Valuable advice from an ADMISSIONS COUNSELOR.

<p>This was an e-mail conversation between my regional admissions counselor and me before I was accepted into Emory. Everyone should remember this when applying and posting their chance threads.</p>

<p>I will be taking the ACT in April and the scores will be back in mid-April, enough time to get the scores sent to Emory.</p>

<p>If I get rejected (AGAIN, IN THE NAME OF JESUS I WILL BE ACCEPTED.), can I appeal my rejection? For example: If I am rejected, I send new materials (higher test scores from April and new essays), can my rejection become an acceptance to prove that I am worthy of attending Emory?</p>

<p>Again, we will not use test scores submitted in April. The latest scores we will use are from January 2009. In terms of an appeal, if you are denied admission, every student has the option to appeal. In the last ten years, only one appeal has resulted in an change in our decision. The greatest amount of weight is given to your class selection and grades; new essays will not outweigh the four years of coursework you have completed.</p>

<p>Please let me know if you have any other questions. </p>

<p>Take care,</p>

<p>I met her during the Essence of Emory weekend in April. She remembered my application and was able to recognize me when I told her that I was from Memphis, TN. She said that it was my essay and school that I attended that made her remember me.</p>

<p>I hope that this bit of info helps all you 2014 hopefuls and transfers. Good luck.</p>
