Yeah, it's not like a LOCI is going to hurt. Just change it up a bit from your why Duke?

Scholarship in the mail today. 77k for JD/LLM. Less than UVA, so I'll probably be withdrawing. Although because of the travel stipend, I may go visit first anyway. Just to be sure.

171/3.98. Do you mean my scholarship application received date? It was mid-February, I believe.

Do you get invited to apply for scholarships, or is that a form that I missed on the original app?

It turns to "Decision made; you will be notified soon" and then you get an email, and then snail-mail

I will be withdrawing my application from the waitlist today. I'm lucky to be participating in Teach For America for the next two years, after which I plan on re-applying to law schools. I hope my spot opens up someone's chances.
