What impressed you negatively?

"Durham (my bus drivers both told me the crime rate was high for such a small city) and how the campus seemed a bit isolated from the city.

What are your general comments?

"I really felt that I should have been more impressed by Duke, because it truly was a great day. I love the curriculum, but somewhere in my gut just tells me it isn't a good fit for me. The financial aid is also generous, and the chapel and campus are beyond words." -Posted 10/15/2002 | Report Response
