Where do most Emory student say they want to go? To clarify, what is the consensus geographical and concentration preference (if any)? Also, does Emory offer anything above full tuition scholarships (such as a stipend) and if so, what kind of numbers do you need to get it (or, selfishly I'll cut to the chase and say will my numbers make me competitive for it?)Emory places MOST students in Atlanta and the southeast. That said, students are interested in, and do go all over the country. You probably need to be in the top 25% to top 1/3 in the class to be guaranteed your choice of firms in any given market. Emory has a rep. in Atlanta of having a lot of kids go back north, so if you have a "northern" resume, Georgia firms will be wary of you. Also, a lot of smaller markets like to see some connection.
FWIW, I have a summer associate position lined up in New Jersey. A lot of my classmates are going to be working in NY or DC as well.
Emory has the Woodruff Fellowship, which covers tuition and fees plus a $3000 stipend per year.
Finally, could you justify going to Emory over a better school (let's say 11-16 range) if it saved you $40,000+?
If Emory were free, I'd take it, but in this Economy, I'd play it safe.
Would you classify Emory as a school, which is primarily interested in GPA/LSAT score?QuoteAren't they all?QuoteWhat LSAT score do you think I need to get into Emory with a GPA of 3.71 (LSAC GPA)? How low is too low?A 165 should seal the deal for you. That was the median this year, but your LSAC GPA is higher than the median of 3.55. That said, you might be able to go as low as 164 to be safe. I don't know if they will give you any special consideration as an international student, I would assume that there is some "diversity bonus in there, but I still wouldn't stray too far from the medians.
Emory, like most schools puts more weight on the LSAT than on GPA these days.I remembered you posting on here last year. I'm trying to figure out who you are!
Everyone knows who I am.
