What impressed you positively?

"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)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. " Report Response
