"Not to be so nervous. It really was not scary in the grand scheme of med school interviews!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really like the school and the facilities. The students I met were very positive about Dartmouth and had great things to say about it. The interview went well and was pretty straightforward. The first interviewer I was scheduled with turned out to be on vacation, so they sent over someone from admissions to interview me. She was very nice and flexible about it, so it worked out fine. I really had a good connection with the second interviewer (the surgeon in opthamology), who tried to get to know me and learn about my experiences. All in all, a very good day." Report Response
