Dear Mr. chicoalto:

Thank you for applying to Duke Law School. I am writing to provide an update on the status of your application.

We are approaching the deposit deadline for applicants who have already been admitted for our fall semester. Once these have been received, we will have a much clearer sense of the status of our class, and will evaluate whether we are able to make additional offers of admission from our waitlist.

In order to confirm your interest in being considered for a seat in the fall class, please complete this form online no later than Friday, April 23. Even if you have already contacted us regarding your continued interest, you must complete this form for full consideration.

Although we hope that you are still interested in the possibility of attending Duke, this form will also allow you to indicate that you wish to be removed from our waitlist.

I appreciate your interest in Duke Law School, and your patience through this lengthy admissions process. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Mark Hill
Director of Admissions


Interesting, just like Michigan's survey except that it comes at the end of the cycle and they only give you 2 days to complete it.

:) Right? I want to know what it is about my application that screams "WAITLIST ME!" Deep down I know it is because I have an compelling personal story and well-written statement and subpar-for-T14 numbers. I am just praying SOMEONE decides to love me.

Oh please. I haven't heard a WORD from Cornell ;) ...seriously. I recently went complete. Oy. I very recently found out from Duke (late last week) and it was a HUGE surprise. I was so focused on fighting the big fight with GULC!

Surprise because you expected to be in at Duke or surprise you weren't dinged? I don't remember your numbers. I knew the WL was coming from everyone, but I did think Cornell might give me some love. I have to figure out what to write in my LOCI to Duke. I just feel like I am tapped out of material. I've talked about myself, the school, my family, my desire to go, the type of law I want to practice... everything. What's left but to say "I'm still here. Waiting. XoXo"

Did anyone on the PR list receive the email from Mark Hill? Or was that email only sent to people on the WL?

I hope you get it. Just keep pressing on! The deposit deadline is RECEIVED BY the 30th, so you should see some movement in May.

Just got the email from Mark Hill asking whether I would like to remain on PR. Email states that if accepted before the Apr 30th seat deposit deadline, we will have until the 30th to send in our deposit. If accepted after the 30th, we will have 48 hours to decide. I wonder how much movement there is going to be from the PR list...

I think that the info about deposits was not in the email but in the link that you clicked on to either accept your positiion on PR or withdraw from the PR list. Sorry about the confusion!

Just got the rejection email. I really couldn't care about this one, as one trip to Durham was enough to dissuade me from attending. Yet, it's another application where the result doesn't comport with what would have been expected. I might have to call LSAC and have them confirm that they didn't tell me my LSAT is ten points higher than what it really is.
