What are your general comments?

"I had a great time at Meharry. Everyone was very friendly and nice. One of the faculty interviewers told me that with the smaller class size, they really watch out for their students. The students were also very nice and laid-back. It is not a competitive atmosphere, but more that everyone should do well. Like in other feedback, the community feeling was definitely there and great. Oh, also for us, lunch was good! They also had breakfast food setup for the morning group and we got to snack between sessions which was nice." Report Response
