What impressed you positively?

"Very organized (erica black does a great job!). Grady is a great place to learn. Small class size (112) fosters closeness and cooperation. Amazing athletic/recreation center. " -Posted 11/17/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The day was too long. They could have condensed it down a little bit. I'm a little apprehensive about their "joint" exams, but supposedly they prepare you better for the boards." -Posted 11/17/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't fall victim to this, but try not to bring non-Coke products to the school. They don't have any shame in bringing up the fact that the school is supported by Coke money." -Posted 11/17/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day is long, but very organized. The interview group is fairly small, only 18-20 or so. There are two interviews, with one being a one on one, the other a panel interview with 3 on 3. The panel interview was a little awkward for me because it was the first time I had ever experienced that. Also, it was harder to open up my personal side in front of other interviewees. You either have your interviews in the morning or afternoon, with the LONG tours comprising the other half. You are shuttled to Grady Memorial Hospital, where you have lunch. Grady is an incredible place to do your clinical training. Overall, I had a great time at Emory. By the way, the campus is absolutely beautiful and actually has that college feel." -Posted 11/17/2004 | Report Response
