PT or non-PT?


I didn't even know about PT before I submitted it. Faillll. I guess I should expect a ding then?


No no that's not what I meant! PT seems to have been a consistent 2-3 days after complete to UR. RD is more of an enigma it seems like, I wouldn't sweat it yet. Lots of non-PT RDs in the mix.


Thanks. Almost had a heart attack. I guess I'm waiting until January then. Ahhh.

IN!! RD, UR since 10/31 and one of the first with a sub-170 LSAT score. So the good news is, Duke is finally beginning to care about all of us!

The bad news is, it looks like we don't get our official admission letter until after the scholarship review... which I guess means no exciting packet just yet? Sad.

You'll get your packet. It comes a week or two after the email. The official admission language is just to protect them from the priority track people messing up their yield numbers. That, and it means there won't be any schollies until 2012 sometime.

Ah. That makes so much sense. Thanks! (very sneaky of them, though.)

Now Im nervous. Just went under review for the second time. About how long does it take to find out once you go under review for the second time? And do they say the outcome online or do I need to wait for a mailing?

Some people found out a week later. When was your last UR date?

RD applicant (ED) ... went UR 11/14 and now just updated to 12/13

i know it's been discussed but I couldn't really find any sort of consensus.... is a multiple update likely positive at Duke?

I don't know necessarily if it is positive, but I do know that RD people who were accepted went through two UR dates

Got an e-mail yesterday that I got into Duke's JD/LLM program. 169 and 3.833. Very excited, but also know that I can't attend at all unless I also get scholarships for the normal program AND the summer program...really wondering what my chances of that are with my numbers + super strong resume/softs...

Edit: didn't get any e-mail saying I was nominated for the Mordekai scholarships or any other ones...hopefully that doesn't mean that my chances are very poor...

I feel a little dumb for applying to the LLM. Being an idiot I didn't realize it involved an extra 44k, and I'm sure I won't get any scholarships. I think tomorrow I'll email them and kindly ask to be removed from the LLM. I hope it doesn't mean the death of my application, but I couldn't afford it anyway.

Just from reading other people's posts here, I got the impression that the scholarship nomination email came later on (i.e. a little while after you got in). Anyway good luck and congrats on your acceptance!

I haven't heard anything back yet... 169 scorer as well, JD ( no special programs) applicant, non-PT. UR since 11/28

IN! PT, UR 12/2 -> Accepted 12/12. Duke is one of my top choices outside of CCN so I'm excited. Good luck to all those still waiting!
