Lol as a salty non-PTer I'd withdraw my app from Duke, but I paid $35 for that CAS fee.

I have my interview early this week and still haven't submitted the scholarship app (oops). Will I need to reschedule, or will they not care as long as I get it in this week?

My interviewer said the committee meets on Fridays so my guess is as long as you get it in by Friday you should be good

I forgot to add this earlier, but my interviewer said on 1/12 that they hadn't received their scholarship budget yet but that the committee would start meeting as soon as they got it, which may have already happened. Then they expect the first waves of decisions to go out in mid February, and that they generally send them out in the order in which applicants interviewed.

Are you all also submitting the CSS form or just the merit aid form?

I personally just did merit because I have merit offers at other schools that I'm happy with and CSS is a pain

Do we need to have all of our aid information submitted before the interview? I don't think I'll get much need based aid but it is probably good to fill it out.

I had mine without submitting. Just get it in ASAP because they'll start reviewing next week or the week after

OK thanks. What was the interview like? Was it more general or did they ask a lot about finances?

It's very general. At the end they told me I could let them know about any offers from peer institutions but other than that it's more like an acceptance interview.

Why law, why Duke, why Law now (if KJD), what you can bring to Duke Law were my questions.

Anyone applied and into the JD/LLM? Or anyone know a lot about it? I don't see it talked about much, though it seems like an interesting opportunity. I have no sense at all of what kind of selectivity it has.

Between Duke taking forever just to go UR and UNC taking forever to do everything, it seems like the law schools of NC really want me to leave this state (at least until Wake gives me a full ride...:D)

Yep! It was discussed during my scholarship interview and I work with an attorney who completed the program a while back. PM if you’re interested in info on that end :)

Does anyone know how much Duke will usually give you for travel for ASW? Tickets to NC are super pricey from the midwest.
