What are your general comments?

"Definitely my most challenging interviews of the cycle.. that being said, Duke is the bomb! Some places I went my interviewers made me feel unimportant or obviously had not read any aspect of my application. This place wants to get to know you through the essays, and they are dead serious about it. Just to dispel something brought up on here, merit scholarships are NOT by any means reserved for minority students" -Posted 03/23/2010 | Report Response
