What other programs are still accepting applications?
**Edit** Marian (Has an Osteopathic Medical school) is still accepting applications for their masters. -- DO NOT apply for masters program. Look at the student reviews for it on SDN and you'll see that it's trash lol


Also Columbia's post bacc is still accepting too. They still are flooding e-mails as well.

FYI, I read about the Marian program here on SDN and current students had a lot of negative to say.

Also, did anyone at all on the waitlist try to call to confirm that our positions on the waitlist are indeed unranked??
When I spoke to admissions they said they couldn’t give out information pertaining to the amount of ppl on the waitlist. I also ask since it’s unranked how do y’all go about selecting people and dude was just like we go to the application pool and just select ppl based off of a holistic review of each applicant so basically no real specific answer. I’m not putting my life on hold for them when I submitted my app within 24 hrs of receiving it in March. Clearly they do whatever cause that’s not “priority”.

Thanks for this info... ugh this is frustrating because this could go on all the way until the start date and I am pretty far away from TN (as I know many others are as well) so moving would def. take time :(

Good morning y’all. Those who have already been accepted, if y’all don’t mind me asking, how many people are currently in the group me? I know everybody doesn’t have Facebook, and I just kinda wanted to gauge my waitlist chances if the program is supposed to be for 100 people.
I got accepted last week and I drove to Nashville last week and went to Meharry's office to talk to some people in person. I couldn't reach anyone on the phone and had some questions. I found out that during the summer some of the offices close early. For example, Finacial Aid had signs saying they were only open from Monday to Friday 8am to 1 pm. I was on campus at 9 am and the doors to the building did not open until 10am. So you may want to try calling around 10am to catch someone. Also, I only saw a few people working in Admissions while I was there. The day I visited Campus was also the day Medical school orientation was going on, so that could have been why I did not see that many people too. I assume most of Admissions was running the Orientation for the medical school students that day.

Also, talking with Meharry staff members they mentioned that the campus is run by a small group of Staff during the Summer. It looked like they had one student worker answering all the phone calls for Financial Aid and Admissions (which is all in the same building). She also greets everyone coming the office, and is the receptionists for Admissions and Financial Aid. I was there for a few hours and the phones NEVER stopped ringing. She was answering call, after call, after call and walking students to offices of other staffers that they needed to meet with.

Also, it seemed like a lot of people were on summer vacation too. One of the ladies they recommended I speak to about the MHS program was on summer vacation. They didn't tell me when she would be back. I was able to meet with an Admissions rep, an MHS professor, and Financial Aid person and I got all my questions answered. I have say that the Meharry people I met were very friendly and helpful, but I could tell most of them were super tired and stressed. The little lady in Financial aid told me that she just found out last week that the Admissions committee expanded the MHS program to 100 students. She said in the past they would let in 5-10 students at a time which made things a little less hectic. I think they have been working short-handed and that's why the delays with info about the program.

Also, they are expanding the size of the medical school class next year too.
Also, the professor I met was very kind. When I ran into her she was super busy, but she took the time to talk with me and answer my questions. She gave me great advice on the program, medical school, MCAT, and places to live in Nashville.

The impression I got from Meharry this past week is that they are really trying and doing the best they can. They just don't have enough staff to handle everything. If you can, I would recommend taking a trip to Meharry and talking with admissions or whoever in person. If you are waitlisted, you would want to talk to someone in admissions. If you are accepted, you will want to talk to financial aid and the MHS department. It's really tough to catch them on the phone. If you do call, try calling around 9:30 or 10 am their time to catch someone.

I’m waitlisted and I thought about going down there to talk with admissions but I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the money and time.

I agree the staff at Meharry is super nice. I called them asking about being waitlisted and I was informed that it’s still a very good news because some (already accepted ) and some denied. What I got from this chat was hope and a kind reminder that we have to allow the process to occur and respect it. Everyone on the waiting process just extend your prayers from 2min to 5min I am sure all is well. :)
