I'll be at Dartmouth this July as well...I just decided, though, so I'm way behind in the game. Any advice on where to live/look for housing? or just advice in general? :)

i want to pursue a career in medicine where I can also get involved with leadership and research in health care delivery. so thats why i'm doing this. didn't get into md/mph this year, so i'm just applying mph. i have one mph acceptance, but i was wondering if dartmouth would consider me at this point...

I was accepted and I'm trying to decide right now. What made you choose? I'm making the decision between Dartmouth and Tufts.

I just dropped my decisions for both Dartmouth and BU in the mail (accepted BU's offer, declined Dartmouth's offer). Hope I made the right decision. At one point Dartmouth was my top choice, but after thinking it over, the BU curriculum seems to be more aligned with my interests. I was also concerned about the ASPH accreditation thing.

I was surprised to get accepted to Dartmouth when my application wasn't complete until so late--my application didn't get sent to committee until March due to a missing LOR.

It took them 3 weeks to review my application and get back with me. They send you an e-mail first, followed by a snail mail package. You can also check your status on the online application (several times a day, if you'd like....lol). Good luck :)

Same for me.

I decided early this week I'm heading to Dartmouth in July, now I just need to find a place to live. Any help there would be great!
