I know right! I'm guessing you all should be getting one in the mail soon too! It has a bunch of info on PI, clerking, firm employment, Duke in DC, Wintersession, and clinics.

I got that info packet today, too.

It was mailed priority on 3/8. My scholarship letter was mailed 2/28.

Where is my scholarship letter???? MY EMOTIONS ARE ON A TIGHTROPE RIGHT NOW, Y'ALL.

I finally went under review (yay!) and was curious how long it took people to move from UR1 to UR2?

Has anyone attempted negotiating yet? Do we know how generous Duke has been with negotiating in the past and which schools they're willing to beat/match?

I've been talking to some friends about their law school experiences, and I was told by one recent UVA grad that she had called Duke to negotiate and was told that because their scholarship assignment relies on an entire committee to make decisions, re-evaluation of her case would be lengthy (but not out of the question). She ultimately didn't end up pursuing it, so that's all I've got.

I know someone last cycle bumped their 90K offer to 135K by using their 150K offer from NU.

Someone else bumped 60k to 72k with a 75k offer from UM

Just went UR3! I'm not PT, does this mean a waitlist or ding is coming?

for anyone else who has the notification that scholarship info was mailed on 3/8, have you received the letter yet? I've been having a lot of issues with my mail service lately so I want to make sure it's not lost :shock:
