Hey everyone. Congrats on everyone that's been accepted so far, and good luck to everyone still waiting. Be sure to join us over in the TLS Transfer Cycle 2015 (Class of 2017) thread once you know where you're headed!

Probably but the NYU and Columbia acceptances may open some spots

I didn't get that email either. Also I was looking through their admissions site and it said that the personal statement should specifically be about why you want to come to Duke. Mine was just a general why I want to be a lawyer.

Dinged via email. Solid ties, solid app, and top 15% at Emory. F.M.L.

I'm starting to buy into the narrative of this being an especially competitive transfer cycle all around.

Well, I've been rejected thus far from all of the top 14 (bar 1) so I'd tend to believe that. I just really, really, want to leave my current school and thought I'd written a very well-crafted, personalized app to Duke (along w/ several LOCIs). Again, F.M.L.
