i did a quick search and I found the waitlist thread from last year:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=116608&hilit=duke+waitlist

they apparently overenrolled last year and offered people on the WL the option of being early decisions for the next cycle

this probably isn't very relevant to this year, but is interesting nonetheless

Joining the regular Duke WL too. Also my 4th WL.

I wish someone in admissions would grow a pair.

Still on priority reserve. They said they'd get to summer starters last week and I didn't hear, so I'm thinking that's a bad sign.

I'm assuming that everyone else has gotten this:

Dear Mr. Teflon:

Thank you for applying to Duke Law School. I am writing to provide an update on the status of your application.

We are approaching the deposit deadline for applicants who have already been admitted for our fall semester. Once these have been received, we will have a much clearer sense of the status of our class, and will evaluate whether we are able to make additional offers of admission from our waitlist.

In order to confirm your interest in being considered for a seat in the fall class, please complete this form online no later than Friday, April 29. Even if you have already contacted us regarding your continued interest, you must complete this form for full consideration.

Click here to confirm your interest in admission to Duke Law

Although we hope that you are still interested in the possibility of attending Duke, this form will also allow you to indicate that you wish to be removed from our waitlist.

I appreciate your interest in Duke Law School, and your patience through this lengthy admissions process. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Mark Hill
Director of Admissions

when you filled out the waitlist form online, did you receive a confirmation email?
