What impressed you positively?

"the best part of the day was actually talking with my interviewers...they were so welcoming and laid back and in both there were not a lot of structured questions, just a conversation...and at financial aide this was the first institution that gave scholarship (not loans) to economically disadvantaged individuals based on your parents income" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"meharry is not a school that "woos" you....the students did not go out of their way to talk to you, you were given a schedule and a map and from then, you were on your own to find your interview location/financial aide/ housing...so you pretty much showed meharry to yourself...the lunch was straight out of grade school (a homemade sandwhich, chips, apple and cookie)....the only time a felt welcomed during the entire day was by my interviewers " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the opening speaker informed us that 9 out of 10 people who interview get put on a waitlist spot (until march 15 when all schools have to reveal acceptances to one another)...he said meharry was playing "the game" just like we were playing "the game"" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I was not really impressed... the day started with a talk, a video about meharry's vision, a photoshoot (headshots of everyone) and then as I mentioned before you were given a schedule and then you were on your own for the rest of the day besides the required sack lunch with some med students...bring a book or something to do to pass the time."
