My S, prone ordinarily to talking a lot about college basketball, has been nurturing another enthusiasm recently. He has always liked creatures, and the ocean, and gradually seems to be becoming more and more convinced that he wants to do marine/tropical biology. We've been looking, at his behest, for an academic summer program, since he had such a good time at CTY last year. A catalogue came in the mail for Duke TIP, and lo and behold it has not one but two tropical biology field sessions. As he said, it's just what he was looking for, as in, to the T what he was looking for, as in he would love, really love, to go.
So does anyone know how competitive admission is? His stats are GPA UW 3.9 including an A in the first semester of AP Physics BC this year. PSAT was CR78 M76 CW75. Should have a pretty good recommendation. I guess I'm asking you to "chance" him for this program:).
Thank you in advance for the excellent advice I am sure I will get...
