I wrote a Why GULC? and a DS. Also a GPA addendum.

Finally, an optional contract offering a kidney, lung, testicle, gall bladder, or piece of liver in exchange for an acceptance.

I one-upped you all.

I'm still at Complete 1/7, and I'm in the December LSAT-takers club. I'll check again later today.

Anyone who received an Early application hold hear anything yet? They guaranteed decisions by feb. 28th. Looking at last years thread, most of them got waitlisted in the final few days before feb. 28th :(

Hmmm. I took the December LSAT, sent in the app on 1/10, and went to "App Complete" 1/20. 167/3.7, auto-ding/held?

Submitted 11/25 or so, went complete right around then. Has been updated once or twice, and am now "Application Completed" i have no idea what this means?

Also i have been reading the thread but am not sure what the AS website trick is?

I was accepted in December and mine says application completed now. I don't remember what it said before.

The trick is that after you've had a reasonable number of updates (like 3, but I needed 4) you go to this website -- http://www.law.georgetown.edu/admissions/admitted/ -- and click "no password." If you're in, GULC sends you an email with a username and password, which won't work for a while (til 5 p.m. or later). If the website says your information can't be found or something like that, you either did not get in or did not get in yet.

Sorry guys, I'm new to the thread and I went complete 1/3. I don't want to dig through countless pages for my answer. Today I got an email talking about these optional interviews. What's the consensus around here on those? Are they worth doing? Is it a good or bad sign? I live in So-Cal so i'd have to go with the skype version of the interview.

Interviews seem to be offered to borderline candidates. Splitters and reverse splitters.

It can only help, so why not go for it?

I still am. I'm banking on that 10-20ish percent chance of getting off the list. ><

Emailed: Preferred waiting list. submitted 11/25 went complete around then. Application was updated today to Completed.

Anyone have any knowledge about PWL or what to do to help my chances?

An old thread said there are around 450-500 people on the preferred waitlist and 25-50 end up getting pulled off of it.

Best you can do is send a LOCI.

Well those aren't great odds...lol.

I assume LOCI is a 'letter of confirmed interest'.

No, they're not. Though I assume they probably PWL some a lot of people who are unlikely to get off of it (i.e. people who are a touch under both medians), so if you're not that then it may be better.

Yes it is.

Even though it probably won't help, it can't hurt since they've improved so I'd say send it.
