What impressed you negatively?

"The Dean and Admissions coordinator, they weren't as receptive as I presumed. SMALL campus. Library is small and closes at 9 or 10pm. Tuition is expensive since private school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Dean and A.c. Jordana will be swamped with other potentials trying to get their face remembered. And that they seem slightly jaded by the whole process. Everyone gives out their business card (even students), and I feel like if you get more that would show yourself that you are better at communicating and networking." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I LOVE that Mercer is so close to Atlanta. Lots of fun stuff to do in that city. Students were super nice in explaining the block schedule of classes, answering any questions about the program or their experiences. The interview is 3 blocks 30 min each: one with a student, one with faculty member, and a social time. The social with the Dean, A.c., and other potentials is the hardest part because you don't know anyone and have to make a nice impression." Report Response
