    Double Dukies!

    I just found out I'm going to be one, and in my excitement at spending several more years at my favorite place, I thought I'd see who else is in the club. Anyone?

    Congratulations on your 2nd acceptance! For what school/degree?

    Yo yo yo yo. BA/PhD.

    Also, let me speak up for Viking Guy (1998/2007), who doesn't check the site much lately.

    By virtue of my MA (NCSU 2000), I am also what is often referred to as a MooDukie, although I think most of us are Veterinarians or non-BME engineers.

    I should stress that I'm probably the single flukiest Double Dukie ever. I got in the first time, I'm convinced, because I was an early decision alumni kid (albeit with low/next to no donation history), and the second due to having friends in high places in departments.

    P.S. If I have a double-major, is that still a single degree? I didn't get a diploma from Trinity for my CS major (EE was my primary major), so I'm guessing I don't also have a B.S.

    I tried, but Duke wouldn't have me... Banana Slug instead.

    Thumbs up Congratulations!!

    How wonderful to be a Double Dukie! Kudos to you!!

    My son-in-law is a Double Dukie (...if majors in Electrical Engineering and Economics count). My daughter is also a Double Dukie (...if majors in Political Science and History count). They are both attorneys.

    However, their maid-of-honor and best man are still at Duke working toward their Double Dukies. Heather (an MD/PHD fellow), and Chris almost finished with his Masters/Dr. (whatever...?) in Biomedical Engineering. I am in awe of them all. GO DUKE. The Duke 'family' has no rival.

    I always say it was just that Duke was the best law school I got into, but there may have been a bit of bias in my decision to come back.

    I turned down an equally-ranked Ivy League school to come back. Let's just say I will not face Greybeard-esque inner conflicts when the two teams meet (not that I would have ever cheered against Duke, either way).

    Oh well. Santa Cruz is prettier than Durham, anyway.
