I haven't gotten any sort of decision but I've been speaking with the admissions office lately. The sense I got was that their class is full as of now, but as deadlines approach, they will begin using the list. Basically the beginning of April is what I could get out of them.

I'm also going up to visit on Monday, so hopefully that will improve their view of me/speed up the process.


Full as in Duke has exhausted its acceptances...or full as in the number of deposits. I'm assuming the first?

They used the word full as in they won't be accepting anyone off of the PR list until they have an idea how many withdrawals there will be. So yes, acceptances I think if that's is what you're asking.

Edit- I have no idea how that applies to people are held or just haven't heard yet. There may be more of those accepted soon but I wasn't really asking about that.

I;m on the regular WL and I hope and pray that there are enough withdrawals. I am 100% Duke ...if they will take me :-(

Trying to gage chances here... How many of you are still on PR and if admitted would have a greater than 75% chance of attending

It's a big issue of money for me, which I'm assuming may be hard to come by off a waitlist. If I don't receive a good chunk, there's no chance I'll be at Duke, but if I get enough to compete with other schools I'd say Duke is my #1 non-Harvard choice.

Overall I'd say about 20% chance I would attend if accepted, but the ball is more in Duke's court than mine.

Neither, actually, though your first impression is close. It's your 0L summer, 3 normal academic years plus you're required to do one of the summer institutes, which takes 6 weeks of your 1L summer. You still have the other half of your 1L summer and your entire 2L summer available for work.

Is there even any chance this late for an acceptance? Or am I looking at a waitlist at best?

Someone who is on the Priority Reserve got in contact with admissions last week. Admissions said that they were done with acceptances....so hopefully you made the cut :D

Just to clarify this, they said they were full at the time, not necessarily that they wouldn't have any more straight acceptances. Basically more people are going to be accepted in a variety of ways, they just need a few withdrawals first.

OMGSH!!!!!!!! Thank you! BTW you can just send an e-mail to admissions saying you would like to withdraw your application because you have decided to attend another institute

Hi, everyone. I withdrew yesterday (from a summer start program, so not sure how that changes things), so hopefully that frees up another spot for one of you!

I was accepted yesterday (off the PR) to a summer start program. So thank you maybe!
