  1. […] us for a special chat for parents this Tuesday evening at 8pm […]

  2. Great idea for chat and connecting with other parents. Garvin Maffett (Justin ’16)

  3. My son was granted admission as an incoming freshman in the fall. I am unable to participate in the chat given the time difference. ( 6 hrs, we live in Hawaii ). Is there a way to listen to the chat after is it completed?

    Mahalo ( thank you ),

  4. Wonderful idea- will be there. Janet (Jill Dayneka)

  5. We are from Hanoi, Vietnam and my daughter (Hoang Thi Tu Quyen) needs I-20 form from you to apply and obtain F-1 Visa from US Embassy here. I just want to make sure that this I-20 form will reach us safely and if possibly also in electronic format, to avoid any risk of the post service (we experienced troubles in the past). And also we will be away most likely between June 9 – 24, 2012.
    So could you arrange so as the I-20 form will arrive either before or after our absence?
    Thank you.

  7. Our Daughter Nkenna is looking forward to joining you in August, what a great idea, we’ll try and join in.

  8. I am hoping that the chat provides further insight into Dartmouth. We are deciding between another Ivy so this may help.

  9. UChicago (where my son has also been accepted) and Columbia apparently have and proudly boast about their strong core curriculum. What is Dartmouth’s equivalent?

  10. looking forward to this chat session

  11. This is a great idea, what kind of help do you offer students who might be in the middle of the pack or stumble?

  12. thank you for this chat. How do Dartmouth teachers approach to teaching, traditional(more lecture style)? theory based(more about exploring how and why things happened instead of what happened?) thank you.

  13. Thanks for this Q&A. Does Dartmouth have an open curriculum?

  14. My daughter cannot attend the planned weekend but would like to arrange a visit next week. How can she make the arrangements?

  15. The response is too slow to get useful audio.

  16. When will admitted students be tested for course placements?

  17. what % of male/females participate in frat/sorority? thank you!

  18. What are the security measures in place to protect female students on campus?

  19. We’d like to visit Dartmouth but cannot attend the April 19-21 program.
    Can you accommodate a visit for an admitted 2016 student on an alternate day (in particular for us, on Saturday April 14)?


  21. Can a student select his/her roommate? And if so, what is the process of initiating this process?

  22. You have a vibrant arts center how much do the students support the arts at dartmouth

  23. Do the undergrad students get to do research in engineering .. in which year

  24. what percent of boys are in single sex fraternities? and what percent of graduates go directly to grad school?

  25. What would you say to a student who does not have an idea of what he or she wants to study. to the student, do you find that most of your peers were focused when they came to campus

  26. If you could change anything about Dartmouth, what would it be?

  27. What’s the biggest surprise you experienced as a student or parent during 1st year? Garvin

  28. Why are my questions not being answered? First one was posted @ 8;08.

  29. Thanks for the opportunity

  30. Can you talk about the Hop Dance Ensemble and how often do they perform and do they travel?

  31. We and our daughter is excited to join the college and no more about Darthmouth. We live in Kathmandu, Nepal but daughter is currently doing IB in US

  32. Will the answers to these questions be posted where all can see the anwers? I would have asnsked some of the same questions.

  33. I was unable to attend the live chat, but I have read through all the questions. Will you be able to make the answers available to me and the other parents who could not get involved?

  34. Please remove my email address from my previous question if you can.
    I would still want to know if I could get the answers to the live chat yesterday.

  35. We are from Taiwan, and my son (Shu Lee) was received admission as an early-decision enrollment freshman for this fall (class of 2016). We are asked by Taiwan Government to provide (1) I-20 form from Dartmouth, (2) the official accepted letter of Dartmouth admission ,and(3) the tuition fee payment for Dartmouth for approval of studying abroad because of our country’s military service rules. So we just want to know when these enrollment (register) material will arrive in Taiwan or if it is possible to receive forms in electronic format, to avoid any risk of the post service .
    Thank you for your help.

  36. I tend not to leave a bunch of remarks, however i did some searching and wound up here Parents » Dartmouth Direct. And I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  37. I leave a leave a response whenever I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is a result of the sincerness displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article Parents » Dartmouth Direct. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks come across as if they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  38. I have been examinating out a few of your posts and it’s pretty clever stuff. I will definitely bookmark your website.
