Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring guests?

Each student may bring one guest, such as a parent or guardian.

What should I wear?

You will be interviewing with business faculty, so we recommend business attire. Since you will be inside and outside, check the weather before you come.

How should I prepare?

Beyond getting a good night’s sleep and eating a hearty breakfast, we recommend just being yourself.

You can expect to receive results from the weekend within 3-4 weeks after the event. You will receive official notification via a mailed letter.

This scholarship will replace any merit scholarship offer you have already received from Mercer.

Will I get to meet faculty?

Yes! Throughout the day, you will interact with faculty, students, and even some Mercer Business alumni.
