I know the feeling. I have no experience with the other schools listed, but I would add the Emory ASU group to the list,; they practice at the Woodruff athletic center on the campus. Jon Reading and Mike Magno teach there. A very good and welcoming group.

Schedule here: http://www.emoryaikikai.com/sched.html
I am going to add my vote for Emory Aikikai with Michael Magno and Jon Reading Sensei's. I was fortunate to train with them for a little while and both got their instruction from some very incredible Sensei's. They are most certainly not a "belt" factor or a Rex Kwon Do school. They are associated with the Aikido schools of Ueshiba (ASU at www.asu.org). I lived up in Symrna when I was training at Emory. Everyone there is extremely welcoming. They do have a website and you can get to it by going to the asu.org site and looking up dojo Index. Hope that helps
