TTTT, 61/170, 3.11.
I applied and was confirmed June 28..How long does it usually take Emory to make a decision?
Based off the ABA 509 report, I'm within their range, but I don't come from a strong school, which makes me feel like this application is hopeless..

They got back to me pretty quickly. I was confirmed 6/22 and accepted 6/29 (TT, top 15% 3.6). Do be aware though that the deadline for OCI bidding is 7/5 so you'll likely miss that if you are accepted. From what I've heard, that's really early.

I asked them and they don't do a status check like most other schools. However, there does seem to be something.
https://opus.emory.edu. If you applied for financial aid, there may be some instructions on how to access.
Otherwise, I think they ask for your social? Not sure.

Has anyone heard any updates?
Last communication I had with admissions was that they are still discussing my file and that they hope to have a decision for me soon..

Not sure if this is good or bad, but the anxiety is driving me nuts!

I am in the same position! Why is it taking so long lol?

I accepted another offer meantime from a safe school bc seat deadline was yesterday for me and was wondering if Emory does come through can I rescind my acceptance from the other law school? Will there be any ramifications besides losing seat deposit?

Hopefully tomorrow is the day.
It's fine because I've gotten into other schools, but Emory is the goal.

As long as I know the decision I'll be at peace!

So OPUS no longer allows me to log on anymore.
I called IT support and they said a possibility could be that my status has changed.
This could mean a decision was made and the system is just catching up.
Still don't know if i'm rejected or accepted though!!
