Has anyone visited both Emory and Northwestern who would care to comment on which campus is nicer? (Honestly, this is just because I spent the summer of my sophomore-junior year at Northwestern, and disliked the campus. Up until then, I had really wanted to go to Northwestern. Emory is my top choice now, and, even though Im visiting in Aug., I'd just appreciate feedback.) Also, which school do you believe to be more prestigious: Vassar or Emory?

I visited Northwestern's campus and thought that the only nice thing about the school was its location on the lake. The buildings and the grounds were ugly, again except for the lake. I did like the location and the enviornment though, but I found Emory's campus, lifestyle, etc just to be much better. Also, I live in the NE and I would still say Emory is more prestigious than Vasser.

The two campuses are very different in feel, and it's somewhat like comparing apples and oranges--each person will have his own preference.
My son visited both Emory and Northwestern. He is a legacy at Northwestern, and really tried to like it, but he didn't. However, he could not put his finger on what he did not like about the campus-he mentioned it was too windy, too spread out--nothing major. He also was not crazy about the people he met. He applied ED to Emory and just finished his freshman year--he was very, very happy and can't wait to get back to school. On the other hand, one of his best friends goes to Northwestern, and she is very happy there.

When I was applying, I visited both Emory and Northwestern. I ended up not applying to Northwestern at all because the architecture was boring and plain, and the campus was itself not impressive, among other things. Emory, on the other hand, had its own unique style I'd never seen in any college I'd visited, and was amazing, extremely nice, and I felt I belonged. I applied, was accepted, and now will attend.
