What impressed you positively?

"Facilities, the chance to do work at Grady, research opportunites, friendly staff (Erica & Dr. Shwartz), overall just a great school" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not Much. Though my 3 0n 3 interview wasn't great. I was nervous and stumbled through my first question. Then was asked a combative question. I had kind of a sick feeling after that, like I had blown a great opportunity. Also I think the student environment is one of the most competitive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Show up at 8. Meet and greet for a while. Split into two groups. I interviewed in the morning. First interview was with a faculty member. Very dry. She asked me ethical questions and some about the state of health care. These are always tough situations for me because I don't like trying to pretend that I know anywhere near as much as a practicing doctor (but this is you gotta play the game, right?!) She also asked about my research. Then, feeling like I had done pretty well, I went to the 3 on 3. That's where I slipped a little. I garbled up my first answer, then fielded a very combative question. Also, the interviewers wer in love with this one guy in wy group and basically talked to him the whole time. The kid did have some interesting answers, but the situation just made me feel stupid. Afterwards we toured Grady. Basically, I love Emory and would love to go there. I'm only upset at myself for not having interviewed better." Report Response
