What impressed you positively?

"The school, staff, and surrounding culture. Nashville is a lively and safe city to be at. I'm a Californian and I don't typically like being out of my state because I'm spoiled with good weather but Nashville, TN has this special something about it. I could definitely see myself moving to Nashville, TN--which is a new sentiment I thought I'd never come around to saying about any location outside of California." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Probably just the cold weather but my excuse is that I'm from the spoiled California weather. In the spring and summer, I hear Nashville heats up so the temporary cold weather is something I can overlook." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How nice the people there are and haha apparently how scary Memphis, TN is." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview is a "closed" interview where the interviewers are given some information about your involvements you had written down in your application. They however are not given your grades and pcat score. From there, they just converse and try to get to know you. The interview is chill but just prepare your interview answers ahead of time. If you did bad in school and they ask you about it, focus on what you've done to overcome your past obstacles. From there, if they are comfortable with how well you could possible do academically at their school, they start asking more questions to get to know you--at least that's what they did with me."
