What impressed you positively?

"The warm welcome we received from both students and staff. The theme that was prominent throughout the entire interview is that Morehouse fosters an atmosphere of teamwork among students.

I was really impressed by that and glad to hear that the atmosphere was not based on a cutthroat competitive basis." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Wonderful experience because there were a lot of stereotypes that were dispelled for me by actually talking to students and staff members. Now Morehouse is number one on my list for medical schools. I believe Morehouse looks on the whole person instead of focussing primarily on scores. We did what was called a "blind" interview where our interviewer did not see our scores our transcripts until the minute before the interview. This was done so that the interviewers would not have any preconceived thoughts or biases towards the interviewee. I think this is a fair method." Report Response
