    Well a few things, one the repayment program is awesome. Two, I have a couple family members within a couple hours from there and nobody anywhere near MD and I would vd moving cross country to go there so that'd be kinda nice I think. Mainly, I just felt something click for me when I was there. Loved it. I never would have predicted itd be my first choice even over the school out here but...there ya go! Hard to say!

    In your account settings, you must select your current time zone. The default was way off for me too.

    Hi there, jncerny! I also applied to Hopkins (accepted to fall, as a Fuld Scholar), Penn (waitlisted), Marquette (accepted), and NYU (dead last choice, won't hear until April anyways). It's going to be a close one between Hopkins and Duke! I absolutely loved Duke, and it has been a dream of mine to go to school there for as long as I can remember. Everything about Duke and the SON is nothing short of amazing, and the loan reimbursement option is out of this world. I have not yet visited Hopkins or Baltimore, but I know JHU is an outstanding program. It's going to probably come down to that, and/or financial aid packages.

    Hi guys! I am also having the same dilemma. I got into JHU with a scholarship as well, however am still waiting on Duke. I have already help my spot at UW, but that is my last choice among the 3. I have not visited either Duke or JHU, but plan on going to visit JHU in april. For me, it comes down to the caliber of the program and while Duke does have a loan replayment program, you can also apply to the HRSA one, which a lot of my friends have done. I am just waiting to hear back from Duke and see what all my options are. I'm not going to make a decision until I have all the info in front of me, but I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one having a hard time! bah

    Anyone else obsessively checking email with the hope that they might actually surprise us and let us know something today? If Monday is their date of notification, they have to have their list compiled by now. Monday's not far off, but I am seriously exhausted from all of this anticipation!
