At the school
"Med school is a challenging time personally....What is your support system like at school right now?"
"How would you treat a patient who came in demanding certain prescription drugs?"
"Which member of your family has had the most influence on you???"
"If I were a genie and gave you one wish, what is the one thing you would change about the world?"
"What would I do if a patient did NOT want me to treat them?"
"Read over my application, Duke website."
"The school is beautiful and very well-advanced in terms of technology....even the admissions office waiting area had a computer for us to use and also a flat screen monitor on a wall that had all this stuff about the admissions process! Students seemed to be really happy, and the cost of living is extremely low compared to other cities in the South. It was also kind of relieving to know that the 1st year spans 11 months so it's not like they're cramming all the material they give first-years into the more traditional 9 or 10 months. And of course, the third year option is awesome and the finaid presentation was the most informative of any school. "
"Durham is not exactly a great city...I would be willing to overlook it to come to Duke but it would be an adjustment."
"Call the shuttle company first thing when you arrive at RDU, or even before....I ended up shelling out 40$ for a cab ride :P"
"VERY VERY well-organized day and pretty pleasant. I felt like both my interviews combined personal and ethical questions, but there were other applicants there who said they saw a distinction in their interviews, so I guess the alpha/beta thing is hit or miss depending on which interviewers you receive. But nevertheless awesome school....I hate being attached to schools that have like a 3 percent chance of taking me!!!!!!"
