I am sure y'all have seen this but this is from their website:

" What is the process if I am admitted from the waitlist?
Once we offer you admission via phone, you have 48 hours to decide whether to enroll at Emory Law. If you are admitted before June 1, a nonrefundable tuition deposit of $250 is due upon acceptance, followed by $500 by June 1. After June 1, a nonrefundable tuition deposit of $750 is required. The deposits will be credited to your first semester tuition."


It sounds like they just want the deposit not that it is binding... I think they would mention that clearly if it was.


Thanks, I do remember seeing this now, just didn't remember the offer for admission being via telephone. I agree with you that based upon the language, the deposit is not binding.

Yea I remember seeing this. Like you, I doubt it's binding.

I spoke with the admissions office and while they won't commit to anything, I get the distinct impression that calls will start Monday. Good luck to us all!

I just noticed on LSN someone updated an hour ago that they were accepted off the wait list. Hopefully this is a good sign.

FWIW, this time last year a crap ton of dings on the waitlist came. Survive the wave of dings and maybe we will get pulled off later on :)

I just wanted to wish everyone good luck with Emory's waitlist. I loved the school and was very happy to get in. I wish I didn't have the debt I already had from UG. I would have loved to join you all. I hope my scholarship and seat goes to someone on TLS!

runnerfun - Congrats on getting in! I don't mean any disrespect and I hope you won't be offended, but ... your LSAT is barely at their median and your GPA is way below the median. Why do you think they picked you? Diversity? Softs? From Atlanta? Emory undergrad? Did they say anything that would shed light on this? Congrats again ... jelly!

I'm technically diverse, but my minority status is not underrepresented in the graduate school world. I am geographically diverse, but not sure how much that comes into account. Softs are probably it, my current job is very taxing and lends itself to anecdotal personal statements and LOCIs. Not from Atlanta, but my undergrad is very well known in the region and I had a very strong upward trend in my grades from the beginning to end of undergrad.

Oftranch- I didn't think I had a realistic shot at Emory, so it was catapulted into my #1 choice when I found out I was on the WL.

Runnerfun,

Congrats!! you must be over the moon.

Did they offer any scholarships - do they have any money left?

I had a phone message I only heard this morning - I called back and left a message.
So excited !

Wow, Greek, do you have a better offer?
Emory is still sending out offers, not only this week, but also, I was told, after June 1st - a long wait, I know.
Where did you decide to go?

Good luck for the future

They did offer me a scholarship, I'd rather not disclose the amount though. There's definitely money left though!
