What are your general comments?

"My first interview was very informal. It was in the professor’s office. We talked for a LONG time. He told me at the start of the interview that he wanted me to tell him everything about myself I wanted him to know and that he would ask me questions when he felt necessary. This worked out very well and I was able to give him a lot of detail about my experiences. We also talked some about his research. We talked for over an hour! I was prepared for the lunch/interview with the students thanks to this site :) You eat lunch in a room with student and at first you can ask them all questions then you pair up with one student and he/she asks you some questions. At first, the group question and answer session was a bit awkward until we all warmed-up to each other. The students were very honest in their responses. I appreciated that. My second interview was with dean-type person. He basically wanted me to tell him about myself too. During our interview, he told me about the advantages of going Meharry over another school I am interviewing at. Overall, though Meharry is a VERY small school, the students can achieve big things. It appears that the support system at Meharry is really strong and all the resources for success are there. They have mini-practice boards and the student say that the professors are accessible outside of class. Every student and faculty member I met was extremely friendly and articulate.
