...weird. Never heard of this. Did s/he go to GU?
Nope. There are some similar posts here going back to 2010, but none of the really answer if this is he case for everyone that applies to GU. The email's quite generic, she forwarded it to me:
Thank you for submitting a recommendation to Georgetown Law on behalf
of X Applicant. We truly appreciate your taking the time to
share your thoughts on X applicant with our Admissions Committee.
Each admissions cycle, Georgetown Law typically receives more
applications than any other law school in the country. Our Committee
depends upon recommendations to help us get to know who each unique
applicant is behind the application. Consequently, your first-hand
input is critical in helping our Committee make the difficult
decisions we face as we try to assemble our class. Thank you again
for your insight and for participating in our admissions process.
With gratitude and best regards,
Dean of Admissions
Associate Vice President for Graduate Admissions and Enrollment
