Hold up, I'll be right back with some tissues.

lol.

And I think someone made the point earlier -- nobody has received an acceptance, waitlist, or denial from Emory yet, so speculation on their admittance policies is pretty on-topic. (at least moreso than your rejection from Berkeley).

Anyone hear back from Emory yet!? Anyone know of my chances with a 165/3.92 + soft factors? It's February and I applied back in November...should I be worried?

There are probably a million questions you could have asked that would have been acceptable. That was the only one that wouldn't be.

Unless its sarcasm. If so, genius.

The entire 16 pages have been about us not hearing back yet, if you picked any of them you would have gotten your answer.

Glad someone caught it ;), I got the same email we all did on the 10th saying

"Greetings from Emory Law. In a few days, we will begin notifying applicants of their admission status. Please add this email address (admission@law.emory.edu) to your list of approved recipients to ensure our messages are not filtered into your spam folder. We appreciate your patience and hope these reminders will assist in the process:..."

I know. I wish they wouldn't be so damn thoughtless and had told us it would be mid-February when we get our responses.

sorry if this has been discussed...but the email said scholly info would be included in the acceptance notice. any idea if that's it, or if there's any way to qualify afterwards? emory seems like such an anomaly in this entire cycle and i can't figure out if i like it or not!

They said that all scholarship info will be in the acceptance package and that they don't negotiate with terrorists.

T-14 is used as an adjective modifying the phrase "other options"

his phrasing is a little vague (a comma between "other" and "t-14" would have been clearer) but the fact that we all know t-14 refers to the top 14 schools in the us news rankings should lead you to the correct interpretation


Ummm, no, that's not the case. "T-14" modifies the noun "options". "Other" is an adjective that modifies the noun phrase "T-14 options". His phrasing isn't vague, it is wrong, and I agree that adding a comma would fix the error. Let me illustrate so that you understand the appropriate interpretation.

The original statement was this: "There are plenty of students here who chose Emory over other t-14 options." Let's substitute simpler terms for a clear example.

Try this: "Plenty of people chose water over other alcoholic beverages." Don't you see how this is completely different from, "Plenty of people chose water over other, alcoholic beverages"? It completely changes the meaning of the sentence. Anyway, I know that you know this, but TLS is no place to defend sloppy grammar. We are going to top law schools and therefore we must be anal :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

keep in mind that you posted a graph that

a.) has LSAT scores on the x-axis
b.) is from a school that places more emphasis on gpa


keep in mind yourself that:

a) a vertical line in the coordinate plane is a set of points that share the same x coordinate. As you've pointed out, LSN places the lsat on the x-axis, so a vertical acceptance line indicates a strong lsat cutoff, and therefore markedly atomistic admissions.
b) Berkeley really places no more emphasis on gpa. It admits students with better grades because it is a better school. Even if it were true that Berkeley places more emphasis on grades, there would have to be a horizontal green line as clear as Emory's vertical line to suggest its numbers are just as numbers driven.
c) in case you want more evidence, please see these other graphs. Note that only WashU--the most notoriously numbers lsat driven law school--has a graph that approaches Emory's.

d) me and my 168 are perfectly fine with Emory's decision criteria. :D

LOL OK

lets please stop arguing for/against emory having a holistic admissions process

it (1) can't be proven since the ad-dean himself said the LSN numbers were awry (2) doesn't matter since decisions are rolling in this week anyway

Here's an excerpt from an e-mail that I received from Mr. Rosenzweig on Saturday. Sounds like it should be soon.


...Thank you for your interest in Emory Law. Decisions will begin next week and through March 31st.

i wonder if that means we'll be receiving them this week, or that they'll be making the decisions this week, or that they'll be sending them out this week?

The information from emory is neither inaccurate nor misleading. It is simply impressively imprecise.
