  • Wonderful Education - Just Find Your niche

    Nov 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality faculty, plenty of opportunities and resources, over-all wonderful education experience, gorgeous campus
    Cons: Price (same as every elite private college), lack of school spirit

    Summary: I graduated from Emory in Dec. '03 (I graduated a semester early by overloading my schedule and having AP credit). I have to say, I was very happy with my college choice. Emory is rather small, liberal arts college with a strong science program. It ... read more

    Jan 20, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great education, reputation of the school and faculty
    Cons: Pretty much everything else

    Summary: I have read or skimmed over the reviews written by the others here, and I honestly can't believe them. Understand that I'm not attacking anyone, but many wrote silly reasons to dislike the school, silly reasons to like the school, and...well, it's great ... read more

    Pros: Financial Aid, Size, Locale, Appearance
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: I had never heard of Emory University until my son, who is now a senior in the business school, began his search for the "perfect college". In order to meet his criteria, the University had to be one of the top 25 in the nation. That ... read more

    Sep 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Convienence
    Cons: Unhealthy

    Summary: I ate on campus for three years. I have seen the meal plan change drastically (and get more expensive) over the four years that I attended Emory. During my freshman year, we were required to deposit $900/semester on our meal plan the first ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: On Campus
    Cons: Expensive, poorly maintained

    Summary: After three years of living on campus, I am not particularly thrilled at paying $2600 a semester to live in a box. I spent my freshman year in Longstreet and my sophomore and junior year in Turman West single. The overall Res Life department ... read more

    Pros: Highly ranked; beautiful campus and location; excellent education and social life
    Cons: None so far!

    Summary: Knowing my daughter wanted to be a doctor we looked for schools that had excellent science programs. Emory does and it also has a medical school. In addition the Center for Disease Control is housed in Atlanta which is a wonderful place for an ... read more

  • Less money every year

    Sep 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: nice package freshman year
    Cons: Decrease $$ every year

    Summary: The financial aid department at Emory is known to meet "your family financial need 100%". This is what we were told to say while tour guiding. Every person I have met who was on financial aid, has experienced Emory cutting their financial aid ... read more

  • Not Worth It

    Sep 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Variety of opportunities
    Cons: Debt

    Summary: After recently graduating from Emory, I have many misgivings about the school. You can walk on campus on any given Friday afternoon and notice that there are hardly any people around. Why? Because everyone leaves campus. There is no school spirit. ... read more

  • Awesome place... just stay outside!

    Jul 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful, 'coastable,' brilliant teachers, not super-southern
    Cons: Those darned dorm rooms.

    Summary: This is an awesome place, with brilliant yet generally relaxed teachers and challenging-but-not-orgo core courses. (Actually, the 'core' is really a distribution list: 1 of 5 science courses, 3 of 10 english, etc.) The school has tons of money, so you ... read more

    Pros: the expansion of a friend's circle
    Cons: the negative perceptions that outsider's ( people from other schools) have about sororities

    Summary: I am currently a sophomore at Emory and I am affiliated with the Greek system there. Many students have reservations about that aspect of social life at a college. Moreover, many of these fears are justified at many other colleges, but Emory is very ... read more

    Pros: Money, money everywhere for the academically successful student
    Cons: None now, but will Coke funds last forever?

    Summary: Living only a few minutes away from Emory, I've had more than a passing experience with the university and its community events. When it came time to apply for undergraduate admission there, I was overwhelmed by the merit-based scholarships available to ... read more

    Cons: expensive, no football team

    Summary: I graduated from Emory University last May (1999). When I first started applying to colleges, I only wanted Ivy League and Emory was my safe school. All it took was one visit and I was in love with the school. There were many things that I liked about ... read more

    Pros: it's a priceless school, I am planning never to leave!
    Cons: a bit expensive

    Summary: When I was first looking at colleges, I remember how scared I was. What if I don't like the school, what if I don't like the faculty? Any how, I did what any highly selective prospect would do, I did my research. I found Emory to be in the top 20 ... read more
