"Reviewing all SDN entries for Meharry, exploring EVERY link on the Meharry website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The relaxed demeanor of the interviewers, which helped me to relax. Also, the friendliness of all staff and students that I encountered, even those not participating in the interview day." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The admissions manager rudely rushed us through the day. Although most feedback listed the area as a negative, I'm used to it b/c I did my undergrad right up the street. It's really not as bad as some have said. Meharry is about serving the poor and underserved, so how can you do that if you're too put off by the place in which those people live???" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there could be anywhere between 5 and 45 minutes between my two interviews. Also, that we would only tour the dentistry building and not the whole school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a fabulous interview day! The faculty and students were very welcoming and relaxed, which made the day much more pleasant. The financial aid presentation was extremely informative. My first interview lasted only about 10 minutes, which was b/c I didn't have to pause before responding to her questions. I think it went well. There was only about 15-20 minutes before my second interview, which went exceptionally well! I already loved Meharry, but the interview day allowed me to really see myself there." Report Response
