Emory Email about Admissions

<p>I'd figure it'd be EST; however, a lot of times, when Emory says they'll be posted in the morning, they'll actually be posted at midnight.</p>

<p>Just out of curiousity, do you think that Emory will take the trouble to update the server for only a few students? I figured that they would just go the route that Vanderbilt did and simply mail the early acceptances to minorities.</p>

<p>Also, I thought that minorities consisted of non-white individuals. I, being Asian, am technically a minority (Vandy sent me my acceptance early), so why did I not receive this email?</p>

<p>Is it because Asians are overrepresented at Emory and thus not considered as minorities?</p>

<p>I think it would be just for URMs (Under-represented Minorities) so that Emory can diversify racially a bit. Blacks and Hispanics are quite low percent wise - esp. comparing the percent of ATL residents vs Emory students that are black.</p>

<p>They're already posted!! I checked just in case & my decisions letter was available</p>

<p>Accepted :)</p>

<p>Are you a URM, brittnayy?</p>

<p>Yes, I'm hispanic; why?</p>


<p>ahh I see now
(I read the posts above me)</p>

<p>Hmm I guess it's a strategy to increase their URM yield but regardless, I'm happy to know earlier..</p>

<p>Good luck to those who have yet to find out :)</p>

<p>Hey! Thanks for the heads up! My D's admission was up too!</p>
