What are your general comments?

"very positive. duke is probably my #1 choice, which is too bad b/c it's soo competitive. overall, they are looking to see who fits in and can gain the most in their system, so be yourself. if you get an interview, they know you can handle the work. fyi, interviews are open file except your gpa and mcat score to reduce bias.. a great idea" -Posted 10/13/2004 | Report Response
