Hey everyone! I just checked my status checker and saw a scholarship decision was mailed today. They received my forms on 2/15, so it looks like a roughly two week turnaround. Here's hoping for some money! I feel like I'll be getting something, unless they send a letter just to say "sorry, buddy, no cash for you."

lol, they got my forms 01/07 and the updated version of Need Access a month later; so much for "sending out in the order received." (my status checker is stagnant)

But maybe your status checker will update before the end of the day and then they're still true to their word...?

Personally, I'm 2/18 and no change yet.

2/12 with no movement yet, but I'm just happy that mailings are starting, even if not for myself yet.

Would you mind sharing when you submitted your scholarship form?

Personally, even though I KNOW that they're snail-mailing the scholarships, every time I get the Duke Law Weekly or some other random email from Duke, my heart jumps and that "money money money money....MONEY!" song starts playing in my head. And then reality sets in. :oops:

It switches from "money money money money....MONEY!" to "Aha-ahaaaa...all the things I could do, if I had a little money...it's a rich man's world!"

Edit: See, Duke, this is what you get if I matriculate: ABBA references. Be excited.

My status checker says that my scholarship form was received on 12/09. I forgot that I sent it in so early. Good luck everyone!

Thanks y'all!

Although, interesting observations: the poster above who sent in the form on 2/15 said that Duke already mailed his scholarship offer...and then the two of you who sent your forms in December have had them mailed as well. I thought Dean Hoye's email said they'd be processed in the order in which the forms were received? Or maybe that's just a general rule to which exceptions apply?

Maybe it depends on whether you asked to be considered for merit-based aid solely or both merit and need? I'm not too sure. I hope you all get some good news soon.

FWIW, I asked to be considered for both merit and need-based assistance.

Form received 2/7 and no mailings yet. I also opted to apply for merit based aid only. I was hoping that would speed up the process but I guess not.

Any clue how quickly they'll get through getting offers out? I wasn't accepted until two weeks ago.

Hey everyone, I think I'm missing something obvious, but hopefully someone can help me out.

I got admitted on Sunday and want to fill out the scholarship forms, but the link to the Duke Law Scholarship Application Form is broken in the email they sent me. I tried to access it via the ASW (via the link from the email), but I'm unable to figure out how to log onto the ASW. I haven't been sent a new ID or password, and the ID/password combo from my status checker doesn't work.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

The username and password are in the acceptance email.

Same boat homie. I was admitted 10/10. Submitted my scholly form, merit only, on 1/13 and haven't heard anything.

I am. It still definitely depends on money, but all else being equal, Duke is extremely likely (first choice, even?) right now. On that note, I was finally able to get off work for the ASW, so I'm excited to see the campus/city in person.
