What impressed you positively?

"the location is absolutely beautiful and stunningly luxurious for anyone that appreciates nature. oh, and the hospital is pretty amazing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the location is pretty terrible for anyone that wants to work with a patient population of any signficant diversity. something like 99% (literally) white people. many rural poor, but at their own admission, not a very interesting/diverse population. they do make efforts to have a number of off-site clinical locations (at indian reservations, in new zealand, tanzania, etc, but all in all, its still in the middle of nowhere." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"a pretty good presentation of the school. i was lucky enough to be there on a day when a rep from brown med came to discuss the brown/dartmouth program (which im applying to....but note that you can only choose one of the dms or bms/dms programs and cant apply to both.....they ask you at the end of your interview), so i learned a lot about that program. and all in all, i found the admissions people to be pretty candid and honest about the school. they were very willing to discuss their lack of a diverse patient population and other problems that other students brought up. a good day all together.
