How do you know this? Did you talk to admissions? I'm just wondering what you are basing this on.



this is exactly the case. the money they are giving us is a combination of merit and need. Unfortunately, there shall be no more $$$ after the initial notification, unless you don't negotiate for more, of course.


I was thinking about the Duke thing...Could the letter that we've been getting be a combination of merit and need based aid?  They did have all of us fill out the scholarship form with the financial info at the beginning.  I hope not, but just a thought.

I also got 20k over 5. Honestly, I expected more.

30k over 5 semester.  You know the drill. 

I wasn't expecting much or anything from Duke so I was very excited to get this today.  Duke is seeming like a better fit for me everyday.  Especially when/if some of these top 5 schools ding me. 

I'll be there at the admitted students weekend.  Anybody else planning on making the trip?

Yo sordo,

Is the $ at Duke tempting to you or are the crosshairs set on Chicago?

Man,not sure.  From what I've heard, Chicago is truly a cut above the Virginias and Dukes of the world and the education and job opps are unbeatable.  I'm going to visit though to see what I think and feel.  Leaning Chicago right now, though.
