What are your general comments?

"We met at 9 in the morning at the admissions office for a (long) talk about the Dartmouth program, the Dartmouth-Brown program, and financial aid stuff. Then it was off to the hospital via shuttle to get our tour by a fourth-year student who snagged a couple classmates to join us for lunch. They were very helpful in telling both the positives and drawbacks of the school (location and isolation) as well as giving a bit of insight into our interviewers. Then it was wander around a bit before the interviews with a free half hour between. Afterwards a bunch of us caught the shuttle back to the admissions office and got a tour by a first or second year. Finished up around 4:30. " Report Response
