has anyone negotiated a scholarship yet? I got the same scholly offer at a school in the T10 but would def consider Emory as I like the Atlanta area and have a best friend moving there...but living in the city really begs for an increase in scholly!

Historically, don't expect "negotiations" and Emory CoL isn't as bad you think. Pretty comparable to anywhere else give or take a bit more. Considering ATL is sweet, I'd actually says it's a bargain.

What do you consider are the best options for housing?

I'm really praying that c/o 2017's size is as small as possible! I'm also going to bring this up next week during visiting day!

ahhh great so there's two levels of waitlist?! I read about that last year but hoped this year that wasn't happening....cool. Regular as well. Which means I'm guessing we are in for a May+ wait.

Sorry to hear about the WLs. At least you're not out of the fight though :)

********************VISITING DAY UPDATE********************

VISITING DAY WEBSITE: http://www.law.emory.edu/index.php?id=6830
VISITING DAY PROGRAM: http://www.law.emory.edu/fileadmin/NEWWEBSITE/Admission/VisitingDay2014program__singles.pdf

1. So it seems that Emory has ran out of hotel rooms for students in the Emory Conference Center Hotel (this is just speculation) but according to the visiting day website, people are now only able to get rooms in Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta. I was luckily able to get the room at ECCH which is better IMO because I hear that the activity thing that they have planned on Friday Night is walking distance away from the ECCH Hotel. I am not sure how far Courtyards is from the thing. ECCH is a 4 star hotel and I'm not sure how many stars Marriott is.

2. Visiting day's schedule is up and can be seen here: http://www.law.emory.edu/fileadmin/NEWWEBSITE/Admission/VisitingDay2014schedule.pdf

3. Apparently we have cases to read for the Law School 101 part of the visiting day event. This is from the visiting day website:

Visiting Day Law School 101 Cases

Students with a last name starting with A—F: Professor Alexander: Download case >>
Students with a last name starting with G-M: Professor Freer: Download case >>
Students with a last name starting with N-Z: Dean Schapiro: Download case >>


4. Apparently after I registered for visiting day, the thing said that the dress code was: comfortable. Does anybody have a clue what that means? What will you all be wearing? And for those of you who are going to the cookoff on Friday Night, what will you wear to that? On the top of the visiting day schedule, it says that the dress is casual for all events. Is a dress shirt and jeans okay?

We have to stay for the entire day to be able to pick up our $75 gift card at around 3:45pm

I look forward to getting to meet some of you :)
