Are you RD? I think it is still going to take a long time to hear back. There are a ton of us who went complete 11/04---> UR 11/28 and have not moved since


Yep - RD.

Finally got my fall grades sent after a PT grades request in early November and a long struggle trying to get my final grade from one of my professors lol. GPA dropped by .01 but at least I'll hear back from them soon.

Just accepted via PT:

LSAT: 170
GPA: 3.51

applied 1/13 and one of my LoRs is still pending so this is a huge surprise ...

Every other school I applied to says you're considered automatically - but I just went through Duke's app instructions, and there isn't any info at all..

http://www.law.duke.edu/admis/financial/scholarships


EDIT: Looks like forms are submitted after being admitted? However the Mordecai is an automatic consideration, no form needed...


Submitted my form via email on 1-17. No response/confirmation of receipt. Normal?

Re: Scholarships

Has anyone heard back after sending in Merit Only form? Do we know from past years when to expect a response?

Cheers.

Nooo Not way more deserving! You deserve it FOR SURE... Not that everything needs to be a comparison, but I do feel that we have comparable stats and that if you were accepted I hopefully would be too. I just feel like a second class citizen cause my lsat is one point too low (i.e. i did not get PT) to get the attention of duke until who knows when.

There's no shame in being part of the proletariat - it builds character.

My status checker just updated to today's date from 11/28!! Finally. Hopefully that's a good sign. I'm also one of the "1 point too low for PT" people.

Sorry, but what was the LSAT requirement for getting PT (I take it PT means priority track)?

As far as I know, no one under 170 got priority track invitation.

I guess when I say "as far as I know", I really mean as far as I know, based on what I remember reading on TLS. I appreciate those who make spreadsheets and track data points similar as this on TLS & elsewhere (LSN etc) but I am not that guy (well I am a girl but that doesn't sound as good) I am going off of my highly flawed memory :) . Hell I did not even look back in this thread to check the hard evidence

Are you a jerk in real life or just on the internet?

@so_fetch: There are two <170 apps on LSN this cycle, both URMs. And there are more than 100 PT apps on LSN, so I'd say your speculation is almost certainly correct that 170 was a cutoff for non-URMs.

Yeah, I don't think it's as cut and dry as an LSAT cut-off (although LSAT seems to play a significant role). I wasn't invited to do Priority Track, but I am 170+ (although I still consider myself part of the proletariat).

Why didn't he/she say that in the original statement? In any case I know of several sub 170 recipients. That was what I meant by her sample etc etc. I'm sorry I hurt your feelings.

You're all wrong.

I was priority track with a 169, non-URM, admitted about five days ago.
