It looks like there are only about 5 people listed as "attending" on LSN, so I thought I'd give this a try. W&M anyone?

Could you tell us a little about your visit and what you liked about it?
You put an offer down? Damn.
To elaborate on "super".
Event went very well, reception friday night was good, had the opportunity to speak with an '04 grad who is employed in ATL and loves his job. He said his best friends from school are all in DC and NY working and had no problems getting jobs. This was an issue for me, since I want to prob return to DC when I finish.
School and Library buildings were very nice...students seemed generally friendly, happy, etc. I spoke with roughly 10 students who were not affiliated with the open house - ie they were just around studying - and they all had nothing but good things to say. All had chosen Emory over other schools ranked in the mid-20s, and all seemed happy about their choice. Someone has posted elsewhere on this board that the school is full of students who are bitter about not getting into a T-14, but this is not the impression I got at all.
The big draw for me was the professors. Ahdieh or however you spell his name put on a mock class and he came across really well. He also had some interesting and very honest/frank things to say about the USNEWS 06 situation. There were a bunch of others hanging around, and all seemed very engaging, etc. All the students kept remarking about how good the teaching quality was.
Also very much liked the neighborhood, surrounding areas, city, campus, etc. Atlanta is awesome (if you can deal with interstate traffic), and I really liked the neighborhood around Emory (and the campus itself). Speaking with profs and students I realized how much of an asset the city actually is: it seems the school has tons of corporate, federal, and public interest"field placements" and "externships" for credit that sound really interesting.
Sorry for the rambling post, but the weekend went well and I've been too lazy to write since getting back. feel free to PM me for details or questions etc. Like FutureLawyerMiami I am also leaning towards attending right now, except for a few waitlists im considering.
