Does GT interview mostly everyone?

Postby GoingForGold » Fri Jan 25, 2013 6:59 pm

Does Georgetown only interview what they would consider borderline applicants? This is the first school to go beyond a 'complete' for me and I am wondering if this is not so good a sign for the rest of my cycle given that I am a 3.6/176 and I read of people getting accepted by Georgetown without an interview and worse numbers on this board. Was the rest of my application not so good or something?

In your case, probably more for YP.

You're a lock at GULC. Don't worry. I believe they mostly interview borderline candidates.

This. They're gauging your interest.

They also interview splitters and other borderline applicants.

ETA: Scooped.

GULC doesn't really YP.

OP, I hope you applied to Columbia and NYU. You're a virtual lock at both. You also have a small but non-zero shot at Harvard.

Yes, I applied to both of those as well as Harvard. And yesterday I applied to Stanford after finding a non-URM on LSN who got accepted this cycle. I applied to the T14 minus Yale, Michigan, Cornell, and Berkeley. Ideally I end up having to choose between Stanford/Harvard at sticker vs some money at Penn/Virginia vs a lot of money at NU/GULC. Although, I suspect it's more likely I end up looking at CCN at sticker vs some money at NU/GULC.
