Emory 165

Postby hotdoglaw » Sun Feb 21, 2010 5:40 pm

Last years LSN numbers seem to show that a 165 and any reasonable GPA meant an acceptance at Emory. This year, LSN shows 166+ admit and a 164 waitlist. How do you interpret this? Is Emory trying to boost their median or are the 165 admits coming?

I think the answer is both. The people admitted already are in their target range. These people will probably be admitted first and Emory will try to gauge how many of those people will matriculate. Eventually they will have to let in people who are below 166 and 3.7, and once they gauge the current acceptances those people will start getting in.

as someone who has a 165 im interested in this too. I emailed an admissions official and flat out asked if they were going to admit any 165's (maybe moving their walls of rejects one lsat point from the 164 barrier last year) and their words were " I would be surprised if we did not accept a good number of people with 165's"

Not to post selfishly or to hijack the thread, but.... both. Any chance someone with a 166/3.3 gets in this year? Thoughts?

Well I have a 167 3.5+ and haven't heard back yet. Thought I would be in the running for some of their generous aid, but who knows?

Unfortunately it doesn't look like they are being all that generous this year...at least compared to years past.
