What are your general comments?

"great! very relaxing day, met a lot of great people who were there being interviewed as well. really try to get to know the other people who are interviewing with you because they might be your classmate and they might have some good insight into schools where they have already interviewed and you are about to interview. Dartmouth does a great job of selling itself as a collaborative and competition-free school. " Report Response
