    Hey!! submitted my app a week ago!! :)

    And finally the "RD Class of 2017" threads have started!! Have been wanting to be a part of one since I joined CC!

    Anyone else submitting an arts supplement?? for photography??

    It's odd that nobody thought of making one, considering it's already January.
    Anywayy
    I'm submitting my app today! :) Kinda excited.

    I guess I'm kind of a part of this thread. I was deferred ED!

    Same! We'll see how round two goes..

    Guys, pick it up.
    Our threads are the least active, and the least enthusiastic for that matter :p

    Have your peers sent in your evaluations yet? I feeel pretty confident about mine!

    Dartmouth always seems to have the least active threads. Oh well.

    Why does Dartmouth have to have peer evaluations?

    How many peer evaluations do you have to have for Dartmouth, and do you need them for any other colleges?

    Also, what do they mean by "peer"? Just any person your age?

    Thanks!

    Wow, the person who wrote my peer evaluation is a very avid writer, and she told me she wrote a total of 4500 words for my evaluation! I do believe her when she told me that she wrote 935 words just for the first question because she writes quite small and always discusses many poits in her writings. Still thoough, that is quite a lot!

    ^ Woah!! That is a LOT!! If your friend is a really great writer who won't bore the reader, then GREAT!! If not, adcoms might not read the whole thing!! Anyway, All the Best!! :)

    @IvyLeague2020 - Its all there on the Dartmouth admissions on website!! And nope, as far as I know - no other college needs one!

    What have you guys applied for? I applied for Engineering Sciences.
    Also again -- Did anyone submit an Arts Supplement??

    Peer evaluation. >.<

    I wonder how much weight that thing has.
  • WallaceaWallacea Posts: 34Registered User Junior Member
    I know peer evaluations are needed for Davidson College as well. Do you guys know if the applicant will be penalized in any way if his/her peer eval doesn't get submitted on time (and it is out of his/her control)?
  • basketballer23basketballer23 Posts: 74Registered User Junior Member
    @rishav17. You don't apply to a specific school at Dartmouth, however selecting academic interests is a different thing and that has no bearing on what you'll end up majoring in.

    @Wallacea. I think it's best to contact the admissions office to let them know. I doubt that you will be penalized for it, seeing as it's not your fault.
  • basketballer23basketballer23 Posts: 74Registered User Junior Member
    @collegebound808 . Obviously I can't speak for the admissions office but considering they have a ton of other stuff to read too it's wayy too much. Have you gotten in touch with a Dartmouth official to discuss this?
  • rishav17rishav17 Posts: 1,237Registered User Senior Member
    @basketballer23, I know you don't apply to a specific school at Dartmouth. I did my research!! :) . You do have to specify a intended field of study though!! And I wanted to get a sense of what fellow applicants want to major in!! And find out if anyone else wants to do engineering at Dartmouth & what his/her plans are!! (Since it gives a 4yr A.B & a 5 yr B.E. unlike other colleges!!)
  • basketballer23basketballer23 Posts: 74Registered User Junior Member
    @rishav17. Hahah it's cool man.
    I just mean that whatever you list as your 'preference' does not count for much. You can even state your interest as 'Undecided'.
    Are you interested in Engineering then?
