Alumni Interviewing

Help build Duke’s next class

Each year, more than 4,500 alumni interview thousands of the nation’s top high-school students as part of DAA’s Alumni Admissions Advisory Committees (AAACs). Alumni interviews play a valuable role in the admissions process — both providing an opportunity for Duke to learn more about the applicant and the applicant to learn more about Duke in a way no brochure can capture.
