<p>Do I have any chances?? or just waste of $70?</p>

<p>kinda late to be asking about Duke ED.</p>

<p>your ECs are diverse, which is good. I don't know how much mentioning the Star Craft might help, but for 2 yrs in the US, you've got a lot of stuff under your belt. </p>

<p>Your academics aren't as strong as some might have, but Duke gives a lot of weight towards good recommendations.</p>

<p>ok i will , don't worry about it, anyone else????????????</p>
