ATL is very ties-sensitive, but you're right that attending Emory/UGA law is probably sufficient to show a tie to Atl. Someone from a random non-GA school should be concerned about ties though.Anonymous User wrote:No it's not necessarily a negative.

Thank you all for clarifying. Regardless having pretty strong ties, seems it doesn't matter if I'm not top 20%.
I still have no answer for the diversity hire question. TBH, not even sure if it's an answerable one, but if any of y'all have anecdotes to share, I'd be glad to read them. I'm no gunner, not yet at least, but I'll take any advantage I can get.
