I see you were waitlisted at UCLA, though. That's enviable!

This is annoying. I know I submitted my FASFA to Emory back in January but I keep getting messages on OPUS saying that my FASFA is missing. Is anyone else having this problem? I tried to call the Financial Aid office but I got a message saying they were closed for MLK...

I received an email indicating that I could check my "award package" online, but I only see Federal Stafford Loans. Given what I have received from other, more competitive schools, I am a bit perplexed that no merit scholarships are listed.

Or must I wait for a letter?

My scholarship amount is listed along with my stafford loan amounts.

Got my link to OPUS to check my financial aid package and there are only loans. I guess Emory isn't giving me a scholarship. Funny thing is the loans aren't even enough to cover the COA. Oh well, I guess Emory is out.

OPUS doesn't show GradPLUS loans, you apply for those seperately. You can get the form from the financial aid website.

Thanks for clearing that up. Still, Emory at full sticker is definitely a no go for me.

Is it coming down to Michigan and Vandy for you, Cardinal?

It's looking that way. I'm leaning slightly towards Michigan right now (shooting for BigLaw in CA or DC), but I'm gonna reserve judgement until visiting both (Mich later this week and Vandy next week). It's going to be hard turning down $$ from Vandy though. Decisions, decisions.

You didn't get $ at Emory? That seems weird. Are you even considering ND?

I'm not sure how long scholarship letters usually take to arrive, but I was admitted early last week and have yet to get one. I even got a handwritten note at the bottom about my personal statement and how I'd put together a really strong package. Go figure.

As for ND, I just got in yesterday but with them only offering $18k/yr and Vandy giving me $20k/yr, I'll prob withdraw soon from ND.

I really don't think there's a wrong answer, and yeah, a lot of it ought to come down to the visit.

Thanks, having multiple LSAT scores I didn't know what to expect coming into this cycle. But I'm definitely pretty happy with my cycle thus far. Good luck!

I haven't totally discounted it, considering my desire to be in Atlanta after graduation along with Emory's scholarship offer, but Vandy gave me only $3k less. I hear Vandy is equal to or greater than Emory in Atlanta, Vandy's biglaw placement is better in general (47% vs 24% NLJ250), and I'd sort of like a change of scenery, so I'm leaning towards Vandy. I'm definitely going to wait until after each school's ASD to decide, though.

I got in 2/22 and haven't received any scholarship letter yet. 167/3.7

I was accepted 2/12 and also haven't received scholarship information. 169/3.8

It's frustrating because I know they do a sort of YP scholarship policy, but I have been seriously considering Emory and am going to drive from NY to visit.

Ok, everyone. Make of this what you will, but I finally emailed the Emory Law admissions office today. Here's what I said:

"To Whom It May Concern:

I was admitted in February for the Fall 2010 entering JD class, and received my admittance packet. There was no mention of scholarship, however. Would you be able to tell me if I am still being considered for merit-based scholarship? This would be very helpful!

Thank you very much!"

and here is the reply I received:

"thanks for your email. All scholarships have been communicated to recipients. Congratulations on your acceptance to Emory Law.


--

More than Practice
admission@law.emory.edu"

Admittedly, this is not a very conclusive response, as I suppose a letter could be on its way to me, but it seems unlikely. It seems that most other admitted students have gotten scholarship info right along with their acceptance letter. I was accepted 2/17 (same day I went complete), received my packet on 2/22, and have heard nothing since. My numbers are 167/3.7 and I'm kind of surprised if I'm not being offered any merit aid. Thoughts?

Yeah a letter could be on its way, depending on when you were accepted. One way to look at it might be that it's comparatively late in the game, and Emory may have already given out the majority of its money. As we have seen with a decided lack of $96k awards this year, endowment money is way down. Good luck, and I agree that it's surprising that you didn't get anything.

So, I just got an email invitation to an admitted students reception, but have not received my acceptance packet. Is it safe to assume I'm in?

And what is this OPUS system I keep hearing about and how do I access it?

anyone know of any good places to find pictures of the inside of the law school? I swear I can't find pictures anywhere, but I'm really curious and I won't be able to make the admit day. Thanks :)
