Yeah. After 24 hours I just called the number on the credentials page and they gave me a new temporary password which worked.

Am I admitted to the part-time or full-time program? I am able to log into the ASW, get the credentials and change my password. Haven't received the official letter via mail, and I applied to both part-time and full-time programs. Is there a way to find out which program I am in?

Never mind - just received the letter today. For those who wonder how fast they make a decision after alumni interview, my interview was on 1/26, and the decision letter is dated 2/9. I wasn't able to log into ASW until 2/12, and I believe the letter was delivered today on 2/16. Nothing changed on the status check during the entire process, and no requirement list popped up after I was granted access to ASW.

New poll - I'm curious to see if anyone is applying to PILS or GLS (mostly GLS because I think I am) + the public interest fellows program (which seems like PILS without the scholarship?)

Also I would love to apply for GLS but I know I couldn't demonstrate fluency in my second language. Serious questions about that program though. What kind of job do the people applying for it want out of school. It's my understanding that the whole "international law" thing is basically a myth.

IDK I kind of want it on the off chance that I do really well in 1L so I can apply to the Office of the Legal Adviser at state with that line on my resume. Also demonstrating fluency in the second language has been a huge pain in the ass for me. I work in a french office and am constantly surrounded by francophones but they wouldn't let me use my boss.

Yeah and official language evaluations cost like $400 which I just don't have available.

I know it's early, but those of you that know where you are living or are pretty sure...can you message me and tell me where you're thinking? I went and visited this weekend and I swear I am more confused then before I came.

ps. omg it was so f-ing cold, I can't believe we are going to school there. But campus is great. Was dead when I was there because it was a weekend.

I feel the same way... but I haven't visited yet. I want to be able to lock down a lease by May and be able to move in by early-August, but I'm so overwhelmed I don't even know where to start looking. I've been looking on craigslist and stuff, but it's really hard to actually proceed without knowing whether or not I'll be able to find a roommate(s), and what areas to stay away from and whatnot...

And its 19F in Boston right now... I'll take anything warmer I can get haha

I'm bilingual in Cantonese and I'm fluent in Mandarin... I was hoping I could get someone random from my school's Chinese department to do it, but I've never taken a class

Have you decided if you're applying yet? (Which one?)

I'm deciding between UCLA and GULC, so ignoring how my Cali ass is going to be freezing 1/3 of the year will be hard.

I'll be living off campus most likely (I have a dog). Anyone know anything about the neighborhoods, or whether you need a car?

Yeah I have asked them a bunch of questions about the evaluation, and you can definitely have a language prof who has not taught you do an evaluation - just go in and explain the situation and have a conversation with them, maybe bring a writing sample.

And I'm only applying to GLS - I'd be interested in PI stuff but I don't know anyone who'd be able to write me a LOR to that effect. And there's nothing in my background to support it...

From what my DC friends told me, if you got an apartment in Virginia or Maryland(suburbs), then you'll need to drive to the train station to get to the city by public transit...

I'm still debating whether its worth it to pay less rent but to have to maintain a car... Also I really want to get a dog this summer (I know it's a terrible idea, but a girl can dream...)

Agreed, roommate situation is a game-changer for me as well. I want one but I'd rather live alone then be with someone I don't get along with...I wish they would launch the Facebook page for the Georgetown class of 2018 already so I can do potential roommate research and freak people out with how far in advance I am thinking about this.

Dipper, are you not considering UVA at all?
