Best of luck to those traveling to ASW. I'm experiencing a flight delay right now... Hoping I will make it eventually!

Leaving work in 1.75 hours. Then hitting the road. Getting excited.

I appreciate all the information Duke is sending me but it really won't matter until I get the scholarship info...

Announced at ASW - Duke applications were up 7% this year

Also I'm pretty sure that I met at least a couple TLS'ers today

Duke has had a few good years of application increases, looks like that is continuing.

FWIW I heard that this year's ASW received a much larger response than Duke admin was expecting and they have some worries about over admitting. Could negatively impact scholarship negotiations. I was bummed when I heard that too as I am in the same boat

I skipped the faculty reception, shame on me, but it has been enjoyable so far.

Pretty impressed with Duke all things considered. Definitely digging the small class size and seemingly accessible, engaged profs.

When I visited, the professors were definitely a highlight.

What are ya'lls experiences with how long it takes Duke to turnover a financial aid negotiation letter (I sent one in recently)?

They emailed me back about a week later and said they wouldn't start negotiating until early/mid April.

Had a great time at ASW. Professors/students were awesome.

But... LOL at the girl who gunned the hell out of mock class
