<p>My son will have a Duke Alum interview in about one week. He is excited as Duke is one of his ideal schools. We have a few questions and would greatly appreciate it if you could share your Duke Alum interview experiences with us. Thanks!</p>
<p>1) How long will a typical Duke interview be?
2) What are the likely questions? Will they ask a lot of questions about Duke? My son has not visited Duke yet, but plans to visit in spring break week.
3) How much does the interviewer know about the applicant? For example, if the interviewer already knows the applicant's application and accomplishments, it may not make a lot of sense to keep repeating during the interview. Any advice?
4) Will the interviewer ask what other schools he applied or intends to apply? I told my son to be honest, always. But, hopefully this will not generate any impression he is not interested in Duke, while the matter of the fact is, he is very interested in Duke. However he did apply to other schools and has got acceptance from a few safety schools with merit scholarship. We appreciate your comments and experiences.
5) Is there any dress code for this sort of Alum interview? </p>
<p>Duke interview is the very first one my son has, and we hope there will be more to come for a couple of other schools, so we like to understand the protocol. </p>
