You too!


You should check to see if you have this.

In the mailings column, I just saw a new entry: Welcome packet 11/03/2010

Good sign, yes?


I was accepted on the Priority Track. I also have that mailing listed, with that date as well. Congratulations!

It's not my top choice but I'm still ecstatic! Feels great to have an acceptance under my belt! What about you? Is Duke your first choice?

congrats to everyone that is in! I was in via PT last week, but my mailing date is 11/03/10 as well... I guess I will have to wait for the goodies they send!

EDIT: Numbers are in LSN profile & I did write a "Why Duke"

Someone want to make me feel better and tell me this is YP? I'm in at GULC and Texas (I probably would choose GULC even with acceptance), so that makes things a little better, but I'm still confused. I don't know how I would have reacted if this was my first reply. What is the deal?

Also, before I even got the advice, I was asked to do an interview and told them to basically GTFO. Not flying to Durham over Thanksgiving or Christmas.


Definitely yield protect. Interview was a test, they wanted to see if you were interested enough to fly down there and interview with them, you weren't, so they wanted to protect their yield percentage. I wouldn't worry for even one more second about it. You're pretty much T6 secure.

My first acceptance, in at Duke via PT! Under review 7 days. Numbers are over 75th percentiles. [Edit to add: I didn't write a "Why Duke?"]

Good luck to all still waiting.

Congrats!!! Duke is a good school to get your first acceptance to. Makes everything much more relaxing once you have a great school under your belt.

Got a letter in the mail today from Dean Levi. Congratulations on being admitted and this is why I think you should choose Duke. Also enclosed an article he wrote for the Duke Law Review on Justice Posner.

I am impressed with the correspondence I have received from Duke - they certainly seem to care about making their case and looking like the right school for me.

Anyone else get this letter?

Glad to know you got yours and it didn't get lost in the internet tubes. Yay for first acceptances! :D
