Thought we could all use our own thread with the deposit deadline around the corner :?

This is the one of my many WLs where I am most hopeful of getting in with some decent money, since that seems to be a thing they do and I now have a much higher LSAT.

deposit deadline is today, and if they stick to anything close to last year, could mean gauging emails and maybe even waitlist movement next week!

Hey all, what's the difference between "priority reserve" and just the regular waitlist? I assume priority reserve people are favored, even though Duke's WL email said they reevaluate the entire pool when a spot becomes available?

all i think it means is that they may be looked at first, but if none of the people in the PR category fit the profile of the student they are trying to get for that specific seat, they move on to the regular waitlist. from TLS info, it looked like there really wasn't too big of a difference between the two.

Just received this email:
I appreciate your interest in Duke Law School! I am writing to provide an update on the status of your application and our review of the waitlist.

In order to preserve our small class size, we are cautious with our initial offers of admission, with the expectation that we will likely be able to admit people from the waitlist to reach our target enrollment. Having now heard from everyone in that initial round of offers, our class is currently at capacity. However, we know from previous years that the state of the class will be in flux throughout the summer, and expect that we will be able to make additional offers of admission later in response to these changes.

In order to confirm your interest in being considered for a seat in the class, please complete this form online no later than May 20. Even if you have contacted us recently 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.

We would also be happy to add any additional information or expression of continued interest to your file -- please send this as soon as possible by e-mail. If you are graduating from college this spring, please have your final transcripts sent to LSAC when they are available so we will receive an updated CAS report.

I appreciate your interest in Duke Law School, and your patience as we proceed through the admissions cycle. Please let me know if you have any questions.

So the email says they failed to admit anyone from the PR/Regular WL after the seat deposit? If that’s the case, we probably won’t see much admission until late in the summer...

i don't think we will have to wait until late summer. it seems like some significant waitlist movement in the T'5 is shaping up and that will have an effect on every school (someone just withdrew from Duke after getting into Harvard this morning according to reddit). i have also seen a few people on reddit saying they had double deposited at duke and another school; with the start of the LSAC reports on where people have deposited, i can imagine a few people have withdrawn from Duke. the "later" part of their email could mean anywhere from next week until orientation.

Yeah, at orientation they said they were slightly overbooked--they had to split everyone into two groups for most of the sessions.
