Duke Law Waitlist Class of 2018 Thread

Postby OhBoyOhBortles » Thu Apr 16, 2015 12:16 pm

I didn't see a thread for us yet, please alert me if I overlooked it!

A place to let out all of your anxiety, commiserate with others, and perhaps find a little hope here and there! Welcome to the Duke Waitlist.

What we know:

Priority Reserve interviews are being scheduled starting on 4/20. Call the admissions office to schedule one if you have not already.

The deposit deadline is 4/24, so spots should be opening up over the next couple weeks!

Plenty of anecdotal evidence throughout TLS that plenty of people get off the WL (and many with $$), and statistically speaking, http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=225363, we can say that it is just under 1 in 5 of the WL that does eventually gain admittance.

Good luck to all of you, and please keep us all updated! Also, please report interview stories after yours takes place! Thanks.

How do we know priority reserve interviews are being scheduled on 4/20? I haven't received any emails from Duke since my PR decision about 6 months ago

edit- Also would these all be in-person interviews on campus in Durham?

Personal interaction. And yes, i think interviews are in-person/tandem with visits and tours. I think it would be worthwhile for you to contact them and see if you could set something up over Skype though if you're interested. Did you write a LOCI? Also, when I said scheduled on...that may not have been clear. You can schedule them now, the interviews just aren't being held until 4/20 and after.

Checking In. Some chance I end up here, but no chance I ever become a Duke basketball fan.

Good information... although it's a little weird they haven't sent an email or something to all PR candidates letting us know about the interviews.

And I've sent 1 LOCI so far. I don't really have any material for another one, other than to restate my interest in Duke

I sent an LOCI literally the day before I got my WL decision, and cannot visit because I'm out of the country until the end of July. Not sure what more I can do to pursue this...

Did anyone just get an email to confirm if you are interested in still being on the priority reserve?

Yup, got one too. Also I posted this in the regular thread, but it may be more appropriate here. Should WL/PR people send in FAFSA info to Duke?

Yeah you should. I was told by another law school that they recommend you turn in all of the schools you are still considering.

Hey guys, this may sounds stupid.

What is the difference between PR and Regular Waitlist?

Thanks

The waitlist gets pulled from fairly regularly as well. I wouldn't worry about the semantics as much as I would focus on drafting a well-written LOCI.

Also, just got in off PR. Good luck to the rest of you! Should likely be some more movement over the next week or two!

Got an updating mail indicates they're going to pull people from regular wait-list. Fingers crossed!
