What impressed you positively?

"Enthusiasm of students for school, Meharry's overall committment to serving their communities, and also, the fact that Meharry has both a 4-year and 5-year MD program. They are really willing to go the extra mile and take risks for students. IThis is very impressive, and really conveys to me that Meharry is devoted to helping is students succeed. I really love this school!!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Well, the facilities could use improvement. Additionally, classes typically begin at 8 a.m.. When other interviewees and I visited some of the early classes, literally most students were either asleep or checking their email on laptops. And finally, the lunch given to interviewees isn't very good. However, these are all very minor points, and they don't affect my overall positive impression of Meharry." Report Response

"The admissions office is located on a very steep hill that took me a while to climb. But that's because I'm slow :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My day began with a brief introduction by Ms. Baity, who is one of the kindest women that I've ever met. Next, all interviewees were placed in pairs. Each had to provide the entire group with a mini-introduction of their partner. Afterwards, we watched a short film on Meharry. One the film ended, we received our interview assignments, and left for a campus tour. At the end of the tour, some interviewees went to their individual interviews, while the remaining interviewees took personal tours of the campus. Sometime later, we all reconvened for lunch with the medical students. The day ended on a very positive note. I had three interviews. Two faculty interviews, and then a student interview. My entire interview experience was relaxing and overall, just wonderful. I really like Meharry, and would be honored to be accepted there. I'm sincerely praying for this to happen. The Admissions staff, in addition to all of the students I met, were all great." Report Response
