Has anyone received an interview from Georgetown? Has anyone had it?

I had an interview with an alumna on 10/23. The other interview option is the group, but I don't know much about that one.

The Georgetown waiver but it wasnt hidden. Is there any meaningful difference between a hidden and a non hidden waiver?

I don't think there is much difference. A hidden fee waiver is just an unsolicited CRS fee waiver. When you go to the pay screen it says CRS fee waiver. Some schools notify you and some don't. I spoke too soon, I later got a notification of Georgetown's fee waiver, but I had noticed it in the pay screen before the email.

I self-identify Non-Mexican/Puerto Rican Hispanic and I have been getting diversity packages from T14 and T1 law schools. Does it seem that I'll benefit from the same URM advantage that Mexican/Puerto Rican/AA have mostly exclusively had in past cycles? Is this due at least in part to the precipitous drop in applications in the past few years?

3.4/168, curious what to make of these diversity packages I've gotten the mail:

Michigan
Penn
UCLA
Wisconsin


For the record I do not plan on making it an issue in my PS/DS or through my recommenders.

How long did it take them to respond from your confirmation of accepting the interview? It's been over a week for me.

Two business days. My interviewer was very on top of things, though.

Just out of curiosity: what do you think this means for URM applicants? That more will be accepted to better schools while having lower numbers as before?

It means the same thing for URMs that it means for everyone else...schools are going to have to dig deeper to fill their classes.


Yah but I would guess that for URMs it means that the boost will be even bigger no?

Depends if the drop off in URM candidates mirrored the overall population drop off.
