Pretty sure you hear after 2 updates, but it could be a few days afterwards


I was admitted after only 1 UR update. I still find it odd. Submitted 1/10, UR 1/24, Decision made; watch for email + Acceptance email 2/26

Updated to UR today after initial 11/8 UR. I sense an imminent waitlist. Won't ride it out.

Got an acceptance email tonight around 10:15pm EST. My dates are on the previous page, but as a recap, I applied on 12/20, UR 1/18 and UR 2/28. Applied for a JD/LLM, so I'd be a summer starter!

Priority reserved as of 10:20 last night. Is PR a waitlist?

Also, I applied for the JD/LLM but I'm no longer able/willing to start in May. I'm still interested in the regular JD program at Duke but is it going to hurt me to withdraw from LLM consideration?

UR 2/14 --> 3/2

Forget my complete date. Haven't been following this thread closely enough to read the tea leaves with these dates.

11/22 to 3/2 today. Agora what are your numbers? This doesn't look like necessarily a bad update :D . I'm really hopeful for duke, their entrepreneurship and private equity stuff is really great.

As a splitter still stuck on 11/22 and you guys with better numbers, I'm guessing this is a good update.

Hm... it seems like EVERYBODY is getting a decision after their 2nd UR date. I only got 1 review date... and an acceptance ~1 month later. Never got a 2nd UR date. Not that it matters but I'm really perplexed by it!

Seems that Duke is now getting their gpa medians, accepting high gpas now, earlier it seemed it was mostly the high lsat group... we will see...

Yes, since I'm a splitter that didn't update from 11/22 and people with better numbers than me updated. i doubt I'll get outright dinged...O.o

Disagree, this update seems to be a lot of the splitters with LSATs that are at/above their 75th and based on LSN I would guess that they have locked in their GPA.

Compare this years LSN for Duke to last year and you'll find that the amount of green/admits for traditional splitters is dramatically lower than it was last year compared to the regular higher GPA people where the saturation is almost the same as last years now.

Your softs definitely look good if you conveyed them well.
