Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Dinged @ Vandy
« on: February 25, 2006, 08:04:31 PM »
Dont feel bad, i applied late nov and went complete early dec and they still havent got back to me. At this point i am expecting either a rejection or be put on the waitlist, i have no idea what they are waiting for, i think i have a chance (165/3.6 URM engineering) but they are killing me with this wait. I want to practice in the SE, so I have Emory, which is an amazing place to go if you want to stay in the SE. Best of luck to all of you!

I think American has a tough gig. It has to compete with the mega law powerhouse GULC and the powerhouse of GW for DC jobs.

My file went complete December 9 at BC and December 12 at vandy, it is now Feb. 23, almost 2.5 months later and I havenít heard a word from either. I do not know if this is a good or bad thing or if these schools are just slow, but the waiting isnít fun. What are your thoughts?

I have to agree with brianD. It seems as though most of the people on this discussion board are in love with UGA and have a bitter taste in their mouths for Emory.

First, UGA is not better then Emory if you want to practice law in the southeast. We all know if you want to practice law in the northeast Emory is your best bet (which should automatically make it a better choice then UGA). However, I am from Florida and have done plenty of research (i.e. speak with attorneys, law professors, and law students) and have never heard that UGA has any kind of pull or better reputation then Emory in FLA, as a matter of fact I have heard the opposite. So in FLA (which is in the southeast) Emory has the advantage over UGA.

Second, most of us are concerned about job prospects. So I went to to compare the two schools, Emory got an 87 career rating and UGA got a 78. Princeton Review seems to think Emory grads have better career prospects then UGA grads, unlike most of the people on this site.

Third, for all of us out of state applicants, the price difference between the two is not that great and the difference in job prospects makes this small difference even less important. However, if I was a GA resident I could see the lure of UGA and donít blame those who may choose it over Emory. (Hell I havenít got my scholarship offer from Emory yet so I donít know where I stand financially).

I am showing Emory love because it's a great school. I might be there next year, I might not. I just had to stop the Emory bashing and the uber UGA praising, because it was getting a bit ridiculous.

(Who wants to be a bulldog anyways? GO GATORS!) had to throw that in ;-)

Right now Emory is my number one choice. I want to do BIGLAW, but not in the Northeast, I like the southeast and think Emory will give me the most opportunities there. UGA might help you in georgia, but outside of Georgia you are SOL and this is where Emory has the distinct advantage. Atlanta is a great city and traffic is #732 on my list of factors in choosing a law school. Atlanta might have a little more crime than other cities, but the fact that it is the hub for many fortune 500 companies in the southeast gives it excellent employment opportunities, which is #1 on my list seeing that i am most likely going to go into some serious debt.
