if you don't mind, how long were you under review / when did you go complete?

Complete on 10/20 (I think?); under review on 10/21, so exactly 10 days to decision day.

Edit: Sent 10/19, and this is for PT.

I have exactly the same dates for everything; maybe I'll get good news today too. Are you going for just the JD or a joint degree?

Just the JD - got the acceptance e-mail! Exciting to get in somewhere; I feel like I can stop holding my breath. Also, there's mold growing in my home office, and nobody can come remove it until Monday, so I actually have been holding my breath while checking for an e-mail. :D

Congrats! :D But also :( about the mold. Too much to move temporarily to a mold-free room?

Congrats, Bottomshelf!



Just curious, has anyone with multiple scores gotten a response via PT? If so, would you mind sharing your scores and the decision? (You can PM me if you like).


Thanks.

And I'm in for the JD/LLM program. :D Duke isn't my first choice, but it's nice to have an acceptance under my belt so soon.

Does anyone know how much diff Duke looks at a JD/MA applicant vs one who applies just for the JD?

I know Duke encourages it but do you need 'better' numbers ? Any advice is helpful...

Btw, interested in the MA in sociology

Did you guys/girls who got accepted off of the priority track write a "Why Duke" essay?
