What are your general comments?

"Since there weren't many feedbacks posted for Meharry, I basically put down most of the questions they asked me during my interview. And I sincerely hope this helps students who have interviews scheduled at this school. Just in case you're wondering, then yes their current freshman class did consist of students from various enthnic backgrounds. And No, I am not African American :-) We were a group of 8 students, and 2-3 ppl were interviewed at a time. The day itself is pretty relaxed, so there is no need to stress out. Just be yourself, and good luck :-) " Report Response
