    Hello, I'm glad you started this thread. I applied June 27th and as of Tuesday- August 14th- everything has been checked off. Hoping to hear good news soon

    Hopefully we hear tomorrow (like it says?). All my completed courses were checked off on 8/10 so fingers crossed!

    Is this for the Fall 2019 cohort? I just heard back too and got accepted. Woohoo! Anyone know when we have to decide if we will attend and complete that form by? Also, I only applied in the dream world that I'd get a scholarship like the Woodruff Scholarship. It says we should hear about that by Oct 1. Anyone know how competitive it is? The bios for the current scholars are amazing. I'm sure it's highly unlikely I'd get it but fingers crossed. Otherwise, I won't be attending. I already have undergrad and grad loans over $100k. No way I can afford this.

    Yes, for Fall 2019! I haven't seen any deadline for the deposit and form, but I can't imagine it's due before we hear back about the scholarships, right?

    I followed up with the admissions office. the confirmation of attendance and deposit is due Nov 1st.

    Anyone planning to go to the open house on the 22nd of September? I'm interested but live in DC and it's kind of a long way to go for like 4 hours in the afternoon.

    I eventually decided against going - I'm still in school and it's an expensive flight or a 8+ hour drive for me - especially considering it is such a short open house. I wish they had some sort of program to allow us to email current students with questions

    I was also accepted early! Does anyone know how many spots there are in the cohort?

    Hi Kendra8, thank you for chiming in.....I just applied by the Oct 15 deadline and super excited. I'm from Texas, finishing up my first degree now and really hoping I get in the 2019 cohort. About how many students does Emory accept? If one is accepted how much is the deposit? Does Emory provide a good number of scholarships to those who qualify? Lastly, how does one choose on campus housing & roommate?

    Hi pam3, I don't know the exact number they accept, but I know you have a better chance of being accepted if you apply on the earlier deadlines like October versus the later ones cause they base the later deadlines on how many people have accepted. There's 111 in my cohort and that's about the typical size. The deposit was $300. To be honest about tuition, not very many people got scholarships and at least for my cohort, they didn't give us much for financial aid. Pretty much everyone I know had to take out private loans. For us, because we're more a part of the graduate schools, we don't live on campus. A lot of people live at campus crossings or Emory point apartments. Campus crossings actually does roommate matching. There's also an Emory roommates Facebook page that people use which is how I found my roommates. Let me know if you have any other questions.
