<p>Thanks, I know I am not an extremely qualified candidate or even a great one. but I think i can add a lot to Duke with my enthusiasm and I would be so thankful to get in.</p>

<p>thanks for any responses guys and best of luck to everyone waiting for tomorrow</p>

<p>To be perfectly honest here, and this is totally my opinion...</p>

<p>I think it's a reach. Your rank, while definately good, isn't spectacular. Same for your scores. We're in the same boat when it comes to SATI was a 2180. </p>

<p>Your strong points are definately your ECs...I'm liking all of those varsity sports! </p>

<p>Best of luck to you, because I'm in an almost identical boat!</p>

<p>thanks bro</p>

<p>youre really on the cusp man, its gonna be close, I wish you the best of luck, hopefully your enthusiasm for the school shown through in your "why duke?" essay</p>

<p>i think u have a great chance. ... but after reading this i realize that i have NO chance. hahaaaaaaa i think ull get in. esp if they compare me to u.</p>

<p>ah man thanks but i think you have a chance but i dont know your stats and even then i am not an admin officer. i wish you the best of luck it will be a dream come true for me so im prayingggggggggg</p>
