People on this thread have heard within twenty four hours or less all the way up to the full ten days (or slightly more) through PT.

Don't know if this means anything, but my status date just changed to today's date. PT. Still says under review though.

lol. Trying to decypher the various changes on status websites makes me feel like I'm waiting for my LSAT score all over again.

The only one that means anything substantial is "decision."

"Complete" = "Pending" = "Under Review"

yes. was pleasantly surprised.


I'm non- PT too. Did you get an acceptance e-mail before your package arrived? Or did the package just show up? Also, did your status change to "decision" before the package arrived?

Thanks in advance...

i haven't gotten my package in the mail yet. my status checker shows that it was mailed out on Mon.

checked my status right after the acceptance email and saw that it had changed to "decision made", but i don't know how far in advance it had changed.

For all PT admits - this is probably old news, but I got an email from the Duke Financial Aid office this morning confirming receipt of my scholarship form.

Officially in! Status changed to "Decision made" today and an hour later I had the e-mail. Love the Priority Track. Feels good to get the first admission.

I got an email this afternoon saying my application is being held on the "priority reserve". What is this? Is it just some sort of glorified waitlist? I'm pretty disheartened, to be honest.

I'm bumping this. Does anyone know anything about priority reserve? I haven't been able to find much about it. Is it basically a waitlist?

I looked at LSN and there were very few people with my numbers who got waitlisted at Duke and I think none with my numbers who were offered priority track (I applied via PT) and didn't get accepted. So far, it seems like all PT (including those with lower numbers than my own) have been accepted. I'm really confused and a little upset. I've sent in my LOCI (and I think its pretty good) but I still can't really understand what happened. Any insight?

Anyone heard of PT invitation being extended to someone with a 168? Is UGPA also a factor?

It has to be. I am 17x (x = enough to get an invite from what I've heard on here), and located in the same region as Duke and never got a PT invitation, and I have an "Okay" GPA so I would have to assume that UGPA is a factor.

One guy on here has. Sorry, I forgot his name. He said it took them 3 weeks.

I have been under review since October 5th, and nervously awaiting an answer! I hope it's soon!

Good luck! :D

i've got a buddy who just got back his LSAT (a 172) and immediately received a PT invite. so, looks like they're doing another full round of PTs. i'm guessing this means they might have to put the non-PTs on the back burner for a little while again while they deal with what i'm imagining will be another solid batch of PT applications

Are you Priority Track? If so, quite good.

If not, still quite good. Below 25th GPA but a good amount above 75th LSAT. If you're in already (even if not PT) then I'd say your chances are very solid.
