Looking on LSN it seems Emory has a 3.0 GPA wall of death as well. This makes no sense as 166's 3.0-3.2s which dont boost median but drag down GPA are getting in with $$ yet 167s/168s with 2.9s are getting the shaft....

From your lips to God's ears.

BTW-does Emory ever notify via email or phone, or do they just send acceptances in the mail?

It seems like Emory is not trying too hard to get that median LSAT to 167 this year. I think they are in a holding pattern and they will pull a WUSTL in the next year or so.

I'm just curious... did anyone who went through the whole "you said you read information on our website that didn't exist yet" stuff get accepted? :lol:

Why, as a dean for a top school, would you wait on trying to improve your class profile / rankings ? Doesn't seem very smart to me. Admitting a 167/below3 vs a 166/3.0 only does positive things - 25% gpa remains unchanged because both are below that #, while median LSAT goes up with the 167.

No shit. That is my point, they do not seem to be trying to bump up that median LSAT this year. It will stay at a 166. From the talks I have had with 1L students this year, they are giving less scholarship money out this year.

I just want to point out that on LSN the median for Emory admits right now is 167 and needing quite a few sub 167 admits to drop it to 166.

Just got an "application status update" e-mail and froze..... Only to find no new information (my application is being reviewed this time, but I figured as much). C'mon Emory don't do that to me!

Did all pending applicants receive the "your file is in review e-mail"? To me it seemed much more like a "please stop sending us more stuff. no really, we have enough." e-mail disguised as a status update ;)

For most schools, median LSAT of admits > median LSAT of attendees.

I got that email. Honestly, I like knowing that I will have my Emory decision in hand before any of my deposits are due. I wish I could say the same about other schools I applied to in October.
