How did you prepare for the interview?

"First of all, this was my second interview at this school, so that helped me a LOT in preparation. But besides that, just read up on the school and any news concerning it. Also, I made sure I thought of good questions to ask the interviewers the night BEFORE the interview, not while I was sitting there on the spot. I wanted to make sure I asked questions that showed I was not only interested in going to medical school, but I was interested in going THERE." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How friendly and encouraging everyone I met at the school was, including the students. They make you feel like they truly want to accept everyone and they really calm you down if you are nervous." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Well, let's face it, Macon, GA isn't exactly a social hotspot. That's about it though." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Well, this sort of applies. In my first interview, I wasn't told that the little lunch with the 4th year students is most DEFINITELY part of your interview. I mean to the point where these random students you think you are just eating with are actually writing evaluations of you after lunch. They didn't tell us that my 1st time and I sat there like an idiot chatting with another applicant. This wasn't because I am anti-social, I was just relaxed thinking the interview was over! This year though, they made sure to remind us of that before our interviews began for the day, so that helped a LOT. I made sure to be as friendly and talkative as possible, and ask a lot of questions to the students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Mercer's interviews are probably the absolute least stressful interviews you will have. Everyone there is VERY nice and really makes you feel like you just belong there from the moment you walk through the door. It was a great day. I interviewed August 21st, and got the acceptance phone call September 5th =)" Report Response
