I was at that combo dinner, haha. They had Chick-Fil-A so I'm not complaining. ASW was great.


NOOOO had I know that having a significant other would get me Chick-Fil-A then I would have gladly sacrificed my happiness for a sandwich and waffle fries.

You could have simply affirmed your faith in the prophecy of Joseph Smith or adopted a child, instead?

I didn't think a win tonight would intensify my desire to be pulled off the waitlist... but I was wrong. All I want to do is watch benches burn and go back to Durham for law school this Fall.

Forever Duke,
Hopeful Priority Reserve

WL'd Friday for a joint degree program that starts in May. I'd kind of started making plans for an August start elsewhere anyway, but still disappointing. Good luck to anyone still waiting.

I've been "file ready for review" since February. Is this normal?

How long after going UR did most people receive decisions? I've been UR for a couple of weeks now...

Seems so, I was "file ready for review" from 2/12 until yesterday when it changed to "Under review".

any tips for getting off the WL? I'll be sending an updated transcript, LOCI (including information about graduation honors) and am going to try to go down to Durham to meet with someone from admissions... just didn't know if anyone had any other tips for getting off the WL. Duke is my TOP choice :)

Anyone know how likely it is to get off the "priority reserve" list from previous years?

Just to pray to the deity of your choice (I recommend Coach K).

Got the WL email today. Will be doing the same thing as you in hopes of maybe getting pulled off the WL sometime before August. Do you think meeting with someone from admissions will really help? I guess visiting would be wise regardless since I've never been.

When I first started browsing this board I thought that 'a ding' was an acceptance, like a bell going 'ding' is a good thing. How naive I was....

Sorry for your misfortune.

You have to mail in the form included in your acceptance packet. Not sure what you do if you are on a waitlist.

so if I just don't deposit by the deadline does this have the same effect? I think I'm going to try and withdraw by email and see what they say.
