What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory is a mixed bag defined mostly by its medical and business schools. Ranked 20th or 21st by the year, Emory strives to be an Ivy League school. In some ways, it is comparable: the Biology and Chemistry departments are well kept, ethical (surprisingly important in college!), and generally filled with top professors, some even split between Emory and Stanford! The business school is one of the best and offers opportunities to undergraduate students to boost their careers. If you are 100% sure about a medical route, like I was, the education, research, and mentorship at Emory will guide you past "fluff" programs and support your goals, even if you are not great at any of these. If you are competitive, like challenges, and are 100% sure you want to do business school, Emory is also a good candidate. However, if you are not interested in business or pre-med life, you will not like Emory life in general, unless you're a philosophy/religion or creative writing student. The arts department was removed a couple of years ago, and the remainder of STEM generally is underdeveloped. There are few resources for social life or recreation outside of sports, which lacks American football and is minimally recognized by the community, and Greek Life, which was repeatedly implicated in illicit behavior when I attended until it was essentially reduced to service clubs. Despite this all, I do highly recommend Emory Techlab in Cox Hall if you want to hang in an amateur prototyping space with cool people, though I am biased. Even if you are pre-med or pre-biz, you will need a lot of determination to make it. Pre-med culture is competitive and self-abusive, most likely from lack of positive, casual extracurriculars, or perhaps vice versa. This may not be the school's fault, as, in my humble opinion, a good portion of pre-med students are just not academically equipped to handle the challenge. However, the school does not fund as many grassroots ideas as I think it should. I believe though that pre-biz is even more mentally taxing, as there is an early-entry program to the business school, which features a peer-competition mode to education. Point is, if you think you can handle the competitive heat in Hotlanta, and are 101% sure you will wear suits or a stethoscope, Emory is a great choice. Otherwise, regular Emory life is limited and stifling if you are not busy 24/7 or partying like the frats will close tomorrow, which they might. Its incredibly supportive of your goals if you are pre-biz or pre-med, but you will be under a lot of competitive culture or educational models, if in business. You will succeed if you hold on and listen to your mentors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Extremely expensive tuition with Emory being stingy on giving out grants. Classes get full quickly. Housing is said to be guaranteed your first two years at Emory, but they ran out of housing for sophomores and placed them in upperclassmen housing. Professors are great, people are great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a sweltering hot Monday in Atlanta, and you have five minutes to make it to class across campus. Your day is not going so well. As you are running past buildings of marble facade, you smell sweet notes of magnolia. You see trees all around you, oak trees, redbuds, and dogwoods. The Atlanta skyline is in the distance. Running past the library, you realize your library book is late, and you quickly drop it with the librarian, who welcomes you by name and asks about your weekend with a kind smile. Running, running, running, passing the medicinal gardens of the nursing school and into the lobby, where you are welcomed by friends from all over the country, with diverse views, backgrounds, and stories to share. Thinking about it, your day isn't so bad after all. You go to Emory, a top-ranking academic institution, on a lush campus close to a bustling city. You have small class sizes, with staff and faculty always available. And you will leave with a priceless degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I found that the Emory University community is great supportive community that encourages leadership as well as teamwork. I am always greeted by my professors who are always excited to get their students as exited as themselves about the topics that we cover. I would encourage incoming students to network with others because this creates a stronger community in which students bond through various activities while creating a healthy environment to grow, learn, and connect to others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Emory University. I am currently a sophomore and have completely fallen in love with the school. The people and professors are amazing, the extracurriculars are phenomenal and the city is just breathtaking. I don't know of anyone who doesn't love it. Regardless of what kind of college you are looking for, Emory has a place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love it at Emory University. There are so many opportunities to get involved in many different types of activities. Whatever you love to do you will probably find it here somewhere. It's the perfect size campus and class size. People refer to it as city-adjacent. You can have the city experience if you want but if you don't it's far enough away from Atlanta it's basically residential.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory is great, but if you want a social scene definitely join greek life. Pretty much 30% of all of Emory is involved in greek life, and they send you your weekend plans on a platter every week. You could definitely find your own crowd without greek life, but damn do they make it hard. The academics and opportunities, however, are unmatched. You'll love living here because this school has an insane amount of money. Freshman dorms and some sophomore dorms have sinks inside, which makes it super convenient and spacious inside of the dorms. It feels like you're living in your own apartment in a way, because nobody makes a lot of noise outside of their dorms. The campus is absolutely beautiful. There's gorgeous marble buildings, a giant quad, and the architecture is just really thoroughly though out. It's not too big, not too small and everything is within reach in terms of distance. The food is eh. As a freshman, you're going to have to eat at the cafeteria, which we call "DUC". The food there is actually unbearable sometimes and the amount of dry chicken they can stuff in that one facility is record-breaking. Cox Hall, however, has decent food that you can buy from different merchants. Overall, Emory has a really good set-up for career building, resume help, schedule advisory, and extracurriculars. You can pretty much have any type of college experience you want at this school - whatever you choose. The academic competition is strong, too, so be proactive about getting a spot in the library and working hard in classes. Emory's classes are difficult most of the time, so you have to put in the work if you want to succeed.

The vast diversity of the student population creates an environment that teaches the students and faculty how to be accepting. Emory does not set out to make life difficult but to provide all its students with the best opportunity to properly advance their academic​ careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it more of a distraction to me being on a big major city, it would be kinda hard not to go out and enjoy yourself a little. I did like the class sizes and the campus was such a beauty. I still plan on attending it because the major is wish to exceed it is well known in the school environment so I could always get extra help from others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory is one of the best universities I have ever heard of to the point that I dream and have dreamed of going there for years. It has a beautiful campus, especially because of its architecture. Everything is walking distance, which is great, but it is still a pretty big campus. It has a nice environment because it is close to Atlanta, but it is not directly in the city, so I am not so overwhelmed by city life while still being accessible to that lifestyle if I chose. Emory Village is an area right outside to the campus with lots of places to eat and a handy CVS that is beneficial to all students, too. And if we are looking at the college for what it provides to students academically, the school’s performance, especially in medicine and law outshines many other colleges. The staff and administration put a lot of time and effort into giving the best opportunities to its students and it shows, but while they highlight education, it is remarkable that they still successfully show their support in art and athletics. Student life is one of the most important aspects to colleges, and Emory covers that, too. Overall, Emory is an impressive school from its setting to its skills, and I would love to attend this college.
