They said you have to submit their scholarship form before they will send the acceptance packet, so if you haven't done so yet maybe that is why?


hmm do others know? that would be absurd. they said you have to submit teh fafsa and need before scholarship form, which requires me to file my taxes. so i have to file my taxes before i get an admission letter??


No. I received my packet about 10 days after my acceptance letter. Finaid email came later.

Just withdrew my application.

Good luck guys. I hope this pulls one of you off priority reserve because a lot of you on there really deserve to get in.

Good luck, Godspeed, and may the force be with all of you.

Haven't heard anything here. I fully expect a ding but couldn't resist throwing that hail mary into the endzone given Raleigh is my hometown.

My status date has changed twice in the past week though, so they are definitely about to drop that hammer. Wouldn't be surprised if it was today.

Has anyone received scholarship info yet? Form says they'd start reviewing scholarship apps beginning in mid-Jan.

I submitted my FAFSA, Need Access, and Scholarship App. I received this email after I sent the finaid app:

Scholarship decisions will then be sent via US Mail. Your status checker will also be updated when a scholarship decision has been mailed.
If your address changes after you submit your form, please send updated address information to admissions@law.duke.edu. Thank you for submitting your scholarship application form. We look forward to working with throughout the admissions period."

If he gets the job and you havent heard back by then, I really encourage you to mention it in a LOCI. I had a really nice exchange with Mark Hill (Director of Admissions) where I explained to him both me and my fiance were applying to Duke and he was very understanding, saying he would make sure our decisions were rendered "on a similar schedule." Clearly he made good on that promise and I don't doubt our correspondence played a major role in this fortuitous outcome :)

In at Duke via priority! Email didn't mention a merit offer though. What are the options if you are interested on getting your hands on some scholarship money?

You need to fill out the scholarship application before they offer you any kind of money
