What impressed you positively?

"pretty good match rates (clain 80% match with top 3 and 50% are in "competitive" residencies). they had a list of the current match list, which showed a good diversity of locations and specialties. also, opportunity to do clinical rotations all over georgia (on a lottery system between students)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"nothing really stands out. the class is big (180 - state mandated) so it's not for you if you want a close knit class." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing stands out. fyi, they are state funded, so every year there are exactly 180 students. they said last year they admitted 2 from outside ga. one faculty mentioned most out of state are md/phd.. something to keep in mind if you're not a ga resident." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"2 interviews were held - one with a faculty member and one with a committee member. mcg does rolling admissions, so you need your committee interviewer to bring you up so they can vote on you to get accepted... so you want to make sure your committee interviewer will be a strong advocate. we took a tour including a trip to the anatomy lab - probably to see if any of us would flinch at the site of a cadaver :) the first interview was about 60 min and the second was closer to 30. lunch was a southern classic: chicken tenders, mac & cheese, green beans and sweat tea! 8 of us interviewed and they said about 60 were admitted edp, about 450 would be interviewed and 230 would be accepted. also, about 1/2 of the waitlist get in. these stats may support a lot of students going elsewhere but that's probably because just about every student in ga applies to mcg."
