Duke does not do well in recruiting Califronia kids compaerd to the Ivies. Your chances are decent, particualrly since you are not from the NY, NJ, CT area.

Really? Duke's web site says that California is one of the most represented states...

Why do you think ghostman's chances are better since he's not from NY, NJ or CT? Do you think they discriminate against kids from that area or have a glut of applicants from there or what?

They have a lot of applicants from the east, so you have a slightly better chance if your from the west :D. Go Duke, only 20 more days :D .
