My advice is to  apply everywhere you want to go. Have a few "safety" schools. You never know. Good luck!
Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives. No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.--Chuck Swindoll

Georgia Schools? Any chance...
« Reply #231 on: October 27, 2005, 07:35:55 PM »
I have a 154, a 3.4 UGPA and a 3.7 GGPA.

I HAVE to stay in Atlanta because my husband has residency there for another 4 years (getting married in December!).  Of course, I'm Black.  But with a 154.. I don't know if that'll help. 

The only two schools there are Emory and Georgia State.  Do I have any chance at either of them?  Should I even bother applying? 

Any advice or personal experience would be appreciated.

Emory will be a stretch, but not out of the question.  GSU is probably a more realistic option.  Just make sure that your PS is on point and you should have no trouble getting into at least one of those.  Good luck!

I predict that you will get into both, likely with money.

Go ahead and apply, you never know. 

I would say Emory is a major stretch though.

I don't know about GSU, but there is no hope for money at Emory.

What are Emory's numbers this year?  I don't have my handy U.S. News with me.  But considering the fact that someone with a 3.0/160+ can get into the mid-to-upper T14, I don't consider it a stretch of the imagination to say that someone with a 154 can get into a school traditionally ranked in the mid-to-lower twenties, and possibly with money.

Getting in is one thing, scholarship is another beast entirely.  The OP should talk to desi desi desi, who is a minority Emory 2L.

Judging by the moniker, I assume "desi desi desi" is not black.  You cannot compare a black person with someone from the Indian subcontinent.  I think the OP might be a very desirable candidate for Emory.  Perhaps not Woodruff material, but desireable nonetheless.
