I really don't think that I would even qualify, but out of curiosity for those of you who were asked for Mordecai Interviews, when was that in relation to your admission decision? Do you think an interview invite is out of the question for someone still waiting on a decision?

Dear Duke -

Why, oh why can't you release some early decision results already?!?

:oops:

I've officially given up on Duke. UR since 11/9.

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 could be totally off-base but maybe they're holding you BECAUSE you're so good. Perhaps they're afraid you ED'ed somewhere better (to me, there is no where better, but obviously USNWR has different views) haha :mrgreen:

Anybody else get contacted to come in for an on-campus interview? I applied ED to JD/LLM. Contacted by admissions to come in for an interview on the 18th of December, but my status is still UR.

I don't know whether to be worried or have some hope of acceptance. Ideas?

I have similar numbers and I've been "Ready for Review" since 11/6. Annoying, to say the least.

I might consider calling... I submitted 2 weeks later and am Under Review right now.

Quite a few people have submitted after us and gone UR. I have a feeling they tossed aside us low-GPA splitters for now, and they're going through all the PT/auto-admits (like yourself)/EDers for the moment.

Thanks for the heads up, though. I may actually call if this goes on much longer, especially since they seem to be a friendly bunch. Good luck with your decision--as if you need it! :wink:

Thanks for your confidence AA... I'm trying to gather as much positive momentum as possible! I'm sure they'll come around soon; Duke has always been a GPA-friendly school but I find it hard to believe they'd turn down that LSAT.

I second the sentiment. I am ED and dying to hear SOMETHING...if they are going to reject me, please please just do it now...

Genisis; 1, 1-3:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth./ And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters./ And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

I like this translation much better.

I think that is what the status checker says sometimes the day you get your accept email.

Not that I know first hand since I am still UR 10/12

"Decision made; you will be notified soon"

It is on the status checker. I have no idea what it means, haven't been following this thread super closely.

Hopefully this is good news. I just got rocked by a final so I need it.

For me it was 2 and a half weeks, but that was at the beginning of the cycle.

I submitted about 2.5 weeks ago and it took 8 days to go from "ready for review" to "under review"
