What are your general comments?

"I was generally pleased with what Meharry had to offer ( I was not blown away by any one thing but it was definitely not a disappointment). My interviews were very relaxing. I felt that my interviewers were really concerned about getting to know that real me, and they tried to make the interview as comfortable for me as possible. The drawback for me was that we had to walk a bit to different buildings where the interviews were being held and for me that was difficult as they were back-to-back so I literally had to sprint across the campus to get to my other interview on time. One of the rooms to my interviewer's office was incorrectly listed so i had a really hard time finding her office and that increased my stress level a bit because I was beginning to get a bit anxious. But other than that everything was fine." Report Response
