Now we can out you. I joined it last week, but with Texas I would feel like an ass leaving it lol. Called finaid today to see if they could throw an increase my way but they were in a meeting and never called back. I hope they can give me an answer within 2 days :?

I need to get my Duke Law avatar ready just in case that they do :D


Hope it works out :)

lolwut? Look at the overall scores and the reputation scores. Duke (and NW) are still basically peer schools of MVBP. I'd be a little nervous if I was taking GULC or Cornell at this point, though.

Edit: Also, if Duke engaged in the kind of ED splitter gaming that UVA did to increase medians it probably could have held serve in a tie at 10. I rather like Duke's reputation for liking higher GPAs and people who want to be at Duke (with the emphasis on the Why Duke essay).

Haha :D True to the fanboy-ism! I'm with ya all the way, but it still hurts to no longer be able to say 'top 10' to the laymen. I guess being able to say 'Duke' will have to suffice. Or 'national champions.'

100% employment? So long as I don't end up as Coach K's towel boy.

EDIT: Wow that 100% employment rate was the only in the top 50. Very impressive.

T10 may sound good when you call your grandma, but the equivalent job placement, rep scores, etc. will sound good when your law firm calls you back.

"More than 3,500 on-campus interviews were conducted with 221 second-year students during fall 2009. Students averaged 18-20 interviews each; many received multiple offers."

So all 18-20 of my interviews should be with Texas firms, but I guess with the lotto system that probably won't happen.

Dean Hoye got back to me today, and all I can say is that he is the great guy he appeared to be at the ASD lol. Even though he gave me little hope of getting more money, I still appreciate the kindness and enthusiasm he expressed himself with (not to mention still working at 9:30). I have 24 hours to decide about Texas, and Hoye said that the scholarship committe doesn't mean again till Monday but will try to get some people together tomorrow. I might just pay Texas $200 and postpone my decision for another 2 weeks. I'll find out tomorrow!

....my Duke Law avatar is still waiting on the bench wanting to be put in the game!

Yes but you have to come through on your contract. I deposit at Duke, you buy rounds. I think this contract will hold from the 1 contracts class I have taken at ASDs.

I think the $45k difference for Duke is well worth it, and if Duke is going to give me more money they will do it regardless of whether I have given UT $200 to show I am serious. I'll use that $200 for my TexasExes membership instead.

Congratulations. I had just about written Duke off as an option for me, but now it seems they're back in the mix. Anybody offering to buy me a round if I commit? 8)

That offer is only good for me. Take one of your full rides somewhere and be happy! You can buy a lot of rounds with no tuition to worry about.
