<h1>Type - Public, crappy (I don't think any one has EVER applied to Emory)</h1>

<p>So what do you think my chances are? Thanks for taking a look!</p>

<p>i think you have a great shot. you have worked really hard and you have great stats and ecs. i don't think you'll have to worry too much but who knows? i guess you'll find out soon. good luck</p>

<p>Thanks for the vote of confidence ;^D I've been knocked down a few pegs within the last week or so after being waitlisted at 4/9 of the colleges I've applied to. I just hope I get a nice fat acceptance letter from Emory! </p>

<p>Anybody else have some more thoughts?</p>

<p>Your SATs are a quite a bit above the the average and your GPA and rank are incredddibley impressive! I think you have a pretty darn good shot, depending also upon your recommendations and essays (hopefully you showed a lot of interest). Goood Luck! Hopefully you'll be joining me in the fall for the Class of '10!</p>

<p>O and what schools were you waitlisted at? That might give us some sort of an idea. But certainly don't share if you don't feel comfortable!</p>

<p>No, it's no problem at all! I really probably aimed a bit too high with most of these, but I thought I'd might as well give them a shot. Here they are:</p>

<p>Carleton
Cornell (CAS)
Dartmouth
Swarthmore</p>

<p>Any other thoughts? Last bump</p>

<p>I'm really worried. The college thing has been bittersweet so far, I've been accepted to American, BU (GSP), Emerson, and Fordham-Lincoln Center, and I have no real idea where I want to go. I still need to hear back from GWU (TODAY AT 5!?), University of Rochester (They waitlisted me because they lost my SAT scores??), and EMORY!</p>

<p>WHen do decisions come out?</p>

<p>QuizQuick: They release decisions via snail mail on April 1st, so expect notification towards the middle of next week.</p>

<p>Hi I am from Washington State and I saw you did udoc! I did udoc too!! It's a great program! What year did you do it and was it at the UW??</p>
