|On our way to the airport, middle lane|
We got to the airport fairly fast since there was no traffic that early in the morning. On our way I noticed that there was a line on the freeway where it was in between both sides and there was undisturbed traffic running through it. It was really cool because it was separated from both sides of the freeway by a wall and it stretched pretty far.

We arrived at the airport with plenty of time, checked in our bags and got our tickets. Four of us got to skip the lengthy security line which was surprisingly short. I was glad I was one of them because I didn't have to take my shoes off or anything. We waited for less than 5 minutes for the others and we gathered together to discuss breakfast and flight time. We had a little less than an hour til our flight by the time we decided to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. We ordered water meanwhile we decided what to eat. Since there was a lot of people coming in the waiter took a while to return and take our order. We were ready to order and so we did quickly for time's sake. We waited a while for our food and when it arrived we only had about 10 minutes before we had to leave. I finished fast, I was the second done, after John. Everyone was done soon after and we left. I noticed the bags under the table and since Jun had already exited the restaurant and her bag was there so I took it to her.

The tour started off with an awesome inside presentation from an admissions officer. He showed us a video about what life is like at Emory and it was an awesome video that featured regular students at Emory and what student life was like! Then we moved on to asking questions about admissions. After someone asked about deadlines for college applications he asked us who was exited to apply to colleges and I raised my hand fast, as soon as my hand was up everyone had their eyes on me and I lowered it back down because I got a bit embarrassed since I was like the only person who raised their hand. We learned a lot of things about Emory, it is a medium sized university with two campuses founded at different times. The second was founded by the owner of Coca Cola being the biggest sponsor and he's still the one who donated the most money to Emory. So as an aftermath the word Pepsi is a taboo on campus and most of this city. We leaned that the admissions officers looked for four major factors that a student must have to be accepted, preparation, potential, personality, and perspective. We can turn in up to six recommendations two of which must be from teachers. I asked about the early decision deadlines and he said November 1st-15th, I asked because I plan to apply for early decision to the college of my choice. They use the common app so that is very convenient for those who apply. Another good thing about it is that 92% of the freshman class make it to senior year at Emory. Finally I found the southern accent to sound really cool! It was awesome to listen to all the questions and answers and I learned a lot, makes me wonder how the Rice tour we missed because of the storm was like.

|Our Tour Guide Talking To Us About Food|
After everything was done we went to eat an amazing diner at Community BBQ!!! It was amazing as soon as we came in the mouthwatering smell from the BBQ screamed at us "you chose the right place!!!" We were all tired from the tour and were hungry and ready to eat! The staff was amazing and I even got a shirt from there. We had a lot of different food and it was all great!!! I tasted real mac and cheese for the first time and I loved it!!! Although the collard greens were fabulous it wasn't to my taste. We had a great dinner and we devoured the scrumptious food, it was to die for!
