Hey guys - do any current students/anyone from the ATL area have recommendations on what to do/where to eat in the city if you’re there for a weekend post-interview?

Downtown Decatur is roughly 10 minutes by car from Emory. Some of my favorite restaurants/bars in Atlanta are all located within a 0.1 mile radius there. Just hop on Yelp once you're there to help you find what you're looking for.

Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market are great places to spend a day. You can rent a bike/roller blades or walk (20-30 minutes apart) along the Beltline from Krog to Ponce and vice versa. The sunset views of the city on the Beltline are stunning, and there are also great local art/restaurants/shops/breweries all along the Beltline.

The Westside/Howell Mill also has some interesting shops/restaurants if you've exhausted the above.

I'd personally stay away from tourist attractions like the aquarium and coca-cola factory because they are just too crowded on weekends.

Does anyone know whether the 1:1 and the 3:3 interviews are open or closed file? Also are they held in the morning or afternoon? Lastly, are they back to back?

Sorry for all the questions but would appreciate the help. Thanks!

Interviewed here last year. The 1:1 felt closed file, 3:3 is definitely open file. You’ll be notified your interview day of. And they may be back to back or you might have a 30ish min break in between.

They split the group into 2, one half tours Grady/Emory while the other half interviews and vise versa after lunch & some presentations. So your interviews will either be both in the morning or afternoon. You could have the group interview first or the 1:1. You could have them back to back or have anywhere between a 30 minute to an hour gap. The wait flies by because you'll be waiting with others in an open area where students are constantly walking by to answer questions and say hi. This is how my day went anyways.

They'll tell you at lunch the group interviewers get your personal statement, but they're allowed to look through your application afterwards. All the 1:1 gets is your personal statement, but I don't remember if they look at your application after.

There's no benefit of knowing the layout of the day ahead of time, but I'm also someone who likes to know every detail regardless. It's a long day, but super informative and fun!

Also, for anyone hesitant... BRING COMFORTABLE SHOES!! They're not playing about the walking tour lol

Good luck!!! I hope this helped :)

Is Emory only mailing out acceptances (and not rejections or waitlists) today? I am able to track what’s being mailed to me and just saw that a letter from Emory was put this morning, will probably arrive tomorrow.

Anyone from the 1/17 interview group hear anything? Also, for those checking the USPS Informed Delivery, does it give estimated dates for delivery?

For everyone that has been accepted, was your portal updated the day after acceptances were supposed to go out?

They basically ask you questions from your app and other traditional interview questions in a 3-on-3 setting. Just know your experiences well, future of healthcare, what you do for fun...things of that ilk and you should be good to go. Obviously, be respectful of your fellow interviewees and all interviewers. The 4th year giving the tour is usually your student interviewer on the 3-on-3. Good luck!

Has anyone been able to access OPUS? The financial aid deadline is approaching and I would like to confirm all of my documents have been received.
What is OPUS? Are accepted students supposed to have a login to a different portal, or are you talking about the normal applicant admissions portal we have been using all cycle?

OPUS is their portal for tracking financial aid documents. It’s a different login and seems like it isn’t working yet

Were you given directions to access OPUS with your acceptance? Or were you told this to access this on interview day to track financial aid documents?

These comments are interesting because so far the documents I handed in can be tracked through the CSS profile - IDOC services, not OPUS.
