I was searching stuff online and found their health/shots form and decided to go ahead and take it to my doctor to fill out since I'm leaving for North Carolina soon. It turns out I'm due for some of the recommended ones and since I brought the form in this early I'll be able to get those before leaving without any problem. Just thought I'd mention this in case anyone else might be the same situation and want to get this done before we hear about it from the law school.
i don't mean to stress, but wasn't the shots form due by June 30th? that was what my copy said and i had to bust it to get it in by then. would have been nice to have been able to wait a few more weeks. if you haven't gotten this in yet i'd do it as soon as you can.
Hm. Interesting. I don't see a due date on here. Where did you see a June 30th date? Also I don't think I got anything from Duke saying to do this, I was under the impression I had just discovered it. Maybe I missed something? When did you get yours and did any was there anything else with it? I'm getting some shots done Thursday and I guess I'll go ahead and fax it in at that time. If I am late I guess that might cause some issues, but I'm guessing they'll find a way to still let me attend class.
You're right, I went and dug up my copy and it does not have a due date on it. However, the online instructions/FAQ (http://healthydevil.studentaffairs.duke.edu/forms_policies/policies/HHF%20Immunization%20reqs%203_08.pdf
) says "We must receive these forms no later than: For Fall Admission: June 30 For Spring Admission: December 15 For Summer Admission: April 15 We cannot guarantee that records received after the deadline will be processed by the first day of classes. We reserve the right to deactivate your DukeCard if the minimum immunization requirements are not met."
However, it also says on the website that due to server overload from everyone submitting, they have "relaxed the deadline". You're almost certainly fine but I'd still get it in ASAP.
Anyway, I received the form from them in a mailing with something else - I think it may have been with that DVD about Durham they sent out, or with the early financial aid info. Whatever the case, you're probably right - they'll certainly take your money and let you attend.
