I know the past two years they gave out tons of money, last year having a 166 was almost a golden ticket to a 96,000 scholly. Do you think they will give out that same kind of money this year? Do you think the threshold for that money will be raised?

I've asked this before, but Emory is my basically my first choice and I have numbers right in last years "sweetspot" so this is a question that crosses my mind about 57 times a day.


Amen. I am wondering that as well. Hoping that my 166 and high GPA will get me one of those golden tickets!

Sure sounds good to me! A cursory glance at last year's LSN suggests that they'd started doling out decisions by this time last year, so hopefully we won't have to wait too long to find out.


Agreed - I wonder if they do e-mails or snail mail?


I have a 168, and was offered $81,000. Not sure if this helps!

From the way this thread has been going, it seems that those who got in after the mass scholarship mailing aren't getting anything. I plan to write them a letter, but they have a hard policy of not negotiating under any circumstances, so I don't expect anything to come of it.

I heard the same thing--that they don't negotiate. It's possible, I suppose, that more money could become available when students begin to turn down offers, so there might be hope. I know that I had a professor recommend me for Woodruff, so I think that may have made a difference with the scholarship offer!

my guess is that more money won't become available unless way more people than they expect turn down their offer of attendance & they get desperate to attract candidates, because schools give out much more than they have available in the first place knowing that many won't enroll. perhaps if their numbers were really off, as i know this cycle has been a bit different than most, a school may do a little more enticing through money. i'd bet this won't be the case though.

I would say it depends... Is she paying or helping to pay for your law school? If yes, then I'd do whatever the hell I had to to keep her from changing her mind! :lol:

My dad is coming with me. Buttttt, he is paying for the visit, we're coming from TX, and this is the only time I'll be able to visit until summer to look for apartments so it's not really a choice for me. We can be "uncool" together I guess, but I think my dad is pretty fun. I'm confident there will be plenty of parents there, and spouses for that matter. Just make sure she doesn't look the part of a mom haha I don't think there was anything more annoying than the herds of moms with their clipboards and tucked in t-shirts touring my UG with their kids.

Kinda off topic, but people ask about schools for their kids all the time, and this is my kid so bear with me.

Any horse people coming to ASW or even Emory? Would you be interested in comparing nearby stables? I will be spending more time finding a barn than an apartment so if I find a great one I'd be willing to help out someone who doesn't have the time to do this.


(Leaving my horse behind is not an option!!)

Well actually... I am moving from Houston with my fiancee + our horse Olive. Fiancee rides English. (Not sure if that matters to you, figured you would assume Western from Texas) As far as stables go, I can't help there. We will be keeping Olive with her parents. My fiancee will likely know A LOT more about the stable situation than I do. I will ask her after work and get back to you. She will probably want to know your riding type, if you are looking for specific trainers, etc. She grew up just outside of Atlanta, so hopefully she can help out.

I don't suppose you rode in college?

Deciding between BC and Emory, but my horse is almost definitely coming with me and I am coming to ASW. Im trying to figure out some options for first year though so I wouldn't have to pay mountains of $$$ for board when I dont think I'll be able to ride all that much......

Nice!! I like the horses people, keep it coming!! I ride the craziest of crazies, straight egyptian arabs in hunter pleasure/ sport horse/ jumping. I will be sure to post more on barns after I go look next week. Another thing I would suggest doing for other breed association people like myself is grabbing a prizelist from a high rated show- even if you don't show, there are always the most reputable barns advertising in there, and most show barns offer reasonable prices for pasture board or basic full care.

definitely let me know if you find anything decent for a good price. I've got a crazy tb mare (hunter), sweet as can be though, but I dont have the time to visit barns while I'm there.

These apartments are pretty good. They are around 2 miles out from campus and the classmates who live there that I know of have had positive experiences.

Is it safe to assume that if you didn't get a scholarship offer by now, and if none is listed on your fin aid offer, you're not getting one at this point -- that is, Grad PLUS all the way, baby?

Captain Obvious here is guessing true, but does any have any insight to the contrary?

Emory at sticker would be a tough sell.

edit: reviewing this thread, I would seem to have my answer

For me, it isn't ... not when I can go to Notre Dame for about 1/2 price. That's why I want to be sure that I'm not missing out on something before I withdraw from Emory.
