No one's reported it, but Andy and Sophia both used the word "primarily" in their email:

"we were able to make very few offers of admission to our waiting list candidates, primarily to the part-time program"

Sounds like they let a few people in after the review... Just none of us... I guess the wave of admits really did go out last Friday. :cry:


I read it the same way, though interested to see how Mania^^ does today. GL.

Thanks Perch. I don't know what to think. My natural pessimism still reigns supreme.

Got the same email from Andy. Guess I'm still in the running too. Definitely not going to get my hopes up this time around. Good luck everybody!

This is my first draft.. I will be sending it sometime tonight but wanted to get some TLS input first

Dear Sir or Madam:

I would like to reiterate my continued interest in attending Gerogetown Law. Unfortunately, I am not part of “the small group to whom you will turn” should a spot open up. I want to be in that group very badly!

Many joke about their willingness to cut off limbs for the opportunity to attend Georgetown University’s Law Center. Honestly, I won’t do be doing that because I like having all of my limbs. However, I will do almost anything short of dismembering myself for an offer of admission in return.

“Please be advised that if spaces do open up in the class, one of the important factors in the Committee's consideration at this point is your interest in committing to Georgetown.” If this does not show interest, I am not sure what does. Thanks for your time and consideration.

My post was definitely not clear enough. I was PWL'ed at the end of march, received the "small group" email last monday, and just now received the suggestive email.

And thanks hipster!

So it sounds like you weren't accepted at all, right? You just got the slightly suggestive email?

LOL. Nah, sounds like he got the "Good news is on the way, welcome to the ultra selective group that gets to enroll" email.

Georgetown's official policy is not to give admission decisions via email. Soooo... They send an extreamly suggestive hint via email while your admissions package is in the mail.

Be a little mature, I mean was it suggestive in whether or not you'd get an offer of admission, or suggestive like you ARE admitted but you might also get a scholarship, etc. What was the suggestive part about?
