Pratt School of Engineering accepts all AP credit. Engineering curriculum doesn't compromise liberal arts opportunities.


Downers

Quintessential college campus - everything you'll ever need is on campus. Can be a bit of a bubble. Going out into Durham/Chapel Hill for a break from campus life is really easy.


Comments

Merit-based scholarships available... fairly unique to Duke among top-tier schools. Different essay for Pratt vs. Trinity

Campus is great, but Durham's a little unsafe at night. On campus housing for freshmen and sophomores, campus apartments for upperclassmen. Variety of dining places. Plenty of community volunteering opportunities. Overall, I'm very happy with Duke.


Comments

Unique application questions, optional interview with alumni, early decision and regular decision, common application, financial aid.
