I received acceptance with scholarship by email earlier today. In addition to the email body itself, they included a scan of the mailed letter. The nice thing about this approach is that it meant I also saw the scholarship offer at the same time, as opposed to other schools that send decisions by email but only send scholarship information by snail mail.
I know we're all eager and the waits can be stressful. Take a deep breath, relax, and know that you've done everything that can be done to show your accomplishments in the most positive light.
Agreed. One question for you though. Do you have better than a 165 lsat? Emory is very responsive with the 165+ crowd, who make up about 50% of their class. The frustration is that Emory takes its sweet time with the other half, the 161 to 164. I understand schools have to prioritize, but even BU, W&M and schools with similar stats were able to admit lower half LSATs back in January and February.
To answer your question, here is some detail about my numbers and dates for my Emory application:
Applied - March 1st.
Complete - March 4th.
Decision, Admitted - March 25th by email.
Scholarship - March 25th by email ($28,000/year).
GPA: N/A (Attended a college that did written evaluations instead of grades.)
Nontraditional (graduated 2004, working since then)
Out of state.

I meant to address just the part about whether Emory sends decisions by email or snail mail, so that is why I hadn't included any numbers or dates.
I understand being diligent in their decision making. I've only heard back from half the schools I applied to, and I am hanging on the edge of my seat for the others. But I know in my heart that constantly logging into the status checker and refreshing TLS is just making me think about it more, not relieving the experience of the wait. So, if you're able to, just focus on all the awesome stuff you wrote about in your applications and know that some of it might strike a cord.
