Is the Emory app still due to go live around mid-Oct?

FYI to anyone working on their Emory application tonight instead of going out and having fun and/or a life: you can start it today, but you can't submit it until October 21.

I'm not sure if you all know this, but I met with an Emory representative at my school. He said no matter when you apply, you should not hear back until February. He seemed very serious - "you absolutely will NOT hear back before February, even if you applied today."

This will be a change from last year, when applicants first began hearing back around the tail end of December. Any reason why this is? Did Emory post their application later than usual?

Emory posted the app way late. I think it went live around Oct 15 or so. Then, applicants couldn't submit it until the 21st of that same month.

That's really interesting; last year Emory mailed me my decision less than 2 weeks after I went complete.

The Emory application requires you to state that you had read the Emory Law Character and Fitness guidelines on their website. This website wasn't up until like the 25th or so. Meaning that if you did submit on the 21st, you were contacted by the Dean a few days later pointing out that you verified that you had read a thing that didn't exist at the time, and asking you to go read the website and reverify.

After all the hoopla caused by that Above the Law post last year, you would think that the school would go out of its way to portray itself in a positive light. Instead it is the last school to post its application, then prevents students from submitting it until later, and now is doing something that students absolutely hate in holding its decisions for months. Of course the school should be allowed to make decisions whenever it pleases, but for a school that has been under fire for not having its shit together, Emory seems to be going out of its way to prove its detractors correct. If anyone from the school is viewing this site, I would hope that that person would take this post to heart. This message is coming from someone who views Emory as his top choice and yet is growing more weary by the day.


I gotta be honest, though. I'd rather they spent their money on things that will actually matter to my education rather than trying to six sigma their admissions process.

Well I agree with that, for sure. But I don't think these shortcomings are a matter of money. I think it's a matter of professionalism and of putting out the best possible product (in this case, the school). If every other top school can successfully post an application way before Emory and every other school can have the website working before people who you directed to it are supposed to read it, is it unreasonable to ask the same of Emory? As far as the timeliness of decisions, I agree that it's not a huge deal in the whole scheme of things. But when you add that lag to a series of other lags, it raises some red flags.

That happened to me. Do you think it will be held against me?

Honestly? yeah I think it will be held against you but with your numbers you'll get in anyway, they may not offer you as much money. I'm cynical though, I think that them holding that character and fitness section was a test to the early applicants. Emory seems like they can be dickbags at times.

Also happened to me. It might hurt a little, but I don't think it'll be a death nail.

I don't think this was a test, I think they just didn't update their website on time. For example, they still have not updated their class profile to 2013, but this doesn't effect your application at all.

I had figured I was ok to check the box because I called the admissions office and specifically asked whether they wanted me to disclose my two speeding tickets (the only misdemeanors I have ever committed). But whatever, I'm thinking I'll be fine, so long as Emory's magic number doesn't go up from 166 (I doubt it will this cycle).

Yeah I think keeping their medians up will matter more than slapping us on the hand for something thats half their fault. From LSN it seems like 166 + is an pretty much auto admit.
