What impressed you positively?

"How close-knit and friendly _all_ the students/faculty/everyone I met was. Students were willing to talk to us and be helpful, even though it was during their finals. The fellow interviewees were really cool also, and all of us pretty much spent the day in a small group. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Campus and facilities were small, particularly the library. and there didn't seem to be too many computers around. However, Meharry students do have access to the med school library at Vanderbilt not to far away. Campus housing is tough to get but it's cheap, as is off-campus housing--you still will need a car to get around. " Report Response

"Laid back and friendly. No reason to stress about it, just know the basics and you'll be fine. Also, it doesn't hurt to know Meharry's mission: training primary care (ob/GYN, family practice, internal medicine, etc.) physicians to work in underserved areas and why you're interested in that.
