“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.
Duke sucks! It is full of smart arrogant rich Latino's & Asians!! Don't come here unless you want to keep hearing how rich they are back home, and the homes they live in, or how they were prom queen/king.
