    Does anyone know if Duke offers any merit scholarships for the ABSN? I've looked at the scholarships online and it looks like there are a couple need-based and scholarships for minorities but I didn't see anything other than the scholars program (not too sure what that program is either!)

    No kelsey, I don't think there are any merit scholarships. There is a loan repayment option if you work for Duke Hospital for 3 years though!!!

    Kelsey, they do offer 100% tuition + room and board to one student for each nursing program: http://nursing.duke.edu/financial-ai...n-scholarships. Perhaps you saw that one. But, wow, wouldn't that be nice!

    Oh my gosh - thanks so much! I hadn't heard about the loan repayment option but that sounds really great and I will definitely look into it! Do you know if that's something that you need to apply to? 100% tuition would be a dream come true haha..I'm just starting to get nervous about paying for Duke if I am accepted! I worked this past year but won't be working next year and im pretty sure the FAFSA doesn't take that into account : /

    It doesn't look like there's an application process, but that surprises me. I totally understand about the financial aid thing...our salary for last year wouldn't apply when we're unemployed students. I buy a Megamillions ticket every week. Ha ha.

    It sounds like they pick you. I've never really looked into that scholarship, but I think the chances of me getting it are pretty slim haha! I did see that they have small need-based scholarships offered to students based on their financial need though... it says it could be up to $9000 towards tuition, and that you would be award 25% of the award each semester. So the amount varies!

    Also.... I'm starting to panic. I've been obsessively calculating and recalculating my GPA over and over again, and looking over my resume and essays. I'm a mess! I can't believe we have to wait 3 more days! Do you guys think they'll email us at the end of the day or in the morning? I'm not sure what they've typically done in the past...

    I hope they let us know about interviews early on the 30th. This is the only other school that I'm really excited to hear back from that I haven't yet! Did you guys apply to other programs?

    I applied to Johns Hopkins, Marquette, UPenn, and NYU besides Duke. I'm still waiting to hear from every school I've applied to. How about you?
