No, and I'm starting to get a little anxious.



Update: I called the bursar's office and they said I would receive my refund by the end of the week.

All of you are too busy flying to call backs to mentor us.

Mine went through on Friday. Seems like they had a vague week-ish period in which they expected to get it all distributed.

Any of you guys have access to 1L outlines and would be willing to help a gal out? I go to HLS and we have a visiting professor from Duke, Barak Richman, who's teaching contracts this semester. I'm willing to swap outlines with anyone who can help me out!

Does anyone have any secret insider info on roughly what GPA correlates to what percentage of the class? Like roughly what top 25% or 15% is?

don't worry if you are figuring out whether you are top 15% or top 25%.
be considerate to your fellow classmates who are below 3.1

Well this isn't telling of anything but if you're curious about the grade distribution at a similar T14 (UVA) which has a slightly higher median (3.4) you can look at the link below:

http://abovethelaw.com/2014/06/oops-top ... licants/2/

Apparently someone working in career services at UVA accidentally sent out a list of all the students, their GPAs and their rankings to everyone on the clerkship listserv. Now you can be privy to the info too, with the names of the students redacted on ATL of course.

It obviously tells us nothing about the way Duke chooses to distribute grades, but it's interesting nevertheless.

To any current Duke law students who need a summer subletter - my husband and I are currently living in Durham (moving late summer to Michigan for law school) and our house sold really, really FAST (a few hours). We need a place to rent for a couple of months so we can stay in the area until late July/August. 1bd or 2 bd is OK, but we'd prefer no roommates. We also have two small/medium doggies, so the apartment needs to be dog friendly.

If you have something available just shoot me a PM. Thanks!
