How many of you torture yourselves by imagining life at GULC? Imagining your room at Gewirz Student Center, imagining your classes, studying in the GULC library, walking around Capitol Hill because it's right there, taking the train into the Union Square station every morning, getting externships in DC, shopping for groceries in DC, and all of that?

Because this is how I torture myself.

If I end up getting dinged, it will not be pretty.

Have you taken a look at lawschoolnumbers.com. I wish you the very best but you should prepare to be be dinged or waitlisted.

I submitted on 12/13, most recent update on 1/5 (only the 2nd update) and nothing since then (including no email for interview). Any ideas what that means? I am compulsively shopping to deal with the stress of waiting and my bank account can no longer take it!

3-4 times before a decision is reached? What if your status has changed 6-7 times? I thought that I was going to be an auto-deny but I'm beginning to suspect I'm headed for the waitlist.

I think I remember reading that on the fence candidates they pass on to faculty for review. Did you get an interview invite?

im getting there...ED and my three weeks are nearly up. bad sign or does it seem that GULC takes the full three weeks this cycle (and then some?)


ED'd around December 13 or so...had group interview in early Jan. Still "complete" at 1/4. No telling when I'll get a decision.


I'm in a similar boat. Considering ED turn around timeline and that my status checker was last updated over a month ago, I'm considering emailing them just to see what's up.

I only did it because I got myself very very lost so many times between those two stops this past summer. I feel a sense of haughty entitlement after negotiating the area without dying. :mrgreen:

Same here exactly. Maybe they haven't gotten to the December LSAT-taker pile yet except for auto-admits

Did those of you who interviewed send your interviewer a thank you note or email? I have no idea what the protocol for these things are, this is like my second interview for anything in my life.

I sent a thank you e-mail. I was thinking about also sending a note but thought that would be a bit of overkill.

Email.

My interviewer was pretty nice and is willing to talk to me again if I want to. I know other people who are having a second lunch with their interviewers. But for most people, just email as it is simple and professional.

Thanks!

I was thinking an email would be most appropriate, glad my social skills aren't super rusty. :lol:

Hopefully we hear back soon... I want that beautiful little envelope in my mailbox!

how in the world did so many people get an interview? it's all initiated by the admissions committee, right?

Is the interview a necessary step before acceptance, or is it just for marginal admits? Any sense what portion of admits get interviewed?

General consensus has been that interviews (alum interviews, not group interviews) are for borderline applicants, mostly splitters. You definitely don't need to be interviewed to be admitted.

I didn't realize there was a difference between alum and group interviews. What are the group ones for, then (meaning, the consensus with those)?

I didn't have a group interview, but reading back through the thread a bunch of people above both medians were invited to group interviews, which made people think that it was more of a way to gauge applicant interest.

This is all complete speculation though, based on everyone's experiences so far this cycle.
