Goizueta chances and questions

edited November 2010 in Emory University
I'm currently planning on applying to Emory's goizueta school, and I wanted to know more information (perhaps from a current student) about the school and how good of a shot I have.
Here are my stats:
GPA: uw 94.44
SAT I: cr.m.w: 710.770.800
SATII: mathII: 760 bio: 730 us: 730
ACT: 33 (not sending)
APs- US, Bio, Lang, Euro-5 Macro&Microecon-4
Current APs: Spanish, Calc BC, Gov Lit
Notable ECs: DECA Regional&Chapter President, Varsity Tennis Team Captain, Model UN Chairperson, Mock Trial Team Captain, Intern at U.S. Senator's office
Awards: current NMSF (229), AP Scholar w/distinction, DECA International Event finalist, Model UN Outstanding Delegate, Williams College book award

-Questions:
-I know Goizueta is a very reputable school, but what do most kids do when after undergad there? Do many get jobs, go to b-schools, etc?
-I'm from the north, so I don't no much about the atmosphere at Emory. What is it like at Emory? What do people like best about the school?
-What is the curriculum at Goizueta? How competitive is the school?

    Isn't Goizueta a 2-year program? I don't think you can apply as an incoming freshman—unless there is some "preferred admission" thing? Otherwise, chancing you for getting into a business school you will be applying to at the end of your sophomore year seems futile.

    In terms of Emory itself, I would say there is a 90% chance you're in. You seem like a strong student, so getting in Goizueta shouldn't be difficult once you're in.

    In terms of your questions, I can't really answer any of them in great depth, though I do know that Goizueta graduates go onto great jobs and top B-Schools.
