How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read the school's mission. I reviewed obvious questions (why medicine, why be a doctor, why meharry). Other than that, I practiced my weakest area...how I spoke. I am soft spoken and knew it would count against me if I didn't sound confident in what I was saying. I didn't bother memorizing answers because there was no telling what I would be asked aside from the obvious questions. I did read over my personal statement to be sure I did not deviate from what was mentioned in the personal statement. Also, I checked over my AMCAS application and thought of responses for anything that could be viewed in a negative light. I read my secondary application for Meharry." Report Response
