What was the most interesting question?

"An only child has leukemia and the best possible match for a donor is a sibling. The parent's tell you they have decided to try to have another child. What is your reaction and how would you advise them?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"If you had a subordinate, and you two disagreed on things, and you know you are 100% right, how would you handle the situation? (and he kept asking details of my answer and switching the scenario around--That's what made it hard!)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"School's website, SDN" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everybody was so nice. It was so easy to pick up a conversation as students stop to say hello and talk to you about their experience. Even faculty members stopped by to greet you and wish you luck!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was not a real tour. They only showed us where the buildings were and etc, but we didn't really get a walk through tour of the facilities." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Tuition had gone up but it's still cheaper than most schools. The interviewees are scheduled with the same interviewees back-to-back (giving less than 30 mins/interview--I went over during both faculty interviews)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day is split into three parts, morning interviews, lunch and afternoon interviews. Two faculty interviews and a student interview during lunch. The people were so welcoming that I didn't feel stressed during my interviews at all. I found out if you just carry a conversation with the interviewer it doesn't give them much time to grill you on particulars. I was impressed that two of my interviewers gave me feedback on my interview and the student even gave me advice for the next interview. I could definitely tell they wanted their interviewees to have the best opportunities while at Meharry." Report Response
