What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of everyone on campus. From the students to the professors to the locals, there is a very friendly and helpful aura at the school. Also, you can tell that the students and workers are genuinely happy at the school, and that gives you a really positive vibe. Finally, I learned a lot of really interesting history about the school from the tour guide." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus is a little smaller than what I expected. Also, it wasn't as up to date as far as the facilities go, but it seemed to get the job done." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Dress for the weather. You will be standing outside for awhile during the tour, so bring gloves or a coat if it's cold and dress comfortably. I know a lot of the girls wished they wore flats. Also, you will be sitting in a room with other applicants bc the interviews are in different shifts, so bring a snack/bottle of water bc you'll get hungry. Finally, try to have a handful of questions to ask the interviewer. One girl's interviewer kept asking her if she had any more questions after she had already asked 7!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't stress! The interviewer was the least bit intimidating, and it felt more like a conversation with a respected elder in a grocery store more than an interview for med school. Try to be really thorough when you answer your interviewer's questions. It seemed like my answers gauged what she was going to ask next. Be very familiar with the school's mission. The student luncheon was very informal, and they didn't sit and take notes about us. The student center is not visible from Meharry street. You have to turn into the parking lot, and you'll see it from there." Report Response
