"just putting this out there: duke says they don't give interviewers your scores, but they do. my faculty interviewer specifically commented on my mcat score. i got the feeling that they have just recently instated the no-scores interviewing policy and haven't gotten around to telling the interviewers about it, lol." -Posted 11/20/2006 | Report Response

"student interview was pretty standard, and she was so nice! why medicine? tell me abt your research. why your college? what would be your biggest fear abt coming to duke?
