That is seriously weird.

I was a bit off on the 31% on NYC -- it is 25% in the northeast for the class of 2011. Sorry about that..

Don't trust Duke to tell you about Duke.

Still good numbers though.

If there are 207 grads and 197 are employed how is that 100%?

lawschooltransparency.com is a better source for stuff like this.

agreed but that is only 10 students that are in a weird state of which a few are "not seeking". Still impressive. I could swear I read 100% someplace official. Can't find it now of course.

Thanks. I was hoping for renewable but I knew better. Hoping to put at least a small dent in tuition being on ED.

I'm pretty much looking at it as having one academic year where I don't have to worry about funding living expenses purely off of loans. That, and funding the relocation to Durham.

No, I emailed them about the ED grant and it is not lump sum. They give you 5k a year.


Thanks bud. Still hoping they can give me just a bit more to ease my mind. I am urm but still an ED. 5 to 10k more is what I'm hoping for

Let us know how it goes. You might be the only one on to take them up on this interview, so there probably won't be (m)any other reports.

Will do. Hope I can work it out. Duke's the only law school I applied to. Seems perfect on paper, so I'd like to check it out in person. If I don't get in I'll be back haha.

Congrats!

How long has it been taking for non-ED, non-PT applicants? I commend and envy the patience of everyone who submitted back in October and is not insane yet. I only sent in my app a week ago, so I know I haven't the slightest reason to hope, yet can't stop myself from refreshing the status checker daily.

I'm going to be visiting in two weeks, and I have two days to hang out in Durham (the Duke visit is the third day). Any suggestions for things I should try?

Thanks :) And, well, it took from the second week if October until now. And don't be fooled; I have gone insane. I've spent much of my time from then until tonight cursing that I didn't get PT and being convinced that there was something especially wrong with me that was causing them to ignore me. I'm so relieved and happy to be in. :lol:

No, but I sent in a why duke in an LOCI last night with my email asking about the interview, so I'm hoping that will help them come to a decision quickly :)

i don't understand why schools wait so long for most WLs/dings when it's obvious that many ticketed for that route aren't getting in unless half of the admitted people get sucked into a dimensional vortex or something. I'm pretty sure I've been in the WL pile since October :lol:

Still UR 9/28.
