Ok, I've got LOADS of questions about Dartmouth. My interview seemed like it was soooo long ago (actually, it was!) I did a few searches on your school and came up with squat, so it's time to get some information on the board for prospective students! THANK YOU for your help. Why did you pick Dartmouth? How is life in Hanover? Does student government organize class socials and activities? What's there to do at night? Free time? Do you associate much with the college proper, since it's so close to the medical school? (use their gyms and libraries, watch the teams compete, mingle with non-medical students)? Do you serve all of your required rotations at either the Hitch or the VA? What opportunities do you have for away rotations? One student mentioned going out to Los Angeles. Are away rotations common? What sort of interest clubs are you involved with? What sort of opportunities are available for students the summer BEFORE their first year and the summer between their first and second years? Any summer fellowships available? Where do students typically live and how's the rent? Is Dartmouth a bad idea for someone interested in specialty XYZ? For instance, they haven't matched many for derm in these passed few years. Does that mean they haven't had many people interested in derm, or that the school simply doesn't have many research/clinical opportunities available for derm wannabes (using derm as an example. not a personal interest). Obviously, it's a rural school so it's ideal for someone thinking about rural medicine, but it doesn't seem to rule out urban med as I see a lot of their grads matching in Boston, NYC, and Los Angeles. How is Dartmouth with financial aid? (PM me if you don't feel like answering this one on the board). Do computers find their way into the curriculum? How manageable is the curriculum? Faculty-student relationships? Camaraderie between students? Well, I'm fresh out of questions and I have a million thanks for anyone who takes a stab at any of the ones I've listed.
