What impressed you positively?

"The school is unbelievable nice, even nicer than I expected. In fact, its the nicest campus I've ever been to. Grady is huge and anyone can be treated there whether they have insurance or not (I saw a prisoner walking down the hall like a penguin in his handcuffs and shackles). Can be automatically accepted to MPH if you want to do that, and its a great place to go for public health." -Posted 11/12/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. The day was pretty long, yet "almost fun". It's hard to find a pepsi one in coca cola country, and erica might not let you bring it in even if you found one (she is very nice though). " -Posted 11/12/2004 | Report Response

"Noting really. All of the suprises were good, but I expected to like the school." -Posted 11/12/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Emory is a great school. The campus is beautiful. It is sort of in a suburban area but is only a few minutes away from downtown Atlanta, so you don't have to deal with the hustle and bustle of a big city yet you are close to where there is something to do. The interviews are both relaxed. Duiring the group interview we each got asked 2 of the same questions (tell me about yourself/why med/when decide med and what kind of group activities would you engage in with your classmates) and 2 questions directed to us individually (the seem to try to draw questions from your application, they clearly did for the other two interviewees).
