    Wake Forest is solid academically and athletically. But Emory and Vanderbilt are just bigger -they're names employers have familiarity with outside the south.

    Personally, I like Wake Forest the best anyway. Even so, I think (at least from what I've heard, I'm in Southern California) that Vanderbilt's name is the most widely known. Emory's academics are probably a little better, though, and Vanderbilt's prestige is debatable.

    Emory on top, I guess.

    Completely Academically-
    Emory
    Vandy
    Wake

    More of a prestige/job setup/whatever thing-
    Vandy/Emory
    Wake

    Wake is only slightly behind, but is not as national of a school.
