Applying to Georgetown

Postby SHANbangs » Mon Jun 28, 2010 4:07 pm

Can you apply to georgetown full time and part time at the same time? Can you ED both? I already e-mailed the admissions office, but they still haven't responded.

Yes, you can apply to both. But anecdotally, your chases of a part-time admissions seem to increase if you only apply PT.

So what happens if you ED both and are accepted to both? How does that work in terms of binding agreements? Or is it that you ED to the school and you just select both programs for consideration? Sorry for the ridiculously anal retentive questions.

This. They'll only offer admission to one of the programs.

do most schools with pt allow this? is it detrimental enough to chance at acceptance at the school overall that applying to both isn't worth it?

No, other schools only allow you to apply to one, it depends on the school. For GULC though, if your numbers aren't going to cut it for FT, you ABSOLUTELYx100 should be applying to PT only.

Yeahhh I dunno if this is as important anymore since USNWR started counting PT stats. I originally applied FT only, was WL'ed, then asked to be considered for both programs, and got in PT.

I think this PT only thing is still a backdoor into GULC. Both Waterman and I got into GULC PT with numbers that never would have cut it for FT.
