Status checker changed to UR today, but the date says 10/11. Fingers crossed! :)

Edit: P.S. Anyone know how long it generally has been taking to go from UR->Decision this cycle?

Got invited to do an on campus interview before they make their final decision. Hopefully, I'll be heading out to Durham this week. Hopefully I'll be an admit by the end of the week.

It's weird that they email decisions on sundays. Last cycle I was admitted on a sunday.

not sure if you saw this link to an interview with Duke's dean of admissions. Sheds some light on their process: http://www.admissionsdean.com/researchi ... /bill-hoye

That's discouraging seeing as we're numbers twins. Did you write a Why Duke?


I didn't, though now I wish I had obviously. I'm wondering if I should write one and send it in as supplemental, I suppose it couldn't hurt.


I got priority waitlisted last year. What that means, from my personal experience, is that they leave you hanging from november all the way until the next august only to offer you an opportunity to have your credentials reevaluated for the next cycle. then they reject you. I hate duke and i hope they loose to a 16 seed this year.

Admitted priority track today! Heard at 9:30pm Durham time, kind of strange... Applied 11/27. Its my first I've heard back from, but I'll potentially be seeing some of you in the fall! Visits are next...

Hi.

I am a current student at Duke Law. If there are any summer starters who are interested in a sublet, let me know. It's big, cheap, and close to school. I'll be away for my SA position.

I'll post this again later in case this is too early in the season.

Hi all!

I was also admitted ED (after priority reserve last cycle), and I just wanted to pop in and say, 'hello'! :) I'm tremendously excited for next year. For those of us who were given the (surprise) windfall of a non-academic year, how have you been passing your time?

I went on my customary post-collegiate backpacking trip and now I'm teaching the SAT and working as a paralegal for a law firm. Has anyone started looking at housing options? Been taking continuing education classes?

Good luck to everyone in this admissions cycle!

Hi everyone! I got in 12/17 under Priority Track for the regular J.D. fall start, and out of the schools I've heard back from so far, Duke's my top choice. I'm still banking on getting some other acceptances, but it's possible I may not, in which case I would see you all next Fall!

Can anyone suggest apartments within walking distance to the law school?
