Well, I think I do. But having been waitlisted at American yesterday, they can't be too great, can they?

There was a hand-written note on my acceptance letter about my experience in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, where I volunteered for a year. That being my most significant soft factor, aside from my LORs, I guess it contributed to their decision. Definitely the first time I've felt like a school has looked at anything other than my GPA and LSAT. I sent in my application around February 10th.

This was yield protection. American is notorious for it. Its probably more of an indication that you're a solid candidate than anything else.

Got in yesterday 3.4/168 with 12 years work experience. Applied in mid-October. I am sitting on a full tuition scholarship from Alabama, and a partial scholarship from UGA. No scholarship info from Emory, but I was a Woodruff nominee. I am not holding my breath for a Woodruff Fellowship, but has anyone heard anything from the Woodruff selection committee?

When did all of you guys apply? I applied at the beginning of January, I still haven't heard anything other than "We received your application". Numbers: 3.34/170

This gives me hope in case my Feb score isn't up to par... You work in Atlanta at a firm?

About how many Woodruff Nominees do you think there are, and when do they let them know?

I'll be doing that this weekend. Totally didn't realize I even needed to until after I looked back over the acceptance packet. Their finaid website is extremely unhelpful, so I'm glad I saw that or I never would have filled the thing out. Oopsers!


Didn't know I had to fill this out. Sounds like a pain in the ass.


I talked to the Emory financial aid office yesterday, and they said that I didn't have to submit anything aside from the FAFSA. Weird...I guess I need to call again.

Oh, and congrats to those who recently heard!

Yeah I got that too. Definitely cool. Wish the letter came with money, but still cool.

edit: I'm still waiting. Congrats on the cash, bonnieblue.

Has anyone registered for Visiting Day? From the acceptance material it looks like you just e-mail admissions and say you're coming. Am I missing something?

In today! So exciting to get a big packet in the mail!

Are all scholarship offers included with the acceptance packet, or do some come later? No $$ would be disappointing, particularly given how generous they seem with most students. :|

People with higher scores seem to be hearing relatively soon. I don't know if this is you or not, but good luck.

People with my numbers are starting to get accepted, so I'm going to throw out a prediction. I'll get an acceptance with $54k total award either today or tomorrow. 8)

Congrats to those who have recently gotten in. I'm looking forward to a decision after 4 months of waiting.
