not a big deal at all since you won't have traffic. I definitely prefer it to public transportation.


But what about socially?

I genuinely thought that was the norm for most schools. Like it didn't even strike as something that was odd. Lol but either way, Im really not bothered at all by it. It's a short drive w/ no traffic.

I've heard there are PLENTY of social events and bad reviews and such. Absolutely no one at ASW mentioned a boring social life. A lot of people said they had too much fun. It's basically a college town. No need to worry about that

Im a 2l. There is an inordinate amount of social events. You can find law students drinking every night of the week if you wanted (don't advise doing this). I rather drive 3 minutes than be on the metro for 30 every day of the week.

It's a small City so it's not like we won't ever hangout. Also I miss driving so much now that I'm in a city that functionally prohibited owning a car

Lol okay okay, just did! Now, if anyone has any information to feed the neurotic monster inside me, that would be lovely. :)


I remember reading something that said we would automatically be enrolled into the university's insurance mid September if we hadn't opted out. You can start buying parking passes July 15th. However, I'm a 0L so take everything I just said with a grain of salt.


Thank you so much! Also, I'm silly - I stopped checking the admitted students website after ASW, but it looks like there's information there! We can buy parking permits starting June 21.

I'll do a lot for you guys, but I won't Google "Duke Law tuition" (well, I will to make sure it's really that easy; I just won't post the resulting link) :P

I have set up my email and everything but I'm curious how things like parking permits and insurance works. Is that all at orientation or will we get info in the summer (or am I totally missing something?)

I'm not sure if I have any action items still


+1, also wondering about parking and insurance, etc.

Do we need to do anything to accept loans right now?


So looks like June parking will open up.

I remember hearing about getting a full aid package in the summer and there was nothing more to do on the financial front until then.

Received a small bump in aid this morning, which tipped the scales in favor of Duke. Submitted my seat deposit a few minutes ago, see you all in the Fall!

It was super variable by section. One section had classes 8a-12:30p. One had something like 8a-9a, 11a-12:30p, 3:30p-5p (essentially).

Looks like $61k tuition + $1,287 in fees = $62,287 total for 2017-2018. This seems to be about $2300 more than fees/tuition for 2016-2017. Can we expect that kind of increase (3-4%) every year?
