It was really crowded since it was spring break. Students from all over the country. The admissions officer talked more in detail about the admissions process, a little more info than on the website. [View Full Report]

The admissions officer was very friendly and courteous. The informational PowerPoint was thorough, however no new information was really given that couldn't be found on the website. [View Full Report]

Very informative. The guy was a great speaker. I was surprised to find that Duke didn't have many opportunities for merit based scholarships. [View Full Report]

It was very helpful, and the speaker was both jovial and informative with just the right amount of comic relief. [View Full Report]

I attended Blue Devil Days (program for admitted students)... there were many presentations on academics, housing, Duke ENGAGE, Duke Focus, and career services/advising. [View Full Report]

The presenter was a recent graduate from Duke, and was really funny. There was so many freaking people there, but I was one of the few seniors (tee hee hee). [View Full Report]

it was good...and it was interesting to learn about their lemur center! It was a turnoff though when the guy said that legacy played a big role in admissions :( [View Full Report]

They really did a great job with the information session. Lots of information that you won't get by going on the website. [View Full Report]

The information session took place in the auditorium in the beautiful Admissions House. The Admissions Officer was warm and comforting. They showed a video and the session was very informational. [View Full Report]

The info session was informative and the admissions officer tried to stress what made Duke unique, but it sounded very similar to the talks at many other schools. [View Full Report]

Again, professors and staff made me feel very welcome. They even had a few student groups, like the Duke Improv, do some entertaining pieces for us. [View Full Report]

It was packed when I went in April (over spring break). The admissions officer was friendly and informative, but not very candid. She acted more like a PR person for the school. [View Full Report]

By far the best information session I have attended at any school. The admissions officer that led it was very insightful and knowledgeable and, at least for me, generated a feeling of excitement about the school. [View Full Report]
