Go to the thread "Held at Georgetown" and look at the first page. There is a reference to the thread from last year and they didn't report any acceptances on TLS, only waitlists and rejections. Rejections seem to come out on Friday.

You're above both medians, right? In that case, unless there is something horrendously wrong with your application, the worst thing that will happen is a YP waitlist. If you really want to go to GULC, I'm pretty sure a LOCI will get you off the list.

Fulltime class is now 500. Pt is down from 120 to 80.

Four sections becomes six.

That's a lower class size than before, I think.

Edit add: about the same, but different proportions: http://www.law.georgetown.edu/admissions/QuickFacts.htm

Decrease in section size. Although curriculum "b" may be two sections, one same size section, or a larger section. Presently unknown

Is anyone familiar with the protocol for coming off a hold that you requested? I asked to be held a few weeks ago until they received a letter on my behalf from an alum, acc. to my status checker they received it a few days ago but I'm still on hold as per my request, is this normal?

lurkerlife wrote:So I applied to the Full-Time and Part-Time programs. Up until now, my status checker has always read "Both" under the "Program Time" column. When I checked my status just now, it was updated today and the "Both" has been changed to "Full-Time" under the "Program Time" column.

Earlier ITT, there were people who had their "Both" boxes changed to "Part-Time", and then they later found out they were in. My question is then, is the reverse true as well? In other words, now that my status has change to "Full-Time", is it safe to assume I'm in?

Thank you!

Pure speculation here, but since the FT program is harder to get in, it seems odd to me it would get changed to that and then you would get denied. If they are sure enough about your application to put you in a specific pile/program, it also probably means your decision is coming soon. If I were a betting man (and let's be honest, I am), I would bet you can generate a password Monday afternoon. Good luck!

fwiw, I think I read that the part time program is supposed to be getting more exlusive, as it is getting smaller and allowing less transfers to FT. I don't know what relevance that would have to deciphering the status checker.
