Also I found out the average cost of the Emory AA program:
 
Average indebtedness for 2006 graduates was $72,320. 
 
Great deal figuring that when you graduate from AA school you make around $120,000.00 plus a sign-on bonus of up to $40,000.00!!

Do you know if the 2 semesters in physics is Calc-based physics or do you think taking 2 semesters of normal physics would suffice?

I see there were 219 completed applications to Emory's AA program in 2009 but only 41 were accepted... What does it take? Top grades?

Renee,

I think they are looking for a variety of things when accepting students.  I was just accepted into their program, as well as South University, and Nova.  I am a Senior student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with ok grades (3.51 out of 4.0).  My MCAT was also mediocre (29).  I think what got me early interviews was the fact that I have a little bit of training in the anesthesia field working on animals.  I learned the basics of anesthesia (intubation, monitoring, arterial and vein access, etc.) and became familiar with what the job entails.  You don't need experience like this to be accepted to any of the programs, in fact I know another person who was accepted with a major in Architecture, with no medical background whatsoever.  They are looking for well rounded individuals who have a passion for anesthesia.  If you are truly interested in the field, you should be able to tell them this in your personal statement and give reasons why you are interested in Anesthesia and why you are a perfect fit for the job.  They can separate out very easily the people who just want a career change to make more money from the people who are actually going to enjoy this work.  I also had volunteer experience in the emergency department which I spoke about in my interview and how it made me realize that I want a job that requires a lot of patient contact.  My parents are also both in medicine so I know the drawbacks and benefits of a health care profession which they asked about in my interview. 

So, to recap, top grades are not the only thing that they look at when considering you for an interview.  Good grades are certainly a must, but you need more than that.  You need to be well rounded and be involved in things that clearly show that you are motivated in pursuing a career in the health care field (not necessarily Anesthesia).  This is what they stressed in our interviews at all three programs.

Badger8636,
I applied at Emory AA program and am anxiously waiting for the invitation.
What questions did the board ask you during the interview?
Thank you
Lenith
