Emory University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about Emory University?


The distgustingly large endowment it has and its relatively miniscule allocation of that endowment towards academic funding.


Sometimes the workload can be frustrating. It really depends on what courses/career path you are pursuing. For someone who is pre med, I have a demanding schedule in the sciences. However, I really feel that after the initial frustration, I have learned a lot to make all the stress worthwhile.


The most frustrating thing is trying to "keep up" with most of your peers. Students often manage to balance academics on top of volunteer work and extracurriculars, which may be difficult based on the time requirements of all three. However, this frustration also serves as motivation to work hard yourself.


I believe that the most frustrating thing about the school is the difficulty of the classes. Sometimes when you think that you are doing everything you can to do well in a class, it just doesn't pay off. There is so much emphasis on doing well academically at this school.


I don't think there is anything frustrating with school because frustration is something you bring upon yourself, which means you can fix it.


The pressure to know exactly what career you would like to pursue. It seems as if everyone is pre-something (pre-med, pre-law, pre-business, etc.). I think that this takes away from being able to take a variety of classes and explore different fields of study.


The fact that it is a private school and the high cost of tuition.


It's a small campus (since I go to Oxford College of Emory University in Covington, GA) so relationships form fast, but that means they also can break quickly. So be careful with friendships. Be smart.


Trying to find a good balance between work-load and having a life outside of school.


Limited major options, no big sports, lack of unity
