What are your general comments?

"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. Overall it was a great experience and Emory is definitely my number one choice." Report Response
