What impressed you positively?

"I like the family atmosphere, and the students we met were really nice and open to our questions. The staff was nice and I could see that they really went the extra mile to help their students succeed. I liked the alliance that Meharry has with Vanderbilt. I feel like that fosters some diversity. Meharry has a BIG SISTER/BIG BROTHER program for freshman where they are paired up with current med students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We has too much free time during the day. I had two whole hours to kill. Thank goodness I'm a go-getter. I ventured out to the hospital on campus and found a med school student to talk to. They should have organized the day better in order to keep our interest. Also, I'm not too sure if I would feel comfortable living in the South...again. It's really a different world down there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that it was going to be a closed file interview- it's hard trying to tell someone EVERYTHING about yourself and your application in 30 minutes!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a positive experience. My interviewers (Dr. Burnett and Dr. Shockley) were so supportive and geniune. I recommend that anyone have those 2. They made me feel at home." Report Response
