I'm feeling the WL on this one, but a rejection wouldn't really surprise me. Although it took them an awful long time to reject me.

Edit: Looks like it's an entire splitter batch, making WLs seem likely.

URM splitter here. Haven't updated since my original 11/9 UR date.

tbh, I never thought I had much of a chance at Duke with my GPA, but applied due to my shotgun approach.

You lured me in with you flirtatious fee waiver, then proceeded to play hard-to-get when I found out that others, but not I, received a Priority track invite. Now it seems like you are giving me the silent treatment because I'm been labeled "Application Complete" since OCTOBER and still no word from you 3 months later.

I've sent you emails, letters, updated you on my senior fall transcript.

Oh, Duke Law School, how you devastate me.

Sincerely,
Unrequited candidate



Ohh! Maybe the Duke Law Gods heard me, because the day after I posted this, they accessed my application! Now, current status date is 1/28/10.....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE accept me.....

Still stuck at 11/16.

166/3.7 URM (ish) non-trad

I do, however, have personality, and personality goes a looooooong way.

It's not ASW its Amitted Students Open House :roll:

Lol its March 26th and the 27th, but the 27th is just an "optional tour of Durham" (EXCITING!) and financial aid information. Really thinking about going?

Ehh...if they throw 75K at me in the next few weeks I'll consider it, yeah. But probably not. I might want to go to the NYU one, particularly if I get accepted to CLS (where the f are you, Columbia?)

They're probably in the CLS thread. Im looking also hoping for 75k to get me in at Duke, but if I have to compete with you for that money I'm done for. NYU was one of my top choices, but I've started to shy away from all that debt.

EDIT: Lol I had to post this: has anyone else seriously looked at Duke's viewbook? One of their selling point is the fact that they have 233 lemurs living on campus.....

They are serious about their lemurs. I've actually heard Durham isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. But it's on the wrong coast for me.

I'd be tempted to attend UT Austin if I was from Texas and wanted to live there. Beautiful school and weather and town.

The lemur center is actually really cool...probably not a top reason to attend, but it's definitely unique!

I guess I'm the only person who hadn't heard about this lemur center, but I will make a purpose to see it when I visit now. I just hope scholarship information is released in the next 2 weeks.

I visited the Lemur center about a year ago at Duke. Pretty cool actually...its slightly off campus though, but its def worth a visit-- apparently more interesting in the summer though. And good luck with the scholly info...I'm still hoping I go UR one of these days... haha

Is Duke generally generous with merit aid?

I figure I should probably just get the form off of the admitted students website and send it in as opposed to waiting for the acceptance package.

If only that were possible...we don't have user names/passwords. And yes, they tend to be one of the more generous schools with merit aid. According to the latest LSAC reported data, 72.6 percent of students received grants, with a median grant amount of $10,000. I think that was in 2007.

The username and password should be in your acceptance email.


Oh, the elusive Duke acceptance email....please Duke, I want to attend soooooo much!
