    To many, Oxford is a backdoor admittance to Emory. Cleary it is easier to get in that Emory - however, lots of kids have been happy with a transition between the two schools. It's an entirely different experience no doubt, but don't underestimate the Oxford education. The great grades u all have may be worthy of an elite school, but sometimes we all need to do things in an unusual way to get ahead. Emory offers a couple of ways to get through Emory. I'm surprised more 'Elite' schools haven't come up with this sort of diverse learning. For all of you with the great grades going to Oxford, you'll be the big fish in the small (very small) pool. EVERYONE going to Oxford is capable though, so don't look down too much.
