54k plus a 2k dual degree grant came in the mail from Duke yesterday. Pretty generous!

Good luck to those still waiting!

Today I saw my professor, in full suit and tie, walk out of the law building, flip out a Razor scooter, and gleefully scoot away down the sidewalk. This is why you should come to Duke.

Emailed. On "Priority Reserve" list. Encouraging me to send new stuff. I imagine I'll get a LOCI off to them soon.

Anyone apply a little late (Complete 1/12) and still awaiting evaluation? I have had zero movement on my application since it went complete on 1/12.

Does anyone have an opinion as to whether LOCI's should be emailed or sent through the post? I know some schools only accept physical letters. Thanks!

They made it seem to me that either was acceptable, but I went the physical letter route. I just thought it showed more authentic interests than a simple email.

I went complete a few days before both of you and had my first UR on Monday. Just gotta be patient. Unless you are PT, they take awhile.

Anyone think more decisions are likely to come out today? I hope so, I've been under second review for a while now... I'm nervous.

I don't know, but it seems like a lot of people on here get a decision within a week of their second review, and almost everyone within two weeks.

Has anyone gotten scholarship money yet? If so, how long did it take after sending in your scholarship application thing to get a response?

(Sorry, I wanted to post this in an "In at Duke" thread, but I couldn't find one. Feel free to direct me if it exists.)

Took 2-3 weeks after submitting for me to get an offer.

Priority Reserve just now.

Can anyone fill me in on the general consensus about chances off the PR vs waitlist??

It took a few weeks. I sent mine the first week of Feb and my offer letter arrived Friday.
