Accepted!! So psyched because it's my first one of the cycle.

I'm a PT applicant and today was the 10th day exactly after going complete on 1/6 and I had two UR dates. The status checker changed before I got my e-mail

awww thanks guyz :oops:

so my e-mail said "You will be officially admitted to Duke Law School when you complete the next step of our admission process – applying for financial aid and scholarship assistance."

What's this all about? I thought everyone applicant was under consideration for merit scholarships. I wasn't aware of an application process.

I was checking their financial aid website yesterday filling out my spreadsheet of FAFSA and needaccess deadline info. Based on their site, everyone fills this out after acceptance for consideration. I was surprised, too.

It's 10 calendar days, so it does include weekends. I got my decision around 9 PM EST on a Friday. Good luck!

Has anybody been outright rejected on PT after having to wait the entire ten days for a decision?

Duke's been known to give decision at all hours on all days. Their adcomm is truly 24/7 it would seem.

What are the criteria for getting PT? I am at their 75th's, and I didn't get PT.

Applied 12/6, and have been UR1 since 12/9...

Insight?

Checking in. PT went complete on 1/8, so I'm also hoping for my first decision of the cycle today. LSAT and GPA >75.

I believe you have to actually apply via PT.

Yeah, but I also think it's invitation-only.
