Good luck! Hopefully the fact that they're letting in WL people this early bodes well for the rest of you. :)


Congrats! Preferred or special preferred?

for those of you getting off the waitlist, is there a time limit for when you have to decide, or is it just the may deposit deadline?

Just wanted to tag this thread as I'm also part of the special preferred list and am interested in seeing what happens.

FlanAl wrote:I'd say its YP, just because you're in the middle on LSP doesn't mean all that much. Also since there are what like 20% less applicants this year all the schools know their numbers are going down so I think a lot of them are trying to YP to make sure their yield rate is still solid.

Full disclosure: rationalizing for my placement on the "special group"


It's the rumor going around this season; I read it on an application consultant's website. The season isn't over yet, but generally, when employment markets pick up (and they've been trending that way lately from the rock bottom a couple years ago) the applicant pool goes down. When it goes down, schools take action later because they don't want to start building their class without a sense of whether they're getting the cream of the crop--they don't want to get hosed. That said, school specific data is not available to us, so we have no idea what this means for Georgetown. It's a T-14, so there's a strong chance it won't follow the general trend.

Regular WL prole checking in. Not going to hold my breath, but since it costs very little in the way of time and nothing in the way of $$ will be riding this out. Sending my LOCI soon, and then forgetting about it.

I found out by e-mail first and the e-mail said a letter was on the way. They said they don't normally send e-mails, but the last ASD was this coming weekend. My status updated twice after my original wailtlist.

Damn it, no updates yet on mine... same old 2/18.

Congrats though!
