What are your general comments?

"Very pleasant experience overall. I travelled all the way from Winnipeg to Nasville for the interview, but suprisingly I didn't feel stressed at all. The admissions staff were very nice and put everyone at ease in the begining when we got there. Each applicant had a different schedule depending on what time their particular interviews were supposed to be. Everyone had lunch at the same time with 3 first year and 1 second year med student. This gave each of us the opportunity to ask them unique questions, and get the answers from the student perspective. We got to know how life was like on Campus, what parts of the city to live in e.t.c There was lot of time in between the interviews; this was useful for me because I could explore the college on my own, I didn't even get to see everything that sparked my interested. My fellow interviewees were really nice people and this heightened the great experience. I got to meet people from all over the states and made some friends. I'd definitely recommend Meharry to any prospective medical student. And hey, it is a HBC too. " Report Response
