    It is my daughter...I (semi-retired) simply spoke in her behalf here, since the anally retentive factor is variously high on these fora about protocol from the self-anointed forum police...she will interview at my alma mater, Emory, and at Baylor a few days apart. She was complete rather late (MCAT), but better late than never.

    So yeah... back on track, if you are down, check out the Facebook group.

    We're currently sharing info on finding housing.

    To those of you still interviewing, best of luck! (are there any more?) And relax, the panel interviewers tend to be incredibly nice and walk you through questions.

    I'd love to join the facebook group, but can't seem to find it! I've tried searching Emory University School of Medicine but only found the Class of 2015 group. Any other advice?

    Just got an II (OOS) for next Friday (3/2)... really conflicted about spending more money/taking more time off work. Would I just be interviewing for the waitlist?

    Emory started out as my numero uno but since I've been accepted to a school I'd be really happy at. Happier, I can't say.

    :scared: my head's spinning, gimme some advice SDN-ers!

    Just got a confirmation of Emory receiving my update letter...which I emailed to them just over a month ago. (Is that delay normal for them?). I would be ecstatic to get an II here.

    I don't know about whether you'd be interviewing for a waitlist, but imo, Emory's definitely worth checking out. I actually interviewed at Emory after having been accepted at a school at which I'd have been happy, and I can honestly say that I'm glad that I visited. Emory has an absolutely beautiful campus/facilities and great clinical experiences. Whatever your decision, good luck!

    There is still a round of acceptances to go out in the beginning of March. That means they have not yet filled all the seats in their class. You wouldn't interviewing for the WL but the competition for those last few seats will probably be intense! However, I would def recommend going to the interview. Emory is AMAZING and you still have a chance at getting a seat.

    Feb acceptances went out today! Good luck to everyone waiting :laugh:

    Interviewing for the wait-list does not happen at Emory. The class is not actually filled until the interview season is finished (same goes for constructing the wait-list), so you're still interviewing for a seat in the class.

    I'm biased, but I'd say its worth the trip! Atlanta is beautiful this time of year :D

    Quick question for those who already interviewed: where does the interview day end? At Emory Med or at Grady?
    Thanks!

    I'm still waiting in the Midwest as well. I interviewed back in mid-November though, so I'm becoming increasingly less hopeful about my prospects for Emory.

    Hey how likely is to get an acceptance letter for this school if you interviewed back in October and havent heard back? Anyone know if I should keep looking out for something in the mail or just stop looking and move on?

    There's no way that any of us can absolutely know the answer to your question, but there is supposed to be at least one more batch of acceptances that will go out in March.

    I'm in the same situation as you, and I've been wondering the same thing. I've started to assume that they're not that interested in me.

    So I was disappointed because, according to ups, USPS, and FedEx, any letter from Emory should have arrived yesterday. However, I forgot to take into account the failure of my uni mail system.

    My acceptance came today! Interviewed early February. So excited!

    Accepted! Got it in the mail today at 1245pm today in Vancouver, BC. Wow.. the mail is slow.

    So unbelievably excited. Good luck to everyone else. Your time will come.

    I also interviewed at the end of October so there's still hope.
