Equipped with valuable resources that will help reach your goals.
Duke is a wonderful place to learn from the best, among the best. If you really take advantage of the opportunities it gives you, it's a fantastic investment in your future. If you're a loner and don't make connections, then it's not the place for you.
I like to refer to Duke University as an institution of excellence. It attracts greatness and is a huge part of my success in both my business and personal lives. I highly recommend that any prospective college applicant consider Duke University.
Duke is amazing, if you take advantages of the opportunities it offers. It's in a great area, with talented and caring faculty. It also has a fun culture, with basketball and football teams that are fun to watch. If you go to Duke, you have to tent in K-Ville at least once. It's the best time I ever had.
The breadth of educational opportunities at Duke is immense. You will be exposed to engaging and challenging courses, intelligent and well-educated classmates, and have many, many opportunities to explore your intellectual interests through forums, symposiums, clubs, relationships with professors, and work opportunities. Living in the Duke community is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
I started Duke under a pre-med route with the intentions to major in Biology and become a doctor after medical school. If you are interested in becoming a doctor, do not apply to Duke--go to UNC. If you are interested in becoming a researcher, then Duke is the perfect place for you. The pre-med and science curriculum at Duke does not center around hands-on experience but centers itself around lab experiments and scientific writing. As an undergraduate senior, I have now decided to switch over into Political Science in the hopes that I can work with people instead of lab equipment.
