Fwiw, I tried to negotiate yesterday. Sent a well practised long mail describing my poverty and discussing scenarios and proposals that would help me choose Emory, but as expected I received a polite denial within an hour of the start of work from Dean Rosenzweig!

I had a pretty high schol anyway but was trying to request them for restructuring more than increasing it to full scholarship.

Don't be so discouraged. I find that their offerings are quite weird... like they don't make a lot of sense. Some people with higher numbers than mine (170/3.0~) received less, and others with lower (like 150s/3.5~) were offered nearly as much as I. I think they give out offers based on the likelihood of you attending. That's the only explanation I can come up with so far. If you go through this thread, you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm going to negotiate very soon, don't care if they're "not known to negotiate". I'll share the results.

We await your results


Hey same offer lol! I agree about YP but my numbers are good- not YP level good. Plus, I showed active interest. Meh, it's ok. They have to take their steps to ensure certain things, so I understand. But, I did withdraw as well.


It'll be a while, but I'll let y'all know as soon as I do ;)

FWIW, I tried negotiating and was told that they don't negotiate against offers from other schools. But I still don't see the harm in showing offers from other schools, even if they "don't negotiate" against them, the simple fact is that now they know where else I'm considering and at what price points I'm considering them.

Has anyone been able to view their Financial Aid info online yet?

I never received Emory's acceptance letter, or any physical mail from them - I only received their "Congratulation again..." e-mail, and every e-mail since regarding ASDs.

Is it worth calling Admissions office to ask whether I received a scholarship? Is there an infinitesimal chance that they haven't yet decided on a scholarship for my application, and calling would set a negative tone?

This is purely anecdotal, but I called a school (not Emory) that claimed via status checker to have sent me scholarship info in the mail that I had not received. I called and said that I was waiting on it, wanted to make sure it hadn't gotten lost in the mail, etc, and they said that they thought they had sent it but there must have been some sort of mixup and emailed me a scanned copy of the letter within an hour. So if it's been a couple of weeks, I don't think there's any harm in asking.

I would probably send a very polite email asking about it. There's no harm in asking since I'm assuming you wouldn't attend Emory without some kind of aid anyway.

Frustratingly enough, I actually sent them an e-mail in February asking exactly this - to send me a copy at a different address (in a way that side-stepped asking if I had received a scholarship as well.) Received back a two-word email; "No problem". Never received anything in the mail.

Unfortunately Emory doesn't have a status checker, and their Financial Aid info in the student portal is still pending (although they said they received my FAFSA info in February and I have no remaining "To-Dos" for them.)

my whole cycle is weird af

Everyone's talking about emailing Emory, but I would call them. I had a couple issues pop up early on in my cycle, called them, and things were cleared up that day or the next. I know most of us are millenials and hate calling people on our phones, but it is definitely worth it.

I didn't get to go to the ASW but I've done one of their mini-ASDs and I've lived in Atlanta the last few months, so I've visited a couple times. Here are my impressions from when I visited:

- The facilities are good, and definitely better than it seems like they'd be from the outside. The library in particular is very nice, and there are a lot of spaces for studying. The lecture halls are huge - the 1L classes are split into blocks, but the classrooms for 1L year (with the exception of the legal writing classes, which are smaller) definitely can hold at least 100 people. The building isn't a reason to go, but it's nice enough to not be a dissuading factor.

- They take their journals seriously, like a T30 school should. There was a lot of talk of getting involved, yada yada, the normal spiel. But it definitely seems like there's a premium placed on extra-curriculars. You can try out for journal, moot and trial ad but can only pick one. They also have the journal of Law and Religion, which is a national journal run as a joint project between Emory Law and Candler.

- They're pushing the narrative that they're a national school, and that the large GA numbers are in part self-selection (which I sort of buy, because Atlanta definitely sucks you in and it's a huge legal market that Emory is the BIG player in). The day I visited, they pulled a bunch of alums from all over the country into the room and made a big deal of how wide their alum base is. It was pretty compelling. The map they've been mailing out seems to confirm that while it's not a national school in the same sense as a T13 or even a UCLA or Georgetown, they have alums all over. Emory is a name people recognize.

- The biggest seller, though, was the crazy list of opportunities available for externing and interning. They made a big point of the fact that Atlanta has a ton of big firms, companies like Coca-Cola, a big public interest scene, and is the southeastern seat of a lot of federal agencies in addition to the capital of the state of Georgia. As someone who had schools in more rural/disconnected areas, it hit hard that Atlanta is pretty unrivaled other than DC/NY/Chicago in terms of the sheer amount of stuff you can get plugged into.

They're one of my two finalists and if I choose against them, it'll be because of regional preference (west coast) rather than school preference. They definitely sold themselves. You guys can PM me if you have more specific questions.

Everyone seemed really nice at ASD. There were so many "student volunteers" around that I didnt get much of a chance to talk to other future students, though. I liked the campus/law building and they seem to have plenty of resources for their students.
