What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student host. She was awesome, I highly recommend the program. In the morning the group was split in half. I did my interviews right away and that was great so I didn't have to stress for the rest of the day and I wasn't tired during the interview. We got a talk and short presentation from one of the Deans, he is really funny and the admissions coordinator is awesome. Everyone makes you feel comfy, just relax. I had a one-on-one interview first and it was very general, tell me about yourself, your family, why medicine, why emory type questions. The second was a three-on-three and it was easy, but had more specific questions. I thought the three on three was easier because the questions were specific to your experience so you weren't competing with the other applicants like I imagined. After the interview we got lunch at Grady, they paid for it and got a tour. Tour was ok, by that time my mind was already made up that I loved the place so it wasn't that important to me.
