What are your general comments?

"I thought it went really well. Honestly, after reading such negative things in other posts regarding Meharry, I went in with a negative attitude. Considering I'm not a minority, I thought I'd be treated differently. However,that was not the case. Everyone was very kind. Meharry may not be the richest or most affluent school in the U.S. but take it from a person who has been around, they are a damn good school. They are starting to use problem based learning and the student body is small and (from my observation) very close knit. And from the student's own mouths, the people who don't do well there chose not to do well. The interviewers asked me questions about me and they wanted to know how I would positively add to the legacy of medicine. Other schools I've interviewd at haven't asked questions so profound. So, for all those who have dogged Meharry (including myself in the past), don't knock it until you try it. " Report Response
