"SDN, read mercer websight, read my application over again, brushed up my knowledge on PBL, read some interview books." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"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." Report Response

"Their avg. USMLE step I score is 237 with the rest of the nation having a avg. of 216. Really says a lot about PBL" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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!!" Report Response
