So true, dropping the Gtown name to non-TLS contributors feels pretty good no matter where you are in the country.


I live in DC, and had multiple people at a bar the other night trying to convince me that GULC is #1 law school nationally.


lol this is great - someone at the World Bank told me the same thing - I'm cool with that

I've always heard that GULC is the king of lay prestige after Harvard. One GULC alum I spoke to pointed out that it's useful when you're interviewing with someone who isn't a lawyer although I doubt it's worth very much regardless.


At the end of the day -- in my humble opinion -- if you go to a school in the top 25 --you'll have some doors opened for you. If you contribute to whatever organization you start with - you'll do well and more doors will open. If your work ethic is crap and you don't contribute, it doesn't matter where your JD is from -- you'll fizzle out career-wise. GULC, like many schools, will open doors for you (maybe not as many as UVA initially) - but it's what you do once you walk through that door that determines your success! However, I do understand the reasoning from folks that want as many doors open as possible - especially a K-JD. Again though - Im just a 0L - what the hell do I know! :)

I just received a "Georgetown Law Scholarship Inquiry Received" email. Is this an email responding to my feeler email response? It's worded more like a "we have received your solicitation email" (which I did send).

Yep I got the same one. Pretty sure it's just confirmation that they recieved your solicitation and will consider it.

I just got an email about my financial aid award and its all loans...does this mean I'm definitely not getting any merit aid?

Got the same email, but my merit scholarship was on there. I guess I'm not getting need aid, since it was all loans.

I was in the first round of scholarship awards. When I got the complete financial award email (separate from scholarship emails), the package it linked to showed my merit award too. But I also wouldn't say it -definitely- means you aren't getting any scholarship money.

This MyAccess page is pretty confusing to me. All other schools give financial aid over three years, but Georgetown only makes the award for one year? Does anyone understand what this means/is it subject to change?

sooo i got the email, but after spending 20 minutes trying to get onto MyAccess and trying to figure out the difference between this and the admitted students website, there is no award available. wut. am i doing this wrong?

Edit: nvm excessive refreshing has worked. "Deans Tuition Grant" = merit award right?

Anyone willing to share scholly details, please PM me! :mrgreen:

eek: I just checked and I got the email as well, but I only see loans?

edit2: my feeler email response did say that I'd hear back in early April, so I'm going to assume that this isn't a bad sign.

If anyone's checking this, I was told that people are moving over to Dan's in Adams Morgan. My group seems to be the first one here, but chatting with some current students. Come by! I am wearing an extremely pink rain jacket.

I'm not sure, but there is this on the site:

"Dean's Tuition Grants are awarded to approximately 1/3 of the full-time J.D. class based on financial need."

That seems to imply need-based?
