I will note that I am on the regular waitlist and received it with the subject line "Duke Law School Waitlist Update." The body of the email may be different. Mine indicated that they would be making a few additional offers over the next few weeks and that they would continue to monitor class size and could make offers up through August.


Yeah, sounds like what I got. Mine was almost certainly exactly the same, just with PR instead of WL.


Regular wait list and got the same thing


What kind of money might be had off of the WL?

I know of a few individuals who received between 45k and 67.5k. Anyone know of anything higher?

Nothing on TLS or LSN. Wouldn't expect anything until tomorrow at the earliest, after they reduce the waitlist to those still interested. Seems to be a few withdrawals on LSN, so there may be some movement in the next couple weeks, as the email said.

Is this the proverbial busting of the WL dam? Waiting is exhausting.

I know it's hard, but hang in there. I had emailed admissions about the possibility of re-applying next cycle and speaking to an adcom about the re-application process. I had lost all hope until my interview invite, so stay on them and try not to be to discouraged.

Radio silence. Holding out the slightest sliver of hope. Haven't seen any indication that they've released people from the wait list.
