I hope so!! Although mine still says the same thing since I was admitted PT back in November :(


Good to know! You interviewed within the first two weeks I assume?


Yes I did! So hopefully my status checker turns blank like yours assuming that's a good sign, haha :lol:

Did you go DLS? And what are your stats?

Also went UR2 on 2/2 so I'm wondering if this is a good or bad thing

So this priority reserve... when do they really start picking people off of it? Not sure if it's like a traditional waitlist or more like a hold... getting mixed messages. I got the PT invite, have nearly identical stats to cooldog above (congrats btw), and got hit with a PR decision several weeks back. I submitted a "Why Duke" with my application and sent in a LOCI almost immediately after getting my PR decision, but it's been complete silence since.

What do Duke want from me? Getting my hopes up like that and showing no real interest in letting me in despite my >75th percentile LSAT and interest-showing efforts... it's really getting to me. :?

Sorry to hear about that. I didn't get a PT invite because my stats were lower before January (167), and I wasn't really expecting an acceptance because i got WL by NW and Cornell :( The only reason I could think of is 1. my Why Duke was personal because I'm a dukie, and 2. I did work for duke law clinic and visited the AO personally. Also not getting a fee waiver from duke from early on almost crashed me.

That Duke law clinic experience and Why Duke sound pretty awesome. Cornell acting weird this cycle isn't new, but I'm surprised NW didn't straight-up let you in. Maybe this is just a really weird cycle with the number of high LSAT scorers being down and schools playing things a little more conservatively until later in the cycle... I hope. Cornell have been letting some people off their waitlist early for showing great interest, for example. Congrats on Duke anyway, it seems right for you.

I think if you have the chance, calling or visiting duke law might be a good idea cause I know duke in general really cares about personal relationships. LOL i think I bombed the NW interview--literally the worst interview Ive ever done; I froze in front of the camera and could not think straight at all.

Same thing here. I think they come through snail mail. Also I believe the tracker will be updated eventually to indicate they mailed them out


Yes as TexasENG said, scholarship info does come through snail mail and the status checker will change when it's been mailed out!

My interviewer also said anyone who interviewed within the first two weeks should hear by "late Jan. or early Feb." but I've got nothing yet :roll:


Just to clarify, I checked the checker yesterday and my decision date was still there, sobit looks like they're adjusting the checkers which I think might be an indication of it coming soon. But this is speculation of course lol


I hope so!! Although mine still says the same thing since I was admitted PT back in November :(


Good to know! You interviewed within the first two weeks I assume?


"Scholarship decision mailed" added today under mailings. Date was blank yesterday.
