WL email here too.. fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccckkkk. Can't land a T-14 in the south. This stings a bit... More than the previous rejections.

This was the top choice for a while, but I made it into 2 of my top 3. I've been a life-long Duke fan... Guess that ends today. Good luck everyone!

Sorry man :( Keep your head up. Did your status checker change to reflect the waitlist?

I got a letter in the mail today with scholarship info. I sent in the form shortly after New Year's and got an email on the 26th that said they had received the form. In that email they said as long as you submit the form by March 1st, you can "expect to receive a decision no later than" March 16th. HTH

Exciting. I also got the 1-26 email, but I am still waiting on the letter. Were you also on priority track and does the award info appear in your status checker?

I hadn't been checking my status checker, but now that I look, it did update. Under mailings, there's 4 things-- PT app complete notification, welcome packet, scholarship form received, and scholarship decision mailed (2/9). I'm in Texas, so it got here pretty fast. Good luck!

I don't think Duke is holding off before releasing a wave of acceptances. We may be doomed :cry:

If i am going to get waitlisted, then I just want to know! I've been complete for 3 months!

I'm not sure of your numbers, but it seems like they are managing the apps to keep the LSAT median at 170 and practice yp. some of the highly qualified 168 and 169ers have to get in eventually. At least, I hope!

I'm also not sure Duke will be able to keep the 170 median. Many 170's and even 169ers..have gotten into Berkeley and above. Not that Duke isn't a great school, but given the 20% decrease in test takers it might be hard to keep that median
