What impressed you positively?

"The student body seems fabulous. They are so friendly and outgoing. The stopped by where we were waiting throughout the day to get drinks and candy and stuff. And all of them were so positive and made you feel so comfortable. Duke's campus is gorgeous, even if they say Durham is not too exciting. The students also assured me that the first year is not as horendous as it sounds like it would be : )" -Posted 11/30/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I am still not sure if their curriculum is right for me. They seem to be so geared towards producing physician scientists, and I am not sure that that is the direction I want to go. there are other things that you can do with that year off, like get an MPH etc. Many other schools give you some flexibility with electives and such the first two years, but Duke has taken all the flexibility there and put it into the third year. " -Posted 11/30/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Duke is a very impressive school. The students were fabulous and friendly. Their curriculum is very unique, and I am not sure if it is for me, but it gives you a ton of opportunities to explore aspects of medicine that you would not otherwise experience. " -Posted 11/30/2004 | Report Response
