the way he made it sound in the interview -- but he didn't explicitly say that.

My status checker says info needed; watch for e-mail (they requested certain info this morning, which I sent them). I guess that isn't very helpful.

Oh no, I got the e-mail they said I should watch for. I guess they haven't updated it since I sent the info they requested in that e-mail.

WL'ed by email. As already said, it reiterates that this year has been more competitive for a more limited number of spots than expected.

I will likely be withdrawing as I am 90% I am Michigan bound.

Good Luck to everyone.
