To the 6/22 admits: do you think they specifically put the deadline at 6/28 before other T14s give out acceptances?

I know Mich starts around 6/28 Penn/NYU around 7/8, and CLS at 7/15 or so.

Is anyone holding out, or is everyone biting the bullet and depositing?

Also is anyone willing to share how much the deposit is?

They did this when I applied EA too. I only had about 6 days to mail in my deposit. I think it could be some of this but also they want to know how many more applicants they can admit.

but seriously

trying to gauge if I should drop the $1000 at GW or take my chances of getting into GULC (seems slim right now....)
if GULC's deposit is also super expensive, I might decide to just save my money for that. Can someone clue those of us still waiting on how much it is / how many days they give you to send it in?

**Just thought I would drop this for next year's applicants. When the Gtown updated my status checker and mailed my letter of acceptance by snail mail, I noticed the numerical number 1 changed to One. As in

1 Smith Lane

Wait - so RD people have smaller deposits than EA people? Mine was $1200 :|


Also, my address never changed on the status checker when I was accepted. It stayed at 325 xxxx Avenue

Yes, because there is a higher likelihood that EA people will wait to see if they can get into better law schools RD. With a $1,200 price tag on accepting an EA seat, GULC can secure the die hards, or the people with money to blow (should they go to a better school).

Does anyone know if the deposit must be received or postmarked by the deadline?

@ TFR

"To hold your space in the entering class, you will need to submit a deposit of $800 . . . by Thursday, June 28th . . ."

I assume this means postmarked...

How are you supposed to put your new school on your resume for OCI? Is there a thread for this (I looked but couldnt find one). Do I keep my old school beneath it? Thanks!!!!

Short answer: yes.

When you get your log-in information, this manual has samples of transfer resumes: https://www.law.georgetown.edu/system/login.cfm?rp=/career/cpm/index.cfm

1. Have any accepted folks visited the career center yet?
2. Have any accepted folks registered for classes?

Noticed that this question was not answered. Are there any people who was accepted by Georgetown who are waiting to hear back from other schools still or are you sure that you are definitely going to Georgetown?

Praying... But regardless.. Everything happens for a reason is something I have been saying to myself A LOT throughout this process... Good luck to everyone who got a 6/25 status change today... And for the 6/22 people Congrats on your admit, if you choose another school later in the game, withdraw quickly so wait list people can get off! :)

Others?

Around-ish 10% at a TT but we don't rank. I am from the area and have compelling reasons to be in D.C.
