Who knows if it'll come tonight, tomorrow, or in 9 days. My attempt at being prescient seems to have not worked out very well.

Just an FYI, last year there was definitely a status update to "Decision Sent; Watch for Email" on the day that the decision emails were received. Some of the first people stayed under review for 3 days and some for 1 day, but almost all of them got in. Good luck everyone!

It is my understanding that we are supposed to request them from our undergrad, so that's the route I went

Same. So damn excited. Duke is #1 for me, financial stuff allowing.




Same here. Unbelievably excited. Hopefully the decision comes at 5 like they did the first day they went under review last year.


Are we thinking that they are going to come out today?



Apparently not :shock: Tough to wait, but in perspective the turnaround is still hella quick. Crossing fingers for all y'all (and myself)

Just threw my Hail Mary in the form of a binding ED application. Fully expecting a rejection or waitlist (163/3.83) in the next 10 days, but feels good to have one application under my belt nonetheless.

Good luck to everyone!

I'm File Under Review. If emails don't go out today will we be waiting until Monday or is there a chance of a weekend decision?

No, only took in once. However, my plan is to re-take and reapply next cycle. I'm only applying to a few top choices this cycle so I have the option to attend next fall under one of these highly improbable scenarios:

1) I give the retake(s) my best shot and don't improve by much or at all.
2) Some totally out of the blue event prevents a retake or proper studying.

Plus, with medians dropping the way they are, I thought it wouldn't hurt to cast a line and see what happens.

I'm sure this was discussed already somewhere in the beginning of the thread, but I only see mention of soliciting Fee Waivers. Has anyone given it a shot with emailing Duke asking for the Priority Track invite? Presumptuous, I know.

Congrats to everyone! I'm excited to apply and hopefully join the admitted club.

If possible, can people that receive a decision and don't have GPA/LSAT already in their profiles post their stats? Would be helpful to all of us trying to figure out this cycle.
