What are your general comments?

"the day starts pretty early. the group interviewing that day meets with an administrator who generally discusses the school and the curriculum. then, a person from financial aid goes over the schools program and answers questions. a student takes the group on a pretty comprehensive tour of the lecture facilities, teaching hospital, and general area while talking about their experience with duke. then its a lunch with a few students and interviews to follow. one interview is supposed to have a ethics theme and the other is supposed to have more of an experiences theme, but they are virtually the same. the student interview is with a third year and the student interviewer seems to have a lot of clout. i loved duke. the facilities and campus are unmatched at any place i have been. the schools reputation speaks for itself, and the innovative curriculum suits my learning style." -Posted 11/07/2005 | Report Response
