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