There's nothing to say about Emerson other than the fact that it's really a combination of dumb luck and what you pick as a major that determines whether or not you have a good experience. The major I was in offered a decent amount of contact with professors/instructors, one course with the acting chair of the department. I had one notoriously hard professor three times, but it was worth the effort to learn the material. Some of the hardest classes that I got the worst grades in, were coincidentally, the best classes I ever took in my life. In a word, it was challenging in a way I didn't expect. Some of them were almost experimental in nature, and there was a fair amount of innovation in terms of teaching. Yes, there are going to be snooty, self-absorbed rich kids "buying" a degree with the expectation of making it "big", when it actually requires talent, but it doesn't necessarily take away from a decent experience with some extraordinary teachers. All in all, there was a drastic statistical lean towards good academic progress versus "slacker-dom". I expected it to be much easier than it actually was. The majority of my instructors were good at what they were teaching. Some of them mentored me, some didn't even know how to pronounce my name. It is expensive, and unless you're committed to communications, invest in something different. And it's supposedly getting more selective in terms of admissions.
