I have been complete, ready for review since late october, also RD and not PT.

This seems to be a theme with my apps. What are your stats like? I'm <25th GPA / >75th LSAT, I'm guessing that makes a difference in my case? They probably don't want to admit me, but are holding my app just in case they get super desperate later...

I know a lot of people who got off the waitlist. PR is probably a little better if anything. You got this.


Thanks, man! If you turn out to be right, lunch on me in Durham next year.

Checking in. Submitted 12/14, went complete 12/16 for PT but will not go under review until 1/2 because it was submitted after the 13th (bummer).

Applied in late October. I had to send in a dean's certification. I think they confirmed it in the middle of November.

Just updated to 12/19. :shock:

Applied in late October as well. Hopefully this means we'll be hearing tomorrow!

Got priority reserve today.
Went complete on 10/09. 172+3.83
Is this priority reserve thing just a waiting list under a better name?
So heartbroken.
The email terrified me a lot: applicant pool is "exceptionally strong"and the competition is "particularly fierce".
OMG, are my other applications doomed?

Did you send a Why Duke? Your stats look solid for Duke, they will likely want more commitment.

What does Priority Reserve mean? Is it different from the general waiting list? Also, does it matter when I accept the Priority Reserve spot? Like would I be higher up on the list (aka more likely to be let in) if I accept earlier, or does it not matter when I choose to accept it?

Sorry if this was answered earlier; I couldn't find any explanation on Duke's website or this forum.

Correct me if I'm uninformed, but according to the musings I've heard, it's possible that Priority Reserve essentially puts you on the top of the pile for RD applications. This may be entirely incorrect though.

In the meantime, please feel free submit updated or additional information such as letters of recommendation, transcripts for work completed since your application was submitted, or any new honors or awards received.


How would I go about sending any of that stuff? Should I send it online via LSAC or via snail mail? Is it appropriate to send a LOCI in this case?

I sent an email to the admission office with a LOCI. I think it's better than the waitlist because the waitlist at Duke doesn't get a decision til May at the earliest. At least we'll know SOMETHING before then.

ALSO

might want to check out this specific video on Duke Campout, the process by which basketball season tickets are distributed. It's a fun event with a lot of drinking and merriment.
