i just got the regular waitlist letter.  did anyone ask duke if anyone on the regular list ever gets in?  it seems like having a priority waitlist means that everyone on the regular waitlist was basically waitlisted as a courtesy.  would they ever take someone off the regular list before the priority list was completely emptied?

I just receive a letter today from Duke saying that I am now on the priority waitlist.  I guess this is a good and a bad thing.  It's good because I was moved from the regular waitlist, but now I guess I'm at the bottom of the priority waitlist.  :-\  I've submitted about...4/5 letters of recommendation (I know that's a lot, but I had to pull out the "big guns;" I also couldn't use some of these in the fall when I applied).  So, there's still HOPE.  I also sent in a letter on continued interest today through the mail.  Good luck all!

This gives me a little more hope. Were you able to speak to any of the admissions deans over the phone about the WL procedure? I'm considering giving them a call...

I called the office about a week ago.  They really weren't trying to give me any information about the waitlist procedures though.  They weren't helpful at all.  But you can try calling...it wouldn't hurt.
