How is everyone feeling about the correlation between citizenship/address changes and admittance? Does any one know what time of day backdoor tended to become available?

Can someone please explain to me what “backdoor” is and how it works?

The "back door" is just requesting a password to access the admitted students website at http://apps.law.georgetown.edu/admitted-students/. Usually, you can get your password a few days before receiving a physical acceptance letter.

Here's my dumb question of the day: I type in my email that I applied with, yes?

Yes. How would they have an email you didn’t apply with?

I wasn't sure if they provide an email or not. For example, my school uses First.Last@XXXX.edu. So, I didn't know if I was supposed to be using GULC's format or not.

Just a question, I've been hearing around about how a change in citizenship and address is a good indication for an acceptance. Is that incorrect? Is it just saying that decisions are coming within a week?

Thanks guys

FYI: If they send acceptances via USPS, you can supposedly see pictures of all your incoming mail for the next several days if you register at https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/p ... art.action. Worth a try for the especially anxious (like myself)! Let us know if anything pops up!

My (and seemingly everyone else's) initial address change occurred on April 19th. Did anyone on here have their address change on the 20th?

Yes. In 2017 and 2016, backdoor access worked 3 business days after the address change. So considering that our addresses changed on Thursday, today should be the day.

I guess today wasn't the day... unless someone tried backdoor and got in.
