    Dartmouth vs. Hofstra

    Interested in a competitive specialty, and I’ve heard going to the most prestigious school will help. Haven’t received the financial aid package from Dartmouth yet, but it probably won’t be close to Hofstra. Both schools are P/F. Also have never lived in a rural setting before, but I don’t...
