I called duke yesterday. They just finished sending out their first round of scholarship packages. The person i spoke to said they began another review phase of accepted applicants today. They review and award money based on when you were accepted.

Thank god! That's great to know! I thought Duke wasn't going to give me any love! (Not that they're still going to, but there's a chance!)

eestiarmastus, I am with you in not expecting much from duke but you never know. Our numbers are very similar but i have the added disadvantage of being early decision which i think will lead to even less money since they know I'm going.
