this waiting game is awful!


If you didn't apply EA, they will want your second semester grades before you get a decision.


Yeah, I am a little different in that I finished my first year and then took a leave of absence from law school to pursue a full-time job I couldn't turn down so they already have my second semester grades. :)

I think I am just dying to hear from schools, I wish they'd have a quicker turnaround, the waiting is agonizing!

What was your reasoning for not applying EA, then? Just curious.

TTRansfer, did adcomms say "early may" for your xfer group? If so, did they send them before that? Do you think there is any chance EA decisions will be sent this week?

TTRansfer, I didn't apply for March 1st to GW because it took a while to get my 6 recommenders letters all submitted and ready to rock. It is a lot of coordinating. Also my first choice is Georgetown and there deadline is March 15th so I figured submitting GW then was good enough. Fingers crossed!

I think they only said early April. It was pretty quick turnaround, Georgetown last year was the hold-out; I'd already gotten into WUSTL & GW before hearing from GULC. I guess that they're just moving super slow this year; tbf they did cut the entering class by like 20% this year.

Yeah, last year it was like Apr. 2d...I wonder if reduced class size by 20% means they will be taking more transfers? Every email I get is excruciating to check! Haha

Should I send LoCI today making it clear that I want to be at GW and that I will be bidding for the PLIP OCI? I have sent previous email 3 weeks ago but am not sure if a 2d email reiterating my interest is necessary.

Status: "decision made"

Was told that a decision letter will be sent/received by the end of this week.

Keeping all of my fingers crossed.

Applying to the PT division. GPA > 3.0. Works in an IP firm in DC with extensive technical background. Last name starts with a letter between G-K.

Good luck with you all - can't tell whether it's a good/bad letter from the tone of the person that I spoke to in the Adms. office.
