Jul 19 2014PreMed and Medical
Attending Duke is probably the best decision I have ever made in my life
ACT: 33 SAT: 2120 Female
Jun 14 2014Engineering Department
Had a high SAT score (1570 CR+M/2370 CR+M+W) and high GPA (3.99 unweighted, top 5 in class), did things I enjoyed in high school, and wrote meaningful essays. Getting to know my teachers and councilors well, coming from a large public school, really helped with my recommendations. It's important to avoid generic recommendations. Also, being a female engineer certainly helped!
SAT: 1570 Female

Be passionate. Get good grades and test scores (I had a 3.99 from a lower-medium quality public high school and got a 35 on the ACT exam). Visit - if you visit, I can't see how you wouldn't want to go here.
ACT: 35 Female
