    I decided not to pursue my secondary with Dartmouth, but I'm now re-evaluating my strategy. All 11 secondaries I've done have been with pretty elite institutions:

    OHSU (mid?)
    UCSF (mid?)
    Mayo
    Hopkins
    Case Western (interview)
    Columbia
    Harvard
    Northwestern
    University of Colorado (out of state)
    Washington U (out of state; waste of time, I know)

    . . . so I'd like to add Dartmouth if it will bring me down to earth a little bit, but not if it's just as hard to get into as Mayo or Hopkins. Your thoughts?

    Hey, if you are looking for a "safety" school, I don't think that Dartmouth can be considered as a safety school. It is part of the Ivy League and considered fairly competitive to get in.( not as competitive as Harvard but not far behind)
    I would just apply, you have nothing to lose but the application fee, they may interview you and accept you, medical school application process is a roll of dice. :)
