Yes it is disheartening. I think the amount of trash Emory has taken about the rankings drop is a bit over the top. Emory is still recognized by the non-TLS world as a top 20-25 school (I mean my god it was 22 last year and 20 the year before, people are quite short-sighted). The career services may not be great (I really don't know, since I haven't attended yet), but if that is the case I imagine you can find the same at many schools. People should be worrying about how they can hustle to find jobs, not complaining about career services. I have no doubt in the next few years Emory's rank will climb, the school puts too much money and pride in its grad programs for it not to. /rant
Anyway, it does seem odd to me that there's so few people on here from Emory. UGA's thread is like 50 times longer, as are all of its peer schools. I wonder what gives.
Oh, they exist, they're just very underground.
I think it's kind of stupid to be embarrassed about going to Emory. Yeah they have taken a lot of shit the past few months, but in the grand scheme of things being embarrassed about a school ranked #30 (and generally regarded as top-25 or higher) when there are SO many worse schools just doesn't make sense to me.
Heh, I didn't mean that. The whole ranking shenanigans had nothing to do with it, they're just not outspoken people to begin with.
