Hello Camrichie,I received my acceptance about two weeks ago. I am just waiting on the information package to come. What is everyones plans when school starts, re: housing, what your bring to nashville, etc, etc, etc.....
Approx. 2 wks. I got it by email first and then they sent a letter.Hi camrichis,
How long after your acceptance e-mail did it take to get your stuff in the mail. I'm going on 6 days and still nothing. Also, any luck finding good housing?
RIGHT ON!! - Bring on that 100% First time USMLE Steps 1 & 2 Pass Rate for our class!1. CONGRATS everyone!!! You know we're gonna be the best class right?!
4. Does anyone else think the faculty is going to be hilarious???
Is there a lot of smoking in Nashville? Yes - I admit it, I haven't spent much time in the South, South East, etc. Smoking is nearly banned where I am, so I don't have much experience with it anymore...My only problem is that the person 2 floors down smokes and it's been seeping into my apartment and management ahsn't been able to fix the problem sufficiently. So I'm moving to a house where I don't share a wall with anyone.
Not at all - the real question is - will it be hard to find roomates you can live with?!?!?!Do you think it would be hard to find a roommate?
I wouldn't say that there's a lot of smoking. I think there was a recent smoking ban, but it doesn't include shared residences. And I haven't been able to find an apartment complex with a no-smoking policy or no-smoking buildings.Is there a lot of smoking in Nashville?

I've been wondering the same thing. All I know is that they have a kitchen with a stove and fridge. Do any current students have any pics of the rooms?Can anyone in Nashville tell us what the towers are like? I put in an application but did not have the time to see them during my visit.
According to the Banner Secure Web LogIn... Under the Award Payment Schedule Title in the Financial Aid Tab it is showing the Stafford loans to have an expected date of 06/19/2009 and 12/31/2009. I am not seeing the GradPlus loan because I didn't accept it...does anyone know the exact date when fin aid gets dispersed?
That is totally right... Saturday, August 22 - not Monday, August 10According to that link, the WCC is on August 22nd. First year classes resume on August 10th. Just thought I'd clear that up before rumors start and everyone gets confused and makes plans.
There's a student in my class from Egypt as well. You guys should link up!Hello,
I am postgraduate student from Egypt. I will be in Nashville June the 3rd to have my studies in Meharry medical collage.
I think sharing a place will not be a bad idea if you agree.
you may contact me if you want asking for my personal email
You can still meet other black med students through SNMA events. At the ACP conference there was a reception for African American physicians which was really nice.I'm kinda upset now that I didnt at least go to my interview...It wouldve been nice to at least see other Blacks who are interested in medicine and to check out the school...I guess Howard and Morehouse didnt WHOO and I didnt give Meharry a chance!
I am looking into housing in the Fisk/Meharry area and was considering a corpus urbana project. What is about them you find shady so that I know what I am dealing with? Any pertinent ancedotes? Thanks!The plans that my roommate and I had fell through (Beware or Corpus Urbana... shady business they run). Anyways, we found a beautiful home that's less than 5 mins from school. It's a large (2100 sq ft) 3 bedroom house and its amazing. It has 2.5 bathrooms. The 2 smaller rooms are equal sized and they are barely smaller than the master room. The kitchen has granite counter tops and it's quite large. There is a patio in the back with a fenced in yard and a porch on the side of the house. The area is mostly young professionals.
We're looking for a girl, non smoker with no pets (sorry, I'm allergic to everything). If you're interested send me a PM and I'll give you my email address so we can correspond, send pictures, etc.
Let me know soon. We want to get our application in quickly.
