How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read my AMCAS, went through the SDN feedback postings, read the Meharry website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The environment was very very friendly. Students, staff, hospital employees, a UPS delivery man, just about everyone that saw me in the suit wished me good luck. It is very much a reality that Meharry is a family like environment. Also, I like the fact that you begin shadowing a physician and interacting with patients your first year. The new alliance with Vanderbilt University also opens up a host of new opportunities for Meharry Medical Students. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"All the first year lectures are in one lecture hall all day long. Then for the second year you just move to the lecture hall across the way. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not that it would affect my decision to attend Meharry or not, since I think it is a great school, but the 2005 school year begins in late June not August. They like to get started right away!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had an awesome experience at Meharry. My first interviewer asked me all sorts of questions about my profile and took lots of notes, but never made me feel uncomfortable at all. My second interviewer and I had a discussion on medical ethics among other things, however once again I never felt like I was being grilled or put on the spot. My advice is just relax, be yourself, and know your AMCAS application inside and out." Report Response
