What are your general comments?

"First interviewer did not ask many questions at all. He did not review my file. Asked GPA/MCAT and than talked a little about the cirriculum. A nice professor though. My second interviewer simply blew me away. Not only did he review my file beforehand, he mentioned that he "shed a few tears" while reading my essays. He was what every interviewee wants. He was caring and knew enough about me to hold a nice conversation. He described his role in the school and his background which was very considerate as this helped add substance to our conversation. I walked away feeling this person cared about me as an applicant and truly wanted for me to attend Meharry. Wow! The tour was led by a faculty member who gave a wonderful narration of the school's history and of the campus. It was like I was listening to someone doing a voiceover on National Geographic or The Learning Channel. It was a good tour. Just wished the sights were a bit more modern. Like the previous posts have mentioned, the day seemed slightly disjointed. The group (about a dozen people) met in a conference room in the Basic Sciences Center, an introduction was given by an old gentleman who also was one of the deans, after this a very short financial aid session was presented. Interview times were scattered throughout the day and the campus. My first was at 9:30 and a second one at 1:30. Lunch was at noon in the hospital. Every other moment was essentially on your own, there really wasn't an area one could lounge in. You had the option of attending a class (which was a nice touch). BTW, you have lunch with a group of 1st and 2nd year students and they actually interview you. They fill out short forms judging your motivations, interest, etc. It was like a third interview, but naturally a bit more causual." Report Response
