Do I have more than a 1% chance?

<p>I would like to know if I have more than a 1% chance! Duke would be a dream for me.</p>

<p>One mistake I regret is not requesting an interview with Duke. I guess that will ruin my chances because it may be displayed as a lack of interest.</p>

<p>THAT's it.</p>

<p>I think you have a little bit more than a 1% chance. I don't know how good of a chance you have but it is probably more than 1%</p>

<p>Bump. I guess now the question should be how much of a chance? I know it is a high reach, but have you guys known anyone who has gotten in with similar stats and no hooks.?</p>

<p>I guessed that's what you meant, but I don't think anyone really knows. It will be tough for you to get in, but that doesn't mean that you won't get in.</p>

<p>I wouldn't count on acceptance...sorry, but your stats are pretty boring and I don't see anything special outside of that.</p>

<p>-Duke Class of 2010</p>

<p>Sadly, your standardized test scores are too low. Unless there is a powerful reason to consider your application after seeing those scores, it will get tossed in the reject pile. Sorry.</p>
