    Please post the secondary questions once you receive them. Check last year's thread in the 2017-2018 SSD forum for last year's questions, they tend to not change very much from year to year.

    Good luck to everyone applying!

    Excited to apply here this cycle! I've heard and read great things about Meharry's MD program.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this, but I was curious about some insight into the school, the programs, student body, etc.. It has relatively low average GPA and MCAT scores compared to other MD programs. I seem to only be able to find information about it on SDN forums from 2003-20014, so I was looking for some current advice or knowledge about it.

    I took my MCAT in July last year and was accepted to Meharry. I did submit my application earlier than July (so it was verified before my MCAT was released). I also submitted my secondary ASAP after receiving it. Good luck! Everyone was nice and I really liked my interviews.

    Secondary received also! Can anyone post the essays please. I don't want to click the link to start my secondary yet until I'm ready to submit since they only want it started once.

    No one has access to the essays yet as far as I know.

    Also, you don't have to complete it in one sitting. From the CollegeNet email:
    "Multi-session Form Completion

    Since ApplyWeb lets you save your data, you don't have
    to complete a form in one sitting or from the same
    computer. You can start the form from this computer,
    work on the next section a week later from the library,
    counselor's office or elsewhere."

    Just received my MCAT score. To be honest, it was pretty disappointing (498). I know the MCAT score Meharry takes isn't super high, but my score makes me doubt if i am currently a good fit for Med school. Since I already submitted my primary application, do you guys think I should continue with the secondary application (if I get one) or should I wait for next year's cycle since I will reset and retake the exam early next year to make sure I am super prepared this time? Someone please private message me to give me some advice...

    Apply, you are right on target for their stats. Just write killer essays which shouldn't be too hard if Meharry's secondary essays are the same two from last year.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone have the MSAR data for Meharry. I keep hearing that Meharry takes lower stats, but so far, I don’t know anyone who has gotten an interview with a MCAT below 503

    I added this school on to my AMCAS on 7/16. Haven't heard anything back since the confirmation email. Should I take this as a rejection or are they still working out the secondary portal? KY resident, MCAT 506/cGPA 3.87

    They're still working on the portal I think or at least haven't sent out the new link. Don't take anything as a rejection yet it is still really early in the game.

    Hey guys, I emailed admissions and they said:

    Please excuse the previous email containing the secondary application. Secondary applications will be accessible after August 1, 2018.

    Which is today! yay!

    Whats the general though on the video interview? Think it would be better to discuss informally or off a written script?

    Had the same problem. Make sure your input volume is turned up and ambient noise reduction is turned off. I'm on a mac and it solved the issue for me.

    Yep. You can rewatch your recording and do over as many times as you'd like.
