What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with Emory, and this somewhat surprised me. The interviewees had done amazing things, many had been out of school for a few months, and the majority had international experience. The majority were also friendly and noncompetitive. The school seems like a wonderful place for people who want to focus in global health and earn an MD/MPH. I think Emory will help you reach your goals, especially if you want to do something somewhat nontraditional. Their curriculum seems well-suited for people who like to think outside the box and create their own path. In addition, the school itself is gorgeous!! " -Posted 12/10/2008 | Report Response
