What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I've been at Emory forever and was not really considering the school as a viable option because I want to move away for a while. My interview day (the longest but most enjoyable of all six so far) had me convinced that I NEED to go to Emory for medical school. Everything was great! The new building is gorgeous and there is a great variety of hospitals for gaining hands-on experience. The school also has great partnerships, especially for those of us interested in public health and global opportunities." -Posted 01/13/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospitals are a little spread out, but (little known fact), there are shuttles from the university to every one of them. One student was a little off-putting but he has nothing to do with the interview day." -Posted 01/13/2009 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the day would complicate my decision even further. It was amazing! And I got to see Grady from a completely different perspective." -Posted 01/13/2009 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"One interview is one-on-one and the other is a group interview (3 interviewees, 3 interviewers). Don't be stressed about the group interview because questions are directed to individuals. It's a laid-back day so enjoy it!" -Posted 01/13/2009 | Report Response
