It's worth it to point out that UVa hasn't bumped scholarships for anyone who has 170. It's still $75k for most 170, but they bumped most 171 to 35k/year and 172+ to full. It really sounds like UVa is trying to raise median to 171. So if you have a 171 or more, it may leads to more $ at Duke after people withdraw from Duke. 170 probably not so much since they are really competing at this point.

Unless you're me and have a 172+ and still have about $62K. And are a resident.

Anywaayyy I didn't come here to whine, lol- I wanted to see if anyone posted who to email about competing scholarships- I'm guessing it's unlikely for me but gonna try anyway. I don't see it posted recently- any ideas?

I want to start this, but have yet to get anything from UVA. I have a scholarship from UChi but it is less than Duke's, so not sure if that would really help me leverage anything? Duke is def. a competitor for me for personal reasons, so the more I get the easier my decision would be. Did you get something initially and were trying to get it bumped or do you have yet to hear back?

I have the opposite at 4.1/167 and still holding at 3/2. Glad to be paired with you guys but fearing the WL.

I mailed mine a week ago. How do I know if it has been received? Status checker? Hasn't changed.

I e-mailed mine and received a confirmation e-mail back. Also, it appears on your status checker as "Scholarship form received"

I just got a call from a 919 number. Specifically 919-613-5368. ...no message. What is this?!

Edit to add: 919 is Durham, NC and 613 starts all the Duke Law numbers.

:( :( It was from a Duke Academy thing I did when I was a sophomore in high school. Apparently they are having a reunion. SO LAME.

In your tea leaves I see... the Grim! D=

No, seriously, mine just updated to today's date too; my first UR was 12/20-something. I should have been rejected a longggggg time ago unless there is Extra-Uber-URM magic afoot. :roll:
