Thank you for your application to Duke University School of Law. I regret that we are unable to offer you admission to the 2010 entering class. We are sending this notification by e-mail so that you will receive your decision in a timely manner.
Every element of your application was carefully reviewed and evaluated in reaching a decision. Our decisions are difficult because the competition is quite intense for a limited number of spaces in the entering class. Duke is among the smallest of the national law schools, and we received many applications for each available seat. Unfortunately, we are simply unable to accommodate many fine candidates who are highly qualified and have been enthusiastically recommended.
I sincerely regret the disappointment that this decision may cause you. We appreciate your interest in Duke Law School, and wish you continued success in your academic and professional pursuits.
Director of Admissions
