Why he chose Emory?

"Emory University has the right mix of academics and athletics. The academics are engaging and always take precedence over athletics. With that said, the latter are still important at Emory and not overshadowed by a football team. Additionally, the breadth of diversity here is incredible and the opportunities to volunteer and join clubs is stimulating."
