What are your general comments?

"It was a well-structured day, with a lot of great information. One thing lacking was a serious discussion about the DMS cirriculum. It seems like they're kind of relying on Dartmouth's image to help sell the school, because although people in the field that I've talked to speak highly of a DMS education, the admissions officers weren't going over many specifics of their educational program. Also, the Brown-Dartmouth program sounds cool, too bad it's ending." Report Response
