I've been complete since Nov, with no updates since then.


No news, just a bunch of us getting impatient after having gone complete less than a month ago :) We should probably shut up and sit down if you've been waiting since Nov.

ohhh haha, thanks.

I thought maybe a second email had gone out or something and I missed the boat. Good luck!

Still waiting as well...

I'm in at UGA with $$$, waiting on Emory and Vanderbilt still. If Emory gives me any $ they could be a huge contender. C'MON EMORY!

Has anybody here sent Emory any supplemental materials, such as a LOCI or additional LoR? I know that they say in their 'complete' e-mail that they discourage any additional documents, but is this a hard and fast rule?

Thanks in advance.

visited recently. they said that they are behind due to the paperless switch, but a wave should happen in a week or so and should continue for a few weeks, and scholly offers will come with the acceptance letters. people already admitted will get scholly offers soon too.

This seems to conflict with the Emory admissions staffer who's taking questions over in the Discuss Your Law School forum. He said:

Emory_Rob wrote:We expect most or all admission offices will be paperless in the next few years, but we are one of the first. With it being the first year, we are taking extra time to make sure that nothing gets lost along the way, so that does take extra time as well. However, the good news is that we are weeks ahead of where we were at this time last year.


Ahhhh what does it all mean?!

i'm guessing they were fibbing because only a few people have been accepted so far this year when waves of acceptances had already gone out at this time last year.

the school was really nice - they had a beautiful library, classrooms, sitting areas, etc. i sat in on a property class - the prof was pretty good, he used a mix of socratic method & hand raising. i asked a few students how they thought he ranked in the spectrum of professors in their opinions and got very different answers. the tour guide mentioned that the clinics and journals had offices in a separate building (if i recall correctly). the ls is located a few buildings down from the hospital & visitor parking garage. leaving the law school and wandering the campus, it seemed pretty sheltered from the city even though it's downtown. the fitness center was a 12ish minute walk from the ls in high heels. i wasn't super impressed with the facility - it's big & clean, had an indoor track, climbing wall, racquetball courts, etc like most schools, but it didn't really feel like a 'community' that motivates you to come back. it is free for all students though. the university center housed the bookstore, eateries and some other things (i didn't wander around it too much). it was nice & pretty busy. it is located between the ls & fitness center, closer to the latter. i was told that there were several apartment complexes that run free buses to the campus, including their newest that was called the campus apartments at briarcliff that cost $550 per person for a 3 br furnished. but a lot of students live in midtown, the highlands, downtown, and some other areas. they talked about field placement programs (externships) that students become eligible for in the fall of their 2L year that includes companies like coca-cola & delta and also the court systems. i know a lot of this is proly in the prospectus, but i'm just writing all that stood out to me... hth!

you're welcome! :D

one more thing - they said that apps are about what they were last year at the same time, but the deadline is 1 mar so things could change. they expect a record year, but they didn't make it sound like apps were up a significant amount over ly.

I'm in a similar situation.
UGA, Wake and especially W&L offered up money but if Emory or Vandy came through I'd really have a tough decision.

Decent shot with Emory, more of a stretch with Vandy.

Yay...I think I'm going to start hanging out with my mailbox even more now. I really hope the scholarships are similar to those offered last year.

*crosses fingers*

Also, does anyone know if we have to submit anything other than the FAFSA to Emory?

So, who on this thread is leaning toward Emory right now? And where else are you considering? For me, if the $$$ offer is decent at all, I'll be there in the fall.

I have yet to visit, but if they offer me a good scholarship it will definitely be a top contender. Location is going to play a role in my decision, and I like the south.
