+1

I thought that was really nice of them to keep us informed. Especially seeing how other schools have handled this process, it makes me appreciate (and hope for that yes from) Emory even more!

also got the e-mail. Still not entirely sure what the advantage of being on priority wait list is. Anyone have any idea?

Also, is anyone on GW's wait list? And, if so did you get the wait list e-mail on friday about continued interest?

I guess you didn't go to the priority event at Emory, but it was made pretty clear at the event that the people on the priority waitlist have "priority" over the regular waitlist. They aren't giving the regular waitlist a closer look until the priority waitlist is used up. The dean said there are a few people put on the regular waitlist that still might get in with the priority candidates.
Hope that clears it up.. I think its definitely possible to get in off the regular waitlist you just have to decide if its worth the price tag.

edit: I think if you e-mail the dean and ask him where you stand he will be as honest as he can be with you.

That is very different from the WL description from GULC last week. The message there was to think of it as a round 2 in the admissions cycle, just with much less candidates. It wasn't good news for anyone on the GULC preferred WL who was thinking it would work like Emory. Then money was asked (smh), and the message seemed to be GULC WL should expect to pay full sticker. But, financial Aid office is always open.

I know there are people on WL's hoping for some merit money, but it is May in a few days. I would think all the money is gone, and you have to be realistic.

I want to attend XXX Law School, and pay full sticker, and that is why I am on the WL until the 99th of xxx when I have to sign my lease.

If you get offered some money, it should be bonus for a decision already made in your mind to attend. To sit on the WL and hope for a 75% merit award plus a free t-shirt in your correct size, in imho, asking too much. Cynical or pessimistic, it might sound, but I think it's realistic. Just like housing options. All of us on the WL should already know some of the housing options and put them into our notes. There is just too much money, debt and 3 years of your life involved in a decision like this to not take the time and have it all considered.

Priority waitlisted on 3/25. Haven't heard anything since. At least one person has already got in off the PW though, but haven't heard about any others. Have largely decided to sit out a cycle, but hoping for some WL movement soon so I can finalize my decisions.

I got in off the priority waitlist about 3 weeks ago--sorry for the delayed post (just got back from Europe). Emory gave me a decent scholarship and I will definitely be attending this fall. Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

They called me about 4 hours before my flight to Europe. Fortunately, they were SUPER accommodating with my international travels and communication was not a problem.

I did. I'm on the priority wait list - they seemed to indicate that they will be making decisions soon.

I feel like that means an acceptance. GW did the same thing with me the other week, and i was accepted two days later. I'm holding out just in case the unlikely event they offer some kind of scholarship happens.

I'm really sorry. That was never my intention, I just wanted to verify if it was a phone call to everyone on PW or just a select few. I wouldn't lose hope yet. It is still early, and I think there will be a lot of movement after the second deposit. Also, no guarantee that i will be accepted or that I will accept.

I'm on the PW and didn't get a phone call today. Honestly I'd rather know that there is at least movement for someone than not know anything at all, so thanks for checking in.
