Does anyone have an idea of how long it typically takes the adcomm to receive the interview report, re-review the application, and make a decision?


depends on your interviewer (obviously), but I received a "decision" (a hold) about a week after interviewing


did you get an update after the file was (assumingly) sent into GULC and then another when you got the decision? thanks.


as far as i know my status date only changed once, when i got the hold email, but it's possible there was one in between that i missed

I am still stuck at 2/3. I think Georgetown hates me or something.

OMG ME TOO ME TOO.......Keep me posted yea? I think we are in the same bucket.


Will do...Ideally I would love to have G'Town as an option...to be honest it has been my dream school for years, but UVA has made me less worried about the outcome


me too, it was where I wanted to go to undergrad it is just that dream school you know? But I am the same, I've fallen in love UT so while this would be great I really expect WL.


Well as a Texan you are in great shape with UT...big fan of the law school...my best friend's dad is a partner at Susman Godfrey and he went there so I grew up viewing the school in the same light as Harvard haha

Oh man. We really are twins. The same thing happened to me. How long after the fourth do you think we'll have to wait before we hear???

I'm inclined to think soon, with so many updates close together...but who knows really. I've only been complete since early January so I have a hard time guessing. Please GULC, give me good news!!

Should I consider it a good sign that I made it to 4 completes? I'm applying for the PT program with sub-par numbers but killer softs... anyone want to give me a false sense of hope?

4 updates as opposed to 3? Seems like they just can't let you go yet......

Yup. I went complete 1/10 and then I think the 25th, and then 2/9 and again today. Please oh please; I live in DC now and kinda love the idea of staying...

"Preferred waitlist" email. Gotta say, that surprises me a bit. I guess I probably wouldn't have gone, anyway, so it does help their yield.

Edit: "The Committee has designated you as part of a small select group within the Preferred Waiting List that will be given priority as spaces open up in the entering class." Seriously?

Forgive my incessant freakouts on this. But... if I don't get any emails from Gtown today (waitlist or rejection), which is the date of my 4th update, should I be thinking happy thoughts? Or am I totally delusional?

preferred wait list via e-mail.

i'm considering expressing interest in remaining on the list, so that they will accept me, and then i will withdraw. that way they cannot use me to game their matriculant rate. super sketchy and a huge turn-off.
