We’d like to remind you that if you wish to be considered for a local Alumni Admissions Committee interview, you must submit your Common Application and Duke Writing Supplement by December 20, Duke’s priority interview deadline. The rest of your application, including the school report, transcript, teacher recommendations, and test scores may be submitted by January 2, 2014.
Alumni interviews are not required for admission, but they do provide a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about Duke and for us to learn more about you as an individual. If
you submit your application by December 20 and an Alumni Admissions Advisory Committee is active in your area, committee members will make every effort to contact you by phone or email to schedule an interview. Interviews are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited by the resources of your local interviewing committee. If you do not have an alumni interview, you may choose to submit an additional letter of recommendation to your application file.
If you have questions about the Alumni Interview process, please check our website.＋ 更多类似范文
