complete 10/31 (approximately), 11/16 w/ interview request, 11/23 (day after interview), 11/30.

packet in the mail maybe?

also, does anyone know about how long it would take a packet to get from gtown and the west coast?


3-5 days..........the delay is in D.C., not the west coast........ so, I figure that, your 11/23 incorporated your interviewer's report, and now, followed by today's decision noted as 11/30. Assuming de3cision made, then, if your're brave enough, check your status checker....... if it doesn't say your WL, then YOUR ARE IN !!!!
sO, DECISION MADE 11/30, PUT IN THE MAIL 12/1, ADD 3 DAYS AND YOU SHOULD EXPECT ACCEPTANCE NEXT tUESDAY.

Since I'm awaiting my next update (after interviewer update), can you PM once you get your acceptance?? Thanks.


So you think that, if they did in fact make a decision today, that I'm accepted if it doesn't say waitlisted? I looked at my status checker, and it doesn't say waitlisted, it says "Application Completed" still. GOD I HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT! After my interview, I am really excited about Georgetown,

ETA: And yes, I'll be sure to PM you when I get a decision (hopefully acceptance).

I'm a little confused now that I've had time to think about my interview. Originally I had thought the interview was a way for them to distinguish between on the fence candidates. However, based on the informality of my interview today and my interviewers comments, it seems like it doesn't really mean diddly. I mean, he asked me very few specific questions and we kinda just had a casual conversation. At first I was really pleased with how it went, but now I'm thinking that for a candidate like me it's them trying to decide if they're gonna waitlist me or just straight up ding me.

I emailed the woman from the office (Lindsey Lankford) back but haven't received any notice either from her or from a potential interviewer in my area.

I understand what the interview means (that I'm borderline and they need more info to decide), I'm just wondering if I should be worried that I haven't heard back or if I'm just being neurotic.


yes and my interviewer contacted me this morning to set it up. seems like a cool guy. i'm very excited.

Adding to this, I didn't get any sort of confirmation from the admissions office once I agreed to the interview, and my interviewer didn't contact me until several weeks after.

I'm in!

Received snail mail today. My status checker has said complete since 11/21. I applied 11/4 RD.

The letter came in a small envelope with very little information. Good luck to all.

Frustrating! I'd like to do the interview before Christmas so my decision will come faster!! What do you think is an acceptable length of time to wait before sending a follow up email? I'm just nervous because I've had terrible experiences with scheduling my Vandy alumni interview (he cancelled literally 10 minutes before the appointment, waited 3 weeks to email me back after that, and then hasn't replied to my email since then. I've been trying to schedule this for almost 2 months now!!! :evil: ).

What would make you draw that conclusion? Isn't it just as likely that they are highly interested and just wanted to make sure you weren't completely socially deficient or otherwise undesirable in a way that doesn't reveal itself through written applications? I mean they already have all the hard information.

my numbers just seem a bit low for them to let me in without going to WL first. i really hope you're right, a g'town acceptance would make my year. (and i always appreciate an optimist!) :mrgreen:

I think this is more it. My interviewer said that they send a report to Gulc describing the candidate and that was it.

I think mine came late in the third week. Honestly, I think the better path in this sort of thing is to give them as much time as possible so you're not that kid who won't stop bugging the admissions office.

If you think about it, the interviewer is probably an extremely busy lawyer who took time out of their schedule to talk to a potential admit. They are volunteers. I highly doubt they want to grill young kids for sport. More likely, they just want to take a quick break from their daily grind, feel like they are giving back to the school, and have a nice chat.

I wouldn't be worried!

anybody ever wonder if the interviews are not so much for the admissions as it is for making alumnus (school donors as well as job dispensaries) feel as if they are part of the recruiting and admissions process, ergo feeling more attached and compelled to continue supporting the school through donations and connections for graduating students? just a little conspiracy theory based on the unending reports of useless interviews.

And also to get us interested in the school. I am way more excited about Georgetown and Northwestern after talking to alumni. They made the schools more real in my mind.

I'm in NYC, but I also looked up the delivery time from DC to NYC and it was 2 - 7 days. So I'm sure a lot of other East Coast deliveries will come tomorrow and Friday as well. My last complete was 11/21 though, but letter mailed 11/28-- maybe they are combining the two groups?
