Good evening, I got a 20k scholarship but still can’t afford the remainder. Please can anyone advise how I can get additional funds or scholarships? Duke is my first choice and I don’t want to miss my admission


When did you receive the scholarship answer?

It is very soft. Dean Maher asks some questions about your application and your interests.

Good luck!

Is anyone aware if Duke have extended their April 1 deadline for confirmation and deposit of the requisite fees?

Hi, just wanted general feedback on my perspectives on Duke, so far -
(i) Does it make sense to chose Duke over NYU and Columbia due to the better faculty to student ratio?
(ii) Heard Duke LLM students do well at the LLM job fair in January, every year, and quite a few of them have been placed with law firms at Raleigh as well.
(iii) Faculty at Duke appears at par with faculties at NYU and Columbia.


You raise good points; I have been wondering the same. I will be focusing on HR, so I am struggling to decide plus financial aid decisions. If we take Columbia out of the picture (CLS is the best in HR). While the School you attend more or less influences the likelihood, you are more likely to get a job if you have prior (relevant) work experience, other necessary skills etc.

Hello, I had my interview today earlier and Dean Maher asked questions related to my application, i.e. my TOEFL score, plans after the LLM program and about my fiancé who is applying to MBA program.

I know! I mean, we all get the Covid-19 situation has gone from bad to horrendous in the States and my heart really goes out to all the students there, especially the current LLM lot that are taking their lessons online while remaining in an ongoing lockdown mode.

Just a simple e-mail confirming or not confirming the April 1 deadline would really go a long way.....

Exactly my thoughts! Should we all e-mail non-stop to convince them? Some schools already sent an e-mail extending the deadline. It'd be nice to hear something from Duke about this.

I got a scholarship of 30k yesterday, still can’t afford the remainder so I am thinking of asking for more. The email said I had to accept or reject by April 1st so it doesn’t appear that Duke will move the deadline.

I also got an email earlier today saying that they are monitoring the coronavirus situation but that the plan is for the LLM year to start on course. They did mention that their current LLMs had to be transitioned to remote learning platforms.
