Geisel medical school sees enrollment jump

HANOVER — Applications to the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College for the 2014 entering class went up 27 percent compared to the previous year, the medical school announced Wednesday.

The increase of 1,104 complete secondary applications means Geisel has 5,241 prospective students to choose from, an all-time high for the medical school and more than three times the national average. These applicants are vying for fewer than 90 seats this year.

"The larger applicant pool presents a very talented and diverse range of applicants to Geisel, making our job in admissions even more challenging. It certainly will make the process even more selective and competitive this year," Aileen Panitz, assistant director of admissions at Geisel, said in the announcement Wednesday.
The nation's fourth oldest medical school, Dartmouth Medical School was founded in 1797.

In 2012 the school was renamed in honor of children's author and illustrator and 1925 Dartmouth College graduate Theodor "Ted" Geisel, better known by his nom de plume Dr. Seuss.
