I submitted in the first few hours that applications were accepted and still haven't heard anything.

Emory 3L c/o 2011. I'll take questions for a bit. I'll only answer the questions I think won't out me, are specific enough to not be regurgitation, etc. Ask about life in Atlanta, too.

I will do this until I get bored. Go.

edit: On second thought, this isn't the appropriate venue for this discussion. See here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150918

+1, and they are not negotiating.


Really? What were you asking for and what did they give you? If anyone else got a merit scholarship, would you mind sharing how much and your stats?

Well to be fair isn't emory's median gpa like 3.51 so he's above median for GPA, and they dont really seem to care about bumping their lsat median.

Also, Emory is known to look at more than numbers when deciding on scholarships. There was a poster on here last year who didn't get any money, and a friend of his with either the same or slightly worse numbers did. He asked Ethan about it, and he was apparently told that people were put into groups based on things like propensity to attention and community impact/unique experiences along with numbers, and that scholarships were decided from there. For non Woodruff finalists, I think the top scholarship last year was 72k, and I somehow ended up in that group along with people who had much higher numbers than I did.

It's possible that admissions changed things up this year though, so who really knows.

on LSN a 166/2.4 just go in who was rejected/waitlisted at every other school they applied to.

They also went below both the 166 wall AND the 3.0 gpa wall for some guy whose parent was an alumni, and he said on LSN that he thinks it wasnt because of that...lol :oops:

Schools ranked past the T25 hVe a very difficult time in Florida getting past the big 3, or as we say in Miami, "Los grande tres".

Depends. For the bigger/corporate type firms Emory + a compelling reason for being there is going to be golden. But most of the legal work in the state is comprised of a more "local boy" feel, where almost everyone is from in state schools and some will have that alumni bias. Even then though, if you're from the area or have some sort, you'll at least have name recognition, which Emory does generally carry throughout Florida.

Thanks. I will consider both Atlanta and Florida. Im from Florida. My feeling is that Emory will open more doors in more places including Florida. From a previous thread, there is a nice Emory contingent in Florida firms. IMO @22 or 30, is irrelevent.

I think word on the street is Emory has a slightly better rep in FL than UF/FSU. How much probably depends.

If its strictly based on ranking, as USNEWS and bitter TLS posters would have you believe, than Emory is a slam dunk despite falling 8 spots in the ranking. In addition, If the florida legal market continues to dry up, like it certainly appears to be, than where is a Miami FSU and UF graduate to go? Thats where status on a national scale becomes exceedingly important.
Imagine a respectable recruiter from a decent firm, thats been accepting Emory applicants at 22 ,say to himself, oh no emory is now 30 no more jobs to emory alumni until they go back up 8 spots.

USNews rankings matter more over time from what I've gotten. Nobody notices 8 slots over 1 year - it's only if it stays there.
