Emory YPs $ like NO ONE else I've seen- they are ridiculous. It was the same pattern last year, too, if you check LSN. I guess they just assume you aren't going to come if you have better offers, but I find it a little insulting. I don't see what the harm is in TRYING to get people to come- obviously you don't lose anything if they decline.
I sent in my withdrawal the day after I got my financial aid offer, which made me feel a little better. I thanked them for their financial aid offer...albeit slightly sarcastically (not that they would get that impression from my note though, as I tried not to be obviously snarky about it).
Don't worry Lucas, I'm sure you'll get some serious $ from Vandy, and nashvegas is just as exciting as the ATL, right?
