Dartmouth Class of 2011 ED Thread

<p>Hey everybody. I figured I'd get this started since we're down to the last month before the ED deadline. If you're applying ED to Dartmouth, introduce yourself. Please let's not turn this into a chances or stats thread. We could also use this as our countdown to 12/15. Good luck to everybody!</p>

<p>hi..Perhaps you wanna introduce yourself first?:P..haha, i'm most likely going to apply ED to Dartmouth unless there is something happen that is out of my control..Btw, the 11/1 deadline is for the materials to reach the admission office or is it the postmark deadline?</p>

<p>I'm 99.9% sure 11/1 is the postmark deadline. But I'm not quite sure because I sent in all my stuff (except my teacher recs, which are ready today!) a few weeks ago just to be safe.</p>

<p>Is anybody else not going to have SAT IIs for the admissions committee to consider? I'm not taking mine until December (I live in the middle of absolute nowhere and it's the first time I'll be able to take them), and I'm hoping it won't be a problem. I mean, if they discriminated against people who didn't have SAT IIs done yet, they would've made the deadline for having them completed November instead of January.</p>

<p>Anyway, to introduce myself... I'm Liz. In my spare time I like to listen to the Smiths (actually, not spare time--ALL the time), see Hamlet in Chicago with former teachers instead of going to Homecoming, and teach myself Russian. On the weekends, I blow up balloons for $6.50/hour at Party City.</p>

<p>Most likely I'll be double majoring in Biology and Russian language & literature, and if all goes well I'll go to medical school and become a doctor. That's about it. I've been in a perpetual state of nervousness since I sent in my pre-app in early August, and I don't think I'll be relieved of that nervousness until mid-December.</p>

<p>Haha, sorry I wasnt so clear. 11/1 is the postmark deadline for all application materials, and we can count down to the 12/15 decision date. Anyway, I'm Joe from Westchester County, NY. I go to a public high school, and Dartmouth is my dream school. I'm looking to study pre-med, with a major in either physics or economics.</p>

<p>hey everyone, I'm applying Ed as well. I know everyone says this, but you guys will understand better than anyone that Dartmouth is my dream school. sigh, everything about it is fabulous! but anyway, I'm dee from central new jersey and I go to a public high school. well, i want to be an english major and then maybe go into premed. still tryin to decide on that one. yup, my favorite show is grey's anatomy and right now i'm totally obsessed with journey (i go thru strange obsessions every week). i say we make this fun and ask a random question for the next person who posts to answer. so here's mine: if you were a fruit, which one would you be? (random enough?)</p>

<li>a kiwi. i'd be green and fuzzy all over.
Hi everybody. I'm a student attending high school outside the U.S., and I sent in my Dartmouth pre-application a week ago so I guess there's no turning back. My brother is a Dartmouth student and seeing him be so happy for the past two years has ruined me for any other college. I haven't decided on a major yet but business looks interesting... I hope all of us EDers will be able to meet each other on campus next year, good luck to all of us, heh.

<p>I am in love with dartmouth and I would really appreciate what you guys have to say with regards to what my chances are and how i can improve them. Thanks a bunch guys!</p>

<p>dox, this was supposed to be more of a "hi, how ya doin" thread instead of a chances thread.</p>

<p>dox, i dont think what any of us have to tell you about chances would be very valid because all of us are trying to get in as well, and aren't really sure what the admissions officers look for. try posting in a seperate thread to get other feedback.
oh and to answer the question above, i would wear a yellow skirt with a purple top. so here is my question for the next person: Who (or what) do you think you were in your past life?</p>

<p>hi .... nice 2 meet all u fellow EDers ....
I am Kumar... from India ... I was born in the US but have lived most of my life in India.... I go to an Indian high school ...
If admitted I will be majoring in engineering sciences and maybe pick up a minor in economics....
When I was a kid we used to play this game in which u take some ink on a paper and fold it twice and then put it on ur neck for some time... then take it off and try to see a shape in the blotch of the ink ... the shape was supposed to represent what u were in ur past life.... Well i was pretty young at that time and most of the times i could make out the shape to be an animal....a cow or something... lol</p>

<p>I don't think many of us are capable of answering if somebody gets in or not, let's leavy that to the almighty admission officers...

<p>oh and my question ... if you could choose to have a vacation at any one spot in the world what where it be and why...</p>

<p>I wanna go to NYC with my parents coz Im studying overseas..I'm an international student and like I had said above..I'm applying ED this year:)..Hope to be able to get in coz the more i research about the school, the more I'm in love with it.</p>

<p>oh, my question: What do you want to change about you and why?</p>

<p>hmm i would probably change my bad spending habits. i need to learn to be more frugal. if you could be any one literary character, who would you be and why? (sorry, but a wannabe english major had to ask this question!)</p>

<p>Id be Hobbes from the Watterson comics. Man that strip was sweet. hobbes is so wise and all-knowing.<br>
- What's your favorite smell and why?</p>

<p>Ah, applying early decision i think. Check my chances thread. if you want to that is.</p>

<p>im applying ED wish me luck!!</p>

<p>im applying ED i just sent my app in last night. i visited there last weekend and had an amazing time. its such a fun place! anyways my name is ali and im from central jersey. i play field hockey and lacrosse and i want to major in psychology and maybe minor in economics. mysticpizza--im also really into journey right now..i had tickets to see them with def leppard in holmdel this september but had to give them up cause of homecoming. my favorite smell is the smell of old spice deodorant and also the smell of suntanlotion/cocunuts. good luck everyone!... for the next person: what is your all-time favorite song?</p>

<p>hmm my all time favorite song... thats too hard, i'm going to be lame and not answer that.
