How did the interview go? Any curveballs other than Why LS/GULC?


My interviewer was very relaxed. It felt more like a conversation than an interview. So long as you can articulate why you want to go to law school and why you'd like to attend Georgetown, I wouldn't worry.

No, he asked me those two questions, then asked me point by point about each thing on my resume, and what other schools I was applying to. He also asked if I had any questions for him, and he told me about georgetown and why he liked it.

Congratulations! Looks like all the fretting between you, Miamioxford, and I paid off. Was this your first acceptance? How did you find out at so odd an hour?

Again, congrats. You give hope to 167's.

Thanks everyone! I found out at such a special hour because I don't live in America... Yes... Now I'm revealing myself if anyone reads but 167s have faith! Some people on TLS told me to not even bother because I had a much higher score in practice and I messed up on the real deal (I had to cancel and wasn't allowed to take again since I took once before.) I was going to wait out this year and try again on the LSAT and apply for 2013 but I figured I'd just apply this cycle and see what happens. I really want to go in 2012 so I put a fair amount of effort into my applications. Don't lose hope!

Edit: Yes, this is my first acceptance and the first decision I've heard from a school. I applied to most schools towards the end of October.

It was so nice. I had a handwritten note from the Dean. I screamed when I got the letter and scared some man delivering chicken nearby.

Not only am I ecstatic for you, but now I plan to roam the world finding this enigmatic, Chicken delivery man. Truly you give hope to all. Did your status update after 11/14?

As someone with a very similar LSAT score who updated 11/21, I am starting to feel very very hopefull :)

Congrats!

I'm hoping with the sttus update on 11/21, the address update, and the program change that my acceptance is in the mail :D w/e it's almost Thanksgiving and I am in an optimitic mood

I am checking my mailbox every 5 min... I probably shouldn't though since it's been only 2 days after the last update..

Still nothing. I really hope it comes today.

I don't know how I'm going to survive when I start waiting for the schools that are actually my top choices :(

The fact that they offered you an interview should give you confidence enough that they want you. I'd kill for one.

I feel like all my apps are starting to move at once -_-, don't know if I'm happy or a bit petrified at the idea, but I've already submitted now so I guess it's time to wait for the verdicts.


first complete 11/16, and I just noticed that the date updated to 11/22? I am hoping the decision is in the mail.

Complete status updated to 11/23. Is the general consensus that I should be getting something in the mail (presuming I've been admitted?).

3rd "Completed" was 11/21. Nothing in the mail today, so I guess I'm waiting until Black Friday.

Yeah, thats wrong also. BTW, who are you 'quoting'.
