I'm aware that there's a separate scholarship application for Duke. For those of you that have been admitted, what's the deadline on returning the form? Does is specify a date when scholarship decisions are made?

It doesn't specify a deadline for return either on the form or the admissions website, but it does say scholarship notifications will be made on a rolling basis starting in January. I called in mid January (around the 14th) and they said the committee was going to meet for the first time the next week to determine scholarships. Doesn't appear that anyone here has received an offer yet.

I submitted mine when I first got in... I think around Thanksgiving? and I haven't heard anything yet.

I think it's March 1. Not sure about the second question.

Your welcome. I don't think there is a deadline for applying for it though. The ASW says nothing about one.

Can you show any proof of a deadline? Reading the accepted letter it says you aren't even officially accepted until the scholarship committee has reviewed you. This makes me think that you must send in a scholarship app, and they will accept them regardless of when they accepted you.

from the admitted e-mail:

Since you may qualify for a Duke Law scholarship, I encourage you to submit the application at your convenience, but no later than March 1, 2010. If you submit the scholarship application form, you may expect to receive your official admission and scholarship offer letter soon after the review of your scholarship application is completed. (If you do not plan to apply for scholarship assistance but wish to consider an offer of admission from Duke, please let us know so that we can officially admit you now.)

Ah I lost that email, but that sucks for people admitted after March. I guess those people probably wouldn't get merit money anyways (no offense).

I haven't either. I am trying to keep my hopes up, but I'm really starting to get worried that it's a rejection. Does anyone know how they've been rejecting people? Just wondering if they send it in snail mail a few days before the status changes to "decision rendered".

Me either- I was UR 1/29. I applied for the joint JD/LLM with a summer start, so hoping to hear soon.

Any other JD/LLMs hear back?
