    For those who were accepted would you guys like to make a Facebook group or group chat for the rest of the process like financial aid, housing, etc?

    Yea I didn’t apply until November so I’ll probably have to wait a little while before they get to me.

    I know I'm super late but I have my interview tomorrow. Any tips from people who have already interviewed? Preferably, any questions you remember them asking?

    For me it was three different people. The first person was a traditional interview (30 mins) and the other two were MMI (5-10 mins each).

    For the traditional we just talked about my extracurriculars during undergrad such as volunteering and shadowing. I was also asked about how I plan on adjusting with the move since I’m not from TN. It was very natural and easy-going.

    For MMI you walk into the room and read a piece of paper for two minutes and formulate your response. The first one was an acting skit and it was about a mother asking you (dean or something) why her daughter didn’t get accepted even though she had a great MCAT score and GPA . Then she presses you and tries to make you cave in lol. It was really fun cause it’s all acting. I guess they were trying to see your personality as well as testing ethics. The second one was just answering a question about teamwork. The interviewer didn’t really talk much for mine but I don’t think they’re really supposed to for this part as it wasn’t much of a conversation-style question.

    Hope this helped and good luck!

    It went well! Everyone was really friendly and it went exactly like the OP above said it would! They said they are sending decisions within 2 weeks!

    Granted that it is very late in the cycle, did anyone receive a secondary recently?

    I was given an II before starting the secondary but finished it before my actual interview. I got accepted a week after the interview.

    There will be an added section below that says events I think. From there you can schedule your interview. You can also schedule directly from the email they send out. Hope that helps!

    Has anyone received a II without getting an emailing stating that their application is under review? I submitted my secondary in early October but still haven’t received a complete email, only that my secondary has been submitted.

    Was the MMI for all the interviewees? No one has reported MMI format style interview for this school on SDN. I have an interview next week and kinda freaking out about the format now that you said MMI. Please clarify

    I can’t speak for everyone but the people who interviewed on Dec. 10 also had traditional and MMI. Another user replied saying that they had a similar experience a different day so it appears that they are keeping the interview setup relatively similar for everyone. Tbh MMI was easier than the traditional so I wouldn’t worry.

    Does anyone know how admission into the MHS program works? As in, do you need to receive an II to be considered?

    I’m almost certain that every med school requires an interview in order to be accepted

    Oh that was my fault, I was unclear. I was referring to their masters program that they offer to applicants toward the end of the cycle

    Interviewed today.

    In case anyone is wondering/cares, we only had a one on one interview, no MMIs due to our large interview group.

    Also, anyone know if they call if one is accepted? Or just email?

    It was pretty chill I think. They did a little intro, then we waited in a conference room while they called people out to have their interviews. After that we had a Q&A with current students and then took a tour of the campus.

    The actual interview was pretty laid back IMO. It seemed like they were interested in getting to know me more than grilling me about my application flaws. But maybe it depends on what interviewer you get, who knows.

    Overall it was a pretty positive experience. I guess we'll see if they liked me or not. I forgot to ask how long it takes for them to get back to me on an acceptance/rejection/waitlist.

    Hey guys I thought Id drop and ask y'all a question on the MD side. I just got an interview invite for the DDS program at Meharry and wanted to know if they offer invite to MHS after they bring you for an on campus interview. Does MHS have its own interview process separate from MD and DDS?
