Duke will probably have movement from CLS and NYU accepting off their WL. I can't really comment as to any specific numbers, as one must remember Duke Law is a fairly small class.

Thank you and no I was not. I sent in one LOCI and a previous employer sent in an additional LOR for me last week so maybe that helped my application?

Withdrew recently from WL. Loved everything about Duke, but the move to Durham would've been too much for me considering school starts in around 2 months.

Good luck to everyone else waiting!

Yeah I just got an email as well. I'm a reverse splitter. It seems like it could be a general email though so I'm not sure.

It's a general email, assuming you got the one with the brief form.

Yeah, I got it too. It doesn't strike me as a feeler. More like "Hey, there may be a few spots opening later...so do you really want to wait around for another month or two?"

I've deposited at another school and am about to move into a new apartment on Friday. Everything is telling me to withdraw, but for some reason (ehem...hi, ego) I want to ride it out.

I was accepted off the waitlist today for all those wondering if there is still any movement.

My advice would be to send in an additional LOR and to send in a Why Duke? essay. I think it's very important to specifically emphasize why Duke is the best choice for your legal career and aspirations.

Wouldn't play ball? Could you elaborate? I'm assuming they offered you $0.

Also, @Chargers21, thanks!

Any recent WL admits hear anything on financial aid after submitting the scholarship app?
