Hey, I'm a Florida senior who wants to apply Early Decision I to Emory. I'd like to know whether I have a real shot at the school or if I should save the ED and apply elsewhere. A simple yes, I should apply, or no, I shouldn't try will mean a lot. Thanks.

You should fare well. If you like Emory better than Columbia, then my opinion is a 'yes'. Emory is numbers driven. ED is a big plus at Emory. Your SAT score is towards the higher end of the middle 50%, so you have a good shot.
A teacher and/or extra recommendation would be a good idea. For instance, I asked an AP teacher and one of my extra-curricular advisors to write recommendations, eventhough I'm applying RD to Emory.
Make sure the additional recommendations give Emory's ad-com further insight into your character (e.g. drive, motivation, dedication, interests) and uniqueness.
Emory also tracks your demonstrated interest in the university, so contacting a student or a department that interests you is a plus.
I would also recommend ordering a video for the Emory website, as the company that produces the DVDs lets the ad com know that you are interested in Emory.
Sorry this is a bit long, but I hope this helps.
PS--Vandy is another good southern university.

thanks blaineko, by the way, is seriously considered vandy for a long time, in fact, right now, it's the only school that has a shot to change my mind. However, I'm 95% sure I'm going to apply ED to Emory

Kewl. I'm applying to both Emory and Vandy too. Thought about Duke, but I liked the feel of Vandy and Emory better. I like Atlanta better than Nashville, but the universities are very close together on my list. I might add Chapel Hill to my list, though.
Anyways, good luck on your apps. I'm positive you'll do well.

Plus, Emory's a few thousand bucks cheaper than vandy... that'll save a lot of money in the long run... thanks again, good luck to you too

just give me a percentage chance... that's all i really need

I think you should defninely apply to Emory ED. Columbia ED doesn't really increase your chances...so Emory ED I say you have about a 65% chance...if you decided on Vanderbilt, I'd say its about the same. Northwestern is another school that accepts ALOT more ED applicans (about 50% opposed to 25% RD). It's somewhat similar to the schools you are looking at and Chicago (which is close to Evanston) is better than Nashville or Atlanta, in my opinion
