They had a pipe burst, it happens, and they fixed the problem. The place was super nice, and the others I visited had a lot of non-Emory students, which was kind of a turn off, especially since I'm coming from a college town.
I signed with Campus Crossings as well. I visited all the places posted here and in the "class of" thread and none of them seemed like great deals. It's important for me to have the cliff shuttle close so I don't have to pay $700/semester to park on campus and having a furnished apartment makes the move stress free. I really didn't want to have to pay to buy all new furniture (moving my old stuff would cost about the same amount of money, too). That being said, I also actually liked Campus Crossings better than the other places I visited.
I have only really heard of two problems with Campus Crossings and both seem to be resolved. The first was an administrative hiccup the first week that the building was up and running and that the bus schedules didn't coincide with class schedules and there weren't enough buses to the law school. That was a minor nightmare for people the first week of school, but easily attributed to everything being brand new and working out the details.
The other was the flooding. It doesn't seem to me like pipes should be bursting but we did have a ton of rain. It was a major issue for some people but from what I understand the company that runs the place did right by those that had damage and had to live in hotels for a little while.
I have only heard good things barring those two mini-disasters. If I was moving in this year I would be weary and make sure to dot my i's and cross my t's but would have no problem living there.
