I won't be in until 10-11 PM (not sure what time zone my itinerary lists since I'm CST, come to think of it, but I'll assume EST for now) on Thursday night, so no Thursday events for me.

For flights arrival time is always in the local time zone.

I haven't flown in about a decade, and I wasn't doing the booking back then.

I wish I knew when mine changed so I could let you know for comparison, I hadn't been checking it so I'm not sure how long the status dates were gone.

Mine was gone for 3 or 4 days before the mailing date appeared...but that was over the weekend so I'm not sure how helpful that is.

Same. Mine disappeared around the start of the week, but the mailing went out the next Monday.

Errrm. What does this Scholarship info come in? I got a package from Duke today that was like 7 different brochures in an expandable folder. Am I looking for a separate letter for scholarship info? Or should I have had a letter inside of this thing if I were going to get scholarship money?

Gotcha. Thanks! Just didn't expect to get two large packages from Duke with neither including the scholarship info.

I can relate, I found out my letter had been sent, then got the brochure package. It was a little bit of a buzzkill, even if I did find the information good. :lol:

+1 Durham COL definitely makes Duke the best financial option if you're moving and before considering merit/need-based aid

Something being cheap in a relative sense doesn't make it cheap in an absolute sense.

Ferraris. lol
Signing off on 200k in debt is overwhelming when one has an option for 40k for a state school degree. I understand the benefits lf a duke degree are fantastic. Im just nervous about repayment, but perhaps im one of the few :/

No you're not alone. Personally, that's why Duke is so appealing to me (if they will match Northwestern's scholarship offer). For my goals a T14 is basically required, so the fact that I can go to Duke for much less than the others is pretty awesome. I think you just need to decide what your goals are, and then we can tell you whether it makes sense to take on the debt to go to a school like Duke.
