What are your general comments?

"You are a part of a relatively small interview group, about 10-12. Everyone has a 1-on-1 interview with a faculty member that is open file and then there's a group interview (2 faculty, M4, and 3 applicants) that is closed file. During the group interview, they ask very generic questions (why medicine, why Emory, what do you do for fun, etc) and then they read your file after you leave the room. 1/2 the applicants will have morning tour and afternoon interviews and the other 1/2 will have a reverse schedule. One M4 takes you to Grady Hospital, where you have lunch and tour the facilities. This M4 will also be on the panel in the group interview. " -Posted 11/21/2006 | Report Response
