I think there will be less of us then there would be at a SHPEP site. I also wonder how roommates will be chosen. Where are you from and what college year are you?
That's true, and I'm from Illinois but I recently moved to northern Virginia! I'm also a rising Junior. What about you ?

I actually know quite a few. They all said it was a rewarding experience, so I am definitely looking forward to it.

Do you think it will be exactly like the SMDEP program?

I'm positive the only that changed is the name of the program. I also think that they might only be focusing on pre-med students because it is no longer affiliated with shpep. But then again who knows haha

when we got our arrival information under the email section it said this:
"Sometime in May you will receive your Duke University e-mail address and the URL of the [email protected] course-site. The course-site opens to a bulletin board. Check the bulletin board for announcements before departing for Durham." but I never got email with the URL/access to the course site

I land a little before 1:00, and i'm excited to make connections as well! I feel like what we do once we get to the airport aren't really explicit instructions yet.
