"They tell you the personality test is not used in their decision but it really is so take it seriously. Also some of the med students that give you tours write evaluations so don't let your guard down." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Once you get there you wait with the other interviewees in the lobby. Make sure you are friendly and talk with the others because you are being watched. Then you meet in the conference room with the dean and discuss Mercer and its mission. Financial Aid comes in for about five seconds and gives you forms. Next the second year students answer any questions, give you a tour, and escort you to your first interview. After that we took the personality test. Once completed we carpooled to the hospital and spent two hours there eating lunch and touring with the fourth year students. After this break we were escorted to our last interview."
