i don't think so...i updated to 11/11 about a week after mine but thats it, and i don't think anybody else has a decision either


I interviewed 11/1 and updated 11/4. No decision. I'm guessing they're waiting to send out waitlists :cry:

Any consensus on who is getting interviews? Is it mostly for long shots, the middle 50%, or just random? I got an email about it today.

Borderline applicants, splitters, maybe some non-traditional students. My interviewer said it most likely means they're interested but want to know more about you before they make a decision. According to past threads there have been many waitlists, many admits, and few rejects from the interview pool.

+1. When I told my Uni.'s pre-law adviser she was very positive- said it meant they were interested. It definitely means you're in the more likely to be admitted half of the probability spectrum.

Called today to sort out why I hadn't gotten an acknowledgement email/status checker (turns out they had the wrong email address, d'oh!) and got an interview email hours later. How long does it usually take for an alumnus/a to get in touch? In the email they said it can take weeks ( :!: ).

I'm with Sentry on that one. And worried that those little postcards could easily go missing/overlooked. I'm sure we'd figure it out at SOME point.

"Complete" 10/28
Updated 11/4, 11/11, 11/16

If decisions are going to go out this week, is it a good thing to have been updated on 11/16?

Would really like to get the ball rolling with a nice acceptance...

idk
I got updated on 11/16 and because of my LSAT score I imagine they'll be reviewing me again, so not everyone on 16 will be getting a letter or email I imagine.

They'll see the LSAT score and give you more money, you have nothing to worry about

Or (sorry to say this :( ), they'll YP you because you will be getting more lucrative offers than Georgetown can give you.

I thought there was speculation about that a few pages back. I could be confused though. I hope I'm wrong anyway.

I found this thread, seems like they YP with a "preferred preferred" wait list. Seems like if you get put on that and write a LOCI/Why Georgetown you should be in

Yield protect. Some schools, to try and protect their yield rate (the % of people offered admittance who actually matriculate), will reject/waitlist people whose stats make them "too good" for that school. For an example of a school that people accuse of being a flagrant YPer, see American's graph on lawschoolnumbers: http://american.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/0910/

IMO very few people in that thread are YP candidates, most are splitters/borderline candidates. The few that had high numbers and were waitlisted may have had something else seriously wrong with their application.

See LSN applicants above both medians last year:

http://gulc.lawschoolnumbers.com/applic ... ype=jd&p=1

Not a single reject, very few waitlists. Almost every waitlisted applicant applied late in the cycle.
