What are my chances?

Postby SammyJ » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:38 pm

I am top 4% at a school ranked in the 90s. Any shot at getting into Georgetown by applying "early action"?

Thanks in advance!

I'm hesitant to place a numeric value on your chances, but you will be competitive if you cross your T's and dot your I's on the application and put forth a well written PS.

I think he has a better than 50% shot from what I've seen from transferapps. I think more like a 75% chance. He seems to be right in that "range" that they take EA.

I think he's a 50% shot for EA...75% for RD. But I'm not the admissions office...its only a guestimation based on my monitoring last year of the georgetown board. But whatevs.
