I feel this way about SO many schools right now. I submitted to Duke in early December, but with NYU and UCB, I submitted in late October, I'm at their medians, and I STILL haven't heard back.

I think these assholes have forgotten how badly they need my scores and tuition.

Questions driven by pure boredom on a weekend: Is there a consensus estimate for wait time for non-PT from UR2 to decision?


Based on the extremely small sample size in this thread, it looks like 7-10 days including weekends. If anyone has a better estimate, feel free to correct me. Still waiting as well (UR2-2/10).

"I am very pleased to inform you that you have been selected for admission to Duke Law School. ... 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. The Financial Aid Office will send you the scholarship application form and instructions via email. Since you may qualify for a Duke Law scholarship, I encourage you to apply. If you apply, you will receive your official admission letter and a decision on your scholarship application soon after the Committee completes the scholarship review.

If you do not plan to apply for scholarship assistance but wish to consider an offer of admission from Duke, please inform our office so that we can officially admit you now."


Has anyone else received an email like this before? It indicates I was admitted but also says I have yet to be officially admitted--what does this mean? Does anyone know if I could fill out financial need and scholarship forms and subsequently be denied admission? (I highly doubt it but am just checking because the wording of the email threw me off a little.) Additionally, do they send this email out to everyone or does the fact that they talk about scholarships mean I actually might have an above average shot at getting one?

Any insight from anyone else further along in the process is highly appreciated!


Have you gotten the form yet? I haven't :/

I thought there was a link in the admission email somewhere, but I could be misremembering. It's also available through the generic admitted students portal.

Just got waitlisted via e-mail. Pretty surprised given my cycle thus far, but not particularly bothered by it. Good luck to everyone else waiting to hear back. My UR2 date was 2/6.

Sorry to hear about all the WLs.

east-coaster, are they still sending emails, or did you just check your email / wait to post? I know the Duke adcomm has weird hours...

WL for me as well. Dates:

-Submit 19 Sep
-Complete 20 Sep
-UR1 7 Oct
-UR2 9 Feb
-WL 17 Feb

<<<25th GPA, >>75th LSAT (PM for details)

Like the poster above who had a ridiculous timeline, that's a long time just to get thrown on the waitlist!

Good luck everyone else!
