In a group
"How do your parents feel about your decision to pursue medicine?"
"Tell me about yourself, family and the activities you like."
"Is there anything else you would like for me to relay to the admissions committee?"
"They asked me how I thought my experience abroad related to practicing medicine. (It was part of my personal statement)"
"Read this website, Emory's website, and my AMCAS"
"My student host was fantastic! She made me dinner and breakfast, gave me her bed to sleep in and stayed up talking to me about Emory and Atlanta. The other med students seemed just as nice and helpful, although they had a big exam day. They were very honest with their answers. Elena Black was great too! She is so incredibly enthusiastic about the school and very friendly. Also, I enjoyed meeting the other applicants. They are definitely people I would want to go to school with. "
"I felt that the interviewers were going through the formality of giving the interviews. They were very nice, though they were distracted at times, which bothered me obviously. Also the diversity of the student body was lacking. "
"How short the interviews would be. The one-on-one is about 25-30 minutes and the group interview is also about 30 minutes. I felt like I didn't have enough time for the interviewers to get to know me, especially in the group interview. We each only answered 2 questions. "
"Hope that you get your interviews in the morning because the tour is very, very long. I first had my one-on-one interview, a break, then my panel interview. During the break I got to know the other applicants who were in the same panel group so I didn't feel uncomfortable/anxious during the interview. Afterwards, we went on a 3 hour long tour. 1 hour of it is being transported on the shuttle. Though it was long, it was also very thorough, and I feel like I got a good sense of what the school and hospitals are like. I think working at Grady would provide incredible clinical experiences."
