No real information in there just "provisionally accepted" and interviews for scholarships will be in December.


Did your acceptance letter personalize the second or so sentence based on your major?

Also, Duke is very smart with their PT program: I'm like super hyped about Duke now :) Whenever I am taking a break from writing another app essay I just think about Duke :lol:


lol hadn't noticed that until just now! It mentions my future interest in a specific field of law. Wasn't really a big mention and seems kind of generic (just adding 3-5 words specific to a candidate) but it's a nice touch.

Mines literally just two words: my major haha. Did you write about that interest? It's not like I checked it off anywhere so I was wondering what they do for like political science majors

I think about 90% of them come out in 10 days so don't expect sooner. Maybe as early as 6 or 7.

So I got a fee waiver but not a PT invite with my June score (GPA < 25th & LSAT = 75th). I've since bumped by LSAT by a few points. Anybody have an idea if I would be in consideration for a PT invite now? I haven't seen much love for splitters with regards to PT

I got a fee waiver with my old score (GPA<25th, 25<LSAT<50) and just got PT with my new above their 75th.

yes. I had waiver before and PT now. just email them in case you didn't get considered, you can solicit PT invites. my waiver rolled over from last cycle so that might it might be different.

Thanks for the data point! If I don't see anything soon, I'll just send them an email and ask

I'm just shy of being a splitter (>75 LSAT, gpa just above 25) and got a PT invite today. I was below 75 LSAT with my June score and didn't even get a fee waiver, improved, and got both waiver and PT so definitely doable!
