Hi all,

I interviewed in late Feb. as well, and have not heard anything. Meharry is a great school, and I'm anxious to know if their feelings are reciprocated :)

All the best to those of you who are still waiting :luck:

....That's funny, I would assume that it was because you don't have a 4.0 GPA and a 40 on the MCAT...

Hey no problemo... I hope you get admission!! :)

It is a great school no doubt. I was impressed by the facilities they had and the students and profs i met seemed really enthusiastic. Furthermore, If i remember correctly, they had some uslme toppers at their school.

I got into my 1st choice, so im not waiting on meharry.

Mrs. Fischer is at the fron desk and Mrs. Davis is downstairs as today is some Match day something-or-rather.

She said she would call back, but, it sounds like they are busy today. Let's keep calling until we have news. Somebody else call or will call today?

I called yesterday to find out if letters were sent. However, the person I spoke with forwarded me to Ms. Davis's telephone answering machine, where no one picked up. I left a message for someone to get back to me, but I haven't gotten anything.

Patience, indeed, is a virtue. All I can do is continue to pray...

Hey futrorthodr, I'm happy that we met during the interview. Now, I can put a name to a face :)

Hey all,

I just spoke with Mr. Mosley (or is it, Moseley?). Anyway, he informed me that they won't really start taking people off the waiting list until they're done interviewing, which will be around the first week of MAY (can you believe that???)

But yeah, I've been on the w.list since late November. Good luck to all those still waiting!

btw, if you were really interested in going to Meharry, I would send them a LOI...I've heard it works well (but obviously, only send it it meharry is your first choice)

Good luck!

hey guys-

I got put on the 'acceptance range' mid-january. when I talked to Mr. Mosley around February, he told me that they had already given out 40 acceptances thus far. We also have to remember that there are 20 students from the post-bac program matriculating Fall 2004. Which leaves 20, I guess, open spots. That was mid Febuary so I dont know what has happened thus far. Does anyone know of people put into the 'acceptance range' and been accepted already?? Just curious b/c Mr. Mosley said anyone can be reviewed again who's in the 'range' and be accepted at anytime.

It's like that Blues Travler song... "why you wanna give me the run around...."

Anyway, I have joined you all to burn on the range until they cherry pick all the perfect candidates.

I think chances are pretty bleak personally for me. I wonder how many of us they reject, accept waitlist and hold? what is this all about?

LOI, smell-do-I, this stinks...

i don't believe Morehouse or Meharry are in the business of
choosing "perfect candidates". (whatever that is)
the only people i know who have
already been accepted to these schools are BLACK MEN.
since they are a rare commodity in medicine to begin with
and if they have the credentials to get into either school
will probably be accepted into any school they apply to.
they were most likely quickly recruited and offered acceptances to M & M.

...just thinking with my head and not my heart :)

Hey there futrorthodr, I'm so sorry :( Have you gained acceptances from any other medical school? Will you be going to one of them? Or will you try to get off of Meharry's acceptance range?

On this end, I haven't received anything :) You and I interviewed on the same day, and so I was almost certain that I would have received something from them today, as well. What state are you in (if you don't mind sharing)?

Hey I am in Tenn just down the street from Meharry so that is probably why i got it so quick. The letter was postmarked the 17th. I have now added Meharry to my list of 4 waitlists. I however have also heard that quite a few people get placed in the acceptance range before getting an acceptance. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Do you remember the different options that Dr. Moseley said our app. could be placed in post interview??

Hey futrorthodr,

Aside from the acceptance range/waitlist/rejection options, I'm uncertain as to what other options may be available. Perhaps it would be best to contact Mr. Mosley directly about this? :confused:

I am just confused at to what the acceptance range truly means? Is is the nice way of saying waitlist or is it something everyone gets placed in before being accepted? In searching old posts regarding Meharry I could not find one person who was outright accepted, but I found many who got the acceptance range letter, and then got an acceptance a few weeks later. :confused:

Oh by the way good luck and let me know if things turn out well for you :D

Also if anyone has received an immediate acceptance without first being put in the acceptance range please let me know :)

hi there,

I just checked the "Meharry Interviews in February" thread, and a poster by the name of Curiosity32 received an acceptance within 2 weeks after being interviewed last year when he applied.

http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=110472&highlight=Meharry


Also, it appears that I made a tiny error :p There is no such thing as a wait list, as far as I can see. It's either: acceptance/acceptance range (similar to a waitlist)/rejection.

Yeah I saw that too but he is the only one out another person. I believe GR42 said he got an acceptance and then was asked if he was put in acceptance range first and he/she said yeah??

I completely empathize with you :) The only poster who currently attends Meharry and frequently comes on SDN is my good friend, divinemsm (I think you'll see that she made several posts on the link I attached). She actually came out during my interview day to say hello. She's awesome :love: :love:

Anyhow, she's been very informative, and I'm going to send her a PM to see if she can give some clarification on the "acceptance range" dilemma :)

Docjolly,

Hey I was just checking to see if you had gotten any good news from Meharry today??

Regarding our discussion about the acceptance range I think that it is possible to be immediately accepted, but it seems to me that most students are placed in the acceptance range first. I talked to 5 students that currently attend and 4/5 first got the acceptance range letter, and the other couldnt remember so I guess all hope is not lost.

Okay, so I just ran to my mailbox, and received the letter from Meharry. I have been placed and ranked within the Acceptance Range. I'm happy about this because, thank God, it's not an outright rejection :D Nevertheless, I will send a letter of interest to Meharry ASAP. I really liked Nashville and the school, and I would be very happy to go there :love:

I wish all the best to those of you who are waiting to get off of the acceptance range, and even to those of you who haven't heard anything...May God's blessings and peace be with you :)

Well, now I completely agree with you. As LoveDoc pointed out to me during one of our conversations, it would not make sense for such a small school to offer acceptances outright to anyone, especially knowing that Meharry seems to be a "fall back" school for many applicants (This, of course, is NOT the case for me :) ). It would be both a waste of time and energy. They want the truly interested students (those who will send in fall grades, send letters of intent, contact them incessantly, show amazing interest in their school) to step forward and prove how badly they want to attend Meharry. I think this is very interesting, and it makes me want to go to Meharry all the more :love:

Well, I think they mention this because, perhaps at some later point, they will review, once again, most/all applications placed within the acceptance range to determine who will finally receive an acceptance, and who will not..

I have no complaints. I think it's time for me to step up to the plate and show them how much I'd like to go there :cool:

It seems to me that most of you are very concerned about what the acceptance range means(which is understandable). Let me tell you that I have yet to meet anyone in my class that was accepted right of the bat w/o being put in the acceptance range first. If you are in the acceptance range you are in good position. Acceptances are offered until the day school starts. I say that because I know A few of my classmates that were notified by phone a few days after school had already started because some other people had decided to either attend another school or don't go to med school.
Anyway, I wish you all good luck and don't loose your hopes!

Even though Mr. Moseley said they had given out 40 acceptances he also stated that each yr they usually give out from a 100-150 acceptances to fill the class. So in other words do NOT trip and lets God do his thing.

I too am a waitlist victim. I propose that when we get into this school we have a waitlist party. No people that got accepted right off the bat are allowed to come. By the way it sounds it will only be a couple people anyways so its all good :eek: . I wonder though if you are being considered as a post-bacc program candidate if we will/ would have been disclosed so or not or if they too are included in this "range". If anyone knows please do respond.
