Just WL'ed recently, haven't taken any action yet. At least their letter was encouraging, they made it sound like they expect to get pretty deep into the list.

Yeah I'll write a LOCI. I'm on some other WLs that I would take over GW but I prefer GW to anywhere I've been accepted to so far.

I was put on the wait list at the end of January, haven't heard from a bunch of schools yet but so far GW is definitely a top interest of mine so I do plan to write a LOCI.

Nice to see this thread start heh, I was wondering who else was out there.

Anyone know if the PT and FT waitlists are viewed separately?

Also, did everyone just get a single page letter from Dean Richard?

WL here as well. I'm visiting the school next week--taking a tour and sitting in on a class--and will send in my LOCI shortly thereafter. I'm on other waitlists as well, but GWU is a great school and has been in my crosshairs for a while now.

I'm hoping they view PT and FT pools separately.

Just got waitlisted. I plan on staying on the WL for as long as possible. Does anyone know how large the waitlist pool is?

I'm assuming its pretty deep (solely looking at TLS users).

I've been waitlisted for PT. While I would love to attend GW it's too expensive for my future career goals. I'm visiting DC in March and will tour GMU, and if I have time might tour GW.

I got the WL letter last week. I'm sending in a LOCI and a new rec. letter, and visiting the school.

Does anyone know how many people they took off the waitlist last year?

Also wait listed (deferred from ED, guess they just don't know what to make of me) and staying on. Good luck all!

IMHO, your numbers aren't good enough for GW ED (since they give full scholly). But surprised you were waitlisted for regular.

Good luck to all of us!
