I guess I'm pessimistic because I haven't really seen any applicants without great stats. They have to deny someone.

Is anyone in here concerned about paying for Georgetown? Both admits and hopefuls? Or am I the only one who doesn't have 140k laying around for two years of law school?

I'm worried, but I'm paying close to sticker out-of-state anyways, so it's only a marginal increase in tuition. I'm more worried about the absurd costs of DC housing. The city is absurdly overpriced for being such a lousy city.

Hi friends! I, too, got an update today. Sorry to bring bad news, but I'm fairly confident I'm a reject-- my grades dropped second semester, so I'm only top 1/3 or 1/4 at a lower T1. Of course, here's to hoping. (would loveeee to go to gtown) Best of luck to everyone!

Me too, and I'm also pretty sure I'm a reject as well, also with grades that slipped in spring. 3.3 gpa at a lower T2.

Have we still not identified anyone that did not receive a status update? It seems like they have updated all applicants.

This is random. Anyone out there not get any update? When the 6-22 people had an update how soon after did they get an email of communication?

My friends who are not TLS members also got updates. Maybe this means they touched everyone's file for review but haven't necessarily made decisions yet?

I still have a feeling that if the update DOES mean a decision was rendered, it HAS to be an acceptance. Again, it makes no sense to waitlist or reject people at the top of their classes.

But it looks like everyone got an update today so no way they're all acceptances... Especially not before the last wave's deposit deadline

True. Even the RD decisions so far have been unprecedented with the emailed acceptances.

Maybe. Some applicants may not be paying attention to this thread because of the title.
