    Just received an email from Dartmouth SOM, the title reads "Geisel School of Medicine Interview Day...." I thought it was the interview day decision email, turned out to be just a feedback survey email...well played Dartmouth.

    for anyone who's interviewed here already - did any part of the interview day (or tour) require you to be outdoors? asking as a southerner who (extremely) under packed for my first interview in the Northeast! thanks!

    Yep. During the tour, we waited outside a bit for the shuttle. You may also have to go outside to go to another building for an interview.

    If I remember correctly, it was mostly just a tour of the hospital. So indoors

    There’s an optional tour at the end of the day of the Hanover campus-it was a mostly indoor tour but you do have to walk between buildings. On my interview day, it was raining and they provided everyone with umbrellas

    I don't know if this has been posted yet, but it's basically a pretty thorough overview of Dartmouth's admissions procedures. Some notes I felt were particularly interesting:

    1. An Admissions Committee Subcommittee (Chair and approximately 3 admissions officers and as needed with the assistance of experienced admission “readers”) will screen all completed applications. This subcommittee will directly invite approximately 475 candidates meeting predetermined criteria for interview. From the remaining pool of applications, approximately 1,200 applications will be selected for further review by Admissions Committee Subcommittees.

    2. Each subcommittee receives 11-12 packets of approximately 8 applications, with e-mail notification when a packet is ready for review. Each subcommittee can extend a predetermined number of invitations for interview. After review, subcommittee will record a decision to “invite”, “deny” or “hold”. Additionally, comments on the application can be recorded. A subcommittee must reach a final decision (invite or deny) on all applications marked “hold” before submission of the final decisions on applications in the packet.

    So essentially, there is a "master" subcommittee that screens all the apps (MCAT/GPA/ECs/etc) and removes all but ~1700/6800 apps. Of those, about 1/4 are directly invited to interview (probably super high stats/URM/legacy) and the rest are passed onto "minor" subcommittees in 12 batches of 8 applications. Each batch of 8 application's decisions must be submitted all together. Each committee also has a limit on the number of interview invites they can send out in total. Pretty interesting stuff and I would be surprised if most other schools didn't have something at least somewhat similar.

    I don’t recall seeing any while I was there. Most people stayed close enough to walk, ride with hosts, or rented cars if needed. How far will you be traveling?

    I used P & P Twin State Taxi. It's a one man company, but he showed up right on time and was very friendly.

    How should we send ITA requests to Dartmouth? Directly via email or upload to the portal as an “application update”?
