I changed to completed on 1/20 (probably my 6th status change) and never received a WL/ding e-mail. And I have been unable to generate a password.


I had "Application Completed" at at least one status update BEFORE this last update, so not JUST the final update is to "completed". I know I've said that a couple of times already but I honestly don't think there's a difference between "Complete" and "completed".


I agree.

Bumping this question.... of those WLed/Rejected, how soon did your email come after you had your final update?

I applied to both PT and FT. I was able to generate a username and password today after I saw the 1/24 update on the application status page. I am assuming that I am only admitted to the PT program due to a change on the status checker (switched from "Both" to "PT"). I interviewed on 12/29. I can't think of any other pertinent info right now. I'm so hyped.

So in 3 hours I'm going to phone GULC and ask them about the "Complete" vs "Completed" thing and I'll let you know what they tell me, if they tell me anything.

I'm getting twitchy now - it still only said "complete" on 1/14 and it's "completed" as of 1/21, but I haven't received a ding email yet although they had a chance to give me one yesterday. Dare I hope I was waitlisted?

I'm sorry if this is an insensitive question for those who were dinged (I hope all of you nevertheless become awesome lawyers with 160k offers where ever you graduate from): when you got the ding email, were you notified the same day as the application went "completed", or before the status change, or did it say "completed" for a few days before you were dinged?

Called GULC. Getting "Application Completed" does not mean that they have made a decision on your application yet, it just means that you're in review. "Complete" means your application is ready for review.

And since they never tell you when your review ends and a decision is made, your status will still say "completed" when you get your decision.

just a random paranoid thought: for those who applied ED, does your status checker note that anywhere?

Congrats!!! And +1 here... I went complete for the third time on 1/24 and I was just able to generate a username and password!! I think I've read before that the username/password typically don't work until the end of the week though, right?

That would make sense. I'm in the same boat as you and my username/pw won't work for me yet.

Updated 1/25. Still says "application completed". Can't get into admitted student's site.

GULC, baby, you're makin' me crazy.

Same here, updated from 1/21. Though the "program time" line still reads "both." This is maddening.

Dear Georgetown,

Please look at my application. I know I wasn't good enough for you to let me in ED but could you please let me in RD? Pretty please? You've been ignoring me since December 10 and I applied back in October. I feel like a fish on your hook and you are taking your sweet time to decide whether to reel me in or throw me back into the sea.

I still really really really love you (puhleeeeeeeeease let me in),

Swimmergirl

I was able to generate the username and PW just now (Application Completed, 1/24/11), but I could not log into the ASW with them.

Did people experience similar delays before?

No, it just means you haven't gotten in yet.
