And yeah I think you're pretty much an RA/peer mentor. Sounds terrible for academics, but you do get free housing plus a stipend.


Couldn't agree more! Yeah, it'd be challenging to do that as a 1L I bet, but that's a pretty sweet deal... I wonder if you get free food too? If so, you'd have very few expenses! I'd probably still pass on the offer, though :|

Anybody with >170 LSAT and <3.5 GPA (but over 3) in yet?

If Emory can come close to matching my other schollies, I'm sold pending no top 10.

Yeeeeah definitely going to pass on the Greek Life job. Looks like a good deal for people who don't mind dealing with drunk 18 year olds.

I don't know, I think it's an excellent way to learn focus and patience through your 1L year. Since, you know, you won't learn that otherwise. :wink:

all current students got this email too. if you budget your time well during the day, i see no reason why you couldn't do it. unless living in a fraternity house would affect your sleep during the week. that's something most law students don't appreciate. sleep is so crucial to performing well.

I had my best consecutive semester grades when I lived in a fraternity house. YMMV.

Yep. Best semester grades I've ever had (dean's list) were living in the sorority house.

in today with $36,000 over three years. I wasn't expecting to even get in, so I haven't really given Emory much thought... does anyone know what job prospects are like for IP out of Emory? (I'm EE).

So, they basically want you to be the frat equivalent of a house mom?? HA! <would potentially consider being a house mom, cushy 'job'>

Maybe I'm confused, it sounds more like an RA?


I assure you that being a mom for a sorority would be a billion times easier than being a dad for a frat, lol

And yeah I think you're pretty much an RA/peer mentor. Sounds terrible for academics, but you do get free housing plus a stipend.


Having to tell undergrads not to drink and the like when I went to a college where drinking was legal sounds like a bad time.

I know they say they don't negotiate, but given your situation with Columbia maybe they'd reconsider. I'd at least call.

just speaking from experience and based on conversations i've had, i'd say they wouldn't negotiate. there are people here right now who took emory over cls, so that wouldn't really be a shock to their system to learn that someone was making this choice. unless you think emory low-balled thinking above poster wouldn't come anyway. possible i guess, but doesn't seem likely. never hurts to try.
