What are your general comments?

"First, we watched a video on the history and mission of Meharry (it has a rich heritage), then we were given a tour of the campus. The admissions director was out of the country, but we were given his cell phone number if we had additional questions. After the tour, we had to find our intervewers on our own (which I didn't like), but the interviews were very laid back and conversational. While waiting for interviews, we could sit in on a class, which was nice and different from my other interviews. At lunch, we ate with some 2nd years, who went around asking us if we have any questions, then interviewing us one on one. Overall, it was a great experience!" Report Response
