Is there a reason they wanted to see your fall grades?

Not exactly forever, but long enough to make me anxious. I just want SOME change in the status, not even a decision, but even just an "under review" would make me happy.


+1. I've been "Ready for Review" since 12/4...I'm hoping for at least an "Under Review" soon. Devilis, I feel for you and hope you hear soon...11/8 is a pretty long wait.

I'm guessing that for near-median numbers, they're waiting until close to the deadline before reviewing applications, so they can compare the whole pool together.

Said they'd start reviewing "mid-January" and would mail out letters via USPS.

bump for some Duke love
The letter they sent me along with the admitted students packet showed that they actually took notice of my Why Duke essay. They mentioned several specific things (events/clinics/clubs, etc) that were of particular interest to me, along with noting my career plans for after law school. I was quite impressed that they spent the time and effort to do that. Way to go Duke :)

Going to submit my PT application today. A bit nervous as I don't want to start my cycle with a rejection/hold. :mrgreen:

Working on polishing my Why Duke.

YAY got an email earlier from Dean Hoye welcoming me to Duke. I had previously been on PR and I submitted an extra essay, transcript, and LSAT addendum. Dean Hoye was a true gentleman when I spoke on the phone with him after I got deferred and was always prompt in returning emails, adding additional materials, etc.

Quick question -- has anyone put on "priority reserve" been subsequently admitted, rejected, or waitlisted yet this year?

How long before priority reserve files are reviewed again? Will it show up on my status checker?
I wrote a LOCI... but I'm still waiting on an extra LOR to send in. I'm nervous that they'll reject me before LSAC receives the letter. I don't really have anything else to send in - I've already graduated, I wrote a Why Duke...
