Has anyone heard from Meharry other than the initial email that your application is under review? Or did you have to pay a supplemental fee?
 
No, I still have not heard anything or received their supplemental.

Received the supplemental today as well!
 
Received my supplemental application invite yesterday as well. Is it sent to everyone?

Nontraditional

App Submitted: 8/17
Finalized: 9/12(hounded LORs since June...smh)

DAT: 20AA, TS18, 17BIO, 18GC, 19OC, 26R, 20QR, 17PAT
Overall GPA: 3.15
Science: 2.97

Interview Invite: 10/9
Dates: 10/24-25(Virtual)

Interview was conversational. They sent an email to pick a week in October, and during that week your interviewers will call to setup the meeting. Had 2 virtual interviews. Was a bit hectic since they scheduled interviews during their daily schedule, so just be aware if you work. Overall a good experience.

Edit: Didn't give gpa context. Got burned out in undergrad and made some mistakes. Ended up teaching for a few years and doing a post bacc(3.5) and smedp(B-Recommended)

Good Morning Everyone! I just finished my first interview with Meharry and wanted to shed some light on my experience so far!!

Traditional Applicant
App Submitted: 8/5
App Finalized: 8/8

DAT: 19AA, TS 20, 21 BIO, 21 GC, 19 Orgo, 20 RC, 19 PAT, and 15 QR
Overall GPA: 3.90
Science GPA: 3.84

Notified about Interview: 10/25
Interview Period I selected: 11/28-12/1


I had picked to have a later interview period only because I am a division one college student athlete in the middle of my season, so I wanted to wait until after my season was over for my interviews. Although I picked the later interview date, one of my interviewers reached out about doing an interview this week, so I just took the opportunity. Overall, I had an amazing experience with my first one! My interviewer was very nice and it really was conversational. It is clear that they really want to get to know you as a person outside of whats on your application to ensure that you fit within their mission. I will be sure to update this when I have my second interview. Good luck everyone!!!!

thanks! do you know if meharry offers merit aid when they offer admission or after?
I am not sure. I know fafsa is being weird this year, and that may be why schools are a bit more behind on that. My impressions were that a lot of dental schools offer scholarships around acceptance day, but I haven't really seen that this year.
