I would make sure that Dartmouth EXCELS in the field that you wish to pursue. Though it is a wonderful college that helps with many different majors and minors, it would be best to make sure they have great professors in the field you wish to excel in!!! :)

Keep your grades up, remember to do extracurriculars. Also, keep in mind that you will need to ask for a peer recommendation.

If you're any of the above (interested in finance, love to party, don't mind being super isolated), this school is a good fit. Otherwise, apply elsewhere. Their application is extremely easy (no essay), so if you're comfortable dropping $90, then go ahead.
Be yourself when applying. Dartmouth values students who are very academically strong, but also are actively involved in extracurricular activities they care about. Dartmouth students tend to be personable and holistically capable.
Don't let the Greek scene intimidate you. It's really not the only thing out there, and you don't have to drink and you don't have to enjoy it. There are plenty of people who don't go out regularly or who do and don't drink. I think it's way more intimidating to prospies than to current students.

To prospective students, I'd recommend visiting campus and attending dimensions. Although I didn't make it to dimensions, many of my friends cite it as the reason that they chose to attend Dartmouth. Dartmouth students are preternaturally friendly and excited to be there, and this attitude really shows during dimensions and during first year trips.

Don't be nervous! Dartmouth is super relaxed. You will rarely ever hear people talking about their SAT scores or GPA. On your application, make sure you stand out with your essay. Since Dartmouth doesn't have any supplements, its one of the only places you can really shine.
Be yourself and get lucky - applying for these types of schools is never easy and there's a certain amount of luck involved. Don't be discouraged if you get rejected at any school, since there are plenty of worthy students that don't get in (or are wait listed); that isn't just a way of the admissions office to make you feel better.
Visit. Dartmouth is very welcoming, but the energy the student body has can get overwhelming.
