I'm sorry, and you pretty accurately described how I feel as well. There's still 1 more day of acceptances, so there's still hope! It's not over until it's over. I'm trying to be as patient as I can with all of this (which admittedly is difficult lol). Wishing the best for you and all other applicants.
I relate to all of this, I Interviewed in October :/

Looking through last years thread, emory asked for an essay on why emory and I want to say it was really long like 1000 words or something crazy. It looked like a lot of people weren’t too happy especially because they don’t pull a lot of people from their waitlist historically. But hey if we have to do it this year I’m 100% willing to write it even if there’s a small chance haha

Yeah I actually ended up writing it last year and am here now so there's hope friends. Emory was the first secondary I returned so my responses got better and better with each successive secondary and the waitlist essay really wasn't tough to write since I had more to draw from. Was waitlisted until the beginning of May then accepted.

Are we supposed to pay a deposit at some point...? I confirmed my seat and sent in CSS/FAFSA but I haven't heard from Emory since the letter came.

Have interviews ended yet? If no, what sort of precedent in previous cycles?

I don't think so. Just gotta sit back and wait until more financial aid info comes out for now.

Gotcha. Just those intrusive thoughts we all have about an acceptance being rescinded because a deposit email went to the spam folder, or getting a speeding ticket or whatever haha

Current student here. Just to confirm some of the recent questions/responses I see: Yes, tomorrow (2/28) is the last interview day of the cycle. No, no admissions deposit should be required. If there's any other questions, will do my best to answer.

Do you happen to know the final decision day for acceptances and the WL/R post interview?

I don't have exact dates, but based on the usual pattern (barring any significant changes this year) I'd expect everyone to be notified two weeks after tomorrow (sometime the week of March 9th). If you're accepted, it should update on the portal. WL notifications will then go out via email to *everyone* who was not accepted, likely the following day. You can either accept your position as an alternate and respond to the essay question, or decline. Hope that helps!

Do we know how the group interview is rated? Do all 3 interviewers give you a score or is each interviewer matched to one of us?
From my interview, it seemed like all 3 interviewers gave us a score because all of them were taking notes when each interviewee answered a question

Right that’s true. Do they evaluate our entire files? Since it was closed file initially...
The Dean mentioned they only had our personal statement during the interview, but they evaluated/skimmed our files immediately after the group interviews for any discrepancies. I think they'll dig deeper into our files during their committee meetings while making final decisions!

What is the difference between the Revisited Event (March 19-20) and the Second Look Event (April 24)?

I believe that Revisited is specifically through the office of multicultural affairs for URM students, whereas Second Look is open to anyone still making their decision.

Just got an email from Certiphi that “another school” requested my background check but didn’t specify which. Trying not to get my hopes up but I can’t help but think maybe...

So if we didn’t get that notice, we are more likely R/WL?
That is definitely not necessarily true since we don’t know if that even applies to emory. They didn’t specify at all what school it was for

Did they announce the 10 finalists for the full ride scholarship?
It's hard to say- they said they would start contacting finalists on the 9th, but since it's such a tiny pool, we can't tell whether they've already done it and no one on SDN was chosen, or if they're not done choosing people yet.
