Anybody going to the "Visit Emory" thing march 31-april1??

If anybody has gone in a previous year...how many students usually attend, and did attending this open house really help you make up your mind about emroy? did they present new info, or stuff that you could have found online?

Hi
Just got in the epi program:D so I will be there. Blindluck to answer your question, the new info you get is really getting to meet the profs, see the campus (this helps if you are not from ATL since they show campus housing) and I think we can sit in some classes so that might give a better feel of the school.

:)

Hey,

Where in Atlanta do you live? And are you a recent grad. or someone who has been working? I'm actually graduating from UGA and most likely starting at Emory in the fall for Epi.

does anybody know how many people are going to be at 'visit emory'? is it 40-50 or 100+?

looking at the plans they have, it seems like its going to be huge! if its so big, then it'll probably be more lecture based and not so much one on one interaction with the faculty.

does anybody have any info on this?

Hi Blindluck,
I think it is a fairly big crowd. I went to the open house in the fall and the crowd was almost as big and they split us up based on interest for the dept meetings so there you get about 10-20 people. For the big welcome in the morning it was a lecture type scenario but at the end we got to meet some teachers. If that does not work, you can get to meet some profs during lunch. or if you decide to sit in some classes you may meet some of the profs then.
Hope this answers your questions ;)

I set up appointments with the Dept head and another prof for Friday, just so I could be sure to have some one-on-one time with them.
