"Why Emory and Atlanta"
"What three qualities would you look for in a physician?"
"Do you have any personal ties to Atlanta!??"
"Give the underlying cause of terrorism and what would you do to solve it..."
"see above (however, it was asked in a very laid back way)"
"read SDN and primary and secondary"
"The students - all very friendly and willing to answer any questions. They didn't seem at all competitive, and were willing to work together. Also, I really liked the facilities and Grady was impressive. The admissions staff was very welcoming - they made every effort to make you feel comfortable. "
"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."
"That it was going to be soooo cold and wet!! "
"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."
