What do you guys think?? I am very interested in attending both schools. Does anyone know of any pros and cons of either?? Thanks
Hey ladies!! I got into meharry!! I got the letter about 2 weeks post- interview so you all who just interviewed should be hearing soon!
As for your question, I didn't apply to Howard but I have some good friends who go there and really like it. I really liked the supportive environment at Meharry as well as the small class size. I didn't apply to Howard because I was trying to save every dollar I could...haha.
Howard has a very strained relationship with the NIH for reasons anyone could guess, but as an alum of the NIH, I have to conceed that racism probably plays a small role in that. OTOH, some Howard reseachers are reluctant to work with folks at the NIH because as one professor there told me, the NIH always tries to take over things. Again, this could go back to racism and/or the disoriganization that seems so prevelant at Howard.I am not totally sure on this one, but I always thought that Howard received more funding from NIH. I kind of vaguely remember hearing about this when I interviewed down there. Well, I'll check on this.
