haha. I'm all for positive thinking....but how do you figure?


Quickly looking through old threads, I found one example of a person's both changing to PT and then they were accepted to the PT program. not a transfer but i doubt that matters. I would think its good news.

yes. the "under review" does not mean anything, and they are trying to change the app status checker to be like the 1L JD status check. Apparently they started reviewing apps last week or the week before, and it will say "decision rendered" before we hear.



figured the 1L thing. Good news though. My next prophecy is that next Monday or even this Friday will be the first wave of DR


what is DR?

Is there anybody else who applied to both? Is your status still both or do you have one program or the other?

You should probably edit your post to something less ambiguous. I can see this getting out of hand quickly. lol

I applied to both and it still says both.

Edit: the smileys were to show that I was confused and maybe sad if it means something, haha.

Anyway, someone said up above that when it switched from both to pt. it meant they were in pt.

Dude, don't think it matters. I emailed them earlier and they said it was a technical glitch. I really doubt there is more to it than that.

It may be a glitch, but I'm pretty sure it does matter. I also know someone else with auto-admit numbers who applied to both and is now at full-time.

Maybe...but I'm just at a "solid" T3 with a good gpa. I really would be surprised if I fall into the auto admit category. Honestly though who knows. There is probably someone making $8 an hour entering this data and they make one mistake while chowing down on their lunch and we waste half our night wondering what it means.

For what its worth....

I think I am pretty close to auto admit numbers....top 5%+ at a t20 school. I applied for both part time and full time, and now mine says full time. I have no idea what this means.

Interesting possiblity with the PT/FT thing.

But time for some perspective. Most people will not get in EA. But a lot of those deferred will be admitted under regular decision if they put in a similar performance second semester. I know it's tough, but you all need to be focused on finals right now. In any case, good luck to everybody (with finals and EA)!

Hey guys. I have had a question for a while and was wondering if any of you could answer it. When Gtown says they accept 100 transfer students, does this include BOTH full time and part time students or just full time. Thanks for your help! :D

Another question similar to this: is it 100 accepted or 100 offers?

I believe around 100 matriculate in the fall, over 600 apply. I think that they admit more than many of us think, though EA is probably a bit of a different story. But since overall movement from first to second semester isn't major (on average), I'm sure Gtown knows that a large chunk of the "auto-admits" will not be choosing Gtown over T-10s. So even in EA, I think they let in a bit more than just the auto-admits and a few others. But the presumption that they likely won't admit someone (or more than a few) EA who wouldn't get into a higher ranked school if he maintained his grades/rank second semester seems pretty solid.

I am curious about this as well.

Someone else on this thread probably knows more about it than I do, but from what I understand in previous years appx 100 students matriculated, with around 600 applying (for all transfers, not just EA). So, the acceptance number must be quite a bit more than 100 (maybe 150-250?).

I don't know anything about the PT/FT split. I know about 80% of the current enrollment is FT, but I would imagine the PT for transfers would probably be greater than 20% of the total for regular admissions. So possibly ~140 FT acceptances, and ~80 PT. (THESE ARE JUST GUESSES!)

Does anyone else know?

can someone please explain what qualifies one to be considered an "auto admit"

School Rank Student Rank
15-30 ~~~~~~~ Top 5-10%
30-50 ~~~~~~~ Top 5%
51-100 ~~~~~~~ Top 1-3%
T3/T4 ~~~~~~~ is this even possible to be auto admit? what if its the #1 student?

Am I totally off here?

I would think these numbers would qualify as auto-admit. If I was in charge of the GULC EA admissions policy, the kind of students I would want to admit would be those who could transfer into the T10 with a repeat performance, with my thinking being that a possible early acceptance to GULC might cause some of these students to get complacent and not even apply to other schools.
