"The positive attitude (laid-back, yet focused) of all of the students. The amount of hands-on and one-on-one training incorporated into the curriculum. The massive expansion of the medical center campus over the past 10 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The schools the other interviewees had attended/are attending." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff was very friendly and helpful. There were med school students coming in and out of the office all day (to get free drinks and to talk to us). The associate dean gave us a very thorough explanation of the unique curriculum and the history and reasoning behind it. She was very well spoken, and I like their curriculum better now that I understand more about it. Our tour guide was very bubbly and fun, and she was very honest and open."

"the students were smart and enthusiastic, the main lecture room was nice, the curriculum is great" More from this Member | Report Response

"the students are normal folks w/ great senses of humor; relatively new Global Health dept; proximity of the hospitals and research buildings to the remainder of the Duke community; financial aid" More from this Member | Report Response

"I actually went into my interview day biased against Duke, and left loving it. Curriculum is extremely well thought out and organized. They don't cram 2 years of material into 1 year; instead they distill them into the most important concepts, which are taught in the 1st year, then continue to teach the other topics during 2nd year rotations (so that you "learn by doing"). Students are given an inordinate amount of responsibility and are allowed to try many procedures in rotations. Tons of research opportunities in the 3rd year, and many scholarships are offered so that overall the cost of 4 years of medical school is much less. You can also leave in the 3rd year to complete a 2nd graduate degree. And, it was WARM and I didn't need a jacket in early February. Flowers were blooming all over the gorgeous campus."

"facilities, interviewees, general friendliness of the people at duke" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students I talked to appeared to all be happy with the learning environment and were enjoying their time at Duke. They were all down to earth and friendly with us and each other. The undergrad campus is very nice, definitely has an Ivy League look to it, and has a great gym. Hospital is huge, and has a lot of opportunities to work in any area you want. Research is worked into the curriculum, which is a plus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students all seem happy, love the curriculum, and say they are not stressed and don't work any harder than students at other med schools. Everyone was friendly. The opportunities for research or second degrees durring the third year are amazing. The clinical education also seems to be one of the best. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is absolutely beautiful. People were very friendly. Students were very approachable and willing to answer questions. Everyone seems very laid-back and relaxed, but they work very hard and it shows. Duke Hospital and the Children's Hospital are both very impressive facilities. Great student interviewer! Both knew my application and asked questions that prompted meaningful responses. Not a lot of ego, which was nice. Faculty and administration very down to earth and courteous. The ampitheater where you have most of your first year classes was AMAZING (like the UN, only better, you'll get what I mean when you see it). I'm very happy that I traveled to the campus."

"The friendliness of the students and staff and how much the students enjoy going to school at DukeMed (one student commented that he didn't even feel like he was going to med school because he was enjoying it so much-maybe a little far-fetched but encouraging none-the-less) " More from this Member | Report Response

"The doctor who interviewed me was very friendly. We had more of a conversation than an interview. At first I was disappointed when all the on-site interviews were booked and I had to do a regional.

"The student body seems fabulous. They are so friendly and outgoing. The stopped by where we were waiting throughout the day to get drinks and candy and stuff. And all of them were so positive and made you feel so comfortable. Duke's campus is gorgeous, even if they say Durham is not too exciting. The students also assured me that the first year is not as horendous as it sounds like it would be : )" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is beautiful and very well-advanced in terms of technology....even the admissions office waiting area had a computer for us to use and also a flat screen monitor on a wall that had all this stuff about the admissions process! Students seemed to be really happy, and the cost of living is extremely low compared to other cities in the South. It was also kind of relieving to know that the 1st year spans 11 months so it's not like they're cramming all the material they give first-years into the more traditional 9 or 10 months. And of course, the third year option is awesome and the finaid presentation was the most informative of any school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The first year lecture hall is amazing! It's so comfy and even has little speakers at every desk. The lectures are videotapes and available online. The students were pretty nice.

Also, the support system for all students, especially minorities, is amazing. Basically, I was positively impressed by everything!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The 3rd year (when you do your own project) is very flexible. You can do research or get another degree (MPH, JD, MPH, etc.) and do so at just about any other school (I was told that people have gone to Oxford and Africa). The first year doesn't seem that it would be as hard as you would think, but still harder obviously." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is beautiful, the students sharp yet not cutthroat, and the curriculum different and intriguing. Also Duke grads have lower debt, on average, than grads from even state med schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"That you have the opportunity to obtain an MD/MPH in four years. Duke is the only school in the country that provides this opportunity. Students complete all of their basic sciences in the first year, start and complete their clinical clerkships during the second year, has the entire third year devoted to research (where you can pursue a second degree instead), and the fourth year is used to round everything up. Also, Duke students score at or above the 90th percentile on the boards. I was also very impressed with the interview questions that were posed to me during the beta interview. That is the time when they can see who you really are because it's difficult to give a sugar coated answer (something they want to hear). With these questions you truly have to use your personal medical experiences and values to answer them." More from this Member | Report Response

This was the only school I applied to in the South. Little does Duke know what a major draw that is to us southerners." More from this Member | Report Response

"3 week summer break after first year" More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked Durham, but students who are looking for a big city may not be happy there. Not all major cities have direct flights to Durham making travel more difficult." More from this Member | Report Response

"More things than I expected. My interviewers were overall nice, though my student interviewer had the flattest aspect I've ever seen in a person. She literally gave me a half-smile once and otherwise listened to my answers with no nodding or "Mmhmm's. It was somewhat disconcerting. Second, neither interviewer really seemed to respond to any of my thoughts on wanted to stay rounded in med school. I've got a family, so I mentioned wanting to spend time with them, and it didn't really seem to resonate with either person. Third, the doctor giving the Duke curriculum overview rubbed me the wrong way. He was a super name-dropper, and he was constantly saying stuff like, "My uncle, who was the governor of New York, and my dad, who was the founding chair of the department of pediatrics at Case Western, blah, blah, blah" and "My preceptor at Harvard, who later went on to found the department of medicine for such and such," He just constantly referenced all the amazing people he had worked with even when it was very tangential to whatever we were discussing. Then, he also kept mentioning how at Duke we would have this research year (which I think is cool), and we should do research at the NIH or the CDC or Yale or Harvard and how we'd get to know lots of people there and build relationships so we could all go work at awesome schools when we graduated because we'd know all these super famous, influential people."

I'd like to see the hospital and where I'll be for the next 4 years. He was reserved, quiet and aloof. The lunch could be better. Too many abstract questions were asked...I wonder what they got out of the interviews. I thought I would have liked Duke, but I felt completely out of place and uncomfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The area looked dead! I got there on a Sunday and walked around the medical school area and barely saw any people! It was actually depressing. I went to all of the ''hot spots'' of Durham, but they were either closed on Sunday or just not really ''hot spots.'' If you are a city person, adjusting here would be tough.

"I know I come from a small unknown school and I am not the smartest in the pack of applicants, but the interviewers made me feel like I wasn't even supposed to be there.

"I am still not sure if their curriculum is right for me. They seem to be so geared towards producing physician scientists, and I am not sure that that is the direction I want to go. there are other things that you can do with that year off, like get an MPH etc. Many other schools give you some flexibility with electives and such the first two years, but Duke has taken all the flexibility there and put it into the third year. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Durham is not exactly a great city...I would be willing to overlook it to come to Duke but it would be an adjustment." More from this Member | Report Response

"When they told us the avg MCAT was 36 and avg gpa was 3.8, I was tempted to walk out :) I have no idea how I got an interview at Duke..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was so short! I really really love Duke and have worked in its hospitals and clinics for years. There is a lot of great stuff here that they didn't choose to show the applicants. I found that weird." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, except that the student tour could have been more organized." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am a city boy, and Durham is really small. It's nearby stuff to do but you have to have a car if you want to go there (or else you are dependent on others for a social life). There are a lot of things to do if you to get away from the hustle and bustle of a city, which is good, but I like being within minutes of doing anything you want." More from this Member | Report Response

"Limited opportunity to talk with students other than first-years who had been there only a couple of months and could speak to very little about the school. The students I did talk to seemed to think it was cool to tell the interviewees how seldom they attended class." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seemed a little bit stressed. Most said that they didn't work as hard as they did in undergrad, but I find it hard to believe." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some condescending attitudes. One interviewer was late, and then cut the talk short." More from this Member | Report Response

"I dislike long interview days that involve downtime and this day did. Some of us had to sit for an hour or more in the admissions room (well we could have left I suppose) while we waited between interviews. It just seems wasteful of our time to me?" More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview is only 30 min...and by the time you think you are getting started, it is already over" More from this Member | Report Response

"durham is a small southern town." More from this Member | Report Response

"not too much, really. my student interviewer was intense and made me a little nervous, but nothing too bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing negative stood out." More from this Member | Report Response

"eh, durham is not the most exciting city in the world. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewer was piss-poor at conducting an interview. She lacked the ability to steer a conversation and was resistant to gentle pushes. She had a list of 8 questions that were on her agenda for the allotted .5 hour and none of them were specific to my application. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were not held when scheduled. My second interviewer kept me waiting for over an hour. The meal requests (vegetarian, kosher) were not honored." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interveiw. It was just the luck of the draw. I got an uninterested interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't think that the interviewers really tried to get to know me beyond my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"Durham isn't a great city, but Chapel Hill is just down the street. " More from this Member | Report Response

"not much." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hotel access in the area is spotty. Reserve early." More from this Member | Report Response

"Classes are basically 9-5 and the first year is 11 months rather than eight. However, this is medical school and you're learning a great deal in one year so you need as much time as you can get." More from this Member | Report Response

"things aren't very close together, need a car" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really...maybe that there is no on campus housing" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't too thrilled with the quality of the interviewers. At Duke, you have an "Alpha" and a "Beta" interviewer (2 interviews), and I didn't think either of mine were great. Both had no flexibility in terms of asking follow-up questions, and with their lack of social skills, it is a wonder they could interact well with patients at all. Luckily, the other students there thought so too!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Stress level of the school. There is an AOA here; and I would have to study my tush off indefinitely." More from this Member | Report Response

"Though the students seemed happy to be at Duke, they did not seemed thrilled to be giving tours, fielding questions, etc. Perhaps it was the time of year." More from this Member | Report Response

"well, coming from LA, Durham is a bit sleepy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Finaid presentation was a little bit cut-and-dry (kind of corny, but very informative...except the lady didn't really seem to want to help out too much.) Also, confusing to get around. I spent ~ 20 minutes just trying to locate the admissions office. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the lunch...not very good." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, its expensive like most other private schools, but if I had to choose between this expensive set of schools, I would definitely choose Duke over some of its peers and "higher ranked" institutions just because of its third year." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a horrible regional interview that I am incredibly upset about. My interviewer asked no questions about my background, and when I volunteered personal info, she changed the subject. She cut me off when I answered her questions about ethics. After about thirty minutes, her friend came over and sat behind us. She then claimed she had errands to do and that we had to end the interview (while I was in mid sentence.) After I got up to leave, she sat with her friend, as if they had a planned meeting. The worst part was when the interviewer stated that she thought my college only focused on writing and not on research. I had to remind her about my research background and what a science major was like at my school. She didn't seem to change her opinion after my explanation. This interviewer obviously came to the table with preconceived notions about what I was like and obviously did not read my application before asking questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish my interview was open-file so that the interviewer would have had some backgbround. What I didn't like is that he forgot to tell me that it was closed-file (he later apologized), so that during the first part of the interview I omitted a few things which I figured would have been repetitions from my application. Later, as I realized he didn't get my references to the application, I backtracked. If you are not sure if it is open/closed file-AKS." More from this Member | Report Response

"lots -- the students didn't seem that happy and a little snotty. the curriculum seemed a little too intense (i heard the word rigorous more than I would have liked). the students and faculty kept talking about how they were better than other top schools, which was annoying and unnecessary (just made duke look paranoid)."

"The dreary weather today and some of my second interviewer's questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Durham (my bus drivers both told me the crime rate was high for such a small city) and how the campus seemed a bit isolated from the city. Also, for med school it really seems like a commuter campus (you need a car - they said this in the financial aid presentation)." More from this Member | Report Response

"That outside of the few restaurants located on the campus, one would have to drive or walk for a bit to find other places to eat." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview times are random, so you can't predict what time you're going to be finished. My interview was done a few hours before I could check into my hotel for the night and I had nothing to do. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The poor interviewers also had to run through 6 students in one sitting (3 hours). I felt very, very bad for them, but could not help wonder how well they really got to know me, being as fatigued as they clearly were." More from this Member | Report Response

"there are not too much diversity, mostly white people" More from this Member | Report Response

"Brief interviews sort of threw me. I had a lot of things that I didn't get to say, but the interviewers said they got a good picture, so whatever." More from this Member | Report Response

"no on campus housing and this is just personal, because i'm from the northeast, but it was a really southern atmosphere..." More from this Member | Report Response

"How great the school is and how interested they are in training academic physicians" More from this Member | Report Response

"zip" More from this Member | Report Response

"That Duke doesn't have rolling admissions: obviously one of those things I should have known but didn't. I'm really happy about this because I applied relatively late." More from this Member | Report Response

"Though I used to live there, I had forgotten that Durham is a much smaller city and things are much closer. I didn't really need to rent a car. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They're so focused on research and apparently on their graduates doing research later on. I wish I had known that you do an entire year-long research project (and thesis) but you don't get a dual degree for it." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was more interested in recruiting me than hearing what I had to say - he even drew me a little map of the campus and insisted I go look around and check out the basketball arena! The second interviewer was a 3rd year med school student who had all his questions prepared (typed out on his computer) before I got there. He made sure he asked me all his questions before I was able to ask him questions and make it more conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"That although they say it's a semi-closed file interview (they don't look at your GPA or MCAT scores) that's not always true! You should prepare for having to deffend a bad grade in your record (a ''C'') and if need by your MCAT scores." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews are SEMI-CLOSED. They have access to all your essays and AMCAS, but NOT your GPA or MCAT score. The Admissions Director said, "We are looking for two qualities in our candidates: a capacity for academic brilliance as well as [something like 'humaneness' or 'human understanding']. We assume that if you are invited for an interview, you are academically prepared to study at Duke. So, in your interviews, we do not disclose GPA or MCAT so that your interviews can gauge your [humaneness]." Sorry, I can't remember what the term she used for "humaneness" was. It was something nice... Also, Chapel Hill and Raleigh are only 15 miles or so from Durham. For some reason I thought they were much further away." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviews would be so conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"that I would have been asked a question on Iraq." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't expect Durham to be so Southern, but almost all of the locals have strong Southern accents, and there is country music playing everywhere. Duke has really good financial aid, and the average student debt is approx 25k lower than the average debt at PUBLIC med schools. Duke also gives some full merit scholarships. Another thing- they black out your GPA and MCAT so that your interviewers don't have access to this info. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The alpha and beta interview classifications don't always apply. Don't be too geared towards classifying your interviews. Also make sure to know your research and explain why it's important. Research is a big priority at Duke. Be sure to buffer in time to get around and find locations. Be careful during lunch with the students, apparently they report back to the SOM office."

"This interview day was not stressful at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much my research would be a part of my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was put at ease about the condensed first year curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school does not have rolling admissions and they compare all applicants before making a decision, which I guess makes everything more fair. If you are from the westcoast, you should be sure to get some sleep the night before of the time difference. You need to be there by 8:00am and it is like five in the morning for us. I had to have 2 cups of coffee by nine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be asked about something at which I had failed. My response now would be "answering this question."" More from this Member | Report Response

"How isolated and rural the Durham area is." More from this Member | Report Response

"That much of the interview was going to be the interviewer reading my credentials." More from this Member | Report Response

"How wonderful regional interviews are! Also, they have your file but they do not know you're MCAT score. Put your heart into the 2ndary, I think it really helped me out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Call the shuttle company first thing when you arrive at RDU, or even before....I ended up shelling out 40$ for a cab ride :P" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I didn't know I was supposed to pre-arrange a shuttle pick up from the airport. So I spent a while looking for a bus to take me to Duke. The shuttle is $25. Otherwise you have to take a cab and that is $31 or $35 or something. Luckily my host came and picked me up after I had been wandering outside the airport for a while :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"For all they talk about the alpha/beta thing, I got NO ethical questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Duke was such a wonderful school and the interview was so not stressful. Oh, and ladies, PLEASE wear shoes that are comfortable. You're gonna be walking alot! (Wish I'd listened!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"You really should have a car if you want to go there. I guess that's true of a lot of schools but definitely Duke and since I live in a city I've never bothered to buy one. I guess I should buy one now. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the focus on research would come out in the interviews. I was asked to talk about research papers I wrote in grad school five years ago and had trouble remembering specifics." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews are not as difficult as I thought they would be!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the city is really not walkable, you definitely need a car to go anywhere" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known that visiting Duke didn't really change my opinion of the school all that much. It's a wonderful place, but all the same, it would've been better to save my money and have a regional interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Many students do an MPH during their third year." More from this Member | Report Response

"not a thing" More from this Member | Report Response

"40% of Duke Med students use the 3rd year to work on another degree - but you don't need to apply or proclaim interest until your 2nd year. Some students are interviewed by Dr. Armstrong." More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed everything would be. Also the average debt for Duke was lower than my state school." More from this Member | Report Response

"How "down to earth" my interviewer was even though he went to Duke Med School." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Duke was so awesome! I would have gone in with it being my number one choice like I did when I came out." More from this Member | Report Response

"that I wouldn't be happy here, but it is a great school for some..." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great school, unique and amazing curriculum, beautiful school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The MMI here is not so bad - just try to relax and express ideas that are consistent with your values in a somewhat logical way (I know it can feel hard to do so under stress). The rest of the day is pretty enjoyable. Try to socialize with your fellow interviewees and keep an eye out for the things that matter to you for deciding on which school to attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"What an amazing school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I hope they show me love." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved this place. They had me at "hello"." More from this Member | Report Response

"good" More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, but they seemed a little too proud of themselves." More from this Member | Report Response

"prestige all around" More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome school and happy students. Would love to go here." More from this Member | Report Response

"One piece of advice: They emphasize research since they are so into it. Try to play up your interest in it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed by this school an I can't wait for march to find out if I got in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"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" More from this Member | Report Response

"Love this place. Definite #1." More from this Member | Report Response

"Because 2nd years were in the hospital, 3rd years doing research, 4th years doing own thing, only got to meet first years. Would have been nice to meet more students from different classes." More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke has a wonderful curriculum, especially if you have particular interests that you want to pursue. It is probably worth finding the medical school admissions office the night before the interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I think Duke rubbed me the wrong way because I've never really had much experience with wannabe-Ivy/Ivy schools before. At Duke, it was all about how going there could get you connections to other amazing schools and give you tons of research opportunities to give you a great career at some awesome medical school. And, not that this is bad, but it seemed like there were a lot of richer kids there too. The financial aid guy seemed quite surprised that 5/10 of us said we already had student loans. He said, "Wow, usually it's a lot fewer of you." And he also in his 9 years there had *never* had a med student apply for the NHSC. Really? No one in 9 years? Of course, the 3 3rd and 4th years I did meet all were going into radiology for whatever that's worth..." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's such a relaxed day, they really do a nice job making you feel welcome. And obviously, it's Duke, so everything about it is just awesome. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke was really fun to interview at. It was purely conversational and laid back. They do a really good job of telling you about the school and all the medical students seemed genuinely happy with their Duke experience. Although I am a Duke undergrad, I still learned a lot about the program. Biggest thing is don't stress as the interviews fly by." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring comfortable shoes for the tour!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a great school. I was really impressed, although it is difficult to envision living in Durham for 4+ years. Most of my interviews focused on what I had written for my secondary application." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was awesome, not at all stressful, and I really really hope I get in. As far as I can tell, the interviews are open-file but blinded to MCAT & GPA." More from this Member | Report Response

"There are two interviews. The alpha interview (open file, but no MCAT and GPA) consisted of a series of questions about myself. The beta interview (closed file) is supposed to push you past your limits, and to determine if you are a compassionate human being. My beta interview involved three ethical scenarios. I heard from other students that they had no ethical questions in their beta interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be prepared for Mr. Wallace's pre-interview pep talk. It was the greatest, most heartfelt 10 minutes of my life. He is so awesome." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started at 8:30 with a brief orientation, then a talk about Duke's curriculum and screening process from the Dean of Admissions. She spoke very highly of all the students at Duke and wanted all of the interviewees to know that the most rigorous part of the application process was already over and that we should relax. Next, we spoke with someone from the financial aid department. I must admit, I was impressed by the lack of debt Duke students leave with. We then went on a tour of the facilities, classrooms, labs, and the hospital, all of which were quite nice. The campus is gorgeous! Our tour guide was a fourth year student who was great about answering all of our questions and making sure that each interviewee got to see every part of campus they were interested in. Lunch was great because even more students stopped by to chat and tell us how great the school is. The interviews were last in the day, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be because I was so relaxed by that time. I was interviewed by a fourth year student first and it seemed as if she had a list of questions that she had to get through, so I tried to be somewhat brief. The second interview was given by a faculty member who was extremely laid back, friendly, a seemed genuinely interested in me as an individual and my life experiences. The interviews were so relaxed and conversational that I actually ran over my allotted 30 minutes on both. Overall, it was a great day." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff and students were all extremely nice, very accommodating, and the whole experience gave me a very positive impression of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I expected the interviews to be considerably harder than what I actually experienced. The questions that I got were very standard, and the interviews were relaxed and conversational. In fact, my interviewers probably spoke more than I did and were very into selling the school. I don't think that the other interviewers for the day took this approach, but you must be prepared for either case. The interviews were open file in the sense that they had my primary and secondary applications, but knew nothing about my grades or MCAT score. I felt very welcomed in Durham and on-campus. Duke is a phenomenal school and you get that sense throughout the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke was a great place to interview. I was really nervous after reading all of the interview questions on the SDN website, but it isn't as intense as it seems. The questions are difficult, but the interviewers are very receptive and bring you along with them in a conversation to get to know you better. The medical student does have a certain amount of questions to get through, so its best to keep your answers short, sweet, and to the point." More from this Member | Report Response

"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."

"Not too great overall. The area was disappointing and a bit depressing. Supposedly, Chapel Hill is 20 mins away or something and it's supposed to be a very exciting city..Duke Undergrad is a couple of mins from the MEd School so at least you get some liveliness in the area from those students, but still...i wasn't very impressed overall. The medical school library was not impressive at all, and actually made me think I would never want to study in there (even some first years told us that the library was the worst thing about Duke). The campus has pretty old buildings but the medical clinics and hospital do not look that amazing. Duke has an amazing reputation because of its amazing students (they are very awesome, friendly, bright people) and its highly achieved faculty. However, the location and the social life made Duke not be my first choice...If you are into research you can take advantage of the third year research year at Duke, which is awesome because you can actually save a whole year's worth of money. Also, you can postpone your Boards until the end of third year, which gives you a whole year of no-academics to study for them and do really well. Basically, Duke's program is awesome but its location is not." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, This was a great interview experience. Several other people have commented on this website that Duke goes through a rigorous selection process just to pick who they invite to interview. By the time you've made it to the interview, you've made the academic cut. The 2 interviews seemed to focus on me as a self-aware and self-guided person in an attempt to identify whether or not I would fit well into the team oriented healthcare environment that Duke wants to build. I've also heard that Duke runs an alpha and a beta interview. I didn't personnally feel like I was in that sort of situation, but nearly half of the other interviewees complained that their faculty interviews were only 10 minutes long. My faculty interviewer indicated that she was complete about 10 minutes into the interview, so I started asking open ended questions and using her response as a cue to talk more about myself. I ended up dragging the interview out to about 35 minutes. I think cutting the interview short may have been a scripted attempt to see how the interviewee reacts. My thoughts were that I didn't fly all the way across the country to talk for 10 minutes. I was going to give her a chance to get to know me whether she wanted to talk or not.

"The whole experience was not exactly what I was expecting. There was that one guy in the group of applicants who had to stand up, introduce himself to, and shake hands with each applicant as everyone arrived that morning. I was impressed by all the undergrad schools represented - Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, etc - but the other applicants didn't seem as friendly overall as most of the other schools I interviewed at. (Maybe that's not of prime important when judging the school, but they're my prospective classmates...) My first interviewer was older (he's famous partly for a surgery he worked on in the 40's), and I felt like I wasn't talking loud enough for him. One of the first questions out of his mouth was ''What would you like to research during your third year?'' I came up with something, but I don't think it was convincing. I honestly haven't thought that far ahead. He also asked if I wanted to work in academia or do research later on as opposed to seeing patients full time. After those questions, I felt like the rest of the interview was cut a little short. He shook my hand and said, ''Good luck. I'm sure you'll find the right med school for you, whether that be Duke or somewhere else.'' Probably not a good sign. He was really very nice, I just don't think I told him what he wanted to hear. My student interviewer was very nice and we had a pretty relaxed interview. I didn't think the facilities were amazing, but they were nicer than I expected after reading some of the other more negative feedback. Overall, I'm sure Duke has earned it's reputation as an outstanding research school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived at SOM Admissions @ 8:00. Met in group with the Associate Dean (great guy!). He mainly went over curriculum, the curriculum at Duke is unlike other schools in that all the basic sciences are crammed into the first year and the third year is open (usually used for research). Then we had a brief meeting with Financial Aid. Shown a video on Duke's financial aid package (not that interesting a video, but lots of money is available). Then we went on a tour given by a student, it was somewhat unstructured but the student was very cool. After the tour we had lunch with medical students in a conference room nearby the admissions office, nice way to unwind. Then interviews were given from 12-3:00. Most of the interviews in our group ended well before 3. They aren't back to back which is nice, the wait varied person to person. My faculty interviewer was very nice, little intimidating though. My student interviewer was fantastic. The interview became more like a conversation. Everyone at Duke is very welcoming. I'll feel extremely blessed if I get in. This experience definitely moved Duke up my med school list." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts pretty early. You come in around 8:15 and make up your own little name tag. At 8:30 you get a thorough curriculum presentation followed by a Financial Aid Brief. Both were well done and informative. Around 10:00 you start the tour, which is one of the better ones I've seen. They actually take you into the wards as well as locations around the undergrad campus. The tour is lead by a 3rd year, which is nice becuase they've been there long enough to have some real opinions about the school. After the tour, it's a lunch with a group of students from across the student body. I enjoyed this and took alot away from the different perspectives. Most of the interviews start around 12-12:30. It's a little strange because all of the interviews take place in these central interview rooms. It's kind of like being in a doctor's office waiting to be called. At least you don't have to be led all over campus for your interviews. There's supposed to be an Alpha (experiences) and Beta (ethics) interview, but I really couldn't tell the two apart. My first interview was with a 4th Year Student who asked some of the best questions to date regarding my application. My second interview was with a faculty member who was very open and nonconfrontational despite trying to get a few ethics questions across. I wouldn't sweat the different interviews so much. Just prepare as you might for any other interview. Overall, I thought Duke was a pretty amazing school in all areas. While Durham is not NYC or Boston, housing is extremely affordable and convenient to campus, which is an important consideration to someone a little older like me. I also thought that I felt much better about the first year curriculum after speaking with faculty and students. I think the sacrifices you make in the first year are well worth the advantages of the third year. Duke is one of my top choices." More from this Member | Report Response

"By the time I heard back from Duke about an interview, all of the spots in Durham were filled so I had to attend a regional interview. It was definitely an advantage as far as travel was concerned since I live in Florida, but I didn't get any information about the campus or facilities. Duke was supposed to send information about me to the alumni interviewer but had not, so I had to provide documentation. The interview wasn't so much of an interview for most of the time. The format was basically the interviewer reading the materials I provided on-site (AMCAS, secondary, transcript) and occasionally asking me about certain activities. There was a lot of dead silence time. I was thankful that he was able to provide me with some good information about Duke's research year." More from this Member | Report Response

"First of all, I was really suprized to hear from Duke ( I applied *last minute*). So, when I got the interview, I was elated! At the time however, all the local interview post. were filled - so only regional interviews were offered. This kind of bummed me out bc I thought it would hurt my chances of getting in. But after my interview and looking on Duke's website, I discovered that regional interviews have a higher acceptance rate vs. the ones in Durham! The interview itself: I really liked it. Instead of a faculty member/staff, you're interviewed by an alumni. So you can ask them a lot more personal questions about their experience at Duke and really figure out if it's right for you. My interviewer was awesome. She *just* graduated in May, so it felt more like a peer-to-peer conversation. Also, a friend of hers (A MS4 at Duke) accompanied us. So, I really benefitted from two opinions. I was particularly struck by their outgoing and friendly personalities (not Bookish, etc), and they laughed and joked a lot about their experiences as Medical Students. In short, these were people that I really identified with and that was the strongest selling point that Duke could ever offer. From reading other people's expereinces, I think my interview was a lot easier and less stressful. It really opened the door to just be myself and learn more about the kind of students Duke is looking for. " More from this Member | Report Response

I was impressed that the people I met worked hard to sell the school. But there is definitely an elitist attitude and the focus on specialization and research is a drawback for me. Also, my student interviewer wasted time asking me to summarize my answers to the secondary app that he'd obviously read already and then cut the interview short to catch up on taking notes from previous interviews. With Duke's extensive secondary app, he should have had plenty of information to fill a 30-minute slot." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview experience so I wasn't sure what to expect. Duke conducted it's interviews in a very conversational manner. The alpha interview was done by a student and the beta by a faculty member. They were extremely professional and seemed well trained at interviewing and controlling the flow of questions. In my opinion, the alpha was easier as it focused on my academic interests and what direction I would take my education at Duke. The beta interview had a distinct flow...1)area of interest from my application, 2)simple related ethical question, 3)elaboration on ethical situation, 4)transition to area of interest from my application related to something I mentioned in my previous answer, 5)repeat. I felt the people at Duke honestly wanted to get to know me. If I get in, I would love to go." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall Ok. Kind of disappointing with some elitisit type vibes from interviewers. I really like this school, but I think I left feeling a little disappointed. The med students were really nice, but looked more exhausted than other other school I'd seen so far." More from this Member | Report Response

"Eh. The school is great--trying not to let my feelings from one day influence my opinion. Lets see what happens." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 12 of us and in the begining no one was talking and everyone was just sitting quitely with their heads in the handouts...so I thought this is gonna suck big time.. but then it got better by the end of the day .... we had some Dean give a talk about school...then financial aid .... followed by lunch... the med students were not talking in the begining and then we started opening up a bit....we took extra 15 min for lunch and everything was pushed back 15 minutes.....then some of us had interviews and rest went on a tour.... faculty interview was horrible (there were 2 of them but the one I got was not good...he would talk in half sentences and would want me to complete his sentence and answer as well?????) I heard the other one was more friendly...and 2nd interviewer is a studentt which was awesome..... then we ended our day with a tour ... it went ok but be prepared to give yourself little extra time for finding the admissions office." More from this Member | Report Response

"the student host was great; we went out to dinner w/ 20 of the first-year med students the night before the interview... the info sessions in the morning of the interview day were really helpful... 2 interviews, one of which is with a student... interesting experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"duke left and excellent and lasting impression on me - it went from low on my list to the absolute top. the student hosting experience was particularly helpful and enjoyable. as has been said often, too bad it is so hard to get in here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"very positive. duke is probably my #1 choice, which is too bad b/c it's soo competitive. overall, they are looking to see who fits in and can gain the most in their system, so be yourself. if you get an interview, they know you can handle the work. fyi, interviews are open file except your gpa and mcat score to reduce bias.. a great idea" More from this Member | Report Response

"really awesome, I hope i get in! definitely stay with a host if you get an interview; mine was fabulous and I really got to meet a lot of first-years through her. " More from this Member | Report Response

"As always, the interviewer quality varies by school and day and individuals involved. However, my student interviewer seemed poorly prepared and under-trained. The accomodations are variable in quality depending if you choose a hotel or student host. There is no time to explore the campus on your own on the day of your interview. The financial aid info and lunch session with the dean are quite nice and fun. However, there were a number of interviewees so it was a bit unwieldy for our hosts at times. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall had a good time. Particularly enjoyed my second interview. The doctor even went so far as to said he was recommending me for admission... and then, over a month later (it was supposed to have only been 2 weeks), I got flat-out rejected. I was really really disappointed. Why is it that people who think they had lousy interviews are the ones who get in?" More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewer was more scared of the interview then I was." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews felt like a random requirement and that they were underused by the faculty. " More from this Member | Report Response

"they like to ask ethical q's, be prepared. be sure to know and understand the durriculum (1 year basic sci., 1 year free for research). if you go in unfamiliar w/ this it will be obvious that you have not researched the school. this is not to say you need a plan for your 3rd year, just be aware how it works at Duke." More from this Member | Report Response

"A reasonably stress free interview day. I wish the interviews were in the morning." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started with your picture being taken for a photo ID in the admissions office. You're given an orientation of the school, information from a financial aid officer, and lunch with first year students. Lunch is the followed by two thirty minute inteviews (an alpha and a beta, mine were semi-open) and then a tour of the campus. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke puts together a great interview day, which is considerate of them since people come from all over (I came from Indiana, so they made it worth my while and I appreciate it). We started at about 10:30 am with a presentation by the associate dean of admission. She talked about what makes Duke different, and I wish we would have been able to ask her questions, but she spoke for 45 minutes and then headed out. After that, we had a long presentation on financial aid. Then we had a long lunch with several med students. This was really wonderful. There were more med students than interviewees, and they stayed around over an hour to talk about anything we wanted. In the afternoon, I had two interviewers and a GREAT tour--the most thorough of any I'd had. Everyone was hospitable and friendly in the office of admissions. This is a truly AMAZING school, and if I should be so lucky to get accepted, I'd go in a heartbeat!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were very casual. The only thing that made one of the interviews a little more stressful than expected was that one of the interviewers was so quiet and spoke so slowly.... it was really hard to get a conversation rolling and to sense what type of impression you were making. I talked to a handful of people that also felt this way." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was a great interview experience. They have a huge hospital, great facilities and are very welcoming-the office staff in particular. You might have trouble finding the admissions office, but just ask around. Interviews are relaxed, and there is a good chance one will be with a student. No need to be nervous here though, just be confident and know their special curriculum in and out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing day. Nothing was very stressful. I feel really good about it just b/c i was really able to talk about healthcare and ethical issues that mattered to me. I also had an interview with the asst director for admissions, and that interview was definitely a bit more stressful. But he was really nice - just the questions were a bit more pointed. They really, really stress ethics and leadership at this school. I'd attend in a heartbeat if I got so lucky..." More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview was very conversational. All of the questions asked were about stuff I had written in my personal statement or in my secondary. I think they were trying really hard to put the applicants at ease and relieve some of the pressures with interviewing. The day consisted of: orientation with the dean, financial aid, lunch with med. students, tour, and then 2 30 min. interviews. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A relatively painless interview. People went out of their way to be friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Wow, Duke really sold me, and its definitely my top choice among schools of similar costs. Its a great campus with fantastic students and astounding facilities. Its not surprise so many people go there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke needs to re-evaluate how they perform regional interviews. I feel I was poorly represented by this interview, and it in no way improved my impression of Duke. I seriously am not exaggerating when I say that of the ten interviews I had, this was the worst and most puzzling." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very enjoyable conversation. I didn't feel that I was being questioned, but at the end I felt as if I got all of my points across. I was a little concerned if the fact that I had a regional interview would have a negative effect. But I was reassured by the admissions secretaries and the interviewer that it will not. We shall see. At least I didn't have to deal with all the other stressed out over-achivers (j/k)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is awesome academically but lacked a community-feel. My interviewers seemed somewhat disinterested, and although they weren't really intimidating, I got the feeling they were trying to be negative in general and on purpose. I'd go to Duke if it's the best school I get into, but I'd rather be at a lower-tier school where students are interested in knowing each other, having fun, and learning, rather than just who gets the best residency at the end of it all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Duke Med is an excellent school. The opportunity to have a third elective year to pursue research or any other endeavor is an opportunity that most med schools won't offer. Starting clinical rotations a year early is also a big plus for Duke. Certainly one of my top choices." More from this Member | Report Response

"A learning experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"I have lots of friends in the med school who answered every ? I could possibly ever have so I was extra bored. I felt the session was not as informative/engaging as it could have been for the other interviewees. Duke is such a beautiful/hi-tech/cutting edge/new/bold place and I felt they couped up us interviewees for most of the day in the dank purple zone of Hospital south w/out really showing off the best duke med has to offer.

"Day one: 2 MD interviews, 30 minutes each, one faculty and one student. Day two: 2 MD/PhD interviews, 30 minutes each, again one faculty and one student. The interviews were all low stress discussions, no real curve balls. There's so many things I liked about the interview. First, they put us up in a decent hotel, paid for airfare up to $300, paid for taxi service, took us out to a nice restaurant one night, etc... Beyond that, their cirriculum is totally cool. I like the idea of getting into the wards during second year. There is alot of misconceptions about the one year basic sciences program, but they've been put to rest in me. They have a real relaxed and down to earth attitude about alot of things, thanks to Sal, the coolest MSTP director on Earth (who is from South Philly, which probably explains it). There's alot of little things too. It's a good place to buy a house if you're into that sort of thing. Parking is not an issue like it is at so many other schools. You get $500/year from the program during the PhD phase to go to conferences. They have free drinks and candy for the students all the time. The lecture hall is sweet. Etc etc etc etc!" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was an informative day, not too stressful. interviews were conversational. started w/"tell me about yourself" and went from there. they're really big on that 3rd year research year, so be prepared for that. do NOT apply if you're not interested in research. the students seemed alright, a little high-schooly, but i only met a couple of them. i think i met like 3 students over 24 the entire day, and only one M1 over 24. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I had a wonderful experience at Duke. It is my top choice school... The technological advancements both in the hospital and in the classroom are significantly more outstanding than any other school that I have interviewed at. The campus is gorgeous and the hospital is amazing. The only reason that I put the stress level at 3 was because this is where I really want to go!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Incredible facilities and talented people, but I also felt like everyone was a little bit arrogant. A great school, but not the best fit for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very enjoyable for the most part. The Dean's introduction at the beginning was very informative, as was the financial aid session. Having a small group of interviewees (6) made the process seem more informal. The only real negative was my second interviewer's propensity for asking wild questions based on what I discussed in the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really felt that I should have been more impressed by Duke, because it truly was a great day. I love the curriculum, but somewhere in my gut just tells me it isn't a good fit for me. The financial aid is also generous, and the chapel and campus are beyond words." More from this Member | Report Response

"i was really impressed with the facilities. the whole day was extremely laid back and everyone was really nice. also, learn about the 3rd year experience before you go-they heavily emphasize it, and be prepared to ask your interviewers some questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was accepted and went to the Accepted Student weekend, where I found that I was one of the few token nontrads that they had accepted that year" More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewer was very nice and easy to talk to, but my faculty interviewer was 15 minutes late, so that interview was only 15 minutes instead of 30 (she was also late for one of the other interviewees). I was mostly asked about my research and my decision to go from graduate school to medical school. I don't really remember any specific questions that I was asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt so-so about it. I received NO feedback. But I am headed there next fall, so I must have done something right!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Student interviewer was very nice. No really hard questions from her... But the faculty interviewer asked a sring of trivia like questions, ranging from wanting me to describe a free radical mechanism to the geography questions. I was one of the only people on my interview day that got those questions, though, so I think that was more bad luck than anything." More from this Member | Report Response
