Priority track isn't new for this year. So, that's probably not the reason.

Planning a trip to visit on feb 21-23 (two weekends from now). Super excited to check out campus for the first time and learn more about the school. Will also be there for the Duke-Syracuse basketball game!

Anyone have any visit advice (places to see, etc.) or actually going to be there that weekend themselves?

This makes me think that everyone got the update regardless of the letter being sent out.


I got the 2/7 update, but I also have the first update on 1/15. Not sure that clears things up any. I wouldn't be surprised if those of us sitting at 3-4 weeks or more will receive a decision soon.

I think it is being updated for everyone because the update is only about a week after I sent my form in. But if anyone gets a decision soon, please let us know!

I submitted my scholarship form on 2/4, and got the 2/7 update as well.

+1 for everyone receiving it.

Duke Open House email toll alert. You may think it's your scholarship, but it isn't.

I submitted mine 1/28 and received an email confirming it was received on 1/30. Nothing has happened since then though.

edit: I completed Fafsa/Need Access on 1/26. The dates I originally listed were for submitting the scholarship application to Duke

I submitted them last weekend. In general, even if the users on this particularly proactive site have submitted already, you should still be well ahead of the curve/priority deadline.

I've submitted FAFSA (will have to adjust when parent's file their taxes though), and I'm currently trudging my way through Need Access :P

So from last year's applicants thread Scholarship Letters began being snail mailed this week. I'm sure you've all seen it but a few things:
-status checker updates when the letter is sent, but does not show amount
-decisions are apparently sent in batches that correspond to when your scholarship for was received (earlier submission = earlier decision)
-Judging by last years thread we are a week or two behind in the cycle, so I'm not sure that we should expect scholly info this week, although that would be fantastic.

btw I also got the 2/7 update. I submitted my form 01/05 and have a 01/07 update for when it was received, so the 2/7 has got to be universal.

Probably a dumb question to ask but is there a difference between:

financial_aid@law.duke.edu
and
financialaid@law.duke.edu

The website gives one whereas the scholarship form gives another. Furthermore, is there any sort of confirmation e-mail that's sent out when they have all materials (other than a status update)? I e-mailed in a scanned copy of the Duke 2014 Scholarship Application and submitted my Need Access form last week but haven't heard anything.

I submitted my scholarship form to financialaid@law.duke.edu (no underscore), and received a confirmation of receipt from the same address the next day.

Has anyone received a response after choosing the "housing option" for ASW?

Yea, they sent me a confirmation email two days after I let them know I wanted to do it.

is it bad that my first thought after seeing the WL/Ding bloodbath in the applicant thread yesterday was "maybe now they'll have time to send out some scholarships?"

Well, the thought honestly didn't cross my mind, but I wouldn't be opposed :)
