Why Dartmouth? On my recruiting trip everyone - not just the tennis team - was extremely warm and welcoming. The students were so excited to be at Dartmouth and all the alumni I talked to were extremely positive about their Dartmouth experiences, even years after graduating! Also, Coach Dallis said he would maintain a proper balance between academics and athletics, and he has stayed true to that promise.
