Waitlisted via email today. I'm extremely disappointed and confused. At 3.65/173 I didn't expect this.

UR 1/21, then 1/22, btw.

I spoke to the Financial Aid office on January 28th, I believe.
As I recall, they said they'd start looking at scholarship applicants the next week hopefully (the week of 2/1), and then they would start sending out offers that week or the week after (the week of 2/8 AKA this week).

Don't hold me to this. And obviously no one has heard yet. But hopefully the offers are coming soon. Also, they are really, really nice.

Were you PT? Did you write a "Why Duke?"?

Good to hear. I'd love to get a good offer from Duke so that I can start withdrawing other places. I really like this school a lot, I think it's very underrated.

I've been under review since 1/26. But, judging by some of the posts on this forum, that doesn't mean I'll be getting a decision anytime soon.

Called today and financial aid lady said "I know they started working on them today" .. so looks like they just started, who knows if they send out decisions right away or if they wait until their done with everyone

edit: about scholarships of course

OMG YES, just emailed:

Thank you for submitting your scholarship application form to Duke Law School. I?m writing to give you an update on our scholarship selection process.



First, thank you for your patience. Our Scholarship Committee has taken some extra time to carefully analyze the resources that will be available for the incoming class, in order to offer the most generous awards possible to those who qualify. This work is now complete. A number of scholarship decisions were made today, and many more will be issued in the next few weeks. We are working on applications in the order that they were received and expect to notify everyone who has already submitted an application by the end of this month.



Scholarship notifications will be sent via U.S. mail, but you can track when the mailing is made through Duke?s online status checker. (?Scholarship decision mailed? will appear under ?Mailings? as soon as the decision letter has been sent to you.)



Thank you again for your patience during this important process!

+1 And according to my status checker, they mailed the decision today. I should get it tomorrow or Thursday, since I'm only a state away.

Lame, checked my status checker and it has nothing. The form was received on 12/3, so I wonder when I will hear. When have people getting decisions mailed already have their form received on the status checker?
