Congrats, Pozzo! Did you write a Why Duke?


Yep, Why Duke, PT, >75ths


Also PT, >75ths, but no Why Duke. Hopefully they give me a chance to interview. I find out tomorrow.

They only interview for scholarship consideration, and that's after acceptance

QUESTION: I applied PT and went complete on 1/13. Also went UR that day. Nothing has changed on my status checker until today. Checked my status checker just now and the Current Status Date now says 1/20. Does this mean I am UR2? Is this normal?

I wrote a Why Duke too.

Sorry, night. Hang in there.


Thanks. Congrats on the acceptance, btw!


Now I'm just trying to figure out what went wrong with my application.

Pretty devastated tbh. It's my first result of the cycle and I'm worried some part of my app went horribly wrong and Michigan/UVA/Cornell will all waitlist/reject me too. :|

PT. LSAT and GPA both above 75ths. Did not write a Why Duke, though. Not sure where to go from here, since I would only attend with a good scholarship. Do people ever get good scholarships off the waitlist?


I'm not sure. I'd recommend peeking at LSN to see what they show.

grades??

Depends. Some do, some don't. But the likely reason you didn't get in is because you didn't write an Why Duke? The ad com at Duke has explicitly said publicly a Why Duke is an important part of the application and they have no problem denying people like you without knowing why they want to go to Duke. Remember, Duke is the 3rd smallest t14 behind Yale and Chicago with only about 200 students a class. They truly do care about having people wanting to come to Duke because the class size is so small.

Is a Mordecai/full tuition possible if one did not get nominated for it in the initial correspondence about the financial aid interviewing process months ago?

My anxiety about possibly not getting into Duke because of a lack of interest is getting too much. Writing a Why X today for Duke.

For those of you that wrote Why X essays, what did you include in your essay?
