What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
