Emory has went to the waitlist

<p>My counselor always emails me back when I ask questions and they don't have time to reply to updates but they do receive them my counselor always tells me she adds my stuff to my file, I email her once a week I usually say hello and tell her updates. I really love my counselor so try to make a good relationship</p>

<p>Sorry I forgot to say that I got no reply.
I guess they are too busy. We re so many in the WL...</p>

<p>Wait.. What?
Emoryguy, you sent her your new report card and all? It makes sense she replies. I'm on semesters, so I get mine later. No updates..</p>

<p>Wait how do you know who your counselor is?</p>

<p>I'm off the waitlist woohoo ! got off today.</p>

<p>Congrats diabsauce! How did they notify you? And when did u put that you wanted to know by?</p>

<p>Diablo please put where you live, when you put you would be notified by, what you did, and race please</p>

<p>why does where he live matter? I thought Emory decided based on the alphabet of your last name...</p>

<p>I sent an email stating my interest (during this past weekend) and 2 days later my admissions officer emailed me back telling me to call .</p>

<p>oh and @IBathlete i told them i wanted to know by Aug. 24th (first day of school for Emory)</p>

At what time of the day did you get the email?
( IB english paper 1 exam tomorrow. Good luck for the IB students! )</p>

<p>thanks...At about 3pm ...good luck with your exam.</p>

<p>Thank you,
congrats again~</p>

<p>congratrs diablosauce! you must be so happy! I hope I can get off the waitlist as well, that would be the best thing ever. :)</p>

<p>if you have yet to be notified, does that mean it's unlikely you've been accepted off the waitlist?</p>

<p>I also sent in a CD with a song that I wrote about why Emory should accept me. I know it won't help my chances, but it was fun recording it and what not. :] I asked them if they had recieved my materials, and they said, "Thank you for your message and the updated materials. While we cannot scan a copy of your CD into our online system, please know that we have made note of this item in addition to your emails."</p>

<p>What exactly does that mean?</p>

<p>Who do you all email to update the information?
I update through the waitlisting site.... Is that a bad way?</p>

<p>Hi everybody. I got off the waitlist 20 minutes ago, so I thought my information might be helpful. I am BEYOND excited. Emory is far and away my top choice!</p>

<p>If you're curious about my stats:</p>

<p>SAT: 2040 total (790 CR, 640 math, 710 writing)
GPA: 3.43 unweighted (not the best)
extracurrics: really extensive. tons of leadership (head lawyer, director, editor, vice-president) and I've shown a lot of commitment through the years. My ECs were probably my strongest point
essays: pretty good, I think. I was specific and passionate in my supplement
recs: good, I imagine
hook: I think being from upstate new york may have helped, but I'm not sure. My mother went to graduate school there</p>

<p>I didn't do anything particularly special to get off. I filled out the information online required to claim a spot, and when updating Emory on my accomplishments, I said I would go if admitted. I actually started an additional letter today on my reasons for loving the school, but I guess I didn't need it.</p>

<p>Good luck to everybody! I still don't know what made the accept me, but like I said before, it could be geographical. I know in 2009 2 people from my school were accepted off the waitlist.
Hope it helps</p>

<p>Also, </p>

<p>race: white
gender: female
how I was notified: they called me and followed up with an email.
They said only a select few are being taken off, but I hope all of you are able to get in! Good luck, once again</p>

<p>Congrats Sri! BTW they sent out an email about getting housing if you're accepted off of the wait list. Is it safe to say everyone got one of those?</p>
