    I feel the exact same way. I got rejected/waitlisted at all my schools and have similar stats. I think you have a great shot though, but then again I was very very wrong yesterday... (apparently being an Intel Semifinalist doesn't mean anything these days....) By the way, are you Asian and how much interest have you shown?

    Emory cares a lot if you visit and show interest. If you did those things it seems like you have the stats to get in.
