I didn't graduate from Emory, but my external thesis supervisor for my degree from the University of Ottawa was a professor at Emory. He was great by the way: a formidable educator and scholar.

I knew a few people who went there. Maybe, you should broaden your question to include other "Southern Ivy League" schools.

Yes I went there. At least that's what my "diploma" says Laughing

Nice to see a fellow grad! How much per month are you making? I make 5.2 mill. That's definitely a good name to have on your diploma.

The lack of positive replies to this is rather comforting. At least graduates of top-ranking private universities aren't flocking to Korea to teach ESL... yet.

The day I meet an Ivy League grad here in Korea teaching ESL, I will shed a tear for my once-great but now fallen country.

Well, there might be some people here who have graduated from ivy league schools with TESOL degrees. I getting my masters in education from an ivy league and am thinking about teaching in Korea next year. What's so strange about that?

Just as long as it's not because you can't find a better job in your home country. It depresses me to see economic refugees from America coming here because they basically have no better choice.

I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but honestly all my ESL teacher friends here, when I first asked them "so are you a teacher?" Their honest answer has been: "Yeah... I needed a job. *shrug*"

Come on Dharma, do we need to explain this?

Paying thousands of dollars for a brand name degree so that you can work for Mr Kim for $14/hour is....well.....kind of depressing.

Honestly, Korea is not a place to live and work long term! Focus on what you can do in the future back in your home country! That is the key! Korea is a dead end!

Teaching ESL in Korea is an experience. It is not a life. There are just too many things working against us here.

I'm just fielding the population over here to see if there are any Emory graduates.

(I don't know why there are immature replies on this thread.)

Why exactly do people feel the urge to ask if anyone graduated from the same universities? As if there's something beyond "Oh yeah, I took a class in that building" to talk about?
