What impressed you positively?

"Hanover. A very pretty area, quaint and homey. The Dartmouth-Hitchock med center--I've never seen anything like it before, and I don't know how to describe it -- it's like a carpeted mall with a lot of medical professionals walking around. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Hanover. Not a whole lot to do around here. The med students talk about driving down to Boston on weekends for serious hangouts. But you have your restaurants, your movie theaters, and ski slopes nearby, so it's enough to sustain the average person." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Dartmouth-Brown program. I heard about it before the visit, but it wasn't until I talked with my host that I realized this was the option for me. Doing your clerkships in Brown will expose you to medical practice in a diverse urban setting, which clerkships Dartmouth can't offer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Orientation with about 20 other applicants. Financial aid program. Tour of Dartmouth-Hitchcock med. center led by cool med students, lunch w/ cool med students, 2 30-35 min interviews between 1 and 3. One was with an admissions staff, who was very conversational; and another with an MD, who just asked me 2 questions and then let me ask him mine. " Report Response
