"Very laid back, relaxed feel" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's location (proximity to the hospital) and the problem-based learning" More from this Member | Report Response

"The family atmosphere among students and professors." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was more of a conversation about my file and my life, my goals, etc. I actually had a nice conversation with both of my interviewers.

"The students were REALLY passionate about Mercer and the curriculum. They looked at everything positively, but still answered our questions very honestly.

"I absolutely loved how friendly everyone was. The admissions staff and my interviewers were wonderful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seem very happy and content here. Small class sizes, access to faculty and just the team spirit amongst students They have a Problem based learning curriculum for 1st two yrs and either ul love it or be scared to attempt it because its heavily dependent on the student to learn materials which is a habit any physician should have anyway plus ive been to schools with a more traditional lecture format and students have told me they dont attend lectures cos they learn better studying alone or with groups The hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"Recently renovated hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews were so relaxed that it actually threw me off guard. But still be prepared for them. All the students seemed happy to be there as well. I also liked that the school is by Mercer University instead of being isolated. The university has a great food court in one building, so you have more areas to hang out or study if you want."

"EVER SINGLE PERSON is down to earth and very willing to help. I had a break before one of my interviews and students actually came up to me to give me advice about my interviewers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"everything! Everyone was incredibly friendly, and they took the time to listen to what you had to say. The students are really positive about their school and the PBL curriculum seems like it would be a great fit for my way of learning." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything- small school, very close knit,PBL, everyone is SO friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"Student faculty ratio and the hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were really cool. They appeared to have created a family type relationship amongst their peers. A great way to approach med school considering a medical education is so challenging. The library staff seemed like they would go way out of their way to help you if you need them. The faculty did a good job of calming any jitters we had going into this." More from this Member | Report Response

"the Medical Center, students, admissions staff, both interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the staff, faculty, and students. The curriculum. The HOSPITAL was excellent. They sold me on PBL. The small class size. Their teaching methodology. Their clinical experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The people were amazing! I figured everyone would be cheerful, but not to this extent!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I am convinced that Mercer's PBL methodology is effective at "improving" the acacemic quality of a student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students that we met were awesome. We got to spend a lot of time with them." More from this Member | Report Response

"the admissions staff is super friendly. the class size at mercer is very small (app. 56) and with the pbl curriculum, you work in even smaller groups (between 6-8)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The sincere friendliness of the faculty and staff and their desire to help the students learn and progress through the program, the happiness of the students, the time students have available for recreational interests, the resources available to help students in the PBL curriculum, the size of the Medical school buliding on the inside (it looks small from the outside - but man its huge inside when you start hoofing it around in there)." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was impressed by everything the school had to offer its students. The friendliness of the staff and students was very impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"The PBL curriculum and the general happiness of the student body." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"Asked sexist/ probing questions. Were grilling from the start. Don't even have a histology lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer, seemingly, was trying to discourage me from the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviewers seemed to have social interaction issues (so much so that student tour guides apologized on their behalf without prompting), Savannah "campus" is much less a campus and more a couple of rooms at a hospital, value for the money seemed incredibly lacking, very cagey when asked about success of PBL" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, though new (they've recently moved into a new building in Savannah) feel a bit disconnected. The individual study/classrooms are nice though. The Dean also said they are hoping to start construction on a new med school building in the next 4 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The only negative experience I had was with the cafeteria at lunch time! I was given a voucher for a specific amount and the cashier gave me a hard time for purchasing something that was LESS than the amount of my voucher." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interview was blind - and confrontational. I almost believe I was set up for sabotage - but held strong." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything right now." More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the school is unimpressive, but other than that, everything was really amazing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Savannah satellite campus doesn't have all their own faculty, so they do video feeds from Macon (and on few occasions vice versa)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities seemed a bit old and lacked technology" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were pretty underwhelming... And my second interviewer kept interrupting me. I could hardly answer her questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were unremarkable. For such a high tuition, I thought they would have more technology and nicer facilities. The library was unimpressive. We never saw the anatomy lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. We didn't get a tour of the hospital, which would have been cool, but the hospital cafeteria food was good at least!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I really loved the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The financial aid packet is not ver informative, otherwise nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital is separate from campus, cadaver lab not til late first year, and you switch small groups every 6 weeks so studying partners have to change. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Macon is not the ideal location but the students seem to make the best out of it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was late for my first interview because the scheduling was off." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tours were not very detailed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school is small but so is the class size so i guess it evens out. Library seems old." More from this Member | Report Response

"Macon isn't exactly the hot spot of the world" More from this Member | Report Response

"At lunch, the 3rd and 4th years write an evaluation on you later. I was a little annoyed when I first found out about it on SDN, but it's not a big deal. I tried to use it to my advantage and still felt I could open up to them. Additionally, there isn't a cafeteria, but students just seem to eat out or at home. And as I mentioned, you could always walk right over to the university and grab something." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, let's face it, Macon, GA isn't exactly a social hotspot. That's about it though." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no enough time to tour the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"that a large portion of the class is married and has kids (could be a good thing if you are ready to get married)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school only has one building." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they wouldn't let me enroll that day....just kidding! Nothing about the day was negative at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was kind of short, didn't really give me much of an idea of the facilities. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Immaturity of one of the 4th year med students!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school itself was slightly small but wasnt a big deal, still nice. Interviews were in various locations downtown, but everyone gave great directions and only took about five minutes to get there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The small PBL rooms were absolutely disgusting. I know people spend alot of time there but I couldn't. The interviewers did not look at my file at all so the interviews were very impersonable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One interiewer was a little negative but the other was better than I could have hoped for." More from this Member | Report Response

"If anything negatively impressed me it would be that it was too laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"Macon--different from where I am currently going to school--but still not so bad. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the rain...nothing about the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we could have gotten a tour of the whole campus, not just the medical building." More from this Member | Report Response

"The average MCAT is 26-27, even though the avg. undergrad GPA is 3.7ish." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that I had one hour of "free time"" More from this Member | Report Response

"The Yr-2 students who toured us around the basic science campus seemed a little disinterested, but the Yr-4 students who toured us around the hospital were great. Also, my second interviewer was changed at the last minute due to an emergency and so I felt like the replacement didn't really have a chance to read through my file. Also, she had a meeting to go to twenty minutes after I arrived for the interview so it was very rushed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not the most modern facilities. Also, during Clinical years, some students have to go to Savannah as opposed to staying in Macon. I was told that most students volunteer to go, but occasionally a lotery makes the decision." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we could have spent more time touring the hospital. However, we did get to spend a good bit of time with the fourth year students. (Try and ask LOTS of questions, you'll learn a lot of interesting information.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not crazy about Macon, although I didn't get to see much of the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just the 28000 a year tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not enough time was spent discussing financial aid...if I'm spending $27,000 a year to go there, I'd like to know how I can pay for it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much really" More from this Member | Report Response

"small library" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a whole lot. I came away with Mercer as my number one choice. They did a good job promoting their program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too little time to see everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location was boring with not a lot to do. They didn't show us the cadaver labs. They made us take a 1 hour personality test that was really annoying. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital tour was about 5 minutes away from the admission's office. So, we had to drive over there. NOt really a big deal though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not really any negative aspects. This medical school is smaller than most. For me that is a plus because I come from a smaller undergrad and I enjoy close relationships between faculty and student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, it was as great of an experience as I expected it would be" More from this Member | Report Response

"We didn't get to see the cadaver labs." More from this Member | Report Response

"Having to drive over to the medical center for the hospital tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Both of my interviewers (but especially the second one) seemed rather confrontational, even hostile at times. Instead of the "getting to know you" vibe I got at all of my other interviews, it seemed like these two were more interested in calling me and/or proving me wrong on every response I made. I knew it would be bad when the first question I was asked was why my "science" recomedations came from Chemistry and not Biology professors." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I live here in Macon so anything that might have negatively impressed me would have done so a long time ago and I just don't remember it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of diversity." More from this Member | Report Response

"you were on your own for transportation to get to the lunch site. it wasn't too hard to find, but it is a little stressful during interview day to be driving in unfamiliar territory. and who wants to feel like you can't follow simple driving directions?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Small school & Class size - It's a Positive for me, but some might view this as a negative - depends on what you're looking for." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital tour." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Know the mission and make sure you reflect that mission." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"They do not care about grades or honesty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Who the interviewers were" More from this Member | Report Response

"Directions to the building/meeting place were a bit vague." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much - it was very relaxed and well organized. I was surprised to learn that, though the average grades/scores of incoming students may be a bit lower than other schools, their board scores are well above average - shows that the curriculum seems to be very effective!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax. Do a mock interview, just to get yourself in the right mind set, but RELAX. The interview is non-stressful. Just remember, be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I'd known to prepare for a good bit of walking because I would've worn more comfortable shoes!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring a couple extra dollars cash for lunch in Savannah. They give you a $5 certificate to the cafeteria, but it's easy to go over with a drink.." More from this Member | Report Response

"I looked on this website, so I was pretty well prepared. I think the most important thing is that the 4th years are reviewing you, too, and you will have to drive to the hospital and back, sometimes even for your first or second interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I loved the school and the PBL format. Will definitely reapply EDP if I don't get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything right now." More from this Member | Report Response

"As far as the process of the interview goes, they were very good about detailing it to us. But, in regards to my interview, I'd say I wish I knew that they were going to pick out certain weaknesses in my application (including something from a letter) and asked me what I thought about each thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you go to the Savannah campus then make sure you bring a cell phone and the phone number they give you in the email. You will need this to call the secretary to let you in the door." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt I was well prepared" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing in particular. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, any questions I had were answered in the welcoming time." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview truly is laidback and one shouldnt prepare for a grilling but rather a conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was going to be a conversation. There was literally no questions asked during my second interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Some interviewers are tougher than others...I had a surgeon..." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer seemed interested in my volunteer work and leadership experience. I've heard from other interviewees that volunteer work is focused on." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, this sort of applies. In my first interview, I wasn't told that the little lunch with the 4th year students is most DEFINITELY part of your interview. I mean to the point where these random students you think you are just eating with are actually writing evaluations of you after lunch. They didn't tell us that my 1st time and I sat there like an idiot chatting with another applicant. This wasn't because I am anti-social, I was just relaxed thinking the interview was over! This year though, they made sure to remind us of that before our interviews began for the day, so that helped a LOT. I made sure to be as friendly and talkative as possible, and ask a lot of questions to the students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. With the preparation that I have done for the interview, I had no surprises. I still had questions, but nothing that I wish I had known ahead of time. Some people finished before lunch, interviewing at 10 and 11. Others had an interview after lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"that there is some wait time b/w interview s " More from this Member | Report Response

"They have tons of student support mechanisms (leadership innitiatives, health checks, big brother/sisters for 1st years, book clubs etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"they also give you a personality test. my interviewer told me it is not a factor in the admissions process, but they may use it in the future for research purposes. it just caught me off guard and was a little surprising to have to answer 200 questions rating things like "people like me," "i cheat at solitaire," and "i usually like to work alone." Also, the first time their board meets is not until January, which was sort of disappointing, just because it adds to the waiting game. Also, you are given a sheet of paper to give to your interviewer with a sample question to get you started. So, know what you want to sell about yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

I really would have liked to see more of the hospital. We ate in the cafeteria, but it would have been nice to take a tour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I think this was a perfect example of how important the interview process is for both the student and the school. So much of the application process is abstract, and an interview really makes things tangible and realistic. The interviewee truly gets to see if this is where he/she wants to study medicine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff was very nice and willing to help with anything. They all kept saying to be nice to everyone, including custodians, because word gets around!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers will be looking at your application before hand so make sure you read over it again. The process is very casual and expect to just chat some. They will definitely ask you about staying in GA. Also, when you go out to lunch with the student(s) make sure you realize that it is an interview and they will be writing a review about you."

"It's difficult to pin point specific questions asked during the interview because they are formulated based on the info that you submit (AMCAS, secondary, LOR). I tried to put in a few of the general ones that were asked, but make sure to thoroughly review all of your submitted materials to see where questions will come from. Definitely know about the PBL curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"Always ask questions to your interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, Excellent. Don't stay at the Marriott that is recommended, it is too far from the school. Stay as close as possible because a lot of interviews take place at the hospital and not the med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm always nervous at interviews, but this was the lowest stress one yet. But still be prepared for them. I had one interview on campus with an immunologist (PhD) and the other at the nearby hospital with a 4th year student on the committee. We were given a tour of both the medical school and some of the hospital. Mercer wants doctors who will practice in GA so keep that in mind. I thought I might get a strike against me because I haven't lived in GA my whole life, but there are other students there who haven't either. Not everyone is specializing in primary care either. One of the 4th year students planned on pursuing ophthalmology. Overall, it was a great experience and I'm waiting to hear back from the committee which should be meeting before Thanksgiving some time. Acceptances are given by phone calls and certified letters, which I think is so less stressful. Additionally, Mercer wants to know that you will fit into their entire PBL curriculum. Everyone has to adjust to it so don't worry about having some difficulty at first." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mercer's interviews are probably the absolute least stressful interviews you will have. Everyone there is VERY nice and really makes you feel like you just belong there from the moment you walk through the door. It was a great day. I interviewed August 21st, and got the acceptance phone call September 5th =)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Low stress, informative" More from this Member | Report Response

"really great. the dean comes in to talk to you about general stuff and then the financial aid people come to talk to you. this was actualy a very informative finical aid talk so listen. then i had two interviews - one with a faculty member and one with a student. both were really laid back and non-stressful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers truly wanted to know how (and if) I would fit into their school and its curriculum. To do well in the interview, you MUST read up on Mercer's PBL and curriculum. Look at the website and talk to students there if possible." More from this Member | Report Response

"Knowing a lot about the curriculum, I had high expectations, yet the entire experience was still more than I expected. I was lucky and had both interviews on campus. Some students had to travel from place to place. So, be prepared. One interview lasted 45-50 minutes, and the other lasted 70 minutes. Having an interview go long can be good, but it might make you late for the next meeting. Everyone was understanding, and it didn't seem to count against me. The interviewers DO have access to your file. However, some may choose NOT to look at it. Although both went extremely well, I thought the interview went better for the person that had a chance to review my file. So, be ready to start from scratch." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mercer's overall campus (undergrad and grad ) is really nice. I like the rural location of Mercer. I especially like the accessibility of the faculty and the PBL approach leading." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at 8:00 a.m. I stayed on campus with a friend. In the morning, Dean Inniss gave interviewees a great background summary on Mercer. They mentioned the board pass rate and the boards scores as the highest in GA. The Financial Aid people came to talk about the debt that we will incur. After the introduction each student was given a file about their interviewers. Each interviewer had an opportunity to look an applicant's file before the interview. There were two interviewers, one in the morning and then perhaps one in the afternoon. My first interviewer was a 4th year med student, the second was with Dr. Sipple. Both my interviews were in the morning. The one difficult question I had was about how to fix the healthcare system in America. After the interview, there was lunch at the MCCG. You must have a car to drive to the medical center. There was a tour of the MCCG and then lunch with a bunch of 4th years. One of them lacked any sort of compassion and repsect for his patients. Parking is free and the lunch at the hospital is not bad. You are free to leave once your interviews are finished." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great, just relax b/c everyone is very helpful and laid back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great. Very laid back. You interview with one committee member and one non committee member and both of my interviews were in their offices. Neither one of them had looked at my file and interviewed me. Not numbers and all of that crap. They interviewed me. It was an excellent experience and I got accepted!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"We began the day with a meeting with a Financial aid consultant and the dean of admissions. We were then given our interviewer names/locations and escorted to our first interview. We had lunch with the 4th year students and then finally went back to the school for our last interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Stress-free and straightforward." More from this Member | Report Response

"We first met with the associate dean of admissions, followed by financial aid. We were then given the names of our interviewers and times of interviews, along with driving directions. Some interviewees were done by lunch, others had interviews after lunch. We were all done by 3PM. Lunch was provided at the hospital and we ate with 4th year med students who also gave us a brief tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started at 8:30AM with the dean of admissions. After discussing the school with us for a bried period financial aid came in to give us the bad news. After that we were shown around the facilities by second-year students and taken to our first interviews. Some of us had back-to-back interviews at 10 and 11 while others had interviews at 10 and 2. We had lunch with fourth year students at the hospital and returned for interviews after a short tour of the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"I applied twice since I was rejected the first time. The interview with the committee member 1st cycle (Innes) was really awkward, but all of the other interviewers were really nice. Of course the 2nd time I interviewed I had spent the past few months mentoring students and working in a hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dean and finacial aid rep spoke with the group (7 of us in my group); Quick tour and Q&A with 2nd yr students; Had one hour of free time; Had first interview; Lunch with 4th year students at hospital; Had last interview; I LEFT HAPPY " More from this Member | Report Response

"You arrive and meet with the Dean of Admissions and the Head of Financial Aid for about one hour. The you recieve a brief tour of the basic science campus before attending your first interview. Some people had back to back interviews at 10 and 11, but others did not. At noon you go to the hospital and eat lunch with fourth year students and get the chance to ask them questions (they are also evaluating you, but they are so friendly that you don't even notice). " More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience has been very positive both years. You will gather in the actual room the admission committee sits in to make decisions. The admissions councelor will give a talk about the school and the process. She gives you the names of your two interviewers and tells which is the committe member and which is the non-committee member. Then, Financial Aid comes in to give the really bad news. Finally, second year students come in to "candidly" answer questions (though I don't know how candid they really are). They give a short tour of the school and then guide you to your first interview. At least one interview will be at the school. The interview is one-on-one and lasts up to an hour. The second interview may be at the school. Both of mine were downtown at the hospital where clerkships take place. The drive is short, however, and everyone being interviewed winds up there for lunch. After interviews, you eat (free) lunch with third year students. The cafeteria is good enough to chose Mercer right off! Then, you are given a tour of the hospital. Finally, you return to the school for one of those cheesy personality tests. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just be sure to answer questions about PBL and you have own the mission statement. The interviewer basically is there to see whether you will fit into Mercer's mission of serving rural GA and being in primary care! " More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview was nothing like I expected. It was very laid back (as they say). Everything went great! I just received my acceptance letter yesterday!! I am very excited about attending such a great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everybody was laid back, faculty and students. I felt very comfortable with everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"I just wanted to clear this up. Another student and I took our personality test earlier than the other students because of scheduling issues. We specificly asked if it would be used to determine admission and she assured us it would not. When we met with the fourth year students they all warned us to take the personality test seriously because it is actually used in determining admission. We informed them that we were told otherwise and they assured us that the tests are in fact used to determine if you are the right type of person for Mercer. So the advice I gave was legitimate whether it is ethical or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"First off, I must mention that I was told specifically that the personality test is NOT considered in regards to your acceptance. The previous poster says otherwise. It seems pretty unethical if Mercer were to outright lie about this, and in MUSM's defence, I am 99% sure that this is NOT the case. If it was the case, how did this person really know? I don't get it. Further, the fourth year students that took us on a short tour of the hospital, told us (the pre-meds) to relax and ask us anything because you are NOT being evaluated. I for one believe this to be the case. Anyway, overall it was a good experience. Just relax, get plenty of sleep the night before, and be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Once you get there you wait with the other interviewees in the lobby. Make sure you are friendly and talk with the others because you are being watched. Then you meet in the conference room with the dean and discuss Mercer and its mission. Financial Aid comes in for about five seconds and gives you forms. Next the second year students answer any questions, give you a tour, and escort you to your first interview. After that we took the personality test. Once completed we carpooled to the hospital and spent two hours there eating lunch and touring with the fourth year students. After this break we were escorted to our last interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school; great learning environment; Macon sucks but Atlanta is only 1.5 hours north; Mercer has made it to my top choice school now!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very easy going- first meet with dean of admissions, meet with 2nd year students, interview, lunch with students, interview, go home. One of my interviewers really got going on some strange questions, but I know that I did fine. Just answer all questions very honestly and remember there are tons of "right" answers. Sometimes I think they just like to see you squirm a bit and see how you react." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall its very good and Mercer is on my top list as of now." More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was great. I went in a little nervous but within the first thirty minutes of arriving and meeting the faculty I was as calm as could be. My fellow interviewees were really cool too. The interviewers were relaxed and mostly just trying to get to know you...I did not feel like they tried to corner me any. The hospital was really cool...They just rebuilt their ER and it looked top notch. Like I said all and all the experience was great. I found out today that I was not accepted but that's cool...It's not the end of my medical road. I still had a blast visiting Mercer and I encourage everyone to just relax and have fun. If you get it you get it and if not then try again. If your making it to the interview stage then you've made it to far to turn back now. Good luck to everyone!!"

"Fantastic experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Went in thinking this will be boring. Came out sold on the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, I was very surprised. Going in, I didn't expect too much but leaving, it turns out that I would be very very happy attending school here. The students were speaking highly of the education they were receiving. It's a tight niche class and the prof's knows everyone by their first name. Basically, I was going in looking for gold and I came away with a diamond!" More from this Member | Report Response

"When the interview day was complete, I was sold on this school. This was my first med-school interview so i didn't have any idea what to expect. Since then I've interviewed a couple of times and I've been comparing everything to Mercer. The admission's staff and faculty were wonderful. Mercer has some very distinct attributes such as class size and curriculum. This is certainly "my kind of med-school." " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great! They try very hard to make you feel comfortable. Considering how nice every one is, it is very difficult to get nervous or worried." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax guys! I know that you'll be nervous beforehand, but once you get inside you'll see how great the faculty treats their visitors. Both of my interviews were mostly conversational. We talked about current events, football, and a little about me too!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews were the most stressful part for me. Some interviewers there do a wonderful job, but some are very confrontational and increase stress levels dramatically. Overall, I found the students, staff, and atmosphere very impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hard to say...the people in the admissions office are WONDERFUL, and I really admired how close the students seem to be both as a student body and with the faculty. But I was really discouraged by both of my interviewers who really seemed to make it apparent that they were doing me a favor by taking time out of their schedules to interview me. (One even made me sit across from her in her office and wait - in silence - while she finished checking her e-mail!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"First interview went well even though I was drilled with question after question about very specific details of my future life. This was odd because so much of my future is still very vague. I mean, how can I say if I will be in a group practice or not? Or how large my practice will be? My second interview was incredible. We just sat and talked and I got to present myself the way I wanted to in a conversational atmosphere. It couldn't have gone better. Luckily my second interview was with my adcom member. Things must have worked well because I got a waitlist letter this last Saturday (3-29-03) and my acceptance letter on Thursday (4-3-03)!! Mercer, here I come." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was very organized and I didn't feel bored or rushed at any point. Students were awesome, very helpful, and they answered all questions candidly. Admissions staff was extremely helpful. My first interview was with an admissions committee member and it went pretty smoothly. The second interview was tough! It took a while before he relaxed a little and started talking. At other interviews, I could always tell if things went bad or good, but at Mercer it was tough to gauge what they thought of me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff is very friendly, which is comforting and relaxing. They also let you know information about your interviewer beforehand, which is nice. Altogether, the day went smoothly and stress-free. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome! I loved the it! Its a small class of 56 students, and the curriculum is Problem Based Learning. This creates a very collegial environment where the students work together to help each other achieve success in medschool. The students were very happy and outgoing. The PBL curriculum causes them to have to work more diligently than students at a traditional curriculum school (TONS of reading), but it pays off with high board pass rates and high board scores. Also the students begin clinical experiences within the first week and continue this throughout the curriculum - generating very competent students when they begin their 3rd and 4th year rotations. The students do have ample time (with time management skills of course) to have a life outside of medicine, thanks to not having lectures (the students are in tutorial sessions on MWF 9-12, and lab either Tues or Thurs afternoons). Definently a great school for students looking for a high quality program with a warm and collegial environment. ALSO - students are not forced into primary care. Many of the 4th year students that I spoke with were going for specialties (Ortho, Dermatology, ENT, Radiology, Rad-Onc., Anesthesiology, as well as Int. Med. at top programs to be followed up with a Fellowship)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty did their best to put you at ease." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the Mercer interview experience was very laid-back. The students, professors, and office faculty did everything in their power to make sure you had a relaxing day. Surprisingly, my stress level decreased as the day went on. After a morning interview session, we took a tour with 4th year students and then had lunch with current 3rd and 4th years. These students all seemed very happy, and this was a great opportunity for questions. After lunch, we had a second interview and then filled out a psychological survey. Applicants were then free to leave. I was offered an acceptance approximately three weeks after my interview." More from this Member | Report Response
