Were those lawyers from South Florida or from all over? Not doubting you -- I'm only curious. I have a feeling that Emory would carry a good name in North or even Central Florida, and on the same token I wouldn't be surprised if Miami doesn't think much of it.
I went to Vanderbilt for undergrad. I really didn't like Nashville at all. I live in Atlanta and I have been in the Emory area a number of times and it just has a better vibe as far as colleges go. Vanderbilt is right in the middle of Nashville but it has no college feel. The area of Atlanta where Emory is has a great atmosphere for college kids in my opnion.
Well, I just got in at Vandy. So, now I have the Vandy vs. Emory dilemma. I pretty sure I'm leaning towards Vandy based on job prospects, family, and because I really liked it during my visit. It'll be tough to pass up the money Emory is giving me, but I think Vandy is worth it.
