Waitlisted at Duke via Priority Track: Question

Postby biggiemike000 » Mon Jan 18, 2010 7:30 pm

I got an e-mail today informing me that I've been waitlisted at Duke. My numbers are far from impressive for Duke (164,3.87). I've applied to other schools such as BU, BC, Fordham, Emory, and a couple safety schools. I planned on sending a LOCI in about another week, however, I was wondering if I should possibly wait and see where else I am accepted and if they offer me any aid. I'm figuring with my stats Duke will consider it as them doing me a favor by admitting me so I'm assuming I'll be paying sticker price. Obviously, cost will be a factor for my family but at the same time Duke is an excellent school and it is closer to my home which I kind of like. Does it make a difference if I waited about a month and a half to send the LOCI or if I sent it in the next week or so? Any advice or opinions are appreciated.

Mike

I plan on writing the LOCI this weekend. When you mention visiting are you talking about meeting with an admissions officer or e-mailing the Dean of Admissions and letting him know? I see on the website it says that these are not part of the admissions process and are not evaluative but I could only believe that it would help.
