What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Emory is surprisingly the perfect grounds for culturing new ideas. Even though it doesn't have a football team, Emory is still high in spirit and makes up for it in swimming and soccer. Above all, Emory is the perfect combination of nature-esque suburbia and busy city, since it is only ten minutes away from central Atlanta.

Emory Candler School of Theology is keen on fairness as they decline to hold personal interviews with prospective students because they want to ensure zero bias in the application process. As such, rather than visiting the school grounds, I rated Emory purely on credentials, helpfulness, and substance. Overall, the school is excellent, and the knowledgeable admissions team outshines any green lawn and sparkling sidewalk.
