Georgetown Law Class of 2019

(housing, friendships, future exams, all things 2019)

Where did you end up?

Georgetown. DC is the center of everything in the country that matters, so of course I'm going to the best school in DC. Also, have you SEEN the student rec center?!

UT. Texas is the center of everything in the country that matters, so of course I'm going to the best school in Texas.

George Washington. Georgetown is great, but G-Dub is in Foggy Bottom and I'd like to eat at ShopHouse as often as humanly possible.

Vanderbilt. Georgetown is too big, and I need to live in a city with actual barbecue.

UCLA. I don't understand why people would voluntarily go to law school somewhere that has winter.

Cornell. I want all of the prestige of Georgetown, but without all of that pesky cosmopolitan culture.

Northwestern. I needed a school that was more business-minded, and also one that has buildings that don't remind me of the USSR.

UVA. DC is great and all, but why live in DC when I can pay cost of living in Charlottesville for three years?

Hello guys,

I am trying to satisfy the "unsatisfied requirements" on My Access. The site claims I need to complete two loan counseling sessions. However, I completed both of these sessions (twice) over a month ago. I made sure to list Georgetown as the school to receive my counseling session results. Is anyone else having this problem? I need to figure this out so I can accept my financial aid package!

Any help is much appreciated!

I'm having the same issue, I did the counseling about two weeks ago.

Just as a heads up to anyone else with this problem, I called the financial aid office. They said the system doesn't update automatically. It should update in June!

I just received my "financial aid award", but it looks like I didn't actually receive an award of any kind. Is there someone else in this position who would be comfortable describing their "Award Package" to me so I can verify?

Yeah they call being approved for loans an award for some reason. If all you see is two rows of different loans, then that means that they did not award you any financial aid and you only qualify for loans.

Just a quick reminder to set your curriculum preference before June 1! It's on the ASW.

For anyone else wanting confirmation that your official transcript and Dean's certification form were received, you can check that back on the good old status checker.

Got an email from Andy this morning re double depositing...

"I hope this email finds you well. I'm writing to touch base with you
about your enrollment at Georgetown Law. You may know that we are
one of the law schools that participates in something called the
Overlap Report, a report provided by LSAC which tells schools if
students have deposited at multiple law schools. The most recent
report we received indicates that you are deposited here and
elsewhere as well. While we would love everyone to deposit only at
Georgetown, we realize that is not always the case.

However, since we are trying to make final enrollment decisions about
our class right now, the Admissions Committee asked me to reach out
to you to confirm that you have made a final decision to come to
Georgetown."


Any one else get this? I deposited at UT as well, I had hoped it would help in scholarship negotiation but no such luck. I'm wondering if there's any use to try and use this to ask for more money again, even though I've already been told no... Or if I should just give up on trying to get more money and confirm that I've decided on Georgetown (which I have). Also, anyone know if this is binding?

Same situation. No idea what this means for scholarship negotiations.

Wherever you're deposited doesn't do the overlap report.

any thoughts on whether it would be appropriate to reply and basically say "I hope to ultimately commit to Georgetown but I'm still weighing the financial factors since x school is cheaper, and I'm not ready to make a binding commitment. thanks"
