Thought I'd get this thread started.. Any possible future classmates around??
I know they have a second interview weekend for finalists for the merit-based Woodruff fellowships, but I don't think the notifications come out until the Spring. I'm not sure about any other scholarships they may have.anyone gotten any scholarship offers yet? Anyone know when they send them out?
Yeah, unfortunately we need to fill both out. I had to do the same thing in college, each year. It makes absolutely no sense that we have to pay to get considered for financial aid!Hi guys - I am now working on the financial aid stuff for schools and so I looked back at the email Emory sent out earlier about this and it mentions that we have to fill out BOTH, the fafsa as well this PROFILE thing..I went to the website and it charges $25 just to fill it out for one school! What the hell? Is this really required?
I think they're only having a second look for underrepresented minorities in medicine, which already happened, due to changes in the economy. Housing weekend is still on though...I think.Haven't heard anything about it either? Seems a little late notice for end of April..
When I interviewed in January I heard definitely no second look weekend. Housing weekend seems to be June 5-6 I think, according to the acceptance packet.I think they're only having a second look for underrepresented minorities in medicine, which already happened, due to changes in the economy.

Mine showed up last night.. go to Campus Finances--> Financial Aid--> Then click on "2010" on the left side.Do any of you have your financial aid information on the OPUS website already? I submitted my stuff a while ago and I still have nothing..
Did you follow the instructions to synchronize your password? From the document they sent out:Btw, anyone else tried accessing LearnLink yet? I have my Emory ID and can log into everything else (OPUS, blackboard, etc...) but LearnLink keeps saying my userid or pw is wrong
Yeah, I've tried to sync my password 5 times now, still no luck. The server says fc.learnlink.emory.edu. Thanks for the tips, I'll check out the link, if it still doesn't work, I might call them tomorrow. I just wanted to make sure other people could access it and it wasn't just that they haven't activated our accounts yetDid you follow the instructions to synchronize your password? From the document they sent out:
.1. Go to https://password.service.emory.edu/ .
.2. Type in your NetID (this is your Emory network ID) and current password. .
.DO NOT TYPE IN A NEW PASSWORD..
.3. Click on the "Change/Maintain Password" button. .
.4. Wait about 10 minutes for all systems to re-set, then try your LearnLink login again. .
I still had problems after that (my password worked for the online login, but not the downloaded version), so you may be having the same issue I did. Check the server on the FirstClass Login box. It should say "Server: fc.learnlink.emory.edu" If it doesn't, you have to click on "advanced" and type it into the address box.
There's also more help info here (including more detailed instructions for the server issue): http://www.learnlink.emory.edu/guides/
