2/3-->2/7--> 2/22... i should be an auto rejection, so why are they rejecting people who have better stats than me beforehand?

Any idea how many people get this/my chances of getting in?


If you don't mind me asking when was your last update?

Reg'lur waitlist. Will take all of one hour to write and mail a LOCI, and zero effort to stay on the list, so might as well.

I was 2/22, but updated 3/8, with no word either way. It was at least my third complete date.

So, I received an email today. I am admitted off of the special group preferred waitlist. I was able to generate a password on the admitted students website but then when I went to log in it wouldn't let me. Has anyone else had this problem?

Congrats! When were you put on the waitlist if you don't mind my asking..

Good news that they've started dipping in to it before April, right?

ETA: Sorry I didn't really answer your question, but since it's the waiting thread this may be the wrong place to ask. I'd try here or here.

It takes a few days for your password to start working. You should be able to log in by Monday.

Thanks for the response, I'll check those out.

I applied in late January, received the waitlist email February 28th.

How long to they give you to decide whether to accept an offer of admission ? Do they give you until May?

Received around $28,000/year of need-based grants from Georgetown via email right now -- no word of a merit-scholarship though.

FYI--merit is not in addition to need. A merit-based scholarship notification tells you that the award "includes all need-based grants." So basically, in order for that number to go up, you'd have to get more than $28,000/yr in merit-based aid (probably not going to happen, given that GULC doesn't give out a ton of merit aid).

gotcha, thanks for the heads-up, $28,000 is still substantial though, right?

Err, technically that is a subjective question but its more than half tuition
