I'm a dual degree applicant and I went ur1 on 2/18 and still there. Haven't heard yet on any turnaround for those applicants. Did you apply to the summer dual degree program?


Yep I did! Assuming you did too? Curious about turnaround since they also have to send the apps to the grad program, and I think I read somewhere on this thread that the deposit is earlier too? Slash let's be real haha I also just wanna know

ETA: Forgot to say that I'm also curious because I'm trying to make summer plans but I can't commit to anything until I've heard back from Duke :evil:

Congrats on the nice scholarship! How did you get your letter so quickly, though? You're international, right?...one day?


Thanks! It is definitely more than I expected.

I am international, so they emailed me a copy of the letter. I am not sure if that is standard practice for internationals; I emailed Admissions when I was accepted to request expedited shipping of the acceptance packet. Other packets have taken 3-4 weeks to arrive. Apparently the Admissions relayed the request to Financial Aid.

I was just reviewing my scholarship award letter looking for info on loans. From the letter, it seems like we should expect another one here soon (late Spring) where it lists how much in loans are available to us and detailing how to apply?

So who all is definitely going to ASW next week? It's the same time as TLS favorite Northwestern so it'll be curious to see how many TLSers show up...

Michigan's having their ASW on the same weekend, too. If any TLSers go to Duke's, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I got "Priority Reserved" back in January and honestly I didn't really care because I wasn't considering Duke too seriously, but my situation has changed slightly and now I think Duke could be a great option for me. Has anyone had any luck getting off the priority reserve list? Sent a LOCI this morning.

Looking forward to spending Friday at the law school, have to spend the rest of the weekend house hunting. Really hoping to make this Duke thing work!

I was PR'd too. Sent a LOCI shortly after, nothing since. I don't think I've heard of any movement so far off of it, but I could have overlooked it.
