7: Personal Reflection I'm still interested in going to Duke because it is probably the most prestigious school in North Carolina. One thing that i learned was that Duke is one of the top five winningest college basketball programs in the country. The school is also great when it comes to academic excellence. My least favorite aspect about the school is that the in state cost of tuition is the same as out of state.
