I interviewed last Monday. Like everyone said, it was really relaxed. The interviewers I had wanted to get to know ME rather than grill me on my stats. I hope to hear some good news in a few weeks:oops:

Thanks for the support guys! I'm just wondering how long it would take to hear anything back since it seems like I would barely have a month to get things rolling if I get accepted. Does anyone know if they notify you of an acceptance faster during this time since time is running out and is there a deadline when they stop inviting pple to interview? And are they still interviewing more people after May 8th? So confusing!!

nah this was also my only interview. but honestly, after seeing that school and doing so much research on it, i'm convinced it's perfect for me. so i hope it wont come down to it ... but i'll definitely reapply to this if i have to. ....but i really really hope it doesnt come down to it...

Hopefully there is a lot of waitlist movement. It seems as if they have waitlisted most of their applicants that interviewed in March and April.

Does anyone know if they have filled their class? I'm guessing they had have it filled by a certain date.

I am assuming they did. According to Mr. Mosley at my interview on april 17th there were only 12 spots left. But he did say that 35 people that had been admitted already have also been admitted elsewhere.

Do you suggest resending an LOI??

I sent one about 2 months ago. No word since then.

Im wondering would it be worth sending another one even thou I havent did too much new in these last two months.

I interviewed there on May 8th and Mr Mosley said that the class is full!! He said by May 16th, he was expecting to have received all the deposits from accepted applicants or seeing how many of them would be withdrawing their applications. He said historically at this point in time about 30 SEATS could be available!!!! SO GOODLUCK TO ALL OF US ON THE WAITLIST OR THOSE WHO JUST INTERVIEWED. WE ALL STILL HAVE A GOOD CHANCE. PRAY HARD!!!

I am currently waitlisted and have contacted admission and Mr. Moseley very recently (my interview was in March).

I was told my admissions that as of yesterday there were no movements in the waitlist. But you kno, the deadline to tell schools ure not coming is May 15, so hopefully people will withdraw?!

Having a hard time finding a place to live? Check out the apartment guide that the Class of 2011 put out last year @ www.mmcstudents.org. The Class of 2012 will be putting out one at the end of this month so check back then as well.

...and whatever apartment you choose to go with, do mention that you heard about it through Meharry's apt guide!

Any questions that are not related to the waitlist (not privy to such information), I would be happy to answer!

I wish finding an apartment was my biggest problem! This wait is torture!

Has anyone contacted Mr. Mosely recently about the wait list to find out if there has been any movement? I called last week and got his voice mail I think I am going to try today.

Yea he said that 10 people have been accepted off the wait list and they have been contacted already. He was really helpful. He told me that as spots open up he tells the committee and they discuss who they want to admit. So all we can do now is hope and pray. I will be applying here next year if I am not lucky enough to get off of the wait list I fell in love with the school.

I just found out today that I was accepted into the post-bac program. The program starts June 9th. Does anyone have any suggestions about moving or about the program.

Question... The calendar on the website says the white coat ceremony is August 22, but in the packet Meharry mailed it lists the white coat ceremony as taking place on August 21st. Does anybody know the real date?
