    Correction. I can imagine because that’s probably where I’ll be going this fall unless Tuck takes me off the waitlist.

  • Mick

    12 is a sham. Darden should clearly be ranked higher.

    Dear John,
    I was viewing Duke’s profile on this website last night and found a comment by you saying that you are in the process of writing an article about Duke VS Darden. I just viewed GMAT Club’s threads on the two schools head to head, and I gotta tell ya, not so much useful information there, especially compared to the smakdown articles you write. I very much appreciated the article about Northwestern VS Chicago, and I’m dying to get your two cents on Duke VS Darden. Will it be published anytime soon???
