So that's why they still didn't answer me.
I think Priority Track for Duke will ultimately prove to be a bad idea because1) Priority track will make Duke rather than G-Town the safety for T-14 applicants and most accepted PT will not matriculate.2) Everyone else is forced to wait longer. Waiting makes people not like schools.My prediction is that Duke will need to draw heavily from its waitlist this year and its medians for matriculated students might fall, especially since Duke is supposedly averaging LSAT scores while other peer institutions such as Michigan, Northwestern and Cornell are taking the higher score.
Duke was horribly slow last year. I mean horribly. I think the priority track thing was an effort to win some goodwill. But it may indeed backfire.

It will be interesting to see how they handle this cycle's target and borderline candidates. It seems to me that if you win brownie points from your auto-admits but lose the enthusiasm of your targets, who are after all your bread and butter, you have done yourself a real disservice. Again, I'm actually surprised at how few applications Duke actually gets. BC gets over 6k a year and it's far from a T-14.
