you applied twice? Or have two degrees?
If you are over their 75th on LSAT, they might by YPing you.
Did you mention how you wanted to go to Duquense in your PS or do a Why Duquesne essay? If not, and its been a while since it applied, I don't think it would hurt to e-mail them and say how you are excited about the oppurtunity to attend etc etc... Like do a LOCI. I mean its usually for people on the WL who have been YPed, but you could do it as a pre-emptive strike of sorts.
Yeah, that's what I thought. They ask "where have you applied" on the app and I say Pitt and WVU. "OH, SO WE'RE JUST HER SAFETY SCHOOL!" Something like that. Perhaps they're seeing if I withdraw first or not. Actually, I have called the admissions office on a few occasions with different questions. So I don't think I give them an uninterested impression, but who knows what they think. I did the Why Duquesne essay and I thought I did a good job honestly saying why I liked it and why I wanted to go there. They also have a personal statement, which is optional. The Why Duquesne is not optional.
To answer your question, I have my UG degree from there and a certificate from there. So I went there twice for two different programs.
How much longer should I wait until I send the letter? A week? Two? Three? Thanks.
