    Has anyone had an interview at Meharry this year? If so, what did they ask you? Do you remember any specifics? Did they discuss grades? Did they discuss DAT scores? What would you do differently? Were you accepted? How long did it take to hear back after your interview?

    Thanks!!

    -My interview is Jan 20th!

    Grades and DAT were discussed. Why you want to be a dentist, why they should pick you. I was rejected after my interview, even though one of the interviewers told me outright that he was going to recommend me for acceptance. I am not URM.

    Had an early December interview (or mid-december), grades and DAT scores where discussed. Why you want to be a dentist? what do you think is most important to do/prepare in order to succeed in dental school... and some questions about your personal statement...

    They recommend Maxwell Millennium house hotel! Its affordable and the rooms are really nice. There's also a bus that takes you to the school and back. Congrats on your interview! :)

    Yes good luck on your interview* Im new to SDN..when they put received/under review to complete.....does that mean an interview is to follow? You would think complete is before under review but its not..it now says "complete" but I havent heard anything back yet. Its been a week, its tough waiting....any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
