How did you prepare for the interview?

"sdn, school website, propaganda" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the school has a feeling of warmth and openness that i have only seen at one or two other institutions. the admissions staff, as well as seemingly the students and facutly, truly care about the community dartmouth med school fosters. everyone is very excited about working/learning there, and it results in a tight-knit community that seems to function extremely well. the research is cutting edge, and the hospital far outshines anything i've ever seen. when they say it looks like a shopping mall, they're being quite literal." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"it's in the middle of nowhere. on the one hand, this offers a beautiful rural new hampshire town with plenty of great outdoors activities. but the realy upshot of this is a very undiverse patient base. i was told 98.9 percent of the patient base is white (that's a quote). they did say there was a fair deal of economic diversity, but in the end the hospital serves a pretty homogenous catchment area." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"almost no students live on campus. that said, no one really seemed to think this had any bad effects upon their ability to all become incredibly close and work together at all hours of the night." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"my first interviewer was more excited than i was - she was great. she knew my application, but instead of simply asking me about the experiences, she really probed me about their meanings to my overall goals and life experience. she offered a very interesting and rather unique interview experience. it was much more of a conversation than an interview. the second interview was more by the book - standard questions about my research and other experiences. a bit stone-faced, but still very nice and welcoming. overall i was very at ease, as was everyone else that day (as we all sat in a big welcoming room and compared notes throughout the day). unfortunately the interviews seemed very short and you won't have a lot of time to ask questions about the school. there's an info session, and other time to talk with faculty and students though, so if you have questions there's plenty of opportunities to ask them."
