Which school is better overall, Duke or Stanford? (They are equally ranked in U.S. News.) I just wanted to get different people's opinions... thanks!

Depends on the program.

By duke! on Monday, December 16, 2002 - 01:19 am: Edit

duke...stanford may be more prestigious among high school students but if you plan to go to graduate school duke is more respected among grad school admissions commitees

Oh by the way in at Duke ED so I might be a bit bias

Duke is a backup school for Stanford, so Stanford

By Liz (Liz) on Monday, December 16, 2002 - 09:46 am: Edit

Depends. Stanford beats Duke in Engineering, Duke beats Stanford in pre-med type stuff, and so on. Personally, I like Duke better, but maybe it's just cause I'm on the east coast.

Stanford is better, based on the Laissez-Faire ranking

By closetcommie on Monday, December 23, 2002 - 01:14 am: Edit

neither, they only serve to promote the Bourgeoisie. What would Mr. Marx say to all you IVY league supporters? I'm sure he would turn in his grave to learn of this capitalistic system of college admissions and elitism. Death to both Stanford and Duke. Death to the infidel!

By I wont get into Stanford on Monday, December 23, 2002 - 04:39 am: Edit

Duke and Stanford are both ranked 4th in the US News & World Report University Rankings, but I would say Stanford.

By Gregon on Monday, December 23, 2002 - 09:47 am: Edit

Stanford - almost an ivy but on wrong coast.

By hustla on Monday, December 23, 2002 - 11:31 am: Edit

commies are too idealistic

Stanford

By bleh on Friday, January 03, 2003 - 07:51 pm: Edit

you are NOT going to get lynched at duke, "eh"! Come on!

And, to the op, depends on which school is a better fit for you. The question is moot. You're not going to lose either way.

By yo on Saturday, January 04, 2003 - 12:21 pm: Edit

they both have beautiful campuses, they both have great weather, they are both great schools...however, i would DEFINITELY choose stanford

By dogboy on Saturday, January 04, 2003 - 12:33 pm: Edit

Duke gots super hot southern belles, it is definatley better than stanford in my opinion. I live in the norhteast and dont really like to fly, so Duke is also more convenient for me.
