Thanks for the info - it just seems weird that plenty of people with later complete dates and UR dates have gotten the gamut - acceptances, WL and dings.

Have there been rejections yet?


good pt - a couple on LSN but they seem to be ED. I guess that means I see a ding coming

What other law schools have "new" buildings like Duke? Do you guys prefer that type or would you rather have the old, gothic-like architecture of a school like UMich?

I have yet to see the interior of Duke, but I bet it is gorgeous.

Georgetown is pretty new as well, they have a really nice campus. Personally, the buildings are not going to make a bit of difference in my decision making :D

Just wondering if there's anyone else on here who got into the JD/LLM program? Thoughts?

Did you send in a LOCI? You seem like you want Duke badly and would probably attend if admitted. It might be a good idea. Some people had success sending in updates and being accepted a few days afterwards.

Good luck! FWIW, I am still on 11/14 UR so you definitely aren't the only one.

I would 100% attend. I kinda of sent in a LOCI at the beginning of the month... so I just don't want to bombard them with extra stuff. I'm not sure if it would help or hurt me at this point

I'm sorta surprised to read this. Why Duke? I thought you were more of a Cornell gal for some reason. (I'm trying to decide and Duke was never in my plans, but it's now the highest-ranked school to which I'm admitted.)

Anyone besides Mordecai invites heard from Duke's financial aid?

Nothing here. I think the money starts flowing in March.

Second UR today, 2/1 and 2/7 after completing it on 1/31. It was a PT app but hopefully the relative quickness is a good sign.

I'm sure this was mentioned but does anyone know whether they send information about a possible Mordecai with the acceptance letter or later on? Optimistically assuming I'd still have a shot at consideration or even an acceptance to begin with.

That is the worst! It seems like Duke gives out decisions daily so you never know

I'm still trying to decide whether my update from 11/28 to 1/24 was a good thing or a bad thing. Probably just some dude randomly hitting the update button on RD applicants so that we all think they are working on them while they sort through the "priority" applicants.

Went UR 11/28... I'm starting to worry that 169 is the magic number
