What impressed you positively?

"The area. Amazing place. Dartmouth OWNS a ski lodge. The hosptial, it's a mall. Yea that's right, it's build off a mall design and it contains a small mall inside. Most impressive hosptial I've seen. There's sky lights and natural sun light in every nook and crany of the building. The students were possibly the happiest and funniest people I've ever met. You want to go back to college, go here. The faculty and secretaties make you feel like family." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, but a word of caution. 1. You NEED a car. 2. If you're not outdoorsy (fishing, hiking, running, skiiing, hunting, etc.) you will not like it here. 3. The nearest major city is Boston, which is about 1.5 hours away. 4. It gets COLD. It was 8 degrees F when I was there, but the good news is there is no wind, so it doesn't feel nearly as cold as it is. The selection process is pretty tough, ~5k applicants for 80 seats." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Didn't realize that it was THAT far north. When I drove up at night, it was pitch black, so hope your high beams work." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Most laid back interview I have ever had. Questions focused mainly talking about myself. If you can call them questions. Very conversational. My 1st interviewew wanted me to talk about lacrosse (I played in college), my research, and my summer landscaping job. Oh she also had a history degree so when talking research I had to make sure she understood what I was talking about. The second interviewer talked a little about himself, then asked about me, and then about the area." Report Response
