<p>Thanks I would really appreciate it ya'll</p>

<p>GeorgiaBoi, your UW GPA is a smidgen below the Emory 50%, which is 3.74-3.99, with an average GPA of 3.84. It sounds like your academic rigor is strong. Your SATs are within the Emory 50%. Keep in mind that an elite college like Emory gets lots of applications with stats that are similar to yours. Since you mention that you have great essays, solid recommendations, impressive extracurriculars, and demonstrated interest, your application is probably going to be a close call. In my opinion, you are a match/low reach. Applying ED probably helps a bit. Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks, I really appreciate it.</p>

<p>If I were not to apply ED, does anyone know how much would that hurt my chances?</p>

<p>Probably not much, as you have shown demonstrated interest either way.</p>

<p>would anyone mind reading one of my essays and giving feedback? I wouldn't mind returning the favor.</p>

<p>Sure, PM it to me.</p>

<p>I think that you are definitely in the running! A lot of it depends on the specifics of you LoR, ECs, and essays - something that we cannot really determine at this point. </p>

<p>I'd be happy to read your essays...I've critiqued several other essays, including one or two other Emory-specific ones.</p>
