on my interview day, they said that, of the roughly seven hundred people they interview, one third are accepted, one third are waitlisted, and one third are rejected...

MSAR doesn’t make any sense. it says that they put ten to thirty people on the waitlist each year and then grant acceptances to forty people off the waitlist. wonky for sure, unless i’m misunderstanding.
Very wonky. Maybe those 2 numbers are switched somehow and they accept 10-30 of the 40 on the WL?

Just as reasonable to think it's supposed to be 40 of the 100-300. The MSAR values are clearly wrong, and I don't think much can be read in to them (where have I heard that before?).

yeah, potentially. i just think it’s kind of odd that they would have the same error on MSAR two years in a row. it noted something similar last year.

That would make more sense if they WL ~1/3 of the ~755 interviewees, but who knows.

USNWR says they interview 707, accept 278 and enroll 92. So if 1/3 (236) are accepted outright, 42 would be accepted off of the WL.

Opinions if Dartmouth could be considered a service oriented school?
Yup -- very much so. Of the 10 schools I visited, it was by far one of the most service oriented in a way that clearly shapes the curriculum / extra-curriculars but also the faculty and students (whom it chooses and also who chooses it).

No WL movement yet and it is almost end of May. Does anyone know when adcom meets next to decide on WL movements?
The FaceBook members keep growing. What does that really mean? class is maybe full which explains the no WL movement?

The majority of the new people being added on the Facebook page are current and graduating Geisel students. They are advertising rooms and supplies for sale to the incoming students.
Hope that helps!
