WHAT I LIKED

I enjoy feeling challenged by my peers. People here are curious and excited to learn, but also bring with them a myriad of perspectives that inform new ideas and opinions on critical issues.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The social environment here can get competitive and elitist. I'm experienced with elitism in my educational experiences, but it's not something that I would recommend. This campus doesn't feel particularly egalitarian sometimes.

WHAT I LIKED

I love Duke University for the connections and relationships I’ve formed there, with faculty and students alike. Professors are there to really help guide you, and they take the time to ensure you are successful. While it is a rigorous institution, students support each other and provide help to each other, creating strong friendships and relationships.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Because it is a competitive school, many organizations have application processes that are competitive and difficult to get into.
