The Dartmouth Playbook: Your Guide to Admissions

Tucked away in the quaint town of Hanover, New Hampshire, Dartmouth College sits like a scholarly sage hidden in the New England wilderness. It’s like someone took an Ivy League university and disguised it as a cozy, rural retreat – the educational equivalent of Superman donning his Clark Kent glasses.

While some institutions scream their accomplishments from rooftops, Dartmouth prefers the soft-spoken approach. But don’t let the pastoral serenity fool you. This is a place where scholarly ideas flow as freely as the Connecticut River, and intellectual curiosity grows as wild as the surrounding forests. Underneath the tranquility lies a campus brimming with vibrant minds, all engaged in the quest for knowledge.


Student Population and Top Majors

Underneath Dartmouth’s flannel exterior lies a diverse student body of over 4,500 undergraduates from all corners of the globe, each contributing their own thread to the rich tapestry that is the Dartmouth community. And just as diverse as its student population are the academic interests they pursue. 

Dartmouth offers a broad range of over 40 departments and programs, leading to an even broader range of intellectual exploration.

Economics and Political Sciences and Government are two popular major choices, as many students are drawn to understanding the intricate workings of markets and public policy. Computer Science, as well, has seen a surge in popularity, in line with the tech-driven zeitgeist of our times. Biology also features prominently, with many Dartmouth students opting for a deep dive into the intricacies of life itself.

However, Dartmouth’s liberal arts curriculum ensures that no matter the major, students are encouraged to explore, to break the barriers of their chosen field, and to venture into the uncharted territories of knowledge. It’s not just about getting a degree, it’s about expanding horizons, challenging conventions, and, occasionally, getting lost in an intellectual forest or two.

Applications and Acceptances

When it comes to acceptance rates, Dartmouth plays a similar tune to its Ivy League counterparts – with an acceptance rate hovering within single digits, Dartmouth isn’t exactly throwing acceptance letters around like confetti.

The application review at Dartmouth is a holistic process, a ballet of numbers and narratives where both academic achievements and personal characteristics are given a thorough look-see. They’re not just interested in those sparkling GPAs and sky-high standardized test scores (though they do love a good number). Dartmouth wants students who are dynamic, curious, and invested in making a positive impact on their community and the world.

Yes, it’s tricky to get in, but with the right mindset and maybe a good guiding hand like IvySummit, you can certainly turn the tides in your favor. It’s not about being perfect, but about being the right fit for Dartmouth’s vibrant, ambitious, and tenacious community.


Your essay isn’t just a collection of well-strung words; it’s a window into your world. The Dartmouth Admissions Office wants to see your thought process, your passion, your spark. Your essays are your chance to go beyond the transcripts and test scores and show them who you are. Whether you’re deconstructing a complex issue or explaining your favorite movie, your voice should be as authentic as possible. But, remember, it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it. AOs appreciate an essay that showcases clear thought, engaging storytelling, and a dash of wit. 

So, flex those writing muscles, and remember: make it meaningful, make it memorable, and most importantly, make it you.
