hey, i hadn't really heard much about programs like dartmouth-brown before applying - are there other programs like this one? do you have to be accepted to dartmouth before brown looks at your application?

i'm also wondering what the purpose is, exactly? it sounds like a cool idea to have the mix of two places - but are two schools really better than one? anyone here applying to this or other joint programs?

There is the UC Berkeley/UCSF Joint program

You do your preclinical years at Berkeley + a one year research based masters program, then do your rotations at UCSF (5 years total)

Basically you have to decide to apply to the Dartmouth-Brown program quickly after your interview at Dartmouth, in order to be considered. The advantage of this program is that Brown is in Providence, Rhode Island, which is a more "urban" setting (Well or so they said. To me, Chicago and NYC are Urban and Providence's not). Dartmouth is in Hanover, and is a much more rural setting.
