"Relate a childhood story."
"Tell us something about yourself that we wouldnt know just reading your application."
"Why do you want to come to Emory"
"Tell us a memorable story from your childhood. This one kinda caught me off guard."
"Describe how you stay healthy. This was then followed up by "what if i was to tell you that isn't enough." Fun times."
"Read over AMCAS, Apps, SDN etc. The usual."
"The biggest impression I got was how happy all the students all seemed. Everyone had nothing but positive things to say about their experience at Emory, and by the end of the day you really feel you would be happy there. Erica, the Assistant Director of Admissions, was amazingly friendly and helpful, providing cookies and coke to everyone there. She made sure you felt comfortable during the whole experience, and really did make the day "almost fun." Erica was also kind enough to bring out a space heater upon request. "
"Weather wasn't great, otherwise it was a great visit."
"Not many suprises. "
"Day started early, and went rather late, so be prepared for a long day. In the morning there were two interviews, a group interview with 2 other applicants in front of 2 faculty members and 1 student. There was a combination of general questions (talk about family, why emory) directed to all 3 of us, as well as directed questions taken directly from personal statements. For both interviews, the personal statements were available to read, however my one on one interview, the interviewer had not read over my statement. In between the interviews and afterwards there is some down time outside the admissions office, and there were always current students around to answer questions. Following the interviews there is a short tour of Emory's campus, hten a shuttle ride to Grady hospital where lunch is provided. After the tour of the hospital, you return to campus and the day is over. "
