i think if you dont get the mordecai youre very likely to get somewhere around the 60,000. i dont think they give anything higher than that other than the mordecai, at least from what i've seen on LSN
Allegedly this won't change the admissions philosophy... do you guys think this is a realistic statement?
The admission standards for Duke and USC are pretty similar. However, I think Duke may get a slightly stronger applicant pool. My guess is that Duke's 25th % GPA will go up, and their 75th % LSAT may come down just a touch.
Did Duke have an early option? I only applied there once I got my application fee waiver and my file was only completed 2 days ago so I'm doubting I'll hear for a while. Good luck to those who didn't hold out for the 70 bucks.
Quote from Duke Law's Website:
Early Action - To be eligible for early action, you must meet both the following criteria:
1. You must have taken the LSAT no later than June 2005; AND
2. Your application and all supporting material must be RECEIVED in the Office of Admissions no later than November 1, 2005.
Under no circumstances will your file be considered for early action if you take or retake the LSAT after June 2005. Allow sufficient time for processing when submitting material through LSAC. Material RELEASED by LSAC after November 1, will not be eligible for early action.
Early action applicants are judged on a higher than normal standard since we must make decisions before the size and quality of the rest of the pool of applications is known. Early action applicants who are admitted will be notified before December 31, 2005. All other candidates will be reconsidered in comparison to the rest of the pool and will be notified no later than May 1, 2006. There is not a place on the application to check that you are applying for early action. Applicants who meet the criteria will automatically be considered.
Duke's my first choice, but a reach to be sure. I've got a 166/3.9ish at UMich. I definetly definetly put a lot of work into their essays.
But I didn't send in until a few weeks ago, so even if the miracle happens and I get in I won't be in the first batch most likely.
