What are your general comments?

"It was pretty great overall. I am completely sold. I know it's been said before but Dr. Schwartz and Erica Black are almost too amazing for words. You arrive at the admissions office at 7.45am and your day is pretty much planned out from that moment until 4.30-5pm. We all have a mini introduction and then split up into two groups. There were 18 of us interviewing. I had the morning tour and afternoon interviews which was good since I really got a chance to look around and get a feel for the place. Turns out it's really a comfortable place for a school with such amazingly intelligent persons. You have lunch in Grady hospital (really good lunch, I think my whole group was pretty pleased with the choices offered). It was pretty much just a nice day..felt like vacation to me and I enjoyed meeting a whole bunch of nice ppl from all over the country. (The other applicants were really nice and not cocky or anything about their accomplishments...a pretty cool, humble group)" -Posted 10/09/2006 | Report Response
