Not necessarily. I was UR2 3/7, and got in.

Hi!
I'm a mid jan complete and a 2/18 UR with no movement since! Feeling really anxious because I applied for the summer semester start!! Non traditional applicant with very high Gpa but medium LSAT. I figured I should of heard something by now since I think the deposit is due for summer starts by April 1st. Really really really want to go to Duke! Any comments or suggestions are welcomed. I don't know if I should send in a Loci now or just wait it out.

PRd, I hope they interview me so I can combine that with a campus visit, I have no clue what the area is like. Also, go Duke for working on apps on the weekend!

Mine updated too. Did anyone that was accepted have their country of residence update?

I was wondering this too since I am in the exact same boat!

thought the merit-only scholarship application was going to have a bunch of supplemental essay questions or something. pleasantly surprised to finally open it and see that it literally involved checking one box and signing my name

Priority Reserve on a Sunday. Who does that? I thought Duke had the same policies as Chic-Fil-A !

According to Mike Spivey (you can search for his threads), its better to send a LOCI before a decision is made. So yes, send it now.

It seems to me sending a LOCI now could only help, and in no way harm.

Priority reserve today. Might submit a LOCI...haven't decided yet. Have some decent scholly offers from other schools so not sure if it would be worth it. Anyone know how long it takes Duke to pull people off of the priority reserve list and if they give scholarships to them?

Waitlisting on the weekends? This is the only time I could sit back and not vigorously check my email and status checker

Wow! Duke is working on the weekend! I guess this is a good thing, so that we can get our decisions faster!

In this afternoon! Literally the only day in many weeks that I didn't check my status checker because I was on a full day road trip and, um, it's a Sunday. But really excited nonetheless.

Don't give up hope if you are place on PR.
