What are your general comments?

"There were two one-on-one interviews. Everyone was really nice and seemed to be more concerned with getting to know you as a person as opposed to as a student. Lunch with the medical students was probably the most informative part of the day. You get a lot of great feedback and honest answers to your questions. I'd suggest staying at the Millenium Maxwell Hotel, the one that they recommend. Shuttle service is really great, will take you to and from Meharry and to and from the airport." Report Response
