Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently enrolled in Duke's MSN Family Nurse Practitioner degree program with an expected graduation date of August 2019. I have completed one year of study and am so glad I chose to accept my admission off at this institution. All of my professors are personable and easily reachable by email or phone. I get a response from them within the day or the next day--this includes weekends or holiday breaks. I know that Duke will help find my clinical placements for me which is a huge relief since I have friends in other programs who have to secure their own clinical sites which is an added stress. The financial aid office always responds to my emails the same day, and I have not had trouble with my loan disbursements or having the school insurance and some other fees removed from my account for services that I do not use. My favorite class so far has been the physical assessment class which I feel has prepared me well to go into clinicals. This class not only prepares you to complete a head to toe detailed assessment, but how to write SOAP notes correctly and efficiently. I am not afraid to ask questions to my professors and classmates, and the online forums make you feel connected to the class and really let you immerse yourself in that week's knowledge.

College is a wonderful way to discover yourself in addition to learning about knowledge and how to live independently
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Ministry
Graduation Year: 2002

Duke is a wonderful school to take both the rigors of intellectual inquiry seriously and to take the Cannon seriously as well--even as it can be problematic. The culture of the school can be more challenging for non-Methodist or non-Baptist students, but I still felt well supported and encouraged.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2007

I enjoyed my experience; however, I would not make the same choice a second time. I'm an alumnus with a non-traditional path to business school. I received my MBA 10 years ago and I have yet to regain the success I had earned prior to school, plus I now have > $70,000 in loans that I'm still chipping away at. I think many of my peers have had better experiences; just consider me your cautionary tale.
