What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 8:00 a.m. I stayed on campus with a friend. In the morning, Dean Inniss gave interviewees a great background summary on Mercer. They mentioned the board pass rate and the boards scores as the highest in GA. The Financial Aid people came to talk about the debt that we will incur. After the introduction each student was given a file about their interviewers. Each interviewer had an opportunity to look an applicant's file before the interview. There were two interviewers, one in the morning and then perhaps one in the afternoon. My first interviewer was a 4th year med student, the second was with Dr. Sipple. Both my interviews were in the morning. The one difficult question I had was about how to fix the healthcare system in America. After the interview, there was lunch at the MCCG. You must have a car to drive to the medical center. There was a tour of the MCCG and then lunch with a bunch of 4th years. One of them lacked any sort of compassion and repsect for his patients. Parking is free and the lunch at the hospital is not bad. You are free to leave once your interviews are finished." Report Response
