Got my scholarship letter!
Very happy and will definitely be attending ASW to check Duke out.
It's SOOOOOOO gorgeous!!!! I already visited since I have to go to another ASW that weekend, but the campus is amazing and the law school building was very nice. Plus the faculty and administration there were really helpful. Instead of doing the whole "we're better than the other schools/let's put on a parade to make ourselves look as great as possible" they were completely honest in outlining what qualities Duke has and then what type of people would and would not appreciate those qualities. It was such a great trip, and that's when I really started liking Duke.
I'll be going to ASW at Duke, but just curious if you could give me a recap of what they said about what type of people would and not appreciate the qualities of Duke.
Since it's a really small class size they have a really great law school community. Plus the school puts on a ton of programming, so it seems like students are at the law school a lot of the time. They told me that people who don't want everyone to know who they are and all their business probably won't like it as much there, just because it's really easy to at least recognize most other students. And they said if you want a clear cut boundary between law school and your personal/home life, since the students do so much with the law school and they said the people who seem to be the least happy are the ones who take the least advantage of all it has to offer. Other than that, some bigger city people have trouble adjusting to the smaller size of Durham. But that just matters on the person, since others probably handle it just fine.
