At the school
"describe the role of the catalytic triad in serine proteases... just kidding... why medicine?"
"other stuff off my amcas and 2ndary apps"
"how to cope with a confidentiality issue if/when i thought i needed to spill the beans to someone"
"what will your role be in the class of 2005?"
"read over app, 2ndary. duke has a lot of mtl on their web site, which i read over"
"students seemed very happy. interesting cirriculum. pass w/honors/pass/fail grading system. research opportunites"
"nothing negative stood out."
"students are heavily involved. there are students on the admissions committee and on the curriculum committee. not so much "wish" i knew, but didn't know until i got there"
"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"
