Niiiiiice! (by which I mean not nice at all and wtf is Duke doing?!)


Hey guys, I may not be one to talk but... I wouldn't worry too much. I think it took some people many months to get into Duke... without even a hold. Have heard of Oct. submissions getting in Jan/Feb...

1st waitlist of the cycle...i'm assuming that's what priority reserve is? meh didn't write a Why Duke...just applied because of the fee waiver. good luck to the rest of the not priority trackers!

To give you some hope, it sounds like a lot of people updated 02/23 and have been WLd and admitted.

If you're the only one, I'm guessing an acceptance.


I hope so, and thanks for the encouragement. I'm feeling a little hopeless these days because I still haven't heard from any of my top choices and I'm starting to worry that I'm in strictly waitlist territory. Considering that neonx's email(s) came after business hours yesterday, I am guessing that the status checker update and the decision email do not necessarily come within a short time of each other.


Okay! In by email. I really like how the subject is "Welcome to Duke Law" and the first line of the e-mail is "You're in!" - shows up nicely on the Gmail. I applied 12/1 and was under review 12/20 and again 2/22. Wrote a Why Duke which I honestly put together in a few hours after perusing the website--but I think it sounded fairly sincere. Glad I did!


Congrats!

I have a bad feeling.

UR 2/7-> 2/23

Just got the Priority Reserve Email. People with numbers lower than mine have been getting in, so I'm assuming this is probably related to the unconvincing "Why Duke" I wrote or applying 1/10 when they recommend applying by 1/1.

Waitlist. Fuck.

At least the email was complimentary.
