Probably the best life experience anyone could have.Super BrilliantMath
Probably the best life experience anyone could have. Great academics with a great social life. Alumni network is great and the school administration cares about undergraduate education. Went to two other top 10 rated universities (graduate work) but nothing compared to Duke in terms of teacher involvement and overall experience. Would not consider going anywhere else, AWESOME EXPERIENCE ALL AROUND

Duke is an amazingQuite BrightUndecided
Duke is an amazing school. It will challenge you, but in a way that fosters intellectual growth. There is a great sense of community, and I wouldn't trade my Duke experience for anything.

Question
Spent a year here and transferred out.Not so bright
Spent a year here and transferred out. Best decision I've ever made. The academics were top-notch -- professors were hands-on and engaged with students. The social scene was abysmal - very dependent on fraternities/sororities and selective living groups (co-ed social groups). Social events after first semester are closed off to people not affiliated with these groups. I've spoken with independent friends who remained at Duke and many of them expressed similar sentiments. On the whole, a great experience academically, but the lack of social programming for independents was disappointing.
