I am considering applying to Emory. The campus is gorgeous, Atlanta is an awesome city, and it is a great school. However, my biggest concern is that the pre med acceptance rate into Medical School is like 56 percent, which is very poor compared to similar tier schools. My state school has a 54 percent acceptance rate. However, my state school is less competitive than Emory and therefore for a student looking at Emory, far easier to succeed. Another concern about the school, yet not as significant an issue, is the lack of a football team. How does that affect social life there? When people think college, they think football games and beer. Could any current or former Emory students please talk about this? If you were pre med, that would be excellent too.
