What impressed you positively?

"I went to emory undergrad, so I knew everything I wanted to know going in. The clinical experience at Grady is awesome, the campus is beautiful and all undergrad and grad facilities are joined. New med school classrooms are on the way in the next few years, and the school has mad research dollars and a great public health program. Damn near every worthwhile health advocacy group (CDC, Carter Center, American Cancer Society, etc) is stationed in Atlanta. They slam the boards and have an impressive matchlist. Atlanta is a great town for young people. and the indoor climbing wall at the gym rox :) The graduate community is awesome and throws lots of mixers between all the schools. I heard rumors of Emory financial problems before which I just have to laugh at. The school has some serious deep pockets and the campus has literally doubled in size the last 5 years." -Posted 02/06/2003 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The big downer about Emory is their pre clinical curriculum is pretty traditional. They dont have a ton of lecture time but they have block testing and straight letter grading, and I know my friends there are hyper stressed come exam time. You must have a car to live in Atlanta, no matter what anyone tells you." -Posted 02/06/2003 | Report Response

"nothing" -Posted 02/06/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were very low stress. The panel interview was kinda silly cause their was little group interaction, but it still wasnt stressful at all. The day is LONG, and seriously, bring a change of shoes, cause the tour will take you through parts emory's main rolling hill campus and to Grady Memorial, which is a montrosity of a healthcare complex. You really have to make sure you'd want to work in an indigent patient base to go there, cause Grady is a huge part of the medical education at Emory." -Posted 02/06/2003 | Report Response
