This post reads more like an advertisement attempting to increase applications to a particular law school rather than as a genuine experience. Seems unusual for one's first post.

I see. I apologize then, that was kind of rude. My surprising acceptance prompted me to join this forum.

Congratulations on getting into Emory!


There are a lot of naysayers on TLS.

If you define "naysayers" as people who give generalized advice that apply to the vast majority of situations, sure.... yeah, I guess there are naysayers.

To the OP, I sincerely doubt that your LOR's made the difference. What you said earlier - you had a very high GPA is what Emory take you. They play the rankings game just like everybody else.

This is the weirdest brag I've ever seen.

Yea, getting diversity with a urm who also boasts a median is a pretty good deal for them

For someone so proud of the accept, s/he is sure quick to pull down the story.

At this point I couldn't be happy for you if I wanted to...
