Been under review at Georgetown...good sign?

Postby GermX » Thu Feb 25, 2010 1:39 pm

Been under review since 2/17. I applied for both PT and FT. GPA 3.4, LSAT 169.

From experience, does being under review for a while indicate a good sign (acceptance whether full time or part time program)?

Would give anything to go to georgetown.

probably not too good of a sign. Been UR since 2/12 and i'm bound to get rejected with a 162/3.4.

does anyone know if going under review then back to complete then under review again is indicative of any one result?

UR since 2/19. I did go visit the campus this past weekend while in DC for my SEO interview, what an incredible location in downtown DC! Great campus, my only worries would be parking and cost of housing. Tons of snow everywhere when I was there.

Hopefully my LSAT (in the 75th percentile) will get me through.

It's only a good sign when you get a large package in the mail box rather than a small envelope from a law school. That's about it.

UR doesn't seem to be an indicator of acceptance. I was under review a few times and just got Wled in there mass WL on Monday. They also sent out acceptances. What you dont want is an email and the general feeling seems to be (based on last years results) they send out waitlists and acceptances at around the same time, although acceptances are snail mail, and then they email out rejections about a week later. So hope to get no emails. Painful.

Huh, interesting.

Well, if anything, I'm a waitlist. Most likely a ding, though.

Georgetown acceptances are tiny and square.
