ED deadline is coming up! I was wondering if anyone had any insight on the Duke admissions process, specifically for Pratt engineering. I’ve heard that their admissions process is more numbers and experience-based (essays don’t weigh as much as they do for Trinity). I’m about to be done with all of my Duke essays (super happy with them), and I’m getting worried about this. I feel like I don’t have much to offer experience-wise (no internships or research) and my academic stats are pretty much on the high-end of average. I’ve also heard that for Pratt admissions, the professors actually read applications and weigh in on the decision making. Is this true? Is there any way to get a last-minute boost for my application? Or do I just turn it in and hope for the best?
These are silly questions, but I’d love to hear admissions stories from past or present Pratt students. Thanks
