What are your general comments?

"Wow! I was absolutely blown away by Duke. I knew it was going to be great, but I had no idea just how amazing this place is. The first thing that should strike you is how unbelievable the people are. The administration will tell you that the students are the stars, and they aren't kidding. All the people I met (students, faculty, administration) are incredibly passionate about Duke. I stayed with students and they couldn't say enough good about their school. The day starts with a talk with Dr. Armstrong - which is amazingly motivational. Then, there is a financial aid talk. Duke has great packages. A tour was given by a first year student who was not only informative, but very funny and personable. We had lunch with a few students and also students would randomly pop into the office where we were all day to talk to us. As I said, they were all so positive about Duke. Just before the interview, the associate dean gave us a pep talk that really fired me up. He, just like Dr. Armstrong, was a phenominal speaker. The interviews started at noon. There were two of them and each lasted one half hour. I hung around after my last interview to talk to more students, faculty, and administration before my host generously drove me to RDU. It was an amazing day and Duke is incomparable to the other schools where I have interviewed. It has launched to the top of my list and I absolutely will go there if offered a slot." -Posted 12/08/2007 | Report Response
