what to say for the "why xxx" questions? "why duke?"

IMO, if you don't know why you want to go Duke (or any other college) you shouldn't be applying there.

Just be honest - unless honesty = "prestige". If that is the case, lie horribly.

A trick: if you have a very specific area of interest, go to the website, pick out a professor in that area, and research what he's doing. Say you're interested in working with him. The same info could be in the "news" section of a college's website.

does that work, folk hero? It seems horrible and deceitful. Do admissions officers buy that?

It may work, but it isn't honest.
I guess you should just do what you feel is right.

Why are you applying there? Thats what you should write, unless you're only applying as a safety, or because its an Ivy. In which case, go with Televeis idea and lie horribly
