Peer Rec.

<p>i know this seems like a dumb question, but what exactly does Dartmouth consider a "peer" does it have to be a friend your age or could it be just someone you know?</p>

<p>come on ppl...i know you're there...</p>

<p>I'm fairly certain Dartmouth wants to hear a bit about you from someone of the same age---someone who knows more than your in school persona. This should be a person who better than anyone else knows you're more than that bright mind behind your most recent analytic essay for eng. or the mathematical genius behind that proof you did a few weeks ago in calc. Your "peer" should be someone on equal footing, someone in the trenches along side you and enthusiastic to write positively about your character. In short, ask an individual who is a friend but also a classmate.</p>

<p>I got my friend to write one. I mean, she is a peer who is coincidentally my friend? I think that is best, bc she could write about you as a friend (the little quirks that u have) as well as a student (how hard u worked for a class). Okay, I pretty much repeated n8006</p>

<p>Thanks a lot for your help!</p>
