"It was cool getting in. I was pretty excited to be going to Dartmouth.
I visited the campus the summer after my sophomore year while my family was on a trip up to Maine and I found the campus to be really pretty and the Hanover to be pretty cool. So it was definitely cool to get in."
"You have to really know why your want to be there. When doing the application, it was really easy for me to write about why I wanted to go to Dartmouth because I had a super clear idea of what it would help me do with my life.
The thing I see with some other people when they're applying to schools is that they don't really know what they want to do with their lives and because they don't really have a target to aim for, they have no idea how they schools they are applying to will help them get to where they want to go.
If there's anything I would give as advice, I'd say that people should take the time in their junior year to sketch out a vision for their life and future and then find out schools which align with that vision. Either you'll find out that the schools you wanted to go to aren't in line with that vision, then will have to adjust, or, you will find out that they are and will hav a clear idea on how to express who you are, what you want to get from your experience at that school, and what you could offer the school in return."
