    Okay I got a bit of a problem. How do I get to Dartmouth. I have to fly in from California, so which airport do I fly to. Lebanon isn't an option because no one services it. I checked on Manchester and it is about 75 miles away from Hanover. Anyone have any useful tips?


    thanks all

    I flew into Boston and got a rental car.

    You could fly into Manchester and take the Vermont Transit bus to White River Jct or Hanover. They have a website with all the arrival/departure times and locations.

    It was cheaper for me to fly into Boston and get a rental car rather than fly into Manchester and take the bus, but I think that depends on your departure point so it might be different for you.

    Alta, we talked about this. Take Southwest to Manchester and rent a car. This will be cheaper and shorter than your other options (Boston, Lebanon). If you fly to Boston, there is a 'dartmouth shuttle' that isn't too pricey. But it doesn't run that often - you'd have to check. I seriously recommend Manchester. But I already told you that. :)

    I flew from Cali to Manchester then took the bus up to Hanover. The bus doesn't take too long and it's cheap. Check it out.

    If you fly into Boston you would want to check out this website for the bus to Dartmouth, it is about 2.5-3 hrs:

    <a href="http://www.concordtrailways.com/dartmouth_coach.htm" target="_blank">http://www.concordtrailways.com/dartmouth_coach.htm</a>

    Or if you fly into Manchester, it is about 1.5 hrs:

    <a href="http://www.vermonttransit.com" target="_blank">http://www.vermonttransit.com</a>


    Dartmouth is an excellent, beautiful school but yes, we are in the middle of nowhere. (I am there for undergrad now)

    You can fly into Hartford, CT. It is about a 2-2.5hr drive north straight up the interstate.

    They are used to the snow here and so clean up the rooms pretty good, so I would say you it shouldn't be that bad. Do you have any experience driving in snow?

    Altaskier - I just wanted to wish you luck on the interview. I know you've been preparing for it for a while. ;) It hasn't snowed much in NH this winter, and while I think they are getting some snow in the next week or so, you should be OK to drive. It's 80 miles from Manchester, but in New England (my former home) you drive 80 on any paved road, so it shouldn't take you too long to get to Hanover. Be safe and have a good day! Dartmouth is really cool and if you like skiing as much as your screen name suggests, you'll love the surrounding areas!

    I'm glad I found this board, otherwise I'd be so lost when I go to the interview!

    One question, no one mentioned Greyhound. I live in New Haven, CT, and there's a greyhound going to Hanover. It takes 8 hours and costs $90 round trip. What are your thoughts?
