I've been at "file ready for review" since 11/16. I would love to just even be "under review." I've been thinking about calling just to make sure I'm actually complete and there's not any kind of document mix-up.

Does anyone have the link to the Duke status checker? I can't seem to find it in my e-mail and I'm scared I never recieved it. I submitted my app December 2.

Please forgive me if folks have answered this before -- does the checker change from UR to DR or just stay at UR?

In after being under review for 2+ months. Thought I was going to be WLed, there's hope for all those who have been under review for a while though.

Damn, I'd kill for that Duke email. Very surprised they send these out on days I assumed no one would be in the office.

Duke just recieved my app now. I applied priority track - when does the 10 day turn around begin? After the status checker switches to under review?

Also, with a 3.5x and a 178, should I be worried about being YP'd? How does the dreaded yield protect affect scholarship elligability?

Once they've accepted you, you've done all the damage you can to their yield. They probably save named scholarships (like the Mordecai) for people who will actually be swayed by them, but there is no reason for them to not offer you $$ because they don't think you'll take it.

maybe i wasn't clear. In the event I am YP'd, but am able to demonstrate a strong desire to attend, will having been on the waitlist affect my eligability for scholarships?

AFAIK duke doesn't really YP, so you shouldn't have to worry about it.

Look at the graph: http://duke.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats

Haven't been able to log into the status checker for the past 24hrs or so. Same with Penn. Anyone else having this problem?

Yep, I'm having the same problem with Duke, haven't bothered checking the others.

Admissions come back to the office tomorrow, I hope...

Talk about fast turnaround!

I sent my app in on Saturday, and as of today I am under review, Priority track.

Countdown from 10 begins, it would seem.

If you don't mind me asking, when did you go complete?
