Thanks!

This might be dumb, but I've been looking and can't seem to find the information regarding the 2nd deposit. It's due on June 1, right? In what amount? Does another form need to accompany it, like the 1st one?

I thought we only had one deposit, though if I'm wrong, someone feel free to correct me.

I haven't heard anything about this. I actually just got a package from them outlining the things we need to do between now and classes (send in transcript, immunization records, etc.) and it made no mention of a second deposit.

I would definitely prefer that, but I asked because I Googled "duke law deposit" and this link came up:

Policy 1-7. Candidate Responses
To secure a place in the class, admitted applicants must submit two non-refundable deposits. The first deposit deadline for most admitted applicants is April 15, with the second deposit due June 1. Candidates who are accepted somewhat later than the majority of the admitted applicants are given a later deposit deadline to allow them a reasonable period of time to decide whether to make a commitment to attend Duke.


Clearly this information is already outdated with the whole April 15 thing, but I still wanted to ask here just to double check.

No problem. In other news, just submitted my application to Garrett West. All considered, it seemed to be the best choice at the price they cited to me. Anyone else still planning or already set on Garrett?

Popping back in here for a quick question - who else is still waiting to receive their ASW reimbursement?

Me! Yet another boat we have in common. I'm glad, actually, someone else is still waiting since I figured my reimbursement form got there a little too late. Hurry up Duke!!

Same here. I submitted it around the same time as I sent my deposit (4/18, I think).

Housing question... I'm looking at Pinnacle Ridge, but a little wary of the 12-month lease (and the shorter options are cost-prohibitive). How hard would it be to sublet a 1BR there over the summer?

Can't answer your specific question, but even assuming you can't sublet, the difference is around $300 total. So it's definitely worth it to do the 12 and try to sublet. And from what I've seen, you can't really find any better 9 month options elsewhere...

From what I was seeing, Pinnacle Ridge's cheapest 1BR is $715/mo in a 12-month lease but $975/mo in a 9-month. I was also thinking about Alden Place which was like $765/mo in either a 12-month or 9-month lease when I last checked. So that's why I was asking about Pinnacle Ridge, which seems to be TCR for where to live if subletting is reasonably easy over the summer. Anybody know?

This is probably a stupid question, but how are y'all tracking down your medical records for the immunization records? Do you just literally walk into your old pediatrician's office form in hand and have them fill it out? I've never been to a regular doctor as an adult so I don't know where to go :/

Your state might keep records. It would have been a headache for me, otherwise, and that's even with my parents having some records. I was able to access my state records online.

Edit: The CDC has a list of state vaccination websites.

not a stupid question, I am in the same boat. I am hitting up the pediatrician on Monday to see what he can do. I'll let you know how it goes

EDIT: meant to also report I received a ASW refund check today.

I got mine from my high school. They typically keep them on record.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll make some calls Monday. If my high school has the records, that would be super easy. :)

Hey all, just wanted to say don't feel too much stress over the shot records...I didn't turn mine in until late September last year, and if you have any gaps, they just have you head down to the student health center to get the shots.

I mean, you gotta deal with it obviously, but don't feel too panicky if you can't get a copy right away. As long as you get them within a few months, you'll be alright. (Unless they changed the policy between last year and now. If you have a letter from them saying "GET YOUR RECORDS IN OR NO DUKE FOR YOU" then ignore this.)

Same here as well.... I'm kinda wondering if they are just never going to send it.

Punishing people for depositing elsewhere, maybe? :lol:
