I too got waitlisted at Duke, after being deferred for EA. Promptly withdrew my application. Good luck to the rest of you.

I gave Duke a call the other day to see how things were going for summer start. It sounds like they are not expecting to call more than a few people, at the most, off the waitlist (for summer start).  :-[ About 40 people enter as summer start and there are like 50 people on the list. I really wanted to go to Duke, but I've just about given up hope on it. I fear my numbers are way to low to compete for a few slots.  :'(

Nice work.  What else did they say?  Have they called anyone yet?

Do they give out a certain amount of slots to each program, or is everyone just lumped in one group? If they directly replace a person for the JD/LLM with another person going into that program, the competition may not be quite as fierce.

Agreed.  "Summer starters" seems to include all joint-degree candidates.  I can't imagine that JD/LLMs will be competing with JD/MAs.

They hadn't called anyone as of last week, Thursday. (I've been obsessively checking LSN and LSD and that seems consistant.) Good question, I forgot to ask about JD/LLM vs. other program summer starters. I didn't realize all joint degree programs were summer start ??? I can't imagine there is a minimum number of seats to fill for any of them, except maybe JD/LLM. On second thought, why would they need a minimum number of JD/LLM? They still have LLM students to fill the classes.

Add my name to the list...on two other WLs, so I figure whats the harm in a third.  As we all know, three is a magic number.
