So I'm guessing this is what I should expect... will probably withdraw then.

Oy, not $90k. Too bad; you would make a great classmate at Duke. In your withdraw letter don't forget to include my name and LSAC number as a way to direct the money (PM'd to you) :D .

Congrats lz; thats amazing.

Eh, you might get 90K. I looked back at last cycle and the 75k-90k jump seems pretty random.

So did everyone who got their information today apply for merit aid or need/merit aid? PM me if you don't want to share in public please.

I would love to be a fly on the wall at the admissions office.

Looking at past cycles on LSN, it looks like the situations comparable to mine didn't receive a decision until like April...and it was favorable but I'd rather be stress-free at the end of my semester.

Only merit. Though my parents haven't spent a cent on me in four years, they do have a lot of money. Haha.

Strange, nothing in the mail in SC today. Should've been mailed on the 9th. Maybe tomorrow.

Are scholarships mailed out in the order in which the scholarship form was received by Duke?

$45k + $3k dual degree grant. Not really sure it's enough to draw me away from Michigan, so I'll probably withdraw this week. Did I read right in this thread that Duke won't let you withdraw via email?

Dang. Did you write a 'why Duke'? 45k would make me a bit sad.
