What are your general comments?

"Duke was amazing. I came out of the place blown away by their program. The morning info sessions were the most comprehensive of any school that I had been too, and the tour, though pretty standard, was a lot of fun. I felt like I was in Disneyland. The interviews took place in the afternoon and were laid back, and I had zero ethics questions." -Posted 11/16/2007 | Report Response
