If you are minority than you have a good shot, but if you are either Asian, White, or a Jew, you need better scores. You also don't have many EC so, try to win something. As it stands Duke is the #6 school in the country according to U.S. News and World Reports. If you want a decent chance you really should raise your scores or right a really wicked essay.

The fact he's a National Hispanic Scholar leads me to believe that he's not any of those things, even though I don't agree with your assessment of his stats. Kid in my class got into Duke and he's def not in the top 10, but may be in the top 10%, i dunno, but he definitely doesn't have ridiculously high scores. Just write a bangin' essay and hope for the best!

A white person would never get in with those stats, but a hispanic might on a good year.

That's such crap because i know a white person who got in with lower stats.

No, a Hispanic person wouldn't get in with those. They have a lot of minorities to choose from :p
You have a chance, but so does everyone.
