What impressed you negatively?

"Everything seemed rushed and a bit disorganized. Some of the people (at least my fellow applicants) reminded me of the pretentious pre-meds at my school. Like the poster before me, I also felt that the admissions folk were actively recruiting the tokens amongst the candidates. I did not like the fact that our student tour guide was also our interviewer, and said person had already formed an impression of us by the time we actually interviewed, whereas the other interview group (the morning group) did not have this experience. Basically the group interview is crap... there's little to no group "interaction"... I felt like I wasn't being as candid as I am used to. Their propoganda about the Woodruff Scholarships was incorrect... Coca-Cola did not provide the largest donation ever to an educational institution... that tax write-off belongs to Wal-Mart and its $300 million dollar donation to the University of Arkansas. So again, I sort of have to agree with the previous poster about Emory's unwarranted elitism. But hey, I will take their money if they offer it." -Posted 01/20/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Emory admits over half the class from in-state. The MD/MPH program takes an additional year. The individual interview is sort of meaningless, since that person has no vote on the committee." -Posted 01/20/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Emory spoils their students, that was pretty obvious, but something about them was lacking... it's hard to describe... maybe "plasticized" would be a good word to describe the general atmosphere... " -Posted 01/20/2004 | Report Response
