I just had an interview granted last week and opted for a regional interview...do the admissions committee look down upon this request? Advice from current Dukies would be appreciated. I have not yet visited Duke, but from what i've heard and read, i think it's one of my top choices. I opted for the regional because the interview is pretty late (not sure if they have already accepted the majority of their students) and am not sure of my chances of admission. Also, how do you PM someone...do you need permission?
