Sent in my Early Action app yesterday morning. Who else is waiting on GW's transfer decisions?

Around Top 10% at a TT.

Top 1%. TTT. Will probably be rejected or deferred, but I really want DC.

From what I've gathered around the web, at Top 1%, you've a really good chance; possibly even one at GULC.

GW is non-binding like GULC, right? Going to do some PS's this week and then really start pushing forward after OCI.

Yes, they are non-binding. I think Chicago is the only binding one.

I used two. One from my initial law school apps and one from my Torts professor.

This may be a dumb question, but how does one get a Dean's Certification Letter? Does GW have a form at all on their site? I know that Georgetown does.

Two. Possibly three if I can get one of my professor's to write it. Not sure of his policy. He is old and hard line.

I'm doing two LORs from professors. One e-mailed me today to say he sent it out to LSAC already, but the other one hasn't. I'm getting a bit worried because he invited me today to sit in on one of his upper level classes to listen to him read an appellate brief and answer brief he wrote but no word from him on when he will write or send the LOR out. I'll remind him this weekend, I guess.


Does anyone know how the deposit(s) work for EA?

Has anyone submitted an application yet? How long does it take to get a confirmation email with the status checker information? Thx!

I never got a tracker; I got an email from the Admissions Office telling me personally that they received my transcripts, application, and letter from the dean. Then she said because it was in so early that I should hear back mid-March... But no tracker. Maybe that's for the best.

What're your numbers? They take in like 100 people and this is the first time they've done EA, so I'm guessing not a lot of people are applying this early.

Top 29% at a TT w/ a 3.14. My professor is a GW alum and said she'd write a LOR if I applied there in addition to some other schools. So I did.

Got an email today with the status checker, email said I'm complete but the status checker does not. Hmmm.... oh well, now commences the longest month wait of my life.

LSAC is very slow in updating as of right now. My first LOR should have been there and listed. Was sent out last week.

LSAC was super fast for me. They uploaded my two letters the days they arrived. However, I sent both priority mail. Not sure if that affects the timing at all.

Very close to my numbers; for may sake as well, I hope you get in EA! I wonder what kind of applicant they'll take in EA since this is their first year doing it.

GW said their EA standards are the same as regular transfer admissions. You would have to maintain a B avg in the Spring though

How many does GW normally take in a transfer class including EA and RD?
