Dook has been very interesting this cycle with their reduced standards (and that's not criticizing anyone, I was at one median and well below another, maybe even the worst candidate they have accepted so far) and their UVA-esque splitter tactics. This cycle is going to be epic across the board, I can feel it in my bones.

I got (another) congratulations package in the mail today. This time the letter was from Dean Levi. Pretty nice touches from Duke.

You have over a 4.0, and they requested to see your fall grades before they make a decision? (presumably because your 4.0 + is a premium that they want to be sure you keep I imagine?)

My application has been under review for 8 days. Should I be worried?

I apologize if it has been asked already earlier. Did anyone got in yet without applying priority track?

Just paid for my app to be sent! Is there anything I have to do on LSAC after paying? My app is completely filled out and my recs are assigned. Sorry for what may be a stupid question, this is my first app of the cycle.

Also, do you guys know if they count weekends as part of the 10 day response (I'm a PT applicant)?

Thank you and congratulations to everyone who's been admitted!

If your academic summary report is complete and you've sent the app, you're good to go. Also it's 10 business days. It's almost always business days.

Congrats on applying and best of luck.


It's actually 10 days, period, from the time your app goes complete.

Really? Cause mine went complete on the 11th. Does that mean I'll be receiving a decision today? :lol:

I'm confused. On LSAC it says the status of my Duke application is complete, but the status of my report is "sent." Also, under the law school reports page in the "my status" box in the upper right corner it says 1 request received, 0 reports sent. What does all of this mean?

Duke has not emailed me. Do they typically follow up shortly after with a tracker? I'm guessing I haven't been contacted because it's a weekend. Thank you for your help!

Wow, thanks! Just to make sure I have this correct, when I log in under "Mailings" it says "Priority Track app complete notification" as the date for 10/11. Is it ten days from that day?

Status checker just changed to "decision made, look for email." Very nervous but also kinda excited. Does anyone know how late they send out emails? I was hoping for a batch to go out at 5

For future people wondering this, I think that's the date, and your next post would corroborate that...

I got mine at 11PM. So... any time now! :P Best of luck!


Thanks! I was hoping not to have to wait that late lol, but I guess it's still coming earlier than I was expecting. Fingers crossed!
