What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are impressive and high tech. There are many hospitals and research facilities right next to campus and the Duke undergrad is also within walking distance. Everything you need is at your finger tips! The people are very friendly and all the medical students that were there are amazing people!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The area doesn't have any real public transportation and you need to buy a car or drive if you get in. There is also lack of sidewalks or biking routes which leaves you with no other options but to drive. Durham is not as pretty as I wish it would be. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Duke is a wonderful place to be and study medicine. The campus is amazing and you have so much flexibility in your third year. They are very high tech and there is even wireless outside on the lawn. The interviews are conversational and if you start talking about a particular issue you just might run out of time. So make sure that you don't get carried away in one subject. Obviously, it is a number one choice and the resendency matchups are outstanding. I just wish I get in!" Report Response
