Is this really what an acceptance letter looks like. . . ?
« on: November 24, 2008, 10:28:23 PM »
So tonight I got an email that said I'd been accepted for admission to Duke Law. However, in the next paragraph, it said that I "will be officially admitted to Duke Law when [they] conclude the scholarship review process," and that I would either need to apply for financial aid/ merit scholarships or waive access to the scholarship program, before I get my "official" acceptance in January.
Is this how most acceptance letters look? If this isn't an "official" acceptance, then what the hell is it? Should I tell my mom that I got in, or should I keep my mouth shut until January in case they rescind their offer (since it's not yet "official")?

Looks like you're in to me. It's enough that you might be able to sue them if they decline you later, and that counts in my book.

Can't sue nobody without a law degree first.

Sure you can. That's what lawyers do, but you'll learn about them soon enough. ;)

In a few days, you will get a more official looking package in the mail.  Quit worrying... you're in!

Dude, this post is like 8 months old. There was no need to post this. Pretty sure she's gotten his letter at this point. Plus if you had bothered to check her LSN account, you would see that she got into Harvard anyway...so Duke really doesn't matter.
