What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my visit to Emory, and it is definitely high on my list of schools. I was a bit worried coming out of the visit though -- I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that a major curriculum overhaul will occur right in the middle of my time there. I thought my one-on-one interview went well, and the doc who interviewed me was very nice and helpful. I thought the group interview went very poorly. I had heard from a lot of people how low stress it was, but mine was very stressful. I almost felt like a joke was being played on me. I felt like the adcom said, "hey, let's put this one in a room with two RIDICULOUSLY more qualified applicants, let them talk a bunch about how ridiculously well qualified they are, and then see how inadequate we can make this one feel!""
