how long should i expect to wait for a final decision?


I've been under review for over 2 months. Submitted late October and UR since 11/2. Don't hold your breathe for a quick decision.

UR 11/30 here. Not being Priority Track makes me feel like I'm watching all the first class and elite medallion members board the plane before me.

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

Countdown from 10 begins, it would seem.


Its 10 days from when you went complete. For me, I went under review almost immediately after going complete so it didn't make a difference. And I got a decision exactly 10 days later, almost down to the hour. My decision was also over the holidays so I dont know if its totally representative, but I wouldnt expect anything for the full 10 days.

Been flying standby since 10/12. Maybe I should switch airlines.

Just got a PT invite today. Really happy about it, as I like Duke a lot.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the packet in the mail? I was admitted over a week ago and have yet to recieve it... I suppose the holidays just could have delayed it. I guess I'm just really impatient!

Mine took a few days. I'd probably chalk yours up to holiday delays. Give it a few more days before you call them. Congrats though!

just went to "decision made." at this point, that would have to be an acceptance right? or is duke rejecting kids already?

I know people have been waitlisted, put on Priority Reserve, or deferred until fall grades as well as accepted. So it's not a guarantee, but with your LSAT I would guess you're in.

I have been under review since 10/6 and I am taking this to be a bad sign. I don't have super low numbers but too low for them to get excited about -

If I'm UR anywhere past the 12 week mark I'm calling. In about 3-4 weeks Duke, Penn, Vandy, and NYU will be pushing it. You too UCLA!

not at all. 3.78/176(164).

not priority track.

complete since 12/1.

no interest in northern law schools so it's going to be between uva, duke, and maybe georgetown making a late run. $ matters, you know how it is.

Question for those of you that sent in the Scholarship Application Form: Did anyone receive confirmation after sending it in? I scanned and emailed it in and didn't receive an auto-response or otherwise. Just wondering if I need to resend it. Thanks.

I scanned it and e-mailed it to them, and I believe I received a confirmation. On a related note...has any money been offered by Duke yet? My scholarship app has been in since October, haven't heard anything since.

I did the same thing yesterday afternoon and have not received any sort of communication from them either.

I got an email saying they recieved it, but about 3 days after i actually faxed the form. So wait a week and if you dont hear from them, call.
