Emory Scholars

I have a few questions about the scholars program.
So, where exactly is the Emory Scholars specific essay? I indicated that I would like to apply for the Scholars program in the Common App, but no additional essay shows up.

Also, how competitive is the Scholars program, and how many people get the full tuition, and how many get partial, and how much is "partial tuition"? In addition, will the Scholars tuition add up with financial aid, or will you get less need aid if you get Emory Scholars.

Lastly, if you get a scholarship related to, say, research from Emory, and then you wished to go to Gouizeta, will you continue to receive the scholarship?

Thank you!

    Bump! I'd really appreciate if anyone could answer any of these questions.

    Last year there were 1 or 2 additional essays. You could apply for either Emory Scholars or Goizueta Scolars. Very, very few kids get picked as a finalist. It is extremely competitive.Emory flies them down for 4 days but most don't get the full ride. They get partial...but still very generous.

    Were the additional essays supposed to be turned in with the Common App by the Nov. 15th deadline?

    It's very competitive. I know someone who got a full scholarship to the University of Maryland and did not get accepted as an Emory scholar. And the University of Maryland is a hard to school to get into because there are a lot of great high schools in Maryland.

    Apparently they got rid of the additional essays for Emory Scholars this year.

    I have a family member who received a partial BK from UMD-CP and a partial Emory Scholar award. You just never know sometimes.

    @twogirls‌ Isn't CP the honors college though.....or is that the main one? I don't remember, but I would expect CP to correlate with Emory some either way. I would call the Emory Scholars thing competitive and "political"(yield potential aware). If they feel as if you won't yield, they probably won't even interview.

    It is my understanding that CP is College Park and there is an honors program with CP.

    Good to know about Emory. Works for us.
