Hello Everyone 

I am a current student at Mercer and I would love to answer any questions that would help you in your application process. Even though I can't tell you exactly what they will ask you on interview day, I can help you understand what we are looking for as a program ! And for all of you who need more info on Mercer or more info on what it's like being a student at Mercer, I can help with that too. Just let me know! Also, follow our instagram ! @mercerpa2021

What is the program looking for in a prospective student? Trying to prepare for an interview!

Mercer looks for a well rounded applicant. Someone who can bring a new uniqueness and flair to the program and to the field. It's not all about the grades with them. Even after you get accepted, they make sure to maintain an atmosphere that is less about grades and more about who you are professionally and how you're understanding the information they present to you. So I would encourage people to stand out and be memorable. Your grades are honestly just so they can have a baseline to make sure you can handle studying the workload you'll have. After that, they want to know that they'll be able to mold you into a great provider. The only way they'll know that is if you show them what they have to work with regarding your personality and your mentality.

 

I hope that makes sense.

Good Luck to everyone who has an interview tomorrow! I'll be there with other classmates to help ease the nerves. Remember, when you go on interviews you are essentially interviewing us as well, so if you have any questions about the school or student life, feel free to ask us !

I did as well! But this time they didn’t specify when they would email us again so I wonder when they will let us know

That’s what I was wondering too. I guess May is the latest?

I believe it's in May, so maybe June would be the absolute latest we would hear back. I think I actually remember them saying that at the interview as well.

There is a girl in our class that got accepted in October. So it could go as far as then but they would update you

Anyone out there not heard from Mercer other than initial verification of all parts of their application?

I haven’t heard anything yet. I tried calling and they recommended I applied for the next cycle, once I take the GRE for the third time... I haven’t gotten a rejection letter so there’s still hope for me...
