Last year, I had one deposit go missing in the mail, which prompted a last-minute rush to hand-deliver it to an admissions office. So, I like to leave lots of time, and now I do certified mail to make sure someone gets it. Plus, I'm a big stretch for GULC at this point. Now that the dates don't seem to mean anything, I'm back to looking at this realistically. I thought for a day that maybe they saw something in my soft factors that they liked and that I had a shot at GULC, but it's unlikely right now.
If I boost my grades a bit higher and get into a better school for RD, then I guess I lose $1K. But I'm pretty pleased with GW if I don't get into a higher-ranked school.
Precisely. I felt for a minute there that I was incredibly lucky, like I had somehow nailed it and was super excited on Friday. But I'm a stretch at Georgetown. I don't particularly have any qualms with GW so I'm fine with depositing there. As to applying early to GW, even if your grades slip from top 10% down to top 25% you stand a better chance of getting some kind of worthwhile job at GW than in the same position at a TTT.
That said, when I get my GULC deferral I'll take it as I expected. I'll just nail this semester then with a 4.0 and transfer to Princeton and go into Space Law, so I don't care, everything will be awesome. Not completely depressing.
