Nope! Do you know if its better to apply early, since they make all the decisions at once?

Not ready myself. Still have a few loose ends to tie up.

I was wondering about the value of applying early, too. Any takers?

applied on the last day last year and got in; don't think it makes a difference when you apply...

Were you an auto-admit or on the bubble?

Is there really such thing as an auto-admit for GULC EA? It's usually described as more of a black-box. What would you consider auto-admit numbers?

I think last year the poster that got into GULC EA went to a DC-ish area school and was in the top 5-10%. I will not be applying to GULC at all for transfer but good luck to everyone ITT who is.

Im going to try and submit by the middle of February. People should start earlier than later. Ive heard that a lot of professors take up to a month to write LORs.

Not sure if I will be applying EA yet. I probably will apply to GULC RD as a back-up in case I get no better offers and my school refuses to make my scholarship into a full-ride (ie. I don't get better and my school keeps my scholarship where it is at, GULC might get tempting).

Anyone who transferred into GULC last year know roughly what size the transfer class was? Did they take less transfers compared to previous years (I've heard around 100)

Thanks.

For our main 'core' app we just need to send in GTown's Transfer App form, Personal Statement, and Resume, right? Then the LoR's can be added later and school transcripts are requested from GULC?

I applied. I submitted all materials except for the LOR's. I will send the LOR's over to GULC as soon as LSAC receives them. Good luck all!

I would say if you're considering -- EA the application. The Georgetown EA is not binding, and it will be a huge weight off of your shoulders if you can apply early and get in early. :D

You can also still apply up, up, up, as I am planning [hoping] to do this summer.

I guess there are two major reasons behind my vacillation. First, I am not sure if I would use a GULC admission as anything more than a scholarship negotiation tool. Second, I am in the process of building professor relationships for LoR (just started it in early jan). I have a couple of professors in mind for LoRs, but I would prefer to give it a month or two so they know me a bit more than just "the guy who booked" the classes (yea, I know, I should have gone to office hours more often last semester).

I am not targeting the DC market and though GULC is a fair jump from my school, giving up a scholarship/grades/etc, makes it a borderline school for me (ie. not sure if I would attend if admitted). Anyways, if I do apply via EA it won't be till early March (and I will post more details if/when I apply).

Just curious if anyone thinks I should even bother doing this...

I am at a T3/T4 school and ranked 9/135 which puts me right around 6-7% with a GPA of 3.5. I know my odds are pretty slim but the prof I had in mind is a GULC alum and I know she would write a great letter for me. Does that matter at all?

What do you think?

Worth a shot imo. It also depends on your career plans and $ situation at current school.

Hoping to have my application complete this weekend. Just need to reread and edit my PS a couple more times, and then everything should be set.

Something to keep in mind: if you are accepted EA, there are two deposit deadlines before June (and before spring grades are released at most schools). This means that you will end up spending over $1k to keep the acceptance in your back pocket before you hear from anywhere else RD.

Does anybody know how GULC generally contacts EA applicants who are accepted? Phone call?

By mail, according to last year's thread.

There may or may not also be a back-door way through the admitted students website.

Does anyone know if transfer applicants tend to fare better if they apply for both the PT and FT program?

And submitted. Also, received an email from LSAC today that they received my LOR from my law prof. Glad that he was on top of it, so I can just sit back and concentrate on class.

Cornell to GULC? You must really like DC.
