Originally, I hadn't considered applying, but with the PT invitation and taking a closer look at the school I realize it's a great option. Since my GPA is super low for Duke is a Why Duke necessary? How much of a boost is writing the Why Duke essay? I'll definitely include the other optional-- the diversity essay. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!


Hi, I cannot give you the defininte answer to your questions but I had similar numbers (sort of) with you (3.58/ 171) so wanted to chime in. I applied through PT but I didn't do Why Duke essay (only did diversity essay) and I got put on a priority reserve list. If you really want to go to Duke and want to avoid the possibility of being waitlisted, I think you should write the essay. I'm not sure whether it would make a big difference, but you have nothing to lose and it's better to be safe than sorry. There are many pple who get in without Why Duke essay but theses people have amazing GPA and LSAT numbers.


Thanks so much for the advice. I'm definitely writing a "Why Duke" essay-- although even with that my chances look slim (especially considering you got priority reserve list and my numbers are so similar/worse than yours).

Is it weird that I still haven't received an admissions package from Duke? I was admitted on 10/23 and my parents said I still haven't gotten anything in the mail...

Hi everyone! I submitted my application yesterday =)

Just wondering - when should I expect it to go 'complete' ?

My current status is 'Processing incomplete file.' There are two things listed under the 'Requirements' section (application, and CAS report) and they both have red check marks next to them - how is this not considered 'complete'? On LSAC it says 'completed' and 'sent'

This was one of my first applications I submitted so I am paranoid that I did something wrong. Is this normal? Should I be worried at all at this point? thanks in advance

Been "ready for review" since 10/20, Regular Applicant, but reach numbers. How long did it take RD applicants to go under review/when should we be hearing decisions roughly?

Does anyone know how Duke chooses people for PT? Or how many people are even PT?
