tc, Duke seems to care about about GPA - more than most of its peer institutions, so this was somewhat promising opposed to your other shocking dings.

Is there something about your application that you haven't shared which explains why we all feel badly for you?

Perhaps.  I plan on being more forthright upon the completion of my cycle since I do have some very usual aspects about my app.

I think we may need a thread for everyone to discuss their most unique soft factors (negative and positive) along with an analysis regarding how much they helped or hurt you.

I think that is a wonderful idea

Rejected at Yale.  My first ding.  I'm glad it was a special one ;)

Waitlisted at Duke, really I'm kind of surprised about it.  Was expecting a rejection.

tcwhat,

I saw your lsn profile. What did you get arrested for?

That actually would be quite useful I imagine.

Congratulations?

That succinctly articulates my general feeling. 

"Wow I got waitlisted, totally wasn't expecting it at Duke.  This is great."

And then,

"Well crap, it's another waitlist that I'll stick on and probably not get off of. And it makes my decision no easier still."

In a way, it makes no sense, does it? You can get rejected at, say, WUSTL or UConn, then get waitlisted at Duke or get into Berkeley...then you get a rejection from a "safe school" like Tulane or Cardozo...or even worse, Santa Clara or somewhere.

out at berkeley via status checker, quite possibly the worst means of notification.  i feel dirty and cheap.

logickills-

i can't even begin to explain HOW MUCH i agree with you.  i was rejected earlier this month (after having gone to committee review only..like..literally 3 weeks before), and the fast-turnaround + online-rejection-I'm-not-even-worth-an-email-or-letterhead?! really put me in the dumps for a few days.  i didnt get any work done.  damn.  i almost want to demand my app fee back. 

no love from the west coast....

Why did they do that? I got a letter in the mail. How do these schools decide who they're going to deny and how they're going to deny them? I interned in undergrad admissions after I graduated...I want to do the same in law school. I am so curious about it.

sigh, who knows.  i have a question, though, since u've been backstage with an UG admissions office: ARE THEY REALLY *THAT* BUSY?

 i mean...i know they're busy.  but...on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being Barack Obama on the campaign trail.
