Did you get a caller ID? I got a call from Atlanta today (no phone number came up), which I promptly answered, but the phone line was dead. Perhaps it was just a telemarketer but I've been on high alert for calls from any city from which I might get an important one :D


Yes I did :)

Hey guys - Emory 1L here. Happy to answer any questions if anyone wants to PM me! I remember how frustrating it was during the application process last year because it seems like compared to other schools on here there's a relative gap in info on Emory from current students!

Why does the admissions office come off as incredibly unorganized, specifically the student reps?

FedEX shipment from Atlanta notification = presumed acceptance. Yay!

Prior to sending a package, they will send you an email attached with a xeroxed pdf of your admission letter, so you will know it immediately after the decision is made. Although the mailing of the package would take quite a long time.

Hey guys, new to the forum. I know someone mentioned earlier in this thread that Emory usually sends decisions out in mid-January to mid-February and I haven't heard back yet so I'm wondering if that's a good or a bad thing. Have a lot of people received a decision yet?

Its not late enough in the cycle to worry. Plenty of people are still waiting to hear back.

Thank you that makes me feel much better. I really like Emory, but it's probably a little bit of a reach for me.

For most of us I believe it was in the first line of the acceptance letter. Not for you?

"you will be awarded a merit scholarship NO LATER THAN March 15th"

hoping to hear before that date.

From my understanding there's no hard GPA requirement but ELJ obviously typically takes top students that do well on the write-on. The other journals are great too though and they're more flexible with GPAs.
