What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The format of the group interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If it were not for the group interview, Emory would have given me a better impression. It showed the competitive nature of student life there. The faculty interviewers were NOT friendly at all, and it was not converstional or relaxed (unnecessary for them to act that way). Also, some facilities (classrooms) were outdated and need to be renovated. The curriculum should also become more innovative... Overall, though, it is a lovely campus. " Report Response
