"read any good books lately? "
"i really liked your ethical dilemma essay ... are you proud of the way you handled the situation? "
"do you like music?"
"the whole interview process was very conversational. mostly "tell me about yourself and how you got here." and "why duke?""
"none were difficult - this was open file and conversational. "
"read thoroughly over the website (they have a VERY unique curriculum that you should understand before going to your interview)"
"the facilities were BEAUTIFUL. the curriculum is really innovative and non-traditional"
"durham, nc. yick. i hear chapel hill is cool, though. "
"how young everyone was. average age was like 22? being a little on the non-trad side, this is a sketch too young for me, i think"
"it was an informative day, not too stressful. interviews were conversational. started w/"tell me about yourself" and went from there. they're really big on that 3rd year research year, so be prepared for that. do NOT apply if you're not interested in research. the students seemed alright, a little high-schooly, but i only met a couple of them. i think i met like 3 students over 24 the entire day, and only one M1 over 24.
