So I'm a prospective Emory student. I live in NY, which would make me a good demographic for the school. I have a 4.0 weighted GPA, (3.8 unweighted), I'm in the top of my class but my test scores are nothing too great - I sent my 28 on the ACT (I know, not that great). My mother went to Emory for some time, so she knows a few people there as well.
I take pretty much all APs (5 APs total, plus one college course through Syracuse University). I get straight As except for the occasional B.
Anyway, I started this threat to try and gage not only my chances but whether or not I can get financial aid - or rather, whether Emory gives substantial financial aid to demographics and legacies.
THE MAIN QUESTION HERE IS: Does Emory give $ to demographics? Do they give money to legacies? Do they give money to students with high GPAs but relatively low test scores? ARE THEY GENEROUS, GENERALLY?
