What impressed you positively?

"I liked the Nashville area and the Meharry campus is pretty nice; they have done some renovations so it looks pretty good. The students seemed happy to be there which made me feel better about the school. Most of the faculty seem like they really care about the students and the work they do there. The clinic was not so bad either." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school seems to be highly disorganized which is scary. Some of the faculty seems harsh/distant. Some of the facilities are old. Little to no financial aid in scholarships. One of the interviewers had an abrasive personality and would ask questions in a weird manner which made that particular interview difficult. They phrased their questions in a confusing way and would also ask me a question but then answer their own question before I could. They would also ask a question but then ask another question in the same breath and would get confused if I tried to answer both questions." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I spoke with other applicants and the interview experience changes greatly by who is interviewing you. Some interviewers are pretty abrasive and/or tough, others are kind and gentle and just want to have a simple conversation with you to get to know you better. Their opinions of you are separate so if you do bad in one interview, it will not affect the opinion of the other and vice versa." Report Response
