What impressed you positively?

"Everyone is guenuinely friendly...from staff to students. The hospital truly serves the underserved. The students were relaxed, happy, and passionate about being at Meharry. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We had to find our way to each interview with minimal instructions from the admissions staff. Basically, we were given a map and told to find our way. Some students were unlucky to have back to back interviews in different buildings. Not only is this confusing, but it is stressful when you arrive at an interview a late because you couldn't find your way. Also, the campus tour was cancelled due to rain. The tour guide didn't even attempt to modify the tour...so no tour!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Meharry's curriculum is being overhauled this year. They are making the transition to PBL." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall my experience at Meharry was extremely positive. The interviewers for the most part were relaxed and simply wanted to get to know me as an individual. One of my interviews was actually extended because we were having a great conversation. Although the interview is "closed-file" be prepared to answer ANY questions about your grades/coursework/GPA/MCAT scores/SAT scores (yes...SAT scores)/ACT scores. I actually had to go through and list all of this info. in one of my interviews." Report Response
