    If you get scholars, it's a no brainer. You should come here and pick up a double major in math and NBB. Start at Math 211 and work your way up. Use scholars to take the best math professors and base your classes on which professors are teaching when. Take NBB and a couple Chem courses too.

    If I could do Emory over, I'd have done NBB and Math. And gone for the partial scholarship from being a Scholar semifinalist.

    As for your Scholar chances, I see you getting an interview. Whether you get it depends on how you articulate yourself then. In my opinion, I think you need to stress the piano playing you do. Not what you do as much as show a genuine interest in why you do it.

    If you're from Mississippi and apply RD, you have a better shot Imo. But that's a guess.

    I don't think it's demonstrated interest. I think demonstrated interest, while good in theory, isn't good in application. Everyone fakes it.

    The only demonstrated interest for a school of this caliber is ED

    Thanks for the advice. I've definitely been thinking about the "why" with piano as well.

    After all this talk, I can't wait to visit in April! I'm looking forward to checking out Wonderful Wednesday :)
