What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING: Beautiful campus and facilities, great community feel, genuine personal attention and concern from the staff, interviewers and students, long tour but we saw a lot. I thought Emory was fantastic and it's definitely one of my top choices." -Posted 10/01/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Costs a lot." -Posted 10/01/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"REALLY wear comfortable shoes for the walking tour; the Emory people are really laid-back and could care less how you look when you're walking around the campus and downtown medical center. You will have some free time and will also be expected to talk about yourself, so think about what you'd like the panel to know about you before you go in. Really no need to be nervous, the people there are extremely nice and strive to make the day fun and stress-free." -Posted 10/01/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Got to the health science center about 10 minutes early, mingled and had cookies/drinks. Then an orientation session with the very entertaining admissions staff. We split up into two groups and mine went on the tour first: around parts of the medical campus, the general campus, and then downtown to Grady Hospital. Lunch in Grady cafeteria, then an individual interview with a faculty member and a group interview with two other applicants, the same 4th year who was the tour guide, and two faculty members. Then you can sit in on classes (I went to a whole PBL session which was great)." -Posted 10/01/2005 | Report Response
