At an Ivy League school, a certain amount of healthy competition is expected. In high school, we fought to make our way to the top. Fought to get the best grades, be in the most extra curricular activities, excel at our chosen sport, artistic medium, musical instrument, volunteer position, insert interest here. We worked as hard as we could to one day get that golden ticket to the promised land. In the world of high school and college admissions, we were the fittest (humbly, of course). But what happens after? What happens after you worked, you fought, you survived? Getting in is just the beginning. Surviving Dartmouth is a whole other challenge. Each week feels like a sprint, each term a marathon. From all-nighters to rushed Novack lunches to crowded networking events, one can feel less like a student and more like a runner in a seemingly never-ending race. And beyond the pressure cooker of Dartmouth, there exists an entirely new playing field. Immediately after graducation, you’re set back to square number one. This is the game of life. This week the Mirror explores the different ways we fight and survive at Dartmouth. Survival is necessary, but hopefully you’ll come out on top.
