By the way, excepting deferrals, I think you are the first person on TLS to receive an acceptance and I would not be surprised if you were the first person accepted this cycle at Duke.

Edit: And congrats! That's huge!

I have no idea how they're doing acceptances or what, but gonna go cry now. Last year I thought I didn't have a chance at the T14, now, I don't even know what to say... seriously good luck to everyone and get those apps in early, it helps! And thank you thank you thank you to everyone who helped me with LSAT, essays, etc on TLS. I don't even know what to say right now, it'll be inadequate.

Yeah, but according to LSN, she applied 3 days ago. That's really good turnaround time.

Congrats! Now... when do you hear about merit aid? :wink:

Seriously, well done on being the first TLS admit... possibly first admit anywhere for the 09-10 cycle.

I don't have any absolute "choices" -- it boils down to scholarships/merit aid/visits/and a whole lot of other factors that play into my decision. Obviously I want to go to Duke, otherwise I wouldn't have applied.

Edit: Headin' out for now, gotta go celebrate, good luck to everyone!!!
