I got more than I expected. With my numbers, I thought I'd get either $45K or $54K, but I got $60K. I wrote a Why Duke.


Yes, but you are also 2x the person I am (I measure people by law school acceptances). Besides that though out situation at Duke seems similar, so I can only hope I get equal treatment. You're in Cali, right? I guess the 4 hour difference explains why you got yours today

Haha, I am all that is man!

Yes, I am in NorCal. What 4 hour difference?

EST vst PST. Assuming the letters arrived at the same exact time, it was 12pm here and 9am there. Early enough to get picked up for you but too late for me.

Oops lol. I sometimes think that Cali has broken off and floated an hour away? Yes, that explaination will suffice.

So I assume that no one has heard anything about acceptances lately? Does anyone have any ideas why that might be?

Maybe they're backed up with the scholarship notifications. I've been UR for a while with strong numbers and I'm still waiting. Hopefully we'll get more decision movement next week.

Tough decisions...or they're sadistic and want to keep us hanging on. For my own sanity, I prefer to believe the former.

I guess it's just a bloodbath at all the schools from here on out. I should quit coming here.

I'm still UR 11/16. Whatever they're going to do I wish they'd just get on with it. I suppose I could email and withdraw but that seems like too much effort at this point.

72K. Merit only. I don't think it's enough to pull me away from my other options so I'll be withdrawing soon.

I would go to Duke, but the job prospects aren't good enough for me.
