hanman - Did you get any kind of response?


no response. their admissions office replies within an hour when i email them but nothing from fin aid. no update on status checker either. i rushed like crazy to get our taxes done by mid-february, in order to complete my need access application, and i would have appreciated a timely response for those of us who submitted our forms well before the march deadline...sigh[/quote]

I'm going to e-mail them as well. My status checker updated to 3/16 actually, but it didn't indicate that any letter was sent.

Did you check the bottom left of your status checker? That's where it will say that they mailed you a letter. I just checked mine and it says scholarship letter sent. Hoping for good news come Tuesday or Wednesday.

I did but it actually just updated saying they sent the letter within the last hour or so. Figured nothing would happen after 5:00 PM but sure enough it did.

i'm feeling friendly towards fin aid again haha. the director is still in the office (he said he's working late tonight on our apps) and there will be another review meeting monday to do the apps they couldn't get to in time today. those of us who are reviewed on monday won't be adversely affected by the late review.

I haven't got mine yet and I'm in on the east coast, so it's hard to say.

I haven't gotten mine yet either, and I am also on the east coast. But I'm convinced mail in the town I go to school in just takes an exceedingly long time.

Still on Priority Reserve list since 2/10. Sent my second LOCI today along with an additional rec letter I attached yesterday.

I'm guessing both wait lists have been untouched so far? Has anyone gotten an update at all?

What is the normal period between submitting financial aid materials and receiving a response?

found answer: three weeks, sent via postal mail.

nah, they do. Although they tend to be pretty generous in their initial offers, so there might not be much to negotiate.

I had a friend last cycle who tried to negotiate. She got into Chicago ( where she goes now) and received scholarships from NYU, Mich, and Penn that were equal or greater than Duke. Duke wouldn't budge
