First of all, to the original poster, congratulations on your acceptances. Secondly, I dont know what this pyramid system thing is about, never heard of it. Here at howard everyone has the opportunity to pass. If you score above 70% on an exam, you pass, period. Whether everyone does is a different matter. I dont know much about Meharry but I know here at howard, we are also a tightknit group. We watch out for each other and help each other and everyone is really nice. If anyone has any specific questions about howard, you can PM me or post here or whatever.verbalassasin said:Howard? I would choose meharry. Howard has two reputations. They are supposed to be the better of the HBC's in medical educatuion, but from student feedback they leave you hanging with there pyramid system where the lower 10% must fail. Meharry will do all it can to make you a competent doctor. It depends on you.
