What's the one best thing about Duke?

<p>To Duke students or alumni, what is the best thing about Duke that attracted you to the school. What is that one best aspect that you could talk for hours about Duke. I want to know the student side of the story not found on those pretty brochures. Thanks!</p>

<p>I would urge you to find this out for yourself... especially if you're doing this just for the "Why ___" essay. I saw you posted the same thing in the Northwestern and Williams forum.</p>

<p>I already tried and turned up nothing besides the online brochures and school site. Thats why I came to cc for inputs...I wouldn't have posted here if the info were widely publicized. Believe it or not, I'm trying to compare colleges and not just blindly using the info for the "why" essay.</p>

<p>college hoops baby</p>

<p>...but really the best (IMO) balance between social life and academic/intellectual endeavors in the top 10</p>

<p>is it true that Duke is rlly cutthroat</p>
