What are your general comments?

"The Emory campus is gorgeous, they seem to have tons of money, brand-new research buildings, etc...but the teaching facilities at the medschool are awful, and the curriculum is still a little bit more traditional than one might like. The tour is really, really, really long, and involves taking a shuttle to downtown Atlanta and Grady Memorial Hospital. The hospital is interesting, but not nearly as interesting as they give them time for on the tour; our tour guide was really stretching to show us different things. The group interview is stressful - they basically go around and ask the same interview/dilemma/personal questions to each of you in turn, and let you each answer - the extra pairs of eyes watching you answer make it more difficult. If only they had nicer lecture facilities, more PBL, and more patient-interaction opportunities in the 1st and 2nd year...." Report Response
