Anyone else not able to load Duke's status checker right now? My other checkers work... This needs to be fixed! How will I obsessively check for a status update every hour!? What if my UR date changes in the next twenty minutes!? I might not know for several hours!!!

Whoa breathe. Mine isn't working either.

Maybe it's related to the weird LSAC redirect:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=205033

Grats twin. My fate awaits later this week.


I've heard a few people in the same GPA range with 169-171 LSAT have all gotten this amount, I'd expect that unless your app was uber-tailored toward Duke.


maybe, maybe not. i'm in that range and got 75k.

"Same GPA range." Twas an unlisted reference to our same GPA. Assuming you read that as LSAT range. And if I'm wrong...whoops.

Define "uber-tailored." My app was public service oriented and my why duke was really about why I'm interested in the duke in dc program.

2-3 tenths of a percent below yours. You're in a different, more highly sought after gpa range.

Sounds similar to mine, wrote a Why Duke and talked about why the location and specific programs were a good fit for me.

From 12/10 to 2/26 for me. If they wait another month to ding me I think my heart might burst.

They explicitly told you this in a letter? I'm sorry to hear that.

Well, the letter just listed loans -- so, I assume that there is nothing else coming. I am going to send them competing offers that I have from other schools, but not sure if anything will change. Duke is still very high on my list, this just makes it a more difficult to attend.

I don't think they move that quickly, but then again, they might not be going purely in chronological order. Would y'all who received $ yesterday and today mind sharing the date they received your scholarship app?

To any of your who received your award letter: does it indicate that there's a way to see your info online?

Mine was received 1/11. They did not say that it was viewable online. It was weird, you get the same letter with a color copy and a black and white copy. Then they detail the loans needed to cover the remainder of what you'll owe.
