They don't require you to but I'm wondering if you guys did.


IIRC, they didn't have a space for it on the application. I just put it on my resume.

Artemis wrote:Candi, I wouldn't quite agree with your assertion that the T30 remains relatively stable while the T2 fluctuates. Indiana University (Bloomington) moved from T2 to #23 in the past couple of years. UC Davis made a huge jump to #23 as well. Meanwhile, Fordham has shifted lower out of the T30. I would say that everything outside of the T14 fluctuates. The T14 stays relatively stable for the most part.



Somewhat tangential, but bearing on the above post ITT:

Can anyone confirm or deny the bolded? And if true, does "past couple years" mean 10-20 years? (Because two years ago I don't think Indiana Bloomington was anywhere near T2). I imagine it would be easy to confuse Indiana Indianapolis (a T2) with Bloomington, but the poster did specify Bloomington.

On GW: I was accepted as a transfer, but ended up declining. Currently planning on transferring to another school. I do think it would be cool to be in DC and go to GW though.

Is is weird that I have not received anything since 6/28? I have not received a denial or acceptance e-mail. It seems that they have a pretty quick turnaround. Any ideas as to what is going on?

Yes, it will still take them a couple of days to update it to complete. They are really good about letting you know when they have received docs, but it still takes time for them to actually process them. It took me about a week.

Thanks for letting me know...I guess I'm just nervous about it taking so long.

In by email. top 5% at school in the 60s + law review.
Deadline for deposit July 14!? Three days to decide :x

Anyone who already paid the deposit know anything about oci's? I am curious about how transfer students fare.

Hi fanlinxun, when did you receive the acceptance email and also when did you go complete? has your status checker changed? Congrats on getting in!


Went complete on 7/7. Acceptance about an hour ago. Status checker still says complete.

Anyone think it's worth it to go to GW from a school in the 50s?
