Also, Duke ASW was pretty lit this weekend
let's do a brief overview of chargers:
Gets into Duke with money
Gets into Chicago
Get LoR quickly and without headache
- [+] Spoiler
Jokes aside are you committing to Duke or still up in the air?
I am actually still waiting on 1 of my LORs though, but he was busy with research and after 3 months I told him I had found someone else and to get to it if he had time but that it was no longer a big issue. So 3 out of 4 were relatively smooth and quick to get and the professors were excited to write them. I oversold the ease of my experience
I'll be sitting down and crafting a few negotiation emails tomorrow. If the money at Duke line's up how the financial aid person I spoke with in person alluded to, then I'll be signing dem papers. Unless Chicago's scholly comes in and it's fire and the ASW in 2 weeks is likewise fire. Everything but those 2 schools I think were basically bumped out by a combo of the Chicago acceptance and the pleasantness of Durham
What are we talking about from duke here (PM if you need to keep it under wraps)? Duke is an amazing school man I hope it works out for you.
also 3/4. lmao I'm praying for 2 strong and 1 weakish at this point. Did you get it done after you graduated?
Just don't quote and it's good. I only got 54k, which it seems like was the number for everyone with numbers around mine this cycle so I guess it wasn't a low lowball offer, but lower than what my stats would have garned in previous cycles according to LSN. If they hit 75kish I think I'll be in, depending on Chicago's offer. I think a 50k difference between the 2 and I'd be willing to swallow the difference and go to Chicago though. Chicago is like 83% Fed Clerk/BL placement which I'd say means that everyone who wants the BL spots gets them without a doubt. I like that security.
I asked the professors for them about a year ago, save for the ones that I TA'd for. The first 2 came in around September and the final one which was the replacement option sent his in before Sept LSAT scores came out anyways
