What are your general comments?

"The school is awesome academically but lacked a community-feel. My interviewers seemed somewhat disinterested, and although they weren't really intimidating, I got the feeling they were trying to be negative in general and on purpose. I'd go to Duke if it's the best school I get into, but I'd rather be at a lower-tier school where students are interested in knowing each other, having fun, and learning, rather than just who gets the best residency at the end of it all." -Posted 03/05/2003 | Report Response
