What impressed you negatively?

Also, the students appeared to be tired and not particularly enthusiastic about the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I thought the interview day was excellent and very comprehensive. They walked us through Grady Hospital (an amazing public hospital) and also through the Emory campus. The admissions staff, medical faculty, and med students were all available to answer questions. This was one of the most organized, all-around positive interview experiences I had this past year."
