Probably not if you plan to stay in the South. Transferring to UGA or GSU would be a better investment in terms of cost / benefit. Those law schools cost far less but place as many students at Atlanta big law as Emory does, and the mid-range firms in the area are more likely to hire UGA & GSU grads than Emory, if only because of loyalty to their local alma maters. A lot of regional attorneys have ties to the two state schools or Mercer, and they seem to see Emory as an outsider. I went to UGA as an undergrad, and that helped getting interviews back in the day as much as graduating from Emory Law.
Additionally (and this is not a slam, just a fact), those schools are less competitive, meaning you have a better chance of a higher class ranking against your classmates. In the end, with firms, class rank is the biggest factor for on-campus interviews. If you graduate from one of the top 5 law schools in the country in the middle of the class, you likely will still have good options. However, beyond those top schools, it largely comes down to class rank. If you aren't top 10%, maybe 15, then you are not getting a chance at those jobs. So, to me, it actually pays to go to a less competitive school where you can be top dog and make the OCI cuts.
I went to Emory Law with a guy whose younger brother went to GSU. Emory guy graduated in the middle of the class and got a staff level consulting job at one of the consulting firms upon graduation, about 40K a year. A year behind him, his younger brother transferred from a 4th tier school to GSU, ranked in the top 10 percentile of his GSU class, and got a job at Morris, Manning making about 110K upon graduation. The younger brother freely admitted that GSU wasn't as demanding as what he saw of his older brother's load at Emory, and he laughed about how much easier it was for him to do better in class rankings with less work.
Emory has been hiring its own students in recent years to make its placement numbers look better. Look into it, as well as the Emory law professor who told graduates that they were entitled for wanting decently paying jobs upon graduation, in order to handle their debt. I say all of this as an older and very frustrated alum who is incredibly disappointed in their performance over many years, along with their lack of accountability to students. Really disappointing, and I don't want to see more young people graduating from Emory, saddled with debt and few decent job prospects.
--Edit: Just saw your last post. You did the right thing. While 85% of Emory grads will be working at low paying firms or contract jobs for the next 10 years trying to pay off their loans while eating Ramen noodles, you will be free from the exorbitant debt.
