I was accepted to Emory (well I guess I was because I got that e-mail about frat house job)
I just wanted to help you guys who are planning to go to Emory law by answering your questions. I went to Emory for UG.
I guess I can't answer anything about law school's job placement or something since I didn't go to law school yet.
But I can answer question about Emory in general and local area!
I just wanted to help out those who are interested in my alma mater!
How is public transit/biking? I will be bringing my car but I hate relying on it to commute, I'd rather take the bus and do something productive. What is the coolest walking hood close to Emory, and how is it? And about going out---are the clubs/bars flooded with cig smoke and how do people usually get home (I know the truth is they probably drive home drunk, but what are the other options)?
there is a metro/bus system but it's not really that useful for getting around town. it's mostly good for getting to/from sporting events. you can always get a cab but you have to call them; you won't be able to flag one down on the street anywhere.
the neighborhood immediately surrounding emory is pretty nice, and bikeable. it's also close to the highlands which kind of hipsterish. i wouldn't ride my bike at night, though.
smoking in bars has become pretty rare in atlanta, but some still allow it. clubs aren't really my scene but i've heard atlanta has some of the best.
