How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I can only really speak towards Duke but I would say it's likely better because there is no shortage of opportunity to get experience while at the school. There are two hospitals in the city run by the University. Additionally there are more specialized clinics (Dermatology, Dentistry, etc.) all across Durham. The campus is within walking distance to the Duke hospital district. I can't speak to the education, but there will be many opportunities that will help you apply to medical school.
So med school comes down to opportunities and preparation. CP said that duke has better opportunities but that’s not by much. Also it comes down to preference becuase what is the point of going to duke if you hate it and vice versa. You may love St Louis or love Raliegh-Durham or you may despise R-D and pick StLouis instead. Also cost distance/location may impact your feelings. As I’m not you you’ll need to ponder what you like.
Also both are highly selective so if you like both apply to both.
Hope this helps and comment if you need clarification.
