Well, here's to hope.  Emory and UIUC did not call me or email before I got their letters, so there's always that.  Of course, they are not on Duke's level, and may operate differently.  I'd like a warm weather option, but there's always W & M, though I don't see myself practicing in Virginia.  Let's hope, no?  Good luck to everyone!

Weird, Emory called me...

how on earth does someone know that Hoye is out of office from the 20th - 26th?? thats hilarious. it gives me a little bit of hope. I get the feeling on I will be on many waitlists this cycle...

LOL. I am stalking him. Just kidding, I needed to send an email for something and I got an out-of-office reply.  ;)

Yeah, but I'd think someone else would send the email in his absence.

I've already committed to another school, but for some reason I'm still nervous and anxious about this Duke app. Maybe it's law school withdrawl or something.

Yeah? Where ya headed?

I'm starting to freak out a little bit.  A waitlist is better than nothing, but it means I'll lose my deposit at UIUC if I actually do get accepted off of it. 

If I don't get a waitlist email, does that mean a rejection?  Or do those come by email too?

a) You've already placed your seat deposit at UIUC?
b) I think no email = rejection ... but I don't know for sure.

How was it?

Actually, in all honesty, I was a bit disappointed.  The student tour guides (at least mine) had no idea what they were talking about or should be talking about, and weren't really into it.  The facilities I found a bit disappointing.  The admissions staff was very nice and the professor that I had lunch with was as well, but all in all, even with the scholarship, it didn't do much for me.

I just checked my status checker to have it yet again tell me a decision has not yet been made.

You liar, Duke.  You've made your decision

Well, I think so....I've been complete since the end of november.  What else can they still be pondering at this point?
