Unfortunately, I do not remember what page I was led to after I clicked "I will apply via priority track." Does anyone have this information? Do I need to do *anything* different on LSAC, or just submit my app as normal and they'll link it up?

Thanks.


you don't need to do anything differently on LSAC. after you registered for priority track, you should've received an email from mhill@law.duke.edu (this went to my spam, FYI), which said:

Thank you for your interest in Duke Law School! We have received your
registration for our Priority Track application process. When your application
becomes complete it will receive an immediate, comprehensive review and
we will email a response within ten days. (For instance, if your application
becomes complete on October 1, you would receive a response by October 11.)
The response will be a notification
that you have been provisionally admitted, waitlisted, denied, or held for
further review by the Admissions Committee. Because our office will be closed
at the end of December, applications that become complete between
December 12-31, 2016 will receive a decision after January 3, 2017.

Please remember that your application must be complete before we can
begin the Priority Track review. A complete file includes your LSAC Credential
Assembly Service Report, two letters of recommendation, your resume, and
a personal statement. It usually takes us a few days to confirm that your
materials are complete, even if you submit them all at once. Your application
fee will be waived automatically when you apply via LSAC; you should not
need to enter a code. You do not need to indicate on your application that
you are eligible for Priority Track review. When your application is complete,
you will receive an e-mail confirming that you are being reviewed through
the Priority Track process.

We encourage you to begin learning about Duke Law by exploring our
website, https://law.duke.edu . However, you will get the best sense of our
intellectual and social community by visiting the campus, where you can take
a tour, sit in on a class, attend one of the regular talks and conferences, and
meet with a member of our admissions staff. Information about arranging a
visit can be found here: https://law.duke.edu/admis/visit/ .

We appreciate your interest in Duke Law, and look forward to reviewing your
application.

I second this, went to my spam as well

This is why I love this forum! Thanks everyone- it went to my spam too. I even checked there, but couldn't see it amongst the fifty "HDJOBSEARCH SECURITY, LOGISTICS, SALES POSITIONS" messages in there.

Will this change to "Under Review" once they start to look at it, or will it go straight from that to "Accept/Reject/Etc" since I am PT?


I am PT, changed to under review for me.

When did your application go complete? How often are you checking the website?


I went complete on 9/2, under review on 9/6. Too often.

I'm barely below median GPA and >75th for LSAT. Any reason why I wouldn't have gotten PT?

I just added NC to my list of interested states? Might that be the cause? thx
