Did WL/reject show up on the status tracker or only via email?

Whoa lots of movement. Sorry to all who were WL/denied. Had you all gone UR2 / DLS or were any of you still in UR1?

Pretty unimpressed, to be honest. About 2/3's of what I've gotten at higher ranked schools :?

negotiate!

WLed. I'm assuming if we don't want to remain on the WL, we should just email back saying so? There didn't seem to be a link to a page for how to do it.

Any idea on the timeline post UR3? Went UR3 on 3/17 (and thankfully was not a part of the WL/Ding wave) - when did everyone else hear after going UR3?

Am I correct in my understanding that Duke's first deposit is binding? It says you have to turn in the deposit along with the enrollment form and withdraw all other applications. So I won't be able to ride out any waitlists?

I believe it says "schools that you've been ACCEPTED to"

According to this post by Asha, schools aren't allowed to make you withdraw apps that haven't received a final decision (rejection/admission).

Anyone from Duke's priority reserve see any movement? I was put on PR on March 6, and I sent in a LOCI and a Why Duke. But at this point, I am pretty much taking it as a rejection.

Really excited for ASW this weekend but also really nervous about financial aid. I won't be going to law school if the money at Duke isn't right, so here's keeping my fingers crossed.
