financial aid office (use the one on their website not the scholly letter, it's different)

included in initial email

Literally came to this thread to ask this same exact question. Thanks proteinshake, you've got my vote for MVP!

Yeah, had a date change 8 days ago I think. I was under the impression that the turnaround after a change was typically quick but obviously I was wrong haha.


I've been ghosted since early February :oops:

I've been UR2 since 3/22. I have a deadline on Saturday, so I called the office yesterday to see if I could get a timeline. They just said they're aiming to have all decisions out by the end of the month, nothing more specific.

Is anyone aware of any Facebook Groups for people selling furniture in the Durham area? Trying to find some cheap furniture for the apartment I just got!

Us current students have a buy/sell page to check out for stuff people sometimes sell (3ls will probably be selling furniture here in the next few weeks)

UR2 as of today. The message at the top of the online tracker that said "a decision could come anytime between now and the end of April" is gone, now it just says "We appreciate your continued interest in Duke Law School. If you would like to submit additional/updated material, feel free to do so by email (admissions@law.duke.edu) or U.S. postal mail."

If we submit the enrollment deposit we only need to withdraw from schools to which we were admitted right? That does not include wait lists?

When's the deposit date for Duke? I've been ghosted for a month now and I'm wondering if they're waiting for initial deposits to come through.

Congrats! Are you pulled off Priority Reserve, or have you just not have heard back?

assuming that the "waitlist update" email they sent out this morning means that they will be pulling from the waitlist soon? very promising that they're letting us know that they have a few spots open, although not trying to get my hopes up too too much. is there already a duke waitlist thread for this year? i haven't seen one.

I didn't think about it that way, but you might be onto something!
