<p>Of course you have a shot, but it's not guaranteed either. You should have (several) backups.</p>

<p>I'll apply to match and safety schools as well- I just want to know where I stand in terms of Duke.</p>

<p>anyone? please?</p>

<p>I think it's 50/50 ED. You have a shot ED, but have VERY strong safeties.</p>

<p>Okay thanks. I'll have a lot of matches and safeties along with a few low reaches incase Duke doesn't work out such as BC, Notre Dame, Villanova, Wake Forest, and some others</p>
