What impressed you positively?

"I had FUN! It was a long day, but you learn a ton about the school and hospitals, and you get lots of time to speak with current students and fellow interviewees, which I think is the best part of interviews. Med students took every chance they got between classes to come speak to us and answer questions, and Erica Black--the admissions co-director who practically single-handedly steers the whole day--is easily the most amiable and outgoing admissions person I've met at any of my interviews (Emory was my first interview, and I say this in retrospect after 5 other interviews). She made things much less stressful and bounced around talking to us, making sure everything was going well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"NOTHING. Day was very well-planned and structured, and overall just went smoothly....and this was the first day of Emory's interview season!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The day ended closer to 4pm than it did 5pm....I think that last hour is just a buffer in case you have an afternoon interview and it goes over. " Report Response

"Amazing...even though I attend Emory and already know a lot about the school, I definitely was not bored at all during the interview day and am seriously considering staying in ATL." Report Response
