What are your general comments?

"I left Duke with a positive/neutral impression. I really dig their philosophy, I really dig the 3rd year idea, and their students are the most approachable I've seen anywhere (besides my bizarre student interviewer). I really hope I get in, but at the same time, I don't want to be in Durham for 4 years. That wouldn't stop me from going to this great school though. Insane residency matches. 2nd best in the nation on USMLEs step 1 (after UPenn, which coincidentally has a similar shortened preclinical). Cheaper than other Privates in the same league.
