Emory Class of 2013!

Postby lawduder » Sun Mar 07, 2010 8:54 pm

Anyone decide on Emory yet? Their generous scholarship offer has almost sealed the deal and I can't wait for ASD on April 9th and 10th!

Yeah, I'm pretty much decided. I want to stay in the Atlanta area and with a good scholarship from a top 20 school, it's too good to pass up! Have you joined the FB group yet? I'm really excited to start getting to know my future classmates!

What kind of scholarship offers has Emory been throwing out this year if you don't mind me asking?

lower than last year. in the past 96k was common. i did everything i could to obtain a big scholarship (applied for the woodruff with a strong LOR, have #s well above both 75%, vistied campus for a tour, called back, and sent a LOCI). i ended up with 75k, but i have seen a couple of 81ks on LSN.

Emory is my top choice right now. Atlanta is a great city, so it'd be hard to pass up Emory. Looking forward to seeing you all in a month! I might come in on Thursday to watch the Cubs/Braves game that night (Braves are on a road trip starting that Friday), so let me know if you'd want to go and maybe a group of us could get seats together.

I'd be down for that...I'm in Atlanta already so if that's the plan just let me know and I'll be there!

+1

Visiting over my spring break in a few weeks and am pretty excited. I'm down to Emory and USC, and I'm fairly certain at this point I'll be in ATL. Can't make it to ASD either, but I hope to get a good feel for the school during my visit.

i'm 95% sure i'll be at emory this fall... waiting to hear from all schools/for the deposit deadline (whichever comes first) before i fully commit, but i can't see myself changing my mind considering that if the other schools have taken this much time to decide they want me they proly aren't planning on giving me money (and if they do, it's very unlikely they'll match emory's offer). excited for fall to come now that this loooong admissions process is coming to a close!

I'll probably be in jeans and something other than a t-shirt. Also, sent my first deposit today!

95% sure I'm going to Emory! The other 5% of me is considering that ridiculously cheap tuition at UGA...but more than likely, I'll see y'all in August!

I'm getting excited about Emory ASW! I applied in October and basically forgot about Emory until they accepted me with $$$ in early March. I guess thats what happens when they don't provide a status checker...

Not sure what other information they'd need to give us, did you not get the little pamphlet thing? I think form this point we just show up on April 9th-10th.

I think this is true...there was something kind of unclear, maybe one of you guys will know-do we need to check-in at the school before the event on Friday night? Or do we just show up at the house for the reception?

First---you have to register here Emory Law ASD Registration.

The pamphlet just had a basic schedule. Friday night, there is a mixer from 6-8 at the home of a 1980 grad. It's just about a mile from the school. Saturday, we check-in at 8:15 and the day lasts until 4. Seems pretty basic, with sessions about what to expect as a law student, financial aid, tours, etc.

This might seem like an odd question, but does the law school have an official position on macs v. PCs? I haven't heard anything about it so I'd assume that macs are okay.
