What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Emory interviews in both a one-on-one basis and also a group interview. I thought the one-on-one interview went extremely well and the interviewer attemped to put me at ease. However, the group interview just seems to naturally be awkward, unlike the one-on-one interview the interviewers were somewhat colder and seemed to be there for their questions only. Each of the group interviewers merely asked all three applicants the same question right in a row. Don't worry if you think that you wished you said what the other applicants are currently saying or that they are using your "good answer," because everyone feels that way...just stay calm and confident. The interviewers only have access to your AMCAS personal statement so be sure to give it a look over once before going to interview." -Posted 02/08/2007 | Report Response
