Adcom told me "a couple of weeks" today, which is disappointing. I wonder if they extended their deposit deadline again.

Every major school has given some sort of an update. Emory has had no communication
21:02
Yeah, it's tricky. I really don't want to pay my upcoming second deposit while waiting for Emory to say something, but what choice do I have?
Does Emory even accept people off the waitlist?

Sorry, just seeing this. When I email, it's pretty short. Just saying I'm still very interested but will remain patient through the process. Let us know what they respond back with.

they said "we expect updates for the waitlist to begin in mid-june"
13:04
Mid-June, rude! I told them I would be patient so I guess I'll be sticking around.
13:05

Does anyone have any new insight into what is going on? We are in June, and there is still radio silence.
badbitty777
17:36
Have you emailed them since I did
I emailed admissions today to check in, and they said that once they have an update, they will let me know. Their emails have become more and more vague; I don't think they know what is going on.

fr, how slow..
14:41
Right? When I first was waitlisted, I was told I would receive a decision "soon". That has moved to "a couple weeks" to "mid-June" to "soon".

10:42
theyre pissing me off
12:35
I was offered a spot off a waitlist at another school, but I have to deposit by Friday. I would still rather go to Emory. I wish it was appropriate to reach out to Emory and ask if they would be looking at their waitlist this week, but I know it'd be ineffective and annoying.
I’m rooting for y’all bc I need more instate people to get into Emory to free up from the GSU waitlist lol
