do we think any more As? i dont want to be ghosted
I spoke with them about 2 weeks ago and they said i should hear from them within this week. I still havent heard anything :/
hopefully i dont get ghosted because i haven't seen anymore A's rolling out
The last thing I remember seeing on here and reddit was about 2 waves of WL and a slight trickle of A's and R's. I guess they like to play their cards close to their chest.
Emailed them to ask for an update and was responded to with a rejection very soon after
Good luck to y’all!
anyone else still being ghosted?
Just got the WL email lmao
any waitlist movement?
I saw someone list on here that they were WL then R in July but now I don’t see the post
So, they are basically full rn? still hoping to hear some positive news from them, though =(
Here's to hoping that a WL update will come soon
Last cycle Emory was one of the last schools to start releasing waves of A's, so just keep that in mind. I can't remember but I think their first wave of A's came in late February or early March. Granted last cycle was crazy with the rankings (which are close to pointless) algorithms changing. This process is one that necessitates patience.
Emory's graphy has a fair few who got in below both in 2022
what are you even talking about
sorry meant to put that in general
is a deferral from ED just a soft rejection? someone be honest
in some schools it's a soft waitlist but others it really doesn't mean anything
if they were gonna reject you they'd reject now
