Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

Yes

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

As a walk-on (first as a heavyweight, then as a lightweight) with absolutely no rowing experience, rowing was a massive part of my Dartmouth experience. Friendships, competition, school spirit, alumni support, ALL spring from rowing. Where else can someone who just wants to work hard, and with little or no athletic-prowess, walk on to a division 1 support, and compete at the highest levels. A truly life changing experience.
