Meet the Class of 2013

Large Class Continues Tradition of Excellence

Though one of our largest classes ever, our new first-year students continue the strong Emory Law tradition of academic excellence and community leadership. Last year, we received a record 4,583 applications, making the competition for admission tougher than ever.

With a median LSAT of 166 and undergraduate GPA of 3.54, the 293 students who comprise the Class of 2013 exceeded our admission expec≠tations. As you get to know these future Emory lawyers, I am confident you will agree that the future of our community is in good hands.

Already, two first-year students formed our first Military Law Society. The society teamed up with outlaw, our lgbt student group, to address the militaryís Donít Ask, Donít Tell policy this fall as Congress debated the issue. A group of first-year students volunteered at the Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta during Orientation. Other students volunteered with Atlanta projects such as the Oakhurst Community Garden and Jerusalem House.

The economic situation facing prospective students led to a larger than expected matriculation rate. However, we remain committed to maintain≠ing the close community and individualized atten≠tion for each of our classes that underscores the Emory Law student experience.

Thank you for your help in referring the best and brightest.

ó Ethan Rosenzweig 02L, Assistant Dean for Admission and Financial Aid
