I don't know if this plays a part but its possible that because I am the only one applying from my country that gives me an advantage? I honestly don't know, just speculating.

Good luck to both and hope you get admitted!

It gives you an advantage, but not in all schools. Some schools are not considering every country there is, because there is no enough seats avaliable. However, most law schools do compare candidates from the same country in order to offer admission to the best one. Good luck :)

I see you got into Upenn which is better ranked then Duke. You prefer Duke over Upenn?

I am not sure yet whether I prefer Duke over Upenn. I know for sure that I prefer to get admitted to as many as possible, so I can choose the most suitable school for me.

Hey!
Please help me with interpretation of this line in my admission offer -
"If you need more time to make your decision, be sure to let us know as soon as possible"
However, it also says that deadline for sending confirmation is Feb 19.

Query: Can I ask admissions office to extend the deadline?

thanks in advance :)

yes, you can. this topic has been discussed in this thread and other people have requested (and been granted) such extension.

Hi!
Just received my offer of admission late last night. I applied for the traditional LL.M on 20 Jan/had it complete on 20 Jan. Am uber-happy. Still waiting for some replies from other schools before I make this important decision though. Good luck to all y'all!

I don't really understand Duke.
I have my application under review since December 17, and I haven't yet received any decision from them.
I think I might send them an e-mail, just to make sure they didn't lose my application file.

I am exactly in the same position right now. I don't think that they can lose application files as they have already sent an application received e-mail. Maybe we will be waitlisted, or rejected.. I don't really know but I am also worried like you.

I would suggest you to send an email to Mrs. Jennifer Maher. She is the Assistant Dean for International Studies, and the main responsible for reviewing the application materials to the LLM Program. I am sure she will reply.

Good luck!

The same is happening to me. My application is under review since 12/17 and I have no update so far...

I just hope that it is not a bad sign for us.
