    Duke University's admission difficulty is considered very hard.

    Acceptance Rate: 22 %

    89% of applicants are in the top 10% of their graduating class.

    Best Things:

    1. Cameron Crazies! (college basketball)

    2. Caring professors

    3. Duke Chapel

    4. "Gothic Wonderland" (aka the beautiful campus)

    5. Social and smart student body

    6. The pleasant weather (especially the fall)

    7. DukeEngage

    8. Reputation and alumni base

    9. Lots of undergraduate research opportunities

    10. Wireless Internet everywhere

    Worst Things:

    1. Catching the bus

    2. Greek life with high school-style cliques

    3. Some bitter kids who didn't get into Harvard

    4. Loafers and pink shorts

    5. No air conditioning in some dorms

    6. Freshman meal plan

    7. Durham isn't a vibrant college town.

    8. Administration organizing spontaneity

    9. Academic pressure

    10. Better food/healthier food options

    Duke University is an EXCELLENT university. You need to have very high ACT/SAT scores, and you need to be in the top 10% of your high school class. While academics are crucial, more is needed to be accepted into such a great university. Extracurriculars are extremely important, so play sports and be involved in many clubs. Volunteer work is equally important, so make sure you have at least 200 service hours before you submit your application.

    Best of luck :)

    There are probably tons of reasons circulating around their website, but, among other things: 1. top 10 academic ranking 2. relaxed social atmosphere not seen at other elite colleges 3. sick sports teams 4. its in North Carolina- it never gets cold 5. sick study abroad programs
