Sadness. I'm not going to be back at my mailing address for ages! I'm never going to be able to log in and see all the great stuff I have been locked out of all summer. Well I hope along with the netids we also get some other form of communication. Maybe an update to the admitted student site.

Type your last name in there and it should come up with your name if you're in there. I checked today and my name showed up, although it wasn't there a couple of weeks ago when I last checked. Tells you that they're at least doing SOMETHING :)

Thanks. Sure enough, my name is on there, even if I don't have a netID to access my presumed e-mail account. =)

Haha I know, it's pretty useless other than to confirm that they haven't forgotten about completely lol
I think I read somewhere that your e-mail is actually your netID with @law.georgetown.edu at the end or something like that.

Your email address is netid@law.georgetown.edu
Your temporary password is probably in the letter, so you won't be able to log in until that freaking letter arrives. I'm in the same boat!

Where do you live? I'm on the west coast and didn't get mine in the mail today, so I assume you're on the eastern seaboard?

That's the only area in which Georgetown disappoints. Not that practical in teachings (at least in my areas) and no business concentration. I'm going to make my own based on bus. curriculum from UVa and Vandy. Actually pretty easy, and I've got enough degrees as is.

For those wondering, the info is:
login: netid
pword: A+last 6 numbers of you student ident number aka GoCard number

It mentions it on the website there. So if you know your GoCard number, you'll be able to log into all of the super secret web information. Like course evaluation, sexy!

Just got my GoCard number, university netID and e-mail address.
Still can't figure out how to access all the stuff I'm supposed to be able to access with this information, but I'll eventually get used to it.

Have you seen this page? http://www.law.georgetown.edu/curriculum/tab_courses.cfm

While you are technically correct in saying that there is no "business concentration" (because Georgetown doesn't offer concentrations/certificates at all), there is the JD/MBA Joint Degree program and there are several course clusters in "business law": Administrative Law; Antitrust Law; Commercial and Advanced Contract Law; Communications Law; Corporate Law and Securities Regulation; Employment and Labor Law; Intellectual Property, Entertainment, and Technology Law... and several more. Georgetown offers far more course options in "business law" (and probably just about any other specialty, as well) than does any other school in the country (except maybe Harvard); you just have to be more specific about what KIND of business law.

Oh yeah-- and you can also take classes at the main campus (under a different program) AND have those credits count toward your JD (a reasonable number of credits, at least) as long as you can justify the applicability of the course to your course of study and future plans.

I also got the mailing. Other than the e-mail account, I'm not quite sure what we're supposed to be able to access, but I'm still excited about just that and minutes ago joined the Georgetown facebook network :D .

That is really exciting news. I'm definitely going to take some classes through here, in that case. I'm really interested in real estate law, especially w/r/t development, so it'd fit well with my interests.

hello all,

so as it turns out our email/ netid names are our initials...

does anyone know if we can change our email addresses?

gringa's parents gave her a beautiful name, but unfortunately did not realize what the initials would spell.

I'm going to guess Ass :P I was wondering the same thing, just because they gave me a somewhat odd number after my initials, and I'd much rather just have my first two initials+my full last name.

No you cannot change your netid. The numbers at the end are where you fall in line of people with the same initials as you. As far as I know, no one has ever been able to get their netid changed. Maybe they would make an exception for a curse, but probably not.
