I'm shocked at how few acceptances Emory has sent out so far. It's as if they're a month or two behind other schools.

It was the new apartment complexes they put up for grad students only and they had a shuttle during visiting day from the law school to the complex. Don't be fooled. Not even halfway through the lease and they have a terminator come every week because of insect problems, several pipes were installed with holes in them causing mold, and yesterday a water pipe broke causing 1000 gallons of water to flood the 4th and 3rd floor. Not even half way through the lease and it is practically falling apart. If you are doing an apartment complex, do Post.



Sorry this is so far after the initial post, but when i was in town for a visit I read in Emory's student paper about all the problems the grad housing was experiencing. Do you have any info on that apartment complex you mentioned and any others relatively close to campus you might suggest? I really like Emory but have no idea where to look.


I live in campus crossings now and cannot wait to get out of my lease. No cable included, cheap furniture (we have already broken out chandelier, couch and a chair), the walls are thin (i can hear my neighbor playing music all the time), ants infested my apartment and of course the water pipe bursting, which thankfully did not damage my apt but the construction workers all around the building and repairs are terrible.

Better places to live: Post Briarcliff, the gables, or find a house to rent, there are plenty of them near campus.

Also keep in mind that NO 1L's get parking passes at the parking garage next to the law school. So keep transportation in mind when choosing a place to live. (you can park at the hospital garage next door to the law school, but its $12 a day)


Highland Lake and Clairmont Reserve are both right across (walking distance) from Clairmont Campus where you can catch a shuttle that takes you right to the law school. There's a ton of other cheap housing options right around the school, both in complexes and houses.

If you have to walk from either of those to Clairmont, then take the shuttle, be prepared for a 30+ minute commute at peak hours, door to door. I recommend buying a bike if you plan to live there, as you could bike from Clairmont reserve in about 15 mins or less.

Emory U. apartment tiers (this list is by no means exhaustive)

-Gables Montclair (best quality apts. Close to law school)
-Gables Rock Springs/Highland Square (nice, close to Law School)
-Clairmont Reserve (nice, close to Clairmont)
-Highland Lake (good, close enough to Clairmont)

I haven't been to the Emory Campus Crossings or whatever, but with all the crap I've been hearing about it, I would not want to live there.

edit: Car or bike is the fastest way to get around. Though there is no shuttle near either Gables or Highland Square, the proximity of these makes these better choices IMO. In a pinch, you could walk from Highland Square or Gables Montclair to the law school.

Here's where the admissions rep answers the question.

Another 1/19 Complete that is anxiously awaiting Emory. It is a top choice of mine and I am a little nervous about considering I took the LSAT more than once and showed significant improvement so I don't know if they will take my highest score or average (I have heard they do both).

Thanks. Congrats on the acceptance, hopefully I get good news soon as well.

Although you do have an edge on me in terms of numbers.

I went to the LSAC forum in Atlanta and spoke with one of the associate deans and he assured me that they take the highest score.

Fwiw- Looking at everyone's numbers, this looks like a total accept batch if complete 1/19 actually means mailed 1/29.
