I'm from Atlanta, and the atmosphere is a main reason I'm not applying to Emory. There's a pretty happening scene for guys, and usually downtown is ok, but too many people I know have gotten jumped coming or going from gay clubs. Not to mention the attitude of the police/local government.
Also, no one's getting a job out of Emory.
Is that really Emory, or is that all non-T14 schools where recruiting isn't as heavy? My buddy's girlfriend visited from Columbia last weekend and she said that there are even a fair amount of students from their struggling to find jobs and it's #4. What makes Emory particularly bad? Where you guys applying?
Last I heard about Columbia, most everyone was employed. --LinkRemoved--. Of course, that's self-reported, but to my knowledge ATL/TLS haven't reported anything to the contrary yet.
In contrast, Emory got slammed in OCI this year - 27 distinct employers were reported. http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... &start=625
(It was somewhere in that thread; I just don't know where). There's also rounds of anecdotal evidence, but obviously read those with a grain of salt. Because I go to UCLA, I know UCLA (a comparable super-regional school) reported around 160 distinct employers (not including resume droppers). I would also imagine there are more offices at UCLA because we have more secondary markets around LA (orange county, san diego), but I'm just speculating.
I've heard Emory's career services people are particularly useless, and that the top AL firms that Emory used to funnel to were all hit harder than most of the other major market firms in other major markets. However, it might not matter either way. The economy is expected
to recover to full strength by 2013, and you'll graduate in 2014. So presumably, you'll get a job so long as you do reasonably well at and Emory-tiered school or better.
