"Never go to this school unless its your last option maybe better than Caribbean. But the big 4 Caribbean are obviously posting strong matches. Pass rate drop to 67% in 2016, they took it on students and instituted a very useless attendance and activity policy that just waste students time. I gained nothing from their mandatory lectures besides being tired and not having enough personal time to grasp concepts. Avoid this disorganized institution if you can unless you want to spend so much for poor education. They really don't know what they are doing. PHD lecturers teach things that don't correlate step and these lectures also waste your time. So when time comes for step, you are not ready nether did you have the time to learn quality outside resources"

"The absolute best quality of the MD program is the incredible amount of support available to you throughout your academic career. including financial support in the form of scholarships. Faculty and staff are constantly advocating on behalf of the student, even when the students is not aware. One con is regardless of your learning style, faculty expect and often mandate lecture attendance in contrast with most other medical schools. For this reason, the school is not open to upgrading technology to accommodate video recorded lectures and virtual lectures."

"If you want to pursue a medical school, there really are no cons. I mean the school is not in the safest area, but security is awesome so we've never had an incident. Meharry will give you the MD degree you are pursuing, and it does a fantastic job doing it. Meharry does it's job, so as long as you're willing to work for that board score, it'll happen."

"My graduate program embraces the idea of everyone surviving together. This makes medical school bearable. Knowing my classmates and professors want the best for me and will help me in a time of need makes the competitive nature of medical school less daunting."

"Meharry is one of the smaller medical schools in the US, and with that Meharry is able to provide a more family-like and personal educational experience to all the students. Professors are usually always willing to spend extra time in and outside of class explaining concepts, reviewing material, and providing good counsel. I think it is these nurturing qualities of Meharry that allows it to produce both compassionate and skilled health professionals that go on to serve all around the country. In comparison to some of the larger medical schools, Meharry lacks some of the resources that these schools obtain easier because of its status as a small school. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time thus far at Meharry, and look forward to finishing my education here at Meharry."

"Pros of this school are definitely the students. These students are passionate about the underserved and destitute as well as medicine and science. The students are chosen not for their grades but for their passion and backgrounds. It has been noted that those from lower income backgrounds are more likely to reach out to others of the same class after receiving their M.D. degree for many reasons and some unexplained ones too. Meharry has given students chances to be bright and stellar physicians for not only the poor but the nation. Graduates from this school have greatly contributed in the past to medicine. The cons are due to the fact that the school is not well to do income wise as well as lacking in certain departments in regards to academics leaving the students to seek outside resources in preparing themselves."
