What impressed you positively?

"The school itself is super nice, the new hospital looks really cool, and Grady Memorial is definitely a wild place to learn and you'd see a lot. The tour was super cool, we got to see a good portion of Grady, including the ED and we even foamed into the NICU which was kind of awkward but worth it to see all the cute babies. Everyone is super nice, and the interview is relatively laid back. They provide refreshments and cookies throughout the day, and lunch was delicious." 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. Speaking of which, the tour was so long, as was the interview day in general." 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. It is very non-competitive and they basically just ask a question and go down the line and each person has a chance to answer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When they say bring tennis shoes for the tour, they're not joking or testing you. You can really do it. The tour is super long, so definitely make sure you have comfortable shoes on for it." Report Response
