<p>HOOK WILL COME OUT IN ESSAY
- My friend's passion is to help out people in need... He plans to write his personal paper on his devotion to habitat for humanity and tie in how his life is like building houses.. and give some details about his medical pursuits..giving concern about humanity at large..and focusing on nature of medicine</p>

<p>My friend and I would greatly appreciate any reponses. Thank you.</p>

<p>Yes, at this point. If your friend does well enough on his SATs, I think he'd be a better candidate than I was, and I got in.</p>

<p>He sounds like a great candidate to me, although he needs to make sure that his SAT and SAT IIs fall into line with the quality of the rest of his work. That's a large chunk of information that can indicate his competitiveness that he doesn't yet have.</p>

<p>Kelly, what would you consider a good ACT score for Darmouth? I'm taking two SAT II's as well (biology, and american history)--what sort of score would you recomend?</p>

<p>From their website:
