Emory Woodruff Letter

I applied for the Woodruff at Emory, and I got a letter today stating the Woodruff committee was offering me an "enhanced scholarship" in the amount of 75k. I assume the letter means that I'm not going to be one of the finalists for a Woodruff, although it never says that explicitly. Did anyone else get a letter like this?

I got the same letter giving me the same amount of money. I was expecting more money...

I think that Emory may land a very weak class. Last year 96k was fairly common. This year it seems to be a lot of 60-75k. I would be shocked if they can keep the same medians. Any thoughts?

WashU gave me near a full ride yet Emory was very stingy. Given my personal experience, I want to say you are right though. Cannot be sure- given this economy, I don't know how generous other law school are being with scholarships.

Emory's medians were only 165/3.55... pretty sure they'll go up.

But what about relative to its peers?
