What impressed you positively?

"The history of the school and how staff are so passionate about making it a part of your total educational experience." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student interview session! They were extremely standoffish, and not very welcoming at all. They did answer questions pretty well, but never smiled, never made eye contact, and seemed to have some weird clique and hazing-type rituals going on...yuck." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The campus tour was very informative, but didn't really entail much (i.e., we didn't even have time to actually walk through the building that classes are held in). You have to make your own time/arrangements for a more in depth tour, or to sit in on a class, etc." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I like Meharry's approach to education, albeit a bit overbearing. The familial atmosphere and super support system is a real plus for anyone needing it or wanting to take advantage of it. Hopefully all of the students aren't as unpleasant as the group we met!" Report Response
