What impressed you positively?

"I have had several interviews including other other HBSUs and I really felt felt that the concern for sudent sucess among faculty and other students was genuine. The school on the whole is one of the youngest schools in the country (not quite 30 I want to say) and most of the buildings were built in the last few years. They really have top of the line equipment, lovely facilities and experince wise; you really can't beat Grady Medical Center for it. Their board pass rates are higher than the national average for the last few years. They test the same way the board does. The last time they tracked resideny match (2004 maybe) it was over 90% to 1st or 2nd choice.Finally, I was truly impressed by the other students I interviewed with. They were accomplished people who really had their professional lives together. As they were the best indication of the type of people who attend and graduate from Morehouse, they spoke impressive volumes about the school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing about the school gave me a negative impression, they really seem on top of their game. I'm not a sothern girl though so ATL took a little getting used to :) I was a little disappointed that since it was exam time we didn't have as much 1st year student interaction as I would have liked." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Relax, I think admissions goes out of their way to match you with an interviewer that will make you comfortable. All of the students I interviewed with found they had something in common immediately with their interviewer. One woman had done research in the same field as her interviewer and another gent found his interviewer was from the islands too. My interviewer was a pediatrician and that is the career field I am considering." Report Response

"Overall a very positive experience, I believe Morehouse is one of the better kept secrets in Medical Schools today." Report Response
