Congrats! That's awesome. What a great way to start off your cycle.
Just curious, did you send in a Duke-specific PS? I'm so tempted to just send in my general PS but they clearly state that the PS should convey why I'm applying to Duke so I'm just trying to decide how much I need to modify my PS...maybe I'll just end the essay with "I love Duke". Bleh, I'm so PS'ed out
I'm not sure exactly what you mean. This is what Duke's instructions say about the PS:
"Personal Statement: You are required to submit a personal statement. If you apply via LSAC, use the electronic attachment. The statement is your opportunity to introduce yourself to the admissions decision maker and should include (1) what you think have been your significant personal experiences beyond what may be reflected in your academic transcripts and on your résumé, and (2) your personal and career ambitions. There is no required length."
Where does it "clearly state" that you should convey why you are applying to Duke?
