Expound, please?



I have seen the differences to within of a point or so on the LSAT or .1 GPA, In the past 5 posts there have been 81k, 87k, and 90k. Whereas for example UMN would have given all of them 84k or Iowa just gives full, half, or nothing. Just interesting to me that they seem to set each individual scholarship much more closely than many other schools.


It's smart. It's allowing them to outbid other schools. It's dumb to give out the scholarships that Minnesota is giving out. They gave out 84k to 166/sub 3.0s - and no one is going to give out that kind of money to hose numbers.

Edit: schools of similar rank

No luck. They will not negotiate scholarships in any way. :?

I'm still waiting too. I submitted in December... think it's safe to assume I'll be receiving a wait list/rejection letter?

I'm in the same boat. I think it's safe to say that if we haven't heard by now we're probably getting the wait list email next week... :?

That's what I'm hoping for! Though to be honest, on law school numbers, they haven't handed out many rejections either. This is excruciating.

I think there's great reason for hope. If LSN is at all representative of admissions thus far, Emory hasn't accepted the dozens of 161s, 162s, 163s and 164s it needs to comprise a class. Right now they've only gone after big fish--166 and 167--but will soon have to find the other 40% to 50% of the class.

And note--Emory is among the very last schools to issue acceptances, rejections and WLs. Looking at previous years, there are only a few people who report acceptances at the 161 level, though we know from school-reported data that Emory has at least 60 161s and below. I figure 161s are the last to be admitted, at a point when most people have stopped updating LSN and have moved on the admitted student forums. The data never get reported, but we know these people exist. Bottom line is that there is still lots of good news coming for some 161s to 164s

This is awful! All the other schools rejected me ASAP, didn't give me the false hope... I think I like it better that way.

i think a lot of that might be waitlist action. i think emory and many t30 schools are going to have bigger yield percentage issues than anticipated for this cycle. many people on this forum have predicted a monster WL season, because of the record low application stats. that's good for us, those with pending applications. however, i'm starting to really worry about how that will affect my scholarship negotiating.

Though there's yet good reason to hope for 160-164 acceptances, there's probably no hope for negotiating scholarships, especially at Emory. I wonder how much of lower LSAT half at Emory comes off the WL. WL is still a very dangerous game for t30 admissions committees. Schools have to act quickly to maintain a high yield, high lsat average and high gpa. If a school takes too long to fill a class, not only does the yield drop dramatically, but the best 164s and 165s go to other schools.

Still waiting...Emory should really reevaluate the timing of their decision process. For student recruiting purposes, I do think it puts the school at a disadvantage.

I received an email from Emory financial aid a few hours before receiving my letter on 3/18. Submitted 2/5. Good luck to everyone waiting.

Nope :/

It's ridiculous how long they're taking. I did two rounds of applying. Had my first round sent out by 12/07 and second round sent out 2/05.

Emory is still the only school I haven't heard back from and I sent the app in the first round. Very very very frustrating.

Nothing today. Nice to know that Emory was dead serious about the March 29th date.

They're desperate for 166s and 167s. They take their sweet time focusing on the 166s and 167s first, then at the very end of the cycle get to the other half of their class, the 161-164 crowd. Emory's lsat/gpa stats are poorer compared to peer private schools, BC, BU, GW, W&M (public), Notre Dame, W&L, Fordham. Emory can only hope for 166/167 leftovers, so they have to take a little longer.

Agreed. This is the way it works. You make sure you have some acceptances on the high end (meaning, bribery) before you start throwing out too many on the low end. Otherwise, too many on the low end matriculate then USNWR is dinging you on your medians. It's a stupid game, but until a couple of top schools say "enough," it will continue...

I wasn't really looking at Emory strongly initially, but I'm starting to like it more and more. I could imagine living in Atlanta for a couple years. admit me, please?
