Sorry to hear that. I'm sure you'll have a lot of great options with that LSAT though. Was this via email?
Yeah I got the e-mail just barely. 10 days exactly since application
Obviously as a noobie at this type of thing, I'm a little worried about overall prospects. Does TLS have one of those very helpful FAQs for "What to do after being Waitlisted"?
I'm not sure about an official FAQ, but I do know that if you're serious about attending duke, Id definitely write a letter of continued interest, detailing why you love duke and how certain you are of attending if admitted. I'd wait a little while before doing that though, because in another month or so you'll have other decisions and will be able to better gauge your feelings towards duke. From what I've learned, the two most important things about getting accepted off a WL are: 1) write an awesome LOCI and 2) update them on anything you've done since applying (updated transcripts, new honors, new jobs/volunteering, etc). With your LSAT, I would rate your chances as fairly high. LSN can give you more info about who got accepted off of Duke's wait list last year, and when that happened.
