even people who applied ED have gotten money, so I think there's a good chance WL people will get some too!

Congrats! Were you PR? Did you get a call or feeler first?

Yes, PR. No call or feeler. Just an email from Dean Hoye that says I am admitted.

My stats are 2.7/173... Guess they needed lsat.
My WE is unique for a law school applicant though so the numbers don't really tell the story. I'm not sure what the decision will mean for me yet, as I've got family in Durham, but will try to make the decision quickly so I can withdraw and let someone else in if I decide against it .

So lucky all of you, I'm jealous!

Seems like WL movement is really starting to pick up.

Anyone in the recent wave get merit info in their email or in their Duke swag pack? I still need to go through all of mine but I don't think there's any mention of that noise from my brief thumb through.

Also just for anyone else... I don't know if this will be the same for everyone or later waves, but they were super generous with a deposit deadline - ~10 days - compared to what others seem to do.

Nothing particularly special that I know of. I'm K-JD at an Ivy, if that is anything. Wrote a LOCI, and also got an additional strong LOR after I got regular WL. I am planning to attend Duke but would return to my alma mater in the unlikely event I get off their WL. Feel free to PM if you have more questions / comments.

Anyone have any thoughts whether/when financial aid decisions will be made for admitted waitlisted people?

Accepted off WL a few days ago, had to withdraw as the military just informed me they are not ready to let me go just yet. Hopefully that means one of you will be getting the call soon!

For those interested, David Levi, Duke's dean, is going to be stepping down in 2018.

Keep hoping! I'm still watching closely for the Spivey/counter-clockwise/counter cycle trickle effect. If/when other schools really start cherry-picking other school's admits (HYS rung first, goes the theory), those empty seats most likely aren't staying empty ... 8)

How many people do you guys think have gotten in off the waitlist or will get in off the waitlist for Duke?
