    I know there is a Georgia one but nobody in there is really talking about Morehouse so I decided to start one. Has anybody heard anything from them? God bless.

    Hello, I am an Asian American, would I be really out of place in morehouse?

    No, I don't think so. It is considered a Historical Black Medical school but if you have a desire to serve the underserved then I think you would fit in. Their class is majority African American but they welcome anybody who fits their mission statement. God bless.

    I'm currently working on their secondary right now. Anyone have any questions about it?

    I received it on July 25th after being verified July 14th.

    I just wanted to start this thread so we can talk about anything dealing with Morehouse. I was verified on July 24th so maybe I will get it next week or so.

    do you want the essay questions so you can start working on it?

    There is one long one (typical why did you choose Morehouse and what else would you like the adcom to know about you) and another where it asks you to explain you answers to what type of specialty you wish to pursue, what type of environment you want to practice in, and what size city/location you would like to practice in.

    good luck!

    Hi, just checking on the secondary. Do they send it to your only after you have been verified? Happen to know if they will send it before an MCAT score is released? Thanks and good luck everyone!

    I didn't get mine until a couple of weeks after I was verified. Not sure about before the MCAT, but if they don't screen and you have your AMCAS verified, I dont see why they wouldn't send you the secondary.

    Good Luck.

    So you can get started on it, the one long essay is as follows:
    Type a statement setting forth the key motivational factors in your decision to apply to Morehouse and any information about yourself you feel would be of interest to the Committee on Admission in the consideration of your application. Please keep the response to about one page. (You may want to type your answer in a Word Processor while you are off-line and paste your response here)

    I just got this secondary today. I think they did screen because it took me a few weeks to get this after I was verified by the AMCAS. Does any one know if this school prefers people interested in working with the inner city populations?

    I believe it's rolling admissions. MSAR says they screen primaries, but it may only be strict for out of staters. I know competition for out-of-state residents is more intense since almost half the seats are reserved for people from Georgia. Also, they tend to choose people who are willing to serve the underserved.

    My application was complete August 20th and I received an interview invite Sept 2. It seems like they are reviewing applications pretty quickly, so I would suggest sending the secondary in ASAP!

    I got the interview email today afternoon giving the date/time. Also, the message said that I will get a formal letter in the mail. Maybe you should email the Dean soon...it's never too soon to tell them why you are enthusiastic about the school (in my opinion).

    So I submitted my application online and have been told that they have received my letters and secondary. I was wondering if we have to mail in a picture? Or did they ask for one in the online application?? Thank you and best of luck!

    how should a hold at morehouse be evaluated? I know each school varies in how strict their "hold" is, so I was just wondering if anyone had a clue?

    hey all, I just got an email saying i was on a PRE-INTERVIEW HOLD.

    I was complete 9/25 (they were waiting on my new MCAT scores)
    Received the HOLD 9/30 in my email.

    I'm hoping this is a good thing??? Anybody see previous year's SDN'ers who got put on Hold, yet interviewed later on?

    hey coffee man,
    nice to have a cool crowd of us in the hold group :)
    about my PS score...i think i stopped "studying" and decided to start "practicing" more. I felt like I knew all the concepts but since most of my chemistry and physics classes were back in 2001-2003, I didn't have the problem-solving capacities that comes with practice.
    Granted, the MCAT is more or less a conceptual test that makes you think, but the PS is STILL gonna make you crunch numbers. I finally found this out after two poor scores! I was just missing the practice questions. Got some PS topic tests and went to town on those for a month straight...and ignored BS/VR studies...hope that helps some.

    you are truly Slick, Nick!
    congratulations! Do you mind sharing your stats with us? or anything you believe was special about your application that made them want to interview you.
