I'm really sorry to hear this but I've heard the chances of getting off it are reasonably good...

stats please?


3.64 / 171


Sorry to hear that. With those stats, I wouldn't be surprised if you got in later.


Yes, those look pretty solid to me too, especially if paired with some decent softs and/or a Duke-specific essay (which I admit I did not write myself).

Sorry to hear that, Torvon. But, like the others, I'd bet it's only temporary. In any case, good luck!

Perhaps that's why my application hasn't yet been sent to review. It's OK; I can handle the wait.

You have to be invited to apply Priority Track. It's not something you can do yourself.

Now I am more worry about my application. More than 5 weeks under review.

Duke, I'd just like to say happy 1 month anniversary since you put me under review! I hope it's been as good for you as it has been for me.

I got an e-mail this morning saying I've been asked to interview on campus. The e-mail was clearly not an acceptance. I'd appreciate any info anyone might have on these interviews -- I've seen a few threads where people ask questions about them, but I haven't seen any answers. (What is Duke looking for in the interview? When does it make sense to make the trip down there?)

Thanks.

Sorry to hear it. I guess we're both still in limbo. But things sound good for getting in from the priority reserve -- hope you get good news soon.

Under review the same day. ANY decision is better than waiting until March.

I like how the admissions office is torturing me, and I don't even really want to go to Duke. Just let me know already please.

I'm a splitter for Duke. Well above 75th LSAT but GPA below 25th.

Yeah, all mine did was change to today's date... I'm predicting a decision on Monday. But today or tomorrow would be awesome!

Just talked to an admissions rep at Duke. He said if your under review date changed, that means your file is going to final review. Expect decision soon. Hopefully this is true.

Great information, but I'm not sure if that increases or decreases my anxiety.

Candidly, mine too. Do you think their final review should take a long time or be quick? I think it's bittersweet. :lol:
