Hi. I just received an invitation from Dartmouth and had some questions. The dates they have offered me are really inconvenient and I was wondering if anyone has had success with trying to ask for a different date, or if its not worth asking? Do they offer a student hosting program? Also, I understand that a mid-March interview is really late and the chance of getting an acceptance is a lot lower, but does anyone know if a mid-March interview would straight up be for the waitlist? I appreciate your help in advance.

I can only answer 1 of the 3, but yes, they do offer a student hosting program, and I'd highly recommend it.

Yes, they will try to accommodate your interview day request. It may be harder late in the year with fewer dates to choose. And I think that Dartmouth hands out a certain number of acceptances per month, so they probably still have their alloted number of spots left.

Their admissions office is probably the nicest I've encountered, so it's worth giving it a shot. And as far as the waitlist is concerned, the way it works is after you interview that committee gives you a "score" and go into the list of applicants ranked by that score...and they work down from the top of the list to accept and up from the bottom to reject. So if you're given a great score you go to the top of the list, and so you have a good chance of getting in (although the longer you wait to interview there are fewer open spots).
