From what Dean Cornblatt told us in my group interview is that an interview is neither necessary for admission nor random. The people he interviews are not auto-rejects or auto-admits. Also, just because you were not interviewed does not mean you were either an auto-reject or an auto-admit. So, although the interviews are not actually random, you might as well treat them as if they were.


Yeah I'm sweating bullets because I'm not an auto either way and sitting at complete since 1/28. Though a friend who applied two weeks later was WL'ed two weeks ago, so I guess I'd be out by now if they really didn't want me. Who knows. I just want a decision before my spring break.

Just wrote my LOCI and will be sticking it into the mail tomorrow. GULC would be an absolute DREAM so Im going to ride this WL until the wheels fall off. My chances of getting off are slim, but Im going to do everything I can to tip the scales in my favor.

Dinged as well after a lot of waiting.

I applied in November and group interviewed in January.

Good luck

I wish I could have been selected for an interview. It would have been nice to have that added part of my application.

I did update today right before the ding. Assume others did too.

I was updated to 3/14 and no email as of 3:41 central. Here's hoping, I'm really nervous.

Updated today 3/1->3/14. Had an interview on Friday, so I'm guessing that's the update. Wonder when I'll get a decision.

Condolences, you guys, rejections sting. I'm sure you'll find a school for you. The rest of you, the ding emails should be a case study in "no news is good news." Seriously-you're still in it to win it.

Georgetown is so awful with status checker maintenance that, if you've been complete for a month you can safely assume you're in review.

I believe someone else said that if you don't hear by 5:00 EST then you are safe for that day but dont quote me on that.

Still 2/3 too...


My theory is that we're all borderline applicants somehow. They want to wait until their extra apps come in (deadline extended according to their website) and evaluate us against the new applicants with (presumably) Feb lsat scores.

I'm a splitter so that could fit.

I dunno about that. My numbers suck and I am not a splitter. I wish they would just pull the bandaid off already. The wait is killing me!
