I read those to have basically meant you are in, but they are waiting for $$ people to withdraw so they can redistribute the funds and give these candidates the offer they deserve. As for the rest of the waitlisters- there is no difference. Some people got a differently worried email around midnight at Thursday because the systems were down.
^this. also... I understand everyone is anxious about being on the WL (I am too) but worrying about how many waitlists there are seems a little futile. Regardless of how many waitlists there are, being on a waitlist means that you do not necessarily have a spot at Emory. make your arrangements at another school, write a LOCI/visit Emory/do your waitlisted thang, and then see if you are offered a spot later. if you are WL at Emory, I'm sure you have many other wonderful offers that you can find happiness with, and if you get offered a spot at Emory - GREAT, but realize that if not then that is okay too. actual law school is going to be stressful enough, picking apart the words of a dean's email and working yourself into a frenzy now is not worth the stress in my opinion.
