I had the general questions, why law, what will you contribute at duke, any financial info, and time for questions. Also messed up my Skype username so I started five minutes late. Make sure you have it 100% right or your email open in case there's a problem.
Duke is probably my top choice now, I'm hoping the financials end up working out.


What do you mean by "any financial info"?

Whoops, looks like I didn't finish that thought when I was typing. They ask if there is any additional financial information that you would like the committee to know that isn't already in your CSS profile. I used this question to give info regarding how I plan on funding my legal education and reiterate that I am 100% paying for it myself.


No one asked me that. I was only asked to give merit-based info that wasn't apparent

Could be because I opted to not do CSS


Did you write a thank you?

I feel that (10/9 for me)... im pretty fed up with them at this point - think it is just worse with duke since we see all these PT folks hear back so quick. Just tell me in or out, don't care which one now !!

+1. Do they normally take this long for RD applicants? I admit I haven't looked at past Duke threads for this info yet.

I've tried looking on MyLSN's timeline charting function but it's hard to get a good read on it since so many applicants are PT.

Mine would have been today. Got WL email last night at 6:30pm. Not a shock, I'm a splitter. Had no change in status checker after UR2 a couple days ago.
