Just got my package....and no mention of any scholarship whatsoever. Not even that I did not receive one. Anyone else get nixed in a similar manner? I am 3.5/169. Anyone with similar stats that can report zero money?

Are you sure you received the scholarship package? Did it come with a t-shirt? The Student Affairs Office sent everyone a package with a t-shirt. This is not the scholarship package.

Just received scholarship letter. Came in a normal-sized envelope--no shirt.

But mostly, 35k/yr!

(170/3.8x)

Maybe Duke doesn't want to make us feel overweight, hence the apparently enormous shirts.

Shirt and terrific scholarship considering my numbers! I'd love to come but I don't think nc is in the picture anymore. We will see.

I'm JD/LLMLE

So just to be 100% clear, can we confirm that the scholarship letter and t-shirt package are two separate things? Cuz I got the shirt but submitted my scholarship form just a couple of weeks ago...

Actually the scholarship is the shirt. You need to keep your gpa above a 3.5 to keep yourself clothed.

This change happened in the last hour and a half too, as that was when I last checked my status (I know I have a problem). I have no idea what this means but it is weird...


Just noticed this occurring, so hopefully and based on others' experiences, that means I should have "Scholarship Mailed" by day's end, too.
