Kretzy, you must not be from the South. :) Anything below 70 is too cold for me, thanks.

I really hope they get to some of us ED applicants this week. It looks as if we are next on the chopping block...

Thanks! if others who received this will post their numbers it would helpful! Duke is a top top choice of mine and I want to see how legitimate of a shot I have at actually receiving a scholarship!



I got it, and I assumed that it was a generic letter that everyone received. Stats are 173/3.9 FWIW.



My letter read, "Don't bother applying for a scholarship. You're too impressive for us to let you slip through our fingers. You're getting a Mordecai." A few lines down was a picture of Kobe taking a deep J with the phrase "Count it!" and Dean Hoye's signature.

As for numbers, I am maggie in male form.

I've never seen you both in the same (or any) room, at the same (or any) time.

Just saying.

Did I mention I'm a diagnosed schizophrenic? Probably why they're throwing the Mordecai at me.

How about 10/12 :( WL for sure.


Trucker I've been under review way before that even :oops: Crossing our fingers for us!!


Not necessarily--I'm in the same boat, but it looks like last year there were a handful of applicants who submitted early and received an acceptance in Jan/Feb (most with $ too):

My sympathies go out to all you month+ UR people.

Just curious, has anyone else but me been "ready for review" for over a month now?

I was admitted on 11/18 and still haven't received my admissions packet. How long do I wait before I call/email? I'm in northern NY if that means anything.

I've been UR since 10/14. My sense from skimming this thread is that this is unfortunate.

I have been under review since 11/20, but my status date changed to 12/2 last week. Where is my news???? I hate the waiting.

I went complete at Duke on 11/3 and have been stuck at "File Ready for Review" since then. Stats are 3.5x/169. Anyone have a guess at what this means? Does Duke typically keep borderline people in pre-review purgatory til the end of the cycle (March/April) or is this just the actual backup of apps?

Yea, no. I'm 178/3.58 (and admitted to nyu already so likely nothing glaringly off with my app) and been "file ready for review" since 11/4. I'm pretty sure I'm not borderline for Duke. Actually its quite annoying. Curious as to why I never got a PT offer. Also sitting around waiting at UVA and Michigan...

I was thinking the same thing. I've been ready for review since 11/4. 169/3.66

I have the same GPA and an LSAT in the 99th percentile as well. I'm in at UVA, but that's probably because I'm in state. I'm an 'Admit' on LSP for both Michigan and Duke but I've yet to hear anything after submitting in early October for both. I know my GPA is at or below 25th for both but seriously? Am I really looking at a WL?

I was "ready for review" for almost a month, then under review for less than a week before I was accepted... so don't worry about it.

And I'm also still waiting for UVA & Mich even though ppl who applied later than me / with lower numbers are getting in. The wait's killing me.
