What are your general comments?

"You arrive to the admissions office, which is in the historical med school, before 9 in the morning. They had a nice warm fire, and coffee and tea available. After a thorough orientation and financial aid presentation, you take a bus over to the hospital where you have a tour and lunch with a med student. Interviews are after lunch. Some interviews are at the hospital and some are back at the main campus. There are two interviews with faculty committee members, and they may or may not have read your application. You re-group at the admissions office, and takle a short tour of the med school, and then the day is over. Be sure to check out the fitness center if that sort of thing interests you- it's beautiful. Also, stay with a student if you have the chance. Dartmouth attracts really interesting, diverse students. " Report Response
