What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being on campus I have found the most welcoming community that I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. If I have ever needed assistance in my personal life or in the education aspect of the college experience my professors have been able to assist me or get me in touch with people that could assist me. My classmates are all encouraging as well, which I believe has been fostered by the nature of the campus and faculty already there. Emory has a plethora of student health options, including mental health. If I had to go back and decide where to attend, I would pick Emory University all over again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to Emory is definitely a life changing experience. You have access to amazing resources, people, and opportunities as a student here. Academics are obviously top notch, the professors are experts in their field and most of them are conducting research. One thing to note is that while Emory advertises itself as a liberal arts college, the reality is that many students aren't interested in getting a well rounded education and care mostly about their pre-professional paths (premed or business). The social life is great, there are all sorts of people and anyone can find a social circle that suits them. Students here are driven and everyone is involved in a multitude of clubs and activities but even though we're hard workers, we still like to party! I highly recommend Emory! Both the campus and Atlanta itself are amazing environments to live and learn in!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went to Emory as a prospective student and was absolutely delighted by how engaging the environment was. Emory consistently being deemed a happy college has its merit as it was a rainy Saturday and yet students are were still smiling and the admissions officers interacted with every student on the tour. The university was large in size yet the fact that the school maintains a close-knit community was evident. Overall, Emory was very endearing especially to a high school student, like myself, who are used to seeing her classmates drained of energy as they travel from class to class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory has always been my dream school. It simply has everything that a student would want: state-of-the-art academic facilities, comfortable residence halls, a variety of great food, access to Atlanta, and faculty that genuinely cares about the success of their students. We may not have a football team, but Emory has plenty of other things that inspire school spirit!

Emory provided a challenging but formative college experience. While some of the courses and professors were lacking, I felt like I got a comprehensive education that gave me the offerings I was looking for. The extracurriculars were the best part of the experience.

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.
