Question on GW App

Postby TIKITEMBO » Mon Jan 02, 2012 5:46 pm

Under section 13: Division of GW

1. Are you also applying to any other division of GW? Yes or No?
2. If yes, which division of GW?

I'm not exactly sure what this means. I checked that I was interested in the full-time program, but is this question asking if I would be interested in the part-time program as well? Or is it maybe asking if I'm interested in a dual-degree program? If it only meant part-time or full-time, wouldn't the first choice I made negate needing to specify which other division I was also applying to (as there are only two choices)?

It seems like the admissions office is busy today, so I thought I'd ask here.

I took it to mean another part of GW, like dual degree, since there was already the question about part vs. full time. (I applied to GW last year).

Thanks for the response. Do you think checking yes and putting part-time as the extra division would be okay? Or just stick to only dual degree programs?

Personally, I wouldn't put part time there since I think it's covered by the earlier question and I think they mean any non-law divisions of GW, since the question asks "any other division of GW" and not "any other division of GW Law". (At least that's what it said on my app from last year- don't know if it changed).
Would it be okay? I don't think it would be a big deal since anyone reading it could figure out what you meant. But if I were reading apps and knew I intended that question to be for dual degree stuff, I might think it was weird that you put part time there.

I hear ya. I wish it was like other school apps in that it explicitly asked about dual degrees.
