- Medical Student (Accepted)
I haven't received a decision from them yet, but I just withdrew my application! Good luck everyone!
They told us during the interview that Apr 1st is the real deadline even though the paper says Apr 15th. However, they said that they would still accept the forms after that date if necessary.Also, the paper describing the steps for financial aid said that the due date is April 15. Which is the real deadline?
If you look at the methodology of the research rankings, it's heavily based on research activity, which is broken down into total NIH activity and NIH activity per faculty member. Each year US News keeps upping how heavily it weights this category. Dartmouth is a small school; it's by far the smallest of the Ivies, and while other Ivy Leagues really live by the "Those who can't do, teach" motto, the faculty at Dartmouth are there because they are primarily interested in teaching. These characteristics hurt Dartmouth's rank when fed into this kind of algorithm.really random question but why do you guys think Dartmouth is ranked so low?
I think the majority of us are still in the dark unfortunately. I thought today was going to be the day.Has anyone who interviewed early in the season and not heard back yet tried calling the admissions office for an update? They told us we would hear in March and... well... it's April lol
I emailed them because I was also told March and they said that their last admissions committee meeting was yesterday and that we will know by April 15th.Has anyone who interviewed early in the season and not heard back yet tried calling the admissions office for an update?

Yea if this week was their last committee meeting why would they wait to hand out acceptances? I might be being a pessimist, but I took no news as a silent rejection today...but do you think all of the acceptances have been given out and april 15th will be only WL and R news?
I mean, probably, is my guess.but do you think all of the acceptances have been given out and april 15th will be only WL and R news?
If I get a waitlist next week I will be spicy. I’ve waiting since OctoberI mean, probably, is my guess.
Overall, hearing back about initial decisions this late is pretty unprofessional, in my opinion. We have to narrow down to 3 medical schools based on traffic rules by April 15th and a large factor that I consider is financial aid. I can't imagine that they would inform me of both my financial aid package and a potential acceptance before April 15th. And they know this, so yeah. I am assuming it is probably WL or Rs next week.
Of course, I say this with the hope that I am wrong, but you know...
