Has anyone else had a similar experience? Good Guy Duke..


I wish they'd do that for everyone... I am hoping the mail gets in before they close the mail rooms for spring break :roll:

UPDATE:

I have package waiting for me in the mailroom, I see it's from Duke, I rip it open, read the letter.... I don't see numbers.... postdated the day before scholarship info was sent out. So hopefully this isn't Duke's way of saying I'm not getting any money. At least I got a nifty Duke T-Shirt.

Moral of the story, keep an eye out for a fluffy package from Duke.

Free T-shirts!?!?!? :mrgreen:

But given that they haven't asked for our sizes (right?), they're probably doing the whole "one size fits most" thing. Which sucks for those of us who aren't "most." :evil:

Cue slogans: I applied to Duke and all I got was this t-shirt! Although I hope you get swag+schollies :D

Maybe it's not supposed to fit us now. It's supposed to fit after all the food we're talking about.

And because we'll be too busy studying to exercise.

A few people yesterday mentioned that the Current Status disappeared. Did this eventually change to Scholarship mailed? Mine just disappeared today.

That was my experience, disappeared in the morning then under mailings the scholarship sent showed up by the evening.

This is the worst possible way to give out scholarships."Hey, we might be giving you a bunch of money, and we made our decision a few days ago, but you still have to wait a few days for the postal service to deliver it."

Mailed 3/11, still haven't gotten it yet. :x (Sorry, but i had to vent somewhere.)

When I got it and saw how huge it was I was joking with my girl friend (from texas) about how it was a "southern large", and then it fit me.... She had a field day with that one.

I have the same date for mine. They're probably just putting that date to indicate when it will be mailed out (next business day)

Still no FinAid update, but I, too, received my shirt today! I'll consider it reimbursement for the ~$25 of the app fee that doesn't get waived.

Thank you Duke Office of Student Affairs for sending me this gigantic t-shirt right after the admissions office mailed my scholarship decision. You got me good, Duke.

Can confirm shirt receipt as well, I was definitely surprised as I wasn't expecting anything from Duke. Now, about that financial aid... :lol:
