Has anyone had any success negotiating with Duke? Sent my negotiation email a week ago, got a quick response telling me that they would consider, and no word ever since. :(

Also interested in this. I'm at the same point. They just sent me a quick email saying that they'd reconsider but that they have limited funding. However, I just sent the email on Sunday. I hope it works out though because I really enjoyed asw but can't justify taking Duke over some scholarships from higher ranked schools.

I sent my letter in on Sunday but did not get a confirmation e-mail from them. Who did you send it to?

Application submitted first week of January...UR 2/25...I knew I wasn't an early application but I didn't think I was so late that I wouldn't get a decision (still waiting) until all the seats were given out...which I am guessing they must be pretty close to having done by now.

Any word on when the scholarship acceptance form is due? I'm still waiting to hear back after appealing my initial award.

anybody else still waiting for a decision and if so have you called them? How are you interpreting this lack of a decision? Not hearing until May really stinks but I am hoping that means we may be one step closer than waitlisters. Don't bash me here for trying to find a positive spin, let me have some hope since I have to deal with this lack of a decision. Comments??? Give me something to read while I wait!

What does it mean if my status keeps updating to "under review" but with a new date. As in, I've been under review multiple times but the date keeps changing. Are you all who are "under review" seeing a constant date on the status checker?

And in!!

Truth time: I applied the day the application was due, so I did NOT see this coming.

I also did not love (didn't hate either) Mich when I visited. I'm confused in the best possible way.
