accepted via PT! LSAT > 75th, GPA < 25th. non-URM. I nearly had a panic attack on day 10.

I wrote a Why Duke, but given how many people on here are stressing about having nothing to say I think it's important to note that the prompts for most of these include what you can contribute to the school (and even without that specification, I don't think you look bad for addressing that). I spent a good part of my "why" essays talking specifically about the kinds of law i'm interested in (my PS wasn't super related to it) and then had about a paragraph tying it into Duke and how Duke addresses those types of law (or Michigan, Northwestern, NYU, etc) at the end--the campus, the classes, the clinics, all of which you can get from googling.

Just my two cents! Congrats to all accepted and good luck to the people who are waiting!!

What time of day have day 10 PT decisions been coming out this cycle? I’m sure some people have said but I don’t want to read back through all 20 pages again

I am not! I applied mid-September though, so that might be why.

I’m in NC so I’ve just been assuming they were all EST since that’s Duke’s time zone.

I'm super stressing. I applied PT and was supposed to hear back early this week. Day 10, first thing in the morning, I got a request for more information- basically for an explanation of an anomalous semester of terrible grades. I responded within the hour and the admissions person said he would add the explanation to my file and continue to review it... now I don't know what to expect. Has anyone heard of something similar happen? Are all bets off for PT now and the timeline could be anything? Should I consider it a reset and give it another 10 days before I start to worry?

Stats are 178/3.65 for what it's worth. Wrote a Why Duke. Status checker says under review with the updated date (so, UR2 I guess). I know the answer is probably just sit back and relax, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had a situation like this.

(This also prompted me to send in a grade addendum to all my other submitted apps. Yikes. Hope that one terrible semester doesn't kill my chances, I'd like to go back in time and give myself a good shake).

With stats like yours, I bet more than anything it's them trying to decide between giving you a lot of money, and a whole lot of money, when they send their offer. Don't stress too much about it, they'll send it once they're ready. I would say give it another 5-6 days after you sent the explanation. If you don't hear anything 10 days after you send, then shoot them an email.

Thanks so much, that helps a ton. I hope you're right! I think I"ll wait until another 10 days after sending the explanation, as you suggest, and then shoot them a polite e-mail if I still haven't heard. Honestly just deciding on another deadline and not worrying about it until then is a huge relief! Thanks!
