i agree with you, but i think he left W&L because he brought it up as high as it can get and emory has the potential to go higher then W&L, people are going to disagree with me but what's the point of having an opinion if no one disagrees with you  8)?

hey i was wondering how long it took for them to tell you that they received your deposit check. I mailed mine last monday (4/10) and I called them today (4/17) and they said that it isnt in the system yet. I live in florida so i thought it wouldnt take this long to get there and show up in the system. Any thoughts...i dont want them to give away my spot because my check might of got lost in the mail.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UMN vs ND Emory & UIUC

Of course I would encourage you to choose emory, but honestly go with your gut. Emory and ND are so close that there is no real deciding factor that will make the choice perfectly clear. As cheesy as this sounds when it came down to decision time (for me it was GW vs. Emory), i sat down and envisioned myself in law school next year and i looked around and realized i was sitting in an emory classroom (in my vision of course). after that I knew emory was the choice for me. They threw me a bucket of money which didnt hurt, but emory just felt right. I know that wasnt a concrete answer that you might have been hoping for, but when you are trying to decide between two schools that are so close i think the gut feeling is a reasonable indicator. ill probably get made fun of, but after my decision ive never looked back. 

In all fairness, I posted that before the jump (or return) to #26...

I'd say Emory is right where it should be...24-26...

I'd love to see us get down to the low 20s again, but I think the rankings game is too insane now.... schools in the top 25 will be VERY unwilling to give any ground....

i think we'll pass W&L at least in the next rankings...we stole their dean  8)

gotta agree with bender ... emory is def underrated

I didnt factor in parking and a washer and dryer because these are purchases that I will be making at the beginning of the semester with money i hopefully saved up from this summer (or gifts from the parents  8)). The price range i was quoted for a 2 bedroom was 1200-1277. I really dont care about being on the top floor and i am assuming this is what makes up the difference in the prices, so im going with 1200 per month. Then i estimated 200 - 300 per month for electricity, gas, water, cable, and internet, so that comes out to be 1400 - 1500 per month, which comes put to be 700 - 750 each per month. too high? too low?

I am currently in the same place. I looked at post briarcliff and clairmont and here's what I think... (the suspense is killing you isnít it?)

I really like post briarcliff. The apartments are new and quite large. They have a great location, a few minutes away from school and right behind a whole foods (which I hear is great, Iíve never shopped there). It is a managed property which I like because since I am new to atlanta I really dont want to worry about having some shady landlord. No undergrads live there and coming from UF (39k undergrad ... about the same as emorys tuition :D) that is a wonderful prospect. The only thing I dont like is that the apartments do not come with washers and dryers, which means you can rent them from post (how convenient for them) or buy them.

I was not too keen on clairmont. I have not lived in a dorm in over 3 years and I donít think im ready to move back. The rooms are small, the kitchen is small and it is in some obscure location (I know it is close to emory, but that seems to be the only thing that it is close to!). I know I am going to be spending A LOT time on campus (i.e. the library) and I would rather not live there as well.

They way I calculated it I would be spending approx 700-750 a month at post briarcliff for the big two bedroom (the one I want) and 704 at clairmont, I am willing to pay the difference.
