The students seemed really laid back (my interview day was actually the day of the first year's joint exam but they all still came out to talk to us and say hello. they were all in pajama's but seemed pretty relaxed considering they were in the middle of an 8-hour exam!) Also, something really important to me, the medical school is fully integrated into the rest of the undergraduate and graduate campus. so you don't have to see brainy med students all day you can drift into a generalized academic community.

Everyone had nothing but positive things to say about their experience at Emory, and by the end of the day you really feel you would be happy there. Erica, the Assistant Director of Admissions, was amazingly friendly and helpful, providing cookies and coke to everyone there. She made sure you felt comfortable during the whole experience, and really did make the day "almost fun." Erica was also kind enough to bring out a space heater upon request. " More from this Member | Report Response

I liked atlanta a lot too. it has more of a suburban feel than i had expected - rather than an overwhelming big city feel. they have amazing resources there too in terms of the CDC, Grady, and the american cancer society etc. emory also has a lot of money and they have a fair amount of scholarships.

Grady is huge and anyone can be treated there whether they have insurance or not (I saw a prisoner walking down the hall like a penguin in his handcuffs and shackles). Can be automatically accepted to MPH if you want to do that, and its a great place to go for public health." More from this Member | Report Response

I would have thought that the students would have been out of there, but they still made us feel comfortable and even offered to drive us to the Marta station (The subway/train). Very friendly.

"I had FUN! It was a long day, but you learn a ton about the school and hospitals, and you get lots of time to speak with current students and fellow interviewees, which I think is the best part of interviews. Med students took every chance they got between classes to come speak to us and answer questions, and Erica Black--the admissions co-director who practically single-handedly steers the whole day--is easily the most amiable and outgoing admissions person I've met at any of my interviews (Emory was my first interview, and I say this in retrospect after 5 other interviews). She made things much less stressful and bounced around talking to us, making sure everything was going well." More from this Member | Report Response

New med school classrooms are on the way in the next few years, and the school has mad research dollars and a great public health program. Damn near every worthwhile health advocacy group (CDC, Carter Center, American Cancer Society, etc) is stationed in Atlanta. They slam the boards and have an impressive matchlist. Atlanta is a great town for young people. and the indoor climbing wall at the gym rox :) The graduate community is awesome and throws lots of mixers between all the schools.

The national headquarters for the CDC and the American Cancer Society are also a block away from the medical school. First, second, third, and fourth year students came by all day to meet us and answer any questions we had, and it was obvious that they all really love Emory; they also seem really well-rounded, no eggheadedness or pomposity. The curriculum seems like a healthy balance between traditional methods and problem-based learning. The interviews themselves were very low-key and focused mainly on my personal interests and background, not at all on academics. The admissions staff stressed that receiving an invitation to interview means they already want you, so the interviews are just a chance to get to know you better and strut their stuff for you. The whole day was actually pretty enjoyable." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The same student who takes you on your tour is the one who interviews you in the group interview, so you definitely feel like you have to remain vigilantly professional while on your tour which is ironic because Emory has the most thorough tour out of any school I've been to.

"New medical school building won't be completed until Fall 2006, but it should be great once it's done. The panel interview was intimidating for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the conditions in Grady are pretty bad. While I would love to practice medicine there, the disparity between their inner city hospital (Grady) and the one servicing the upper class part of town (University Hospital) is ridiculous." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour of Grady wasnt great. It was pretty standard." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is some major construction on the medical school buildings that won't be completed until 2007.

" More from this Member | Report Response

"A,B,C... grading system. Need to take a shuttle to get to Grady (main teaching hospital), Grady seemed like a factory (good or bad for different people's tastes), panel interview was akward and I don't think it's a good way to look at candidates. " More from this Member | Report Response

"many of the labs & classrooms for the next few years will be borrowed from other programs and/or temporary because they are about to demolish & reconstruct a building, i wasn't sure how i felt about the extremely traditional curriculum (subjects taught separately, grades, little emphasis on pbl)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Weather wasn't great, otherwise it was a great visit." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was pretty long. It seemed like they were just trying to have us kill time while the other half of the students were interviewing. Traffic in Atlanta is really bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was too long. They could have condensed it down a little bit. I'm a little apprehensive about their "joint" exams, but supposedly they prepare you better for the boards." More from this Member | Report Response

"i've seen better lecture halls. i've seen worse too, but so much of the rest of the campus is immaculate, except those rooms. also, emory is a little behind in technology. i know of other schools that have lectures on streaming video, give students laptops and pda's, etc" More from this Member | Report Response

"Emory is a very traditional school in the sense that there is a strong separation between the two years of sciences and the two years of medicine. They are slowly starting to integrate more patient contact, but at this point students don't even begin learning how to interview patients until the second semester of their second year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The A-F grading system seems strenuous. Also, the Joints seem unnecessarily difficult. And it was a wet day - the interviewing day began very early (when it was still rather dark) and ended around 4:30, but since it was raining there wasn't much visibility, so I didn't really get a feel for the campus outside." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was raining and cold all day. But the day before and after the interview day was sunny. Weird. The tuition is higher than I thought (average = 51,000 per year). Time to get a summer job. lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"I tried and tried, but found nothing negative. Except that the rec center looked a little run down. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is FULL OF IT. the interviewers were very DISINTERESTED in the students interviewing on the panel. they seemed arrogant and rude, and it shows that the relationship between faculty and students must be less than pleasant mostly. also, students who stopped by were not very impressed and happy at the school. They seemed tired and one even bragged about how he wasted his senior year of college ... The student who led the tour was aloof and full of himself. Made it seem a little bit anti-social and competitive overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"grady hospital was pretty shitty, and the tour guide was also an interviewer, so it was like the entire day was an interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Just had a couple hours to wait between lunch and my interviews in the afternoon, but Erica and current students kept us entertained while we waited." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything seemed rushed and a bit disorganized. Some of the people (at least my fellow applicants) reminded me of the pretentious pre-meds at my school. Like the poster before me, I also felt that the admissions folk were actively recruiting the tokens amongst the candidates. I did not like the fact that our student tour guide was also our interviewer, and said person had already formed an impression of us by the time we actually interviewed, whereas the other interview group (the morning group) did not have this experience. Basically the group interview is crap... there's little to no group "interaction"... I felt like I wasn't being as candid as I am used to. Their propoganda about the Woodruff Scholarships was incorrect... Coca-Cola did not provide the largest donation ever to an educational institution... that tax write-off belongs to Wal-Mart and its $300 million dollar donation to the University of Arkansas. So again, I sort of have to agree with the previous poster about Emory's unwarranted elitism. But hey, I will take their money if they offer it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Emory seems to be very full of themselves. I got news for them; Emory Ain't all that. You would think the fith largest endowment for Universities, They would be ranked higher than they are. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were terrible. The faculty interviewer didn't appear to be paying attention to answers and was very distant. The group interview, while not stressful, was useless. The school didn't learn anything new about me over the two interviews nor seemed to want to learn anything further... they should have just read my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"The group interviewers were NOT friendly. The format was very rigid, and the interviewees were asked questions as if they were there alone (one-to-one). It was an awkward, stressful, and competitive setting. Furthermore, the faculty did not respond to interviewees so it felt very stressful. The school definitely gave off an aura of trying to seem "competitive" and such." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we could have seen more of the hospitals on campus instead of spending so much time at Grady in the city" More from this Member | Report Response

"They did not care to impress me at at. Which I like. This school believes that it should be us to impress them not the other way around. I felt they were more honest (some times brutily) compare to Maryland where they are kissing your rear as soon as you get there. (i mean, do they just let anyone it?)"

"The hospitals are spread out. This is an extremely liberal school. Questions were pointed in the three on three interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum for years 1 and 2 is pretty traditional and possibly too difficult. I know several students at Emory who barely made it through their first two years, not because it was too hard for them, but because the school packs so much stuff in that it becomes psychologically draining. The M1s and 2s that I talked to didn't do much to dispel that impression--they seemed sane, but only barely so. Also, I grew up in Atlanta right down the street from Emory so going there would be tough--I'm ready to move on. Also, to people considering the school: if you're going to be happy in Atlanta, you really need to have a car. There are things to do, but they are geographically really spread out. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The traditional curriculum. Lots of hours in the classroom. No technology integrated into the curriculum. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the "traditionalism" of the school - they are very set in their ways and don't look to change any time soon. curriculum is traditional, as is the A-F grading; joint exams seem like they'd be very stressful; lack of ambulatory care education; students didn't strike me as terribly enthusiastic" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff flaunting how much money Emory has due to Coke. It became very annoying after a while. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The big downer about Emory is their pre clinical curriculum is pretty traditional. They dont have a ton of lecture time but they have block testing and straight letter grading, and I know my friends there are hyper stressed come exam time. You must have a car to live in Atlanta, no matter what anyone tells you." More from this Member | Report Response

"how far Grady, their main teaching hospital was from the med school and other parts of campus; joint exams on top of rough traditional curriculum --> seems to create a stressful atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"The idea of a group interview was horrifying and had me nervous for days, but it was actually not as bad as I had feared. The cost of tuition is pretty high, even higher than many Ivy League schools. Real estate in downtown Atlanta is also pretty steep." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. The hospital food wasn't very good." More from this Member | Report Response

"The rigidity of the some of the faculty and the traditional curriculum. The curriculum is heavily lecture based, letter-graded, and the exams are all compressed into a single day each month. Also, the students appeared to be tired and not particularly enthusiastic about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It's a very long interview day, so be prepared for that. The group interview is two faculty and one med student vs three interviewees.

"How much the length of the day would affect me. I had interviews in the morning so by the time that I got to the tour in the afternoon, I was so tired/sleepy that I didn't really get to enjoy it as much as with other schools. Also, in the group interview if your answer's too long the interviewer will tell you to skip ahead and get to the point. Also, make sure to have something ready for the random fact about yourself that they do at the beginning of interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would love Emory and the AMAZINGNESS of the students. (I thought everyone would be geeky and anti-social)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I'm very familiar with Emory." More from this Member | Report Response

"how much clinical experience there is" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the group interview would be so low-key. Also, you should really really talk and get to know the other applicants. You learn a lot from them and it makes the group interview a hell of a lot easier because you already know the people you are interviewing with." More from this Member | Report Response

"30 minutes goes by a lot faster than you would expect. In fact, I only had about 20 minutes for my individual interview, and you probably only speak about 15 in your group interview. Know what you want to say, and know how to get to the point very quickly because you don't get a chance to ramble and eventually touch on the things that are important - you'll just run out of time. I didn't get to talk about an important part of my life because I ran out of time and wasn't as organized as I could have been." More from this Member | Report Response

"REALLY wear comfortable shoes for the walking tour; the Emory people are really laid-back and could care less how you look when you're walking around the campus and downtown medical center. You will have some free time and will also be expected to talk about yourself, so think about what you'd like the panel to know about you before you go in.

"The panel/group interview is not as bad as people made it out to be. It was low stress but maybe it's just because I got a chance to "bond" with the co-applicants in my group during the tour (before the interview) and that cleared the competition in the air.

"How short the interviews would be. The one-on-one is about 25-30 minutes and the group interview is also about 30 minutes.

The 30-minute group interview was very short - since there were 3 of us, it was essentially a 10-minute interview, and I didn't feel like they got to know me very well. The group interviewers seemed to make up their mind right away that they liked one of the interviewees best and directed most of their questions at him for the entire interview."

Overall it's a great school, and the new curriculum sounds awesome." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dress in comfortable shoes & relax. Interview day is lengthy but the admissions staff is very accommodating -- they do everything to put you at ease and make it as enjoyable as possible. Grady is an excellent resource as a teaching hospital. Talk to students when they come by the office throughout the day for some interesting perspective. Don't sweat the panel interview style -- can lend itself to awkwardness but isn't something to dread at all. One-on-one was a casual conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"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!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a long day (I was so tired by lunch time and had interviews afterward). The group interview wasn't really that big a deal, no more or less stressful than one-on-one. Each interview was about half an hour, and all they had access to beforehand was each interviewee's personal statement." More from this Member | Report Response

"Emory is amazing, and I think I fell in love with the school after my visit.

"Dr. Schwartz gave a great presentation on the school and was very entertaining. Erica Black (admissions) was helpful throughout the day and will answer lots of off-the-cuff questions you might have.

"it is a LONG day, but very thorough and fun! i love interviewing, though, so fun might only be my personal opinion. ;) they give you tons of food, and everyone is super, super nice! you have a panel interview and an individual faculty interview. the panel is still one-on-one questions, no group questions. the faculty interview is short and sweet. BE SURE to bring tennis shoes cause the tour is BY FAR the longest tour you will ever go on. everyone else will wear tennis shoes, and you will hate yourself if you don't do it, too. this was one of the best planned interview days i've had so far. emory is actually now my second choice (which is really good cause this is out of over 7 schools). definitely do not pass up this interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"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.

Afterwords, I had my individual interview followed by my 3 on 3 group interview. I dropped into a M1 lecture for a few minutes and then came back for lunch. The interview essentially took up the entire afternoon. Expect a fair amount of downtime in between tasks." More from this Member | Report Response

Most others I interviewed at just showed you the school's facilities but didn't really show you anything in their hospitals. Emory shows you not just stuff that is important for first and second year but also gives in-depth tours of 3rd and 4th year rotation hospitals." More from this Member | Report Response

"Emory interviews in both a one-on-one basis and also a group interview. I thought the one-on-one interview went extremely well and the interviewer attemped to put me at ease. However, the group interview just seems to naturally be awkward, unlike the one-on-one interview the interviewers were somewhat colder and seemed to be there for their questions only. Each of the group interviewers merely asked all three applicants the same question right in a row. Don't worry if you think that you wished you said what the other applicants are currently saying or that they are using your "good answer," because everyone feels that way...just stay calm and confident. The interviewers only have access to your AMCAS personal statement so be sure to give it a look over once before going to interview." More from this Member | Report Response

The group is split up into 2 groups of 9, half of whom interview and half of whom go on a tour. The tour takes you to Grady and Emory Hospitals, which could not be more different. The food in Grady's cafeteria is really good - fried Southern food, mmm mmm, great for patients who just had a triple bypass. There are two interview sessions - a group three-on-three interview (one of whom is your student tour guide) and an individual interview with a faculty member. My individual interview was GREAT - not Q&A but a true conversation. The group interview was a bit awkward." More from this Member | Report Response

"Day starts early at 7:45. Intro, then split up into morning and afternoon interview groups. One-on-one interview, very conversational (20 min). Three-on-three with more difficult questions, more interview-like (30 min, 10 apiece). Tour Grady hospital downtown. Very large, tour hits most of hot spots. Lunch there. All-in-all actually a little fun." More from this Member | Report Response

"very long interview day but they keep you suprisingly busy, the tour is probably the most extensive ive been on, but required taking a 15 minute bus which was annoying but grady was a really amazing hospital, the tour guide knew a ton about the school but was a 4th year so was pretty far removed from the classes and such (not that it really mattered because they are going to be completely different from what we would have next year) Erica and Dr. Schwartz are great, so friendly and warm and really make you smile!"

Meeting with Erica, the Associate Director of Admissions (she's awesome). Meeting with the Dean of Admissions (equally awesome, gave out condoms in honor of World AIDS Day). 3-on-3 interview (two faculty, one MS3 or MS4, three applicants; 30 min; surprisingly relaxing and conversational). 1-on-1 interview (faculty member, 30 min). Lunch. Tour of Grady Hospital. Tour of Emory Hospital. Closing comments from Erica. Done around 4:30pm." More from this Member | Report Response

"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. " More from this Member | Report Response

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 group interview was formal, but very relaxed. they ask pointed questions so you don't get put against each other - there was never a point where i felt inadequate or under qualified because the questions only pertained to the answerer. (tell me about yourself... doesn't make you too nervous) actually, it was kinda fun getting to hear about your peer's experiences - at other interviews, you never get to hear about where others are in life. i enjoyed it actually, it was totally stress free."

"I loved Emory, its definatly my top choice for the school's I've been to. The students are happy and very intellegent. Atlanta seems to be a great place to learn clinical medicine. The group interview was actually pretty cool, because you get to learn more about the really talented people you are there with. There was a little bit of, oh no this person is much cooler/more qualified than I am. Oh and the interview is kind of open file, they have acess to only your essay and where you went to school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Show up at 8. Meet and greet for a while. Split into two groups. I interviewed in the morning. First interview was with a faculty member. Very dry. She asked me ethical questions and some about the state of health care. These are always tough situations for me because I don't like trying to pretend that I know anywhere near as much as a practicing doctor (but this is you gotta play the game, right?!) She also asked about my research. Then, feeling like I had done pretty well, I went to the 3 on 3. That's where I slipped a little. I garbled up my first answer, then fielded a very combative question. Also, the interviewers wer in love with this one guy in wy group and basically talked to him the whole time. The kid did have some interesting answers, but the situation just made me feel stupid. Afterwards we toured Grady. Basically, I love Emory and would love to go there. I'm only upset at myself for not having interviewed better." More from this Member | Report Response

"great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview, and I was extremely nervous (even though I currently go to undergrad at Emory College). Upon arriving at the interview, however, I was immediately put at ease by Erica and the rest of the admissions staff. In addition, the medical students were SO friendly (even though they were literally on their way to a joint exam that morning). Between their exams, they stopped by, grabbed some snacks, sat & chatted with all of the interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"The one-on-one interview was cut-and-dry...not very deep, somewhat conversational. The group interview (3 interviewers, 3 interviewees) seems to be the crucial one and is actually laid back and enjoyable. It helps if the other 2 you're interviewing with are interesting individuals." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my visit to Emory, and it is definitely high on my list of schools. I was a bit worried coming out of the visit though -- I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that a major curriculum overhaul will occur right in the middle of my time there. I thought my one-on-one interview went well, and the doc who interviewed me was very nice and helpful. I thought the group interview went very poorly. I had heard from a lot of people how low stress it was, but mine was very stressful. I almost felt like a joke was being played on me. I felt like the adcom said, "hey, let's put this one in a room with two RIDICULOUSLY more qualified applicants, let them talk a bunch about how ridiculously well qualified they are, and then see how inadequate we can make this one feel!"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall good day, but it starts early (see above). The tour (whether you go in the AM or PM) is mad long so be prepared. However, the long tour gives you a good feel for the school and it allows you to better decide if it's for you. The admissions staff was also great. Very few tools on the interview. All in all, you will leave Emory knowing whether or not it's for you." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were fantastic. The group interview definitely was not as bad as I expected, but they do ask some questions to keep you on your toes - nothing difficult such as policy or ethics, but kind of asking about how you would handle a situation. I got the impression that they really want to know how well you think." More from this Member | Report Response

The second interview was really easy. 20 minutes long, all questions about you (famlily, hobbies, etc). Both interviewers only have your personal statement. The staff was very friendly, Dr. Schwartz is hilarious." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews are relatively laid back. The panel interview isn't anything to worry about but is just a little awkward. The interviewers say they wan't it to be a discussion, but then direct questions at a specific person as opposed to making it a round-table forum.

"Two one-on-one 30-minute interviews (one of which dealt almost exclusively with a discussion of my college town), one three-on-three panel interview (which is not interactive, really; mostly you just need to listen attentively when the other two interviewees are speaking and try to give original answers)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Group interview was harder than individual interview. But the group interview wasnt a discussion like I expected - the interviewers ask the same questions to each of the interviewees and you dont actually talk to the other students, but I have heard that it can change depending on who your interviewers are. All questions were just personal; no ethical dilemmas, political questions, or insurance/medicare/medicaid questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"Emory is incredible. I really didn't expect to be blown away by how friendly everyone was. Erica, the admissions lady that greets and spends the day with you, is so cool. She really makes you feel comfortable, and the students are just as awesome. Dr. Schwartz is also pretty great. The group interview situation is a little intimidating, but it's actually pretty fun."

We split up into two groups and mine went on the tour first: around parts of the medical campus, the general campus, and then downtown to Grady Hospital. Lunch in Grady cafeteria, then an individual interview with a faculty member and a group interview with two other applicants, the same 4th year who was the tour guide, and two faculty members. Then you can sit in on classes (I went to a whole PBL session which was great)." More from this Member | Report Response

"the inteview day starts at the admissions office. you're given name tags and a viewbook and have a few minutes to sit and meet the other interviewees. then you are broken up into two groups, one of which goes on a tour first and interviews in the afternoon. the other does the reverse. just like everyone says, the tour is long. you eat lunch in the middle; you're given $6 at grady cafeteria, which doesn't go a long way if you get bottled drinks. make sure you have a buck or two handy. throughout the day you're constantly going back to the admissions office where you are picked up for both your group and one-on-one interviews. the group interview is really fun but a tip: be sure to hold your confidence even if you're grouped with a super-star overachiever like i was. the third person in my group totally got psyched out and stopped trying to sell himself. i hope he got in but i'm not sure. overall its a really really fun day. i found out i was accepted 11 days later and i have a feeling that's where i'll be next year. after the interview, emory became my first choice. i hope you all love it as much as i did!

"Panel interview was akward. Three faculty sit opposite three students. One question was asked and each person had to answer it when called upon. There were some individual specific questions too. You don't interact with the other interviewees at all though. It feels like an interogation. School is in nice area. It is a nice school but too spread out and don't like grading system."

"Day started early, and went rather late, so be prepared for a long day. In the morning there were two interviews, a group interview with 2 other applicants in front of 2 faculty members and 1 student. There was a combination of general questions (talk about family, why emory) directed to all 3 of us, as well as directed questions taken directly from personal statements. For both interviews, the personal statements were available to read, however my one on one interview, the interviewer had not read over my statement. In between the interviews and afterwards there is some down time outside the admissions office, and there were always current students around to answer questions. Following the interviews there is a short tour of Emory's campus, hten a shuttle ride to Grady hospital where lunch is provided. After the tour of the hospital, you return to campus and the day is over. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great day at Emory. The group interview was not as scary as I had made it in my head.

"The day is long, but very organized. The interview group is fairly small, only 18-20 or so. There are two interviews, with one being a one on one, the other a panel interview with 3 on 3. The panel interview was a little awkward for me because it was the first time I had ever experienced that. Also, it was harder to open up my personal side in front of other interviewees. You either have your interviews in the morning or afternoon, with the LONG tours comprising the other half. You are shuttled to Grady Memorial Hospital, where you have lunch. Grady is an incredible place to do your clinical training. Overall, I had a great time at Emory. By the way, the campus is absolutely beautiful and actually has that college feel."

"Emory is a great school. The campus is beautiful. It is sort of in a suburban area but is only a few minutes away from downtown Atlanta, so you don't have to deal with the hustle and bustle of a big city yet you are close to where there is something to do. The interviews are both relaxed. Duiring the group interview we each got asked 2 of the same questions (tell me about yourself/why med/when decide med and what kind of group activities would you engage in with your classmates) and 2 questions directed to us individually (the seem to try to draw questions from your application, they clearly did for the other two interviewees). " More from this Member | Report Response

"there are two interviews, one 3 on 3 and a 1 on 1. the tour really is long, but that's good because you really get a feel for the facilities. we did a good tour of grady, including the cafeteria (for lunch), student call lounge, film rooms (for x-rays), er, wards, nicu and emory hospital. plus all the campus facilities (tour started around 9:30 and ended around 12:30, including lunch). there was some down time between interivews and a lot of m1s stopped by to scarf down the cookies and popcorn (thanks erica). that was good b/c you got more chances to ask questions about the day to day student life. we also sat in on a pbl session, which was really interesting (and how does that cause chest pain?.... and how does that cause chest pain?...). in all, you really get a chance to learn a lot, but don't forget that you're there to sell them on you as much as they are to sell you on emory! in the end, however, you have to experience grady. imho, that's what makes emory. if you don't want to spend time there, emory might not be for you. also, it's open file but i don't think the interviewers have your mcat, gpa, etc. i think they just have your essay. after the interview, i think they review the rest of your folder, incl lor's and maybe grades/mcat etc." More from this Member | Report Response

Afterwards, we went on a 3 hour long tour. 1 hour of it is being transported on the shuttle.

"I have to admit that I wasn't looking forward to my day at Emory because of some things I had read on SDN and heard. But this negative reputation of cut-throat competition and intensive research focus in my experience proved to be untrue. The panel interview was actually fun - we had great interviewers on our panel, and my other two interviewees were amazing - kinda humbling. I recommend staying with a student host. I stayed with a couple of first year students but they had a joint on Monday so they were basically doing all-nighters for four days to prepare. We did go to dinner, though which was fun."

"I don't like to post much on interviews, but I felt it was my duty to respond after reading a few of the negative posts. The day is long, but I felt at ease and very relaxed the entire time. Erica Black and Dr. Eley are wonderful, the students are the happiest I've seen yet. i come from a large state school that is not considered an academic powerhouse, and I was worried that some people would act like snobs. It was the complete opposite. I even got some phone numbers from some of the first year people who wanted to answer more questions if I had any. Unlike the above poster, I found the panelists in the group interview to be extremely engaged and very interested in us. They asked interesting questions and I enjoyed both interviews very much. I encourage anyone with an upcoming interview to stay with a student host. Mine told me everything I needed to know, showed me how to get to the building, where to park, etc. Emory did not seem competitive like some people seem to think.

The faculty interviewers were NOT friendly at all, and it was not converstional or relaxed (unnecessary for them to act that way).

"Brief review of the format: there's one 3-on-3 group interview and one 1-on-1 interview. Both are "semi-open" file - they see your writings, but not your numbers. The interview day runs about 7:30 to 4, so eat breakfast and be ready for a fair amount of walking. Much of the panel interivew involved all 3 of us answering the same question, so although we weren't directly competing against each other in that sense, the committee could have compared us if they wanted to.

"despite having a group interview, it is really chill. there is also a 30 min, one on one interview. the med student who tours you is on the admissions committee and one of the group interviewers. atlanta is a great city and emory has so many opportunities for students. take the marta tram to campus, it's only $1.75. if you stay with a medical student, ask exactly what accommodations they have... it may be better to stay in a hotel."

"The group interview was actually my favorite interview experience. It's not as stressful as 1 on 1 since there are 3 people and while others speak you can just chill and enjoy yourself. The attention is diffused among 3 applicants. During the group interview, remember they want to see how you interact in a group setting, so maintain eye contact with each speaker and respond with body language appropriately. Don't just zone out until it's your turn to speak. It's a really long day - 7:45 to 5 pm, so in that respect it was stressful. Also they interview like 18 applicants every day so it's a large group."

No hardball questions, just friendly conversation, and he had seen my personal statement, my undergrad institution, and my GPA. After that, I went upstairs for the group interview with two other interviewees, who I already knew from the morning tour. The interview was conducted by two faculty members and the student who had given the tour, who I had also talked to a lot before lunch. The interviewers had seen only our personal statements and colleges, but not our grades or credentials. The questions were aimed at only one person at a time, so I never felt like I was competing to get a word in, and most of the questions were not repeated for the other candidates, so I didn't have to worry about their answers being better than mine.

I met (and had lengthy conversations with) over 30 first years, so I got a complete picture of what the school was like. The group interview was odd, I expected that we would interact with the other candidates being interviewed, but it was just like a one-on-one, but with more people staring at you talk. Not bad, over all. The one-on-one was rather odd for me. I asked the doc interviewing me one question, and he took up 15 of the 20 minutes I was in there talking to me so I didn't get to say much."

The hospital is interesting, but not nearly as interesting as they give them time for on the tour; our tour guide was really stretching to show us different things. The group interview is stressful - they basically go around and ask the same interview/dilemma/personal questions to each of you in turn, and let you each answer - the extra pairs of eyes watching you answer make it more difficult.
