This is a quote from a prior duke law cycle. It is from Duke's website.
"Applicants to Duke Law this year make up the largest and strongest group we have received to date. In addition, because we enroll 40-45 students in our summer-starting dual degree programs, there are only 160 seats in our fall JD class."
So, there were 160 seats. Because the median LSAT is 170, and applicants with a 170 or above were PT'd, I'd say probably about half the class are PT admits (170+ LSATS). So that leaves 80 or so for RD admits. Sorry.
Didn't Duke matriculate ~235 students last year? Also, many 170+ applicants were not selected for PT (case in point...). Also, I am one of those few ED applicants spoken of earlier, and I fully intend on taking a seat. Probably with an awesome scholarship too.
There is speculation that 170 is the PT cutoff, but GPA also may be a factor, too.
