“My family and I have put a lot of thought and consideration into this decision.  We are convinced that Duke, DCID and Durham are the best alternatives for us. I would like to sincerely and profoundly thank you for all your guidance in this process. For me it has been very helpful – every detail you have provided about the program as well as every conversation you have arranged for me.  It has given me a strong sense of how the atmosphere at Duke and DCID must be, we feel very comfortable and welcome and this has been an important variable that we took into consideration when making our decision. I am really excited and looking forward to meeting you in a few months.”  – 2018 Admitted Fellow
