Anyone have current updates for these cutoffs? Duke's page now says that the cutoff for IMGs is 225, for example.

Duke is an incredibly competitive interview to get for AMGs. Usually 240+. I would imagine the IMG cutoff was actually much higher than that.

I would not say that a 240+ is required to interview at Duke. It is competitive (and an incredible program), but people are interviewed in the 225-240 range.
