What impressed you positively?

"pretty much everything. the setting - this school really is in the middle of nowhere as the whole upper valley area only has a population of about 30,000; dartmouth-hitchcock medical center is a beatiful, state-of-the art teaching hospital; there is definately an emphasis on ambulatory medicine; grading scheme and curriculum also suit my tastes" Report Response

"little patient diversity. put it this way, you're not going to see many cases of sickle-cell anemia. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the hanover inn is about a 10 minute walk from the med school. if you have the money, it's the place to stay." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"DMS was everything I'd expected from my research on the school. It is a small New England medical school, to use their words. It is a rural setting, with a patient population representative of the varying socioeconomic statuses of the people living there. I had two interviewers, one a professor and one a second-year student. Both had read my file before the interview and asked questions relating to things I'd written about. Neither grilled me or did anything unpleasant; they just wanted to convserve with me and get to know me a little better. The admissions staff is very open about how the admission process works, and they're also very nice in general. In large part because of the ruralness and intamacy of the whole place, DMS is my clear-cut top choice." Report Response
