For anyone who checked their online portal and received an acceptance earlier this week, have you received (and/or checked that USPS informed delivery) your acceptance letter in the mail? Just curious

Accepted. Found out via the portal on Tuesday, no email. Also checked USPS informed delivery and there is nothing in the mail for me as of yet. I also interviewed on the last day
So what you're saying is.... there's hope :laugh: Thanks for that info! I do find it odd that the admissions office repeatedly said applicants would find out about acceptances through the mail first and the portal later... Nevertheless, they have a system so I'll stick to it, no news is good news at this point. And congrats on your acceptance!!!

When do we find out whether we've been waitlisted? Also haven't seen any portal changes or any new mail.
I don't think anyone knows for sure, but if I had to guess, I'd say by the end of the week

Just got an email from Emory about applying for financial aid. I know it's a super longshot at this point, but does anyone know what this means? Pretty sure everyone they planned on accepting has been notified already, but maybe this is a sign of a future waitlisting... idk maybe they just send this to everyone

If you added Emory to your FAFSA then you’ll probably get this email if not once, multiple times.

Just got the alternate email. Thought we were going to get a phone call but I imagine this is because of the COVID-19 outbreak. On the bright side, we'll have time to write.

I think you'll get a phone call from them only if you are pulled off the alternate list for an acceptance!

Alternate email! Anyone know the general chances of acceptance or how many people end up get taken off the alternate list? Would love to know if I can get my hopes up a little.

Wondering the same thing...did anyone get flat out rejected post-interview or does everyone who interviews and isn’t accepted initially get put on alternate list?

Pretty sure it goes to everyone unfortunately :( at least that’s what it was from the sdn thread last year.

Alternate list! Interviewed in January.

I wonder if an applicant is less likely to get pulled off the waitlist if they check "need-based aid and student loans" versus the other two options.
Emory would be pulling money out of their pocket for said individual to matriculate (if qualified for need-based aid) instead of another applicant using only loans or none at all.

Being curious/neurotic since I am going to be honest with my financial aid answer regardless- Thoughts?

Yes, Emory doesn't really "reject" anyone who has interviewed, it's the alternate list. People are indeed pulled off the list, I don't believe it's too many, but I have at least one friend who was an alternate in my class.

Alternate. II 1/27. The space for the essay is 1000 words max. Do y'all think it's necessary to take up the whole space or just enough to answer the question? I always feel iffy about these things because you don't want them to be like "bruh wtf" and sigh when they have to read the whole thing but you also don't wanna leave things TOO small...

Mine was 850 ish words mostly made up of secondary responses I wrote after I completed the Emory secondary.

has anyone been notified about receiving the Woodruff scholarship?
According to my notes from interview day, decisions should come out today! The factsheet says they will notify winners, alternates, and rejections but I'm not sure if that only applies to the shortlisted candidates or if they will send us all a note to confirm
