What impressed you positively?

"I had a really great time at Emory. The students, faculty, and admissions staff were awesome, and I even had a great time getting to know my fellow applicants. The facilities, campus, and teaching hospitals were really great as well. I really felt welcomed, and everyone was willing to answer questions at any time; they made sure you had all the information you needed about Emory. Everyone was open and honest about their experiences at Emory too. The curriculum and class structure appears to fit my learning style also and what I am looking for in a medical school."

What are your general comments?

"We were greeted by the admissions office in the morning, had a powerpoint presentation, and a personal welcome from Dr. Eley. Then we split into two groups (morning and afternoon interviews), and my group toured Grady, Emory hospital, and the campus first with a student tour guide. I had a one-on-one interview with a doctor before my group interview. Both interviews were partially open-file. The group interview consisted of three applicants and the interviewers were two doctors and the student tour guide from the morning. Overall, I had an amazing time at Emory, and the day was actually fun. I was very impressed with everything I saw and experienced, and Emory is now my top choice." Report Response
