Hey!
I applied to Duke early February (I know, really late) – and I haven’t heard anything. I’m not surprised at all since I applied late, but I was wondering if anyone knows about how long it takes to get decisions and how they come (dings vs. WL vs. acceptance)—whether it’s through mail or e-mail.
Also, does anyone know about how long it takes to get a decision and when the latest we’ll hear by is? I have a couple schools that want a deposit by April 1—so I’m getting nervous I’m not going to hear back by then.
Thanks for any info!

I think its really random - I also applied in early Feb and was accepted last week (and definitely was not an auto-admit, splitter with 3.5, 170) and there are people who applied in the fall and are still waiting. With Duke the pattern has been 2 UR review dates and after the second one your status will change within a few days to "Decision Made, watch for email" (at least that what they do with acceptances and PR/WL, not sure about dings). I'm not sure when they say they will have all decisions made by though so not sure if you will hear by April 1st. Hope this helps a bit!

Dear Duke,

I have you "WINNING" in my bracket this year. Please return the love and have me "WINNING" via acceptance to your law school.

Thanks.

Scholarship offers have been coming based on when they received your scholarship form. I got mine a little over a week ago and they got my form on the first of February.

Congrats! Did you say anything specific or make any promises in the LOCI (PM if you'd rather)? Sorry about all the questions I'm just PR'd and trying to figure out what more I can do.

Should the 3/14ers be expecting a decision this weekend? Are there instances where a 2nd update doesn't mean a decision that week?

Anyone have any idea how long it takes from Scholarship Offer Mailed until it arrives? I'm waiting over a week. Is there a chance it's not lost in the mail?

I emailed my scholarship form Thursday (filled it out by hand, scanned it). Around 24h later I received a confirmation from them, telling me they had received it.

me too.

But I think they were talking about Duke mailing them back about how much (if any) scholarship they're getting, they submitted much earlier than us.

Just withdrew from Duke, hopefully this means that someone can get off of the WL or out of review purgatory.
