I worked in Admissions as an undergrad. In our office, your contract mandated 6-day weeks from October 15 through February 15th, and you couldn't take vacation. I can imagine, with only a couple of Deans making final decisions in the LS process, that they are doing even more than that.

Mine came through on a Sunday as well. They have a lot of work between now and January, I figure they are definitely putting in 50-60 hour weeks.

Big +1. Congrats from a fellow JD/LLM admit.


What are your stats if you don't mind? I'm applying for the JD/LLM also.

Do any of your emails or admissions materials say when the admitted students weekend is occurring?

Does anyone else have an "LS Tracking No" on their status checker? Maybe I am getting paranoid in my old age, but I swear this wasn't there before! :shock:

I do, I don't remember it being there. It is not on my uva status checker. but the whole process is making me nuts so I may not be the best person to ask.

Anyone else at decision made and waiting for the email? I am kind of surprised they are going so late with it today.

PT. Submitted 10/22. Status checker says 'Decision made; you will be notified soon.' Numbers pmed to you, admit on lsp. Just sitting here twiddling my thumbs.

Update: The email just took awhile. Got in and am very excited.

I have it on Duke but none of my other status checkers. What does it mean? I demand an explanation!

I have it on my Duke checker. But I don't have one on UVa, where I was already accepted, so I don't really feel good about it. I guess it's just something some schools do.

In via the PT with a 171 and 3.87 (retook with a previous score of 166). Status checker went to decision made around 5:00 pm yesterday and email from Bill Hoye at 9:00.

Gotta say the PT seems like a brilliant strategy for Duke. For the next month or so Duke will be the only acceptance I have and the "clubhouse leader" if you will.

Does getting a fee waiver here mean a good shot at admission?

Having a 169+ / 3.8+ means a good chance at admission.

Yeah, but what will that actually net them? What is the endgame for them with PT? Do we think they get a higher yield of the people on PT than they would if they just gave fee waivers to them?

Interested in people's thoughts here.
