    It's official - Emory is finally done for the season and is sending out rejections. I got a rejection email from them today :oops: and despite my $90, they couldn't even humor me with a regular letter :mad: Oh well....life goes on I guess. :(

    I, too, got the email. I replied asking for a paper copy of the rejection. I further stated that if they required any additional funds beyond the $90 that I had already sent in order to cover the cost of mailing, to please let me know and I could forward them the postage.

    I haven't received a reply yet. :)

    The e-mail wasn't exactly classy, but at least they cut us loose early. I'll take closure over endless speculation anyday.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Atlanta isn't all that great of a place. Dirty, too much traffic, no public transportation, and a large race and class divide. Everyone loves Michael Vick and he just isn't that good.

    Burning bridges are we? Be careful what you put down on paper. It can come back to bite you in the ass later in life. My advice is always to write emails like that, keep them in your draft box, and send it in 3 days if you still feel the same way.

    Wow, I'm surprised I actually got a response. This is what she said:

    The Admissions Office decided a few years ago to use electronic means of communication whenever possible - to save trees, funds, and administrative time. Emory University as a whole is very environmentally conscious, as is the Emory School of Medicine.

    We appreciate your interest in Emory and hope you will understand our decision to not send hard-copy correspondence.

    Sincerely,
    Erica

    --------

    Question: I wonder if their environmentally conscious actions involve sending out e-diplomas, too? :)

    Ha, if any office needs to save "administrative time," it's certainly Emory Admissions. Two months just to deposit a check?!

    indeed, environmentally-conscious with their polluted coke money and honors medical students who knowingly spread hiv (google 'gary wayne carriker').
