Both the Common Application and the Coalition Application include a one-page personal essay. In addition, both include two short essay questions that are specific to Duke and that offer you the opportunity to share your unique interests and perspective. One of the short essay questions is required, and the other is optional--and yes, it is truly optional! You can submit your short writing with or after the other student portions of the application, no later than the application deadline.
Prior to the anticipated date of enrollment at Duke, students should have completed an academic program that would enable them to enroll at a university in their home countries. For example, students from British or British-based education systems should have completed their A-levels before enrollment, and students from the French or German education systems should complete the Baccalaureate or Abitur. For most students, this means that they will begin the application process during their final year of study in a pre-university program.

In her Duke application, Busi wrote: “I am going to university as a symbol of hope to my community that anything is possible. I carry the hopes of my mother who only completed grade seven in school. I carry the dreams of my grandfather who didn’t even have that basic education. Foremost I carry my community’s yearning for someone to make a significant change, someone to break the cycle of poverty.”
