I'm on the waitlist and didn't receive that e-mail...yet. My LSAT is pretty low for them but my GPA might be keeping me in the game. (163, 3.94....my numbers in my profile are a little fudged) I haven't sent in a LOCI but I definitely need to. Is e-mailing acceptable?

We have completed our review of responses after the tuition deposit deadline of April 15. At this point, we do not anticipate making any additional admission offers from the wait list until June when our second tuition deposit deadline passes.


Did anyone get WL, admitted today. It seems all on LSN and here are WL, reject.

I just got an update re: Wait List candidates. Just general info and stating that no more decisions will be made until after the second deposit in June. Also states that there is no more merit based aid, what to do with additional materials, etc. I don't really have plans to go there at this point and will likely withdraw...but nice to make it through the chop today!

Very interested to know this also... the first email it seemed like they were planning on making offers starting in late April but maybe they have enough enrolled already? It seems like a lot this year are double depositing.

Hey sorry I haven't been keeping up with this thread. I got the email saying that they weren't offering anymore spots until the next seat deposit in June...but it seems like there was a separate email that rejected some previously WL'ed people? Is anyone still realistically waiting for Emory or have the WL'ed people already committed elsewhere?

From LSN last year, I don't think they're making decisions any earlier or later this time around. To me it seems that they waitlisted initially en masse. The people WL were either URM with low GPA and LSAT or others with GPA above median. I also feel they blindly accepted and gave money to any 166+. That's what is apparent given the LSN graph. Thus, they received deposits from whomever bit and they'll just use the WL to tidy up the GPA. They told me that they are going to start "re"-reviewing those remaining on the waitlist throughout May and deciding on them in June; not different from the decision date off WL last year from LSN.

So their e-mail update to us WLers states:
"Additional materials: You may submit two additional documents—a continuing statement of interest AND one letter of recommendation. Both should be submitted electronically at admission@law.emory.edu. Do not send any other information."

I already sent an initial LOCI a week after I was put on the WL...am I really not allowed to send another one in???

Thnx

Did anyone on TLS recieve a WOODRUFF SCHOLARSHIP this year? There aren't any posted on LSN, so I'm just curious if Emory actually awarded any. I was told by an admissions officer that they were going to pick 12 finalists and issue 4 scholarships. I haven't heard of any finalists at all though. I think that it was a Woodruff Hoax this year .... :cry:

Do all the Wl'ed people think Emory is worth sticker? I'm just wondering if by some miracle I get off the waitlist, if I'm willing to pay.

Since I didn't want to pay to go to both Emory and UGA's ASWs I took my visit to Emory while I was in GA for UGA's ASW. That day they also had the woodruff finalist kids there. I just don't think any of them are TLSers.

do you mean the applicants or the current students?

the applicants- probably every one of them has gone through his/her academic career as the smartest person in the room, but every last one of them was a humble, approachable, normal human being. that is a rare combination in my opinion. each applicant was able to make a potentially (very) awkward and competitive situation fun. and there was such a diversity of goals and interests among us. i truly hope every one of them picked emory ultimately (but i'm sure not all of them will come here. all of them had acceptances with $ in hand from multiple t-14s).

the current students- i want to put to rest a rumor on TLS that emory students are bitter carpetbaggers who settled for their school while wishing they could have gotten in somewhere more highly ranked. not true, not at all. every student i met, every last one, seemed to me to be completely pleased with his/her choice and with the culture of the school. it's law school, so i'm sure there are a few bitter folks running around. but it wasn't my experience, and i can't wait to join them in the fall. it's fair to say emory probably put its best foot forward for us. but i visited the school twice and my impression was the same each time. if you're going to emory in the fall, get excited.

Thanks for the positive words. Despite my optimistic outlook on life, the tidal wave of negativity on TLS is often contagious. As a WL'd applicant who'd do pretty much anything to get in (and for the loads of other Emory admits/hopefuls), the positivity is certainly appreciated.

Glad you liked Emory. Just keep in mind that compared to other schools emory isn't well represented here on TLS, because most of us don't really care what the TLS community thinks. It's always better to ask someone who goes to the school then listen to others who have no idea what Emory is about other than citing employment stats and LSAT medians.
Look forward to seeing everyone here next fall.
