When did you go complete? I went "File complete; Ready to Review" on 2/2, and there have been no changes as of yet.

Question -- I submitted my scholarship form and got the notification they'd received it on 2/15. Today, I got a large envelope in the mail from the Office of Student Affairs with some welcome brochures and stuff about student organizations and journals, as well as a letter from the office of admissions "welcoming me to the duke law community." .... but there is nothing in there about scholarships (not even a "sorry, but none for you" line). For anybody whose received their scholarship notification already, what else was with the letter or was the letter all on its own? Thanks!

--also, my status checker hasn't changed to say that the scholarship info has been mailed; however, I'm local and for the first welcome packet mailing, I received it before my status checker showed it had sent.

Scholarship info should come in a regular envelope from the financial aid office. And the status checker will be updated when they mail it. Which for you might be just the day before.

Great, thanks. Hopefully, I'm getting closer to seeing some kind of action then!

I would want to say that it depends .. numbers def. play a role .. people with great numbers seem to have a quicker turn around time. My first UR was on 1/30 .. nothing since ..

Edit: Just updated to 3/5. Duke is definitely a reach school, and I am mentally prepared for a WL/ding.

That is crazy, though, that we keep ending up in the same stacks.

Is there any type of correlation between several review dates and decisions that anyone knows of? I'm just confused as to why I underwent a second review date, I should have been a reject.

Maybe they like to pool all rejects for administrative convenience ... I don't know .. I am making stuff up .. You never know .. Duke could like you.

:) Thank you but I don't think so. I applied before I got my score. Silly little LSAT.

Silly LSAT indeed. I don't have many hopes about my chances either. Good luck!!
