Pros
  • Well respected in the industry (Film, Media, Journalism)
  • Nice renovations to campus
  • Great classes that challenges you to think critically
  • In the heart of Boston, so very urban campus if that's what you like
Cons
  • Very elitist student body
  • Not diverse in ethnicity or class
  • A bubble, everyone operates in an Emerson vacuum and is very arrogant (cliche arts school)
  • Lack of diverse professors, therefore if you're a student of color you will be less likely to have your work critiqued by someone who looks like you and has lived your experiences
  • Can't use film equipment unless in the film production. In tours they'll show you the equipment but unless you're directly enrolled you're not allowed to access it
  • Not a very strong alumni base (they're everywhere, but not willing to help as everyone sees each other as competition)
  • Everything is a competition. So all the clubs you need to try out, audition, submit a resume to join any group on campus which leads to popularity contest
Emerson opened a lot of doors for me, so I can't dismiss that fact. However, I don't think it was necessary for me to go to Emerson as opposed to another top university for communications (UVA, Boston U, NYU).
