    Oh, and also, before I send my essay out to anyone. I wanted to know what exactly the question means.

    "If you are applying to Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, please discuss why you consider Duke a good match for you. Is there something in particular at Duke that attracts you? Please limit your response to one or two paragraphs."

    Does this mean they want me to talk about all aspects of DUKE or just Trinity College? I was kind of confused when I read the question again.. thanks!

    Good question. The way I interpreted the question was simply "Why do you fit Duke?" I applied ED and that's what I wrote for my essay. When I had the interview, the first question my interviewer asked was "Why did you choose Duke as your first choice?" I think for Trinity, it could be pretty general. But for Pratt, it probably has to be more specific. Hope that helps!

    yeah I had the same question when doing mine...but I sort of took it as Duke as a whole, but focused on a few engineering things I wanted to do. Good luck!

    Crap, well I guess I should rewrite this a little to include Duke as a whole.

    Still, any readers?

    I'd be willing to read it sometime this weekend. But I'm a '09-er who applied ED. I understand if you don't want me to read it :)
