Kind of annoying that there's not a more efficient process for non-PT RD applicants because they're so busy worrying about getting decisions back to folks before the 10-day deadline. I mean, September applicants expecting to hear back by mid-February means it'll probably be closer to March before starting to make a decision on folks who submitted in November/December, which is early! Lol.

+1. Kind of disappointing, specially for a t-14 school.

Does anybody who has had their scholarship interview recently have any more precise insight into when the scholarship committee will meet for the first time? I know on last year's thread they reported they didn't meet for the first time until February and mailings were about two weeks after that, curious if we could be on an earlier timeline this year.

I had my interview this week. Not sure about when the committee meets, but Dean Hoye said I would hear back around the end of February.

He said they meet for the first time "at the end of this month" which I would think means either this week or early next. And he said they evaluate then based on the order of when people interviewed.

I submitted my ED app on the 9th (deadline for round 2) and mine still says under review.



Okay, great. Thanks. Spoke to someone in admissions today and they seemed confident decisions would be released on the 31st. I'll keep you posted.

I dunno, I'm sure there are many who disagree but IMO if you were gracious and thanked your interviewer during the call, I don't see the need to follow up, unless you have a question/concern that you didn't get around to addressing. There's no way it can hurt, but I find it totally redundant.

Also not sure re: your second question, I browsed through last year's thread and it seemed like they had at least a couple of different interviewers, but it could be different this year.

For ED (non-PT), do they release decisions before the official release date?

So do non-PT RD people that applied in early Jan not get considered for the scholarships then?

I'm sure everyone gets considered for scholarships but you just won't get the email for it until after you're accepted, which can take a while judging by the rate at which non-PT RD people are getting accepted.

I am going on 24th and 25th only. Don't really want to take off two days from work.


That makes sense! I kind of want to visit a class on the 23rd but I'm also interested in the events taking place on the 25th.. I wish they'd just combine those into one day lol

Oh okay, I'll just wait for it I guess! I would create one but don't use fb often enough to become an admin and manage the page lol

It'd be nice to use fb to connect with fellow travelers to ASW and save on hotel accommodations! I'm traveling from CA so anything would help :lol:

yeah I just checked the Duke Law Class of 2019 page to see if it was created by an official person from Duke Law, but it looks like it was created by students (all three of the admins are students). so it looks like someone would have to create one! not it! :D
