What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"More about the Dartmouth-brown program, I showed a little interest and they set me up with an interview with a brown rep. I didn’t want to do the program after the day, because to having to leave my classmates and be introduced into a class which many have been together for 6 years. However, admissions said it didn’t effect my consideration to the 4yr Darthmouth program." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a great time, stayed with 4 first years and they were all very cool and went out of their way to be helpful. They were interested in me and got to know me. The school is very nice too. It has caring people who believe that all of the people interviewing are great candidates. The school is rural and is in the small town of Hanover. In the town of Hanover there is also the undergrad campus of Darthmouth, and a business school. The hospital is awesome, it’s large, new, and looks like a mall/airport. The setting may be a problem for some people, but I loved it, you can do so many outdoor activities and chill out. The students play four square and basketball during their breaks/recess, similar to elementary school. It is a tight knit community which is very welcoming and loving. The interviews were relaxed and went smoothly. The interviewers wanted to get to know you and know your motivations and passions." Report Response
