If I didn't submit a Why Duke essay with my application, but I am currently in review, can I submit one now? Will that delay my decision?

Touché. I figured someone might have done the same thing already, so it was worth a shot.

Same deal-ish. Snuck in at the deadline day of Jan. 7th.

Off the Duke instructions/checklist on LSAC: "DECISION
RELEASE EMAIL: March 8"

Bulls**t!? :shock:

Actually, I'm one of the dumb ones who called LSAC and got told to fill out the JD/MBA form because I couldn't delete and start over when I suspected it was the wrong form. Is there a different "last round decision release email" date for JD only applicants? LSAC won't let me see instructions for the other form.

I sent them an e-mail about this around 3 p.m. central time. Got my rejection e-mail 5 hours later. :lol:

Thank you everybody for the sympathy. I am curious whether asking that question expedited my decision or not. Perhaps they pulled up my file and thought, "Nope. A 'Why Duke' isn't going to save this guy. Let's ding him now and not let him go through the motions."

I appreciate it if that was the case. Saved me a few hours of work anyway.

IN!!!!!!!

Was put on PR two weeks ago. Sent in a LOCI/Why Duke last night. Got in within a few hours of sending it. Crazy excited, hopefully it wasn't a mistake. :lol: They got back to me real quick.

Highest acceptance so far; absolutely love Duke.

Congrats, LS18! Meow, don't lose hope yet- that might be the exception rather than the rule. It's still early.

48k. Exactly what I expected. I'd like a little more but I'm pleased.

Good luck negotiating with them for more. Will you be going to the ASD or do you bigger/better plans?

Haha yeah I doubt I'll be able to get anything out of them unless MVP show me some money (but they'd have to accept me first). Maybe my UT offer could get me like 5k more...

I will be at ASD unless I get into Chicago or Berkeley before my flight. In which case I'll probably still go anyways just for the trip. :mrgreen:

The reason it wouldn't let you delete it is because you must have already assigned LORs or attached other documents. I had the same problem and almost threw my laptop through a window before I figured the documents thing out. LSAC was totally unhelpful about it. WHile I was working this out, I called the admissions office to explain and they said if I was unable to change it to just submit it and send a letter (with LSAC number on it) that explained the situation.

$60k in the mail sometime last week (status checker said it was mailed 2/9... oh, how i <3 being abroad). expected with my #s, so not disappointed, but it's not a game-changer.

any thoughts on sending a LOCI even if you sent a why duke w/ the initial app?
