<p>Applying to Duke ED...</p>

<p>looks like a very sound application. Btw i'm a National Piano Guild auditionee myself...</p>

<p>ED makes it all so much better.</p>

<p>Your chances are alright, but your GPA is going to hurt you. It's a bit low. Also, Duke takes just the best composite. At least, that is what an adcom I emailed told me. ED helps a lot.</p>

<p>Thx for the estimations; does anyone have an example of a student that got into Duke?</p>

<p>duke/ivy level schools are a crap shoot, ive seen people w/ 1350's get in and i've also seen people w/ 1600's get rejected... they look for more than just numbers.... check out <a href="http://www.prstats.com%5B/url%5D"&gt;www.prstats.com&lt;/a> and see for yourself. i am also applying early to duke, hoping to get lucky =)</p>
