Are there any differences between the programs?

I've interviewed at NSU an Emory. Bottom line is both said that close to if not all of their seniors had a couple of job offers before they graduated the programs. Emory is more expensive. I think Emory is changing for 24 months to a 27 month program, which is the same length as NSU. Emory is a more established program and has better name recognition for whatever that is worth. Both have a classroom, labs, and simulator operating room setups. Does anyone know if either program is better in any significant way? For example, are the professors better, are the clinical rotation opportunities better or more numerous, is the caliber of student peers better, is the program curriculum better etc.? Is there a general consensus that one program is better than the other or are all the programs more or less putting out the same quality anesthesiologist assistants?
