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

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!
