UR1 was 2/18. Does this mean a decision isn't far off? I saw that most people who got their decisions yesterday were UR2 on 2/26...is that kind of turnaround typical?


Same deal: UR1 on 2/18, UR2 today. Hoping for a quick decision!

It was sunny today in my hometown and we have not seen the sun in quite a while and I must admit that it made me rethink withdrawing from Duke's waitlist. The pamphlets they sent me over a year ago about how it is 65 degrees there right now certainly are making me wish Duke was a sold option...

I don't know, man. Could go either way. I'm guessing it's good because of your numbers.

As a waitlist applicant, would someone mind copying and pasting the wording from the priority reserve e-mails? I would just like to understand the distinction.

Thank you for applying to Duke Law School. I am writing to inform you of the status of your application for admission. We have completed a thorough review of your application, and would like to offer you a space on our Priority Reserve list for the 2013 entering class.

As you are likely aware, Duke is among the smallest of the national law schools. This year's applicant pool has already proven exceptionally strong, and competition is particularly fierce for a seat in the Class of 2016. Although we are unable to offer you admission at this time, the Committee was impressed with your application and you will remain under consideration as the review process continues over the next several months.

Please keep our office informed of any changes to your contact information. You will be contacted initially by email or telephone if you are selected for admission.

We appreciate your patience during this lengthy admission process, and we will do our best to reach a final decision on your candidacy as soon as possible. In the meantime, please feel free to submit updated or additional information, such as letters of recommendation, transcripts for work completed since your application was submitted, a statement of continued interest, or any new honors or awards received.

Maybe not! I didn't write a why duke nor do I have any ties in the area. Also I don't get the difference between a priority reserve and a waitlist!?!? I thought people said Priority Reserve was for the Priority Track people? :?

Yeah I find it very confusing too. I'm surprised there's nothing on their website about it at all. It seems like some PR people do get in though.

I can't imagine ties really matter all that much. Looking at the LSN graph, it seems that 170 is a big hump - lots of 169/3.5+s waitlisted.

Yeah, that 170 is the magic number. Never has the difference of 1 number mattered so much in my life. Its crazy what the difference between a 170/3.7 and 169/3.7 can be in terms of acceptances and more significantly scholarships. Good Luck!

Nah, PT is completely separate from PR. PR is basically the preferred waitlist, from my understanding.

Thanks VeeD101.

My interpretation is that Priority Reserve is more like a "Held" designation. Anyone else have any guesses?
