What Students Are Saying

4.04 Average Rating
Classes are hard. The ten-week term moves quite fast, and midterms (in some classes all tests are called midterms) can start by the end of the second week. There are many resources if you make the effort, starting with professors who want to help and get to know their students.
Sarah from PA
Dartmouth produces many elite professors and doctors, which means that it must have great programs in teaching. From other people's past experiences, the terms go by very fast but are very difficult.
Brianna from New Hampshire
Ivy League. 'Nuff said.
Brian from Cedar Knolls, NJ
Depends on your major, but I feel like there are high expectations all around.
Current Student
The Dartmouth workload is intense, and the D Plan (a school year divided into trimesters rather than semesters) makes it such that finals and midterms come around often. However, it also allows students to focus themselves on really learning the material, since they only take 3 classes a term. The professors are amazing and accessible, and I have nothing but positive things to say about them.
'16 from ME
Since Dartmouth is on a Trimester system, we have three terms in which we take three classes each. We don't count credits we count courses. So one must take 35 courses to graduate. Classes are not too difficult since professors are super approachable and are willing to spend time to help you out, but Dartmouth does have a lengthy set of general education requirements which may make you step out of your comfort zone and challenge you.
