Just got an email saying I'm being considered for a merit-based scholarship!
Does anyone know how they are with money??

Same here... I'm not sure how to approach replying to this:

"We know it’s early, but we are interested in knowing such things as where Georgetown fits into your thinking and what level of funding would make a difference in your decision."

I'm wondering about this too. At this point I'm pretty sure I won't be attending, but I guess a hefty scholarship could change my mind, so maybe it's worth saying that? That just seems like an awkward thing to ask us...

Edit- Btw taikfox, we have exactly the same stats, I'll be curious where you end up!

I have been complete since 12/13 and have had no updates or anything since then.....

I don't really expect to get in but I haven't heard anything at all yet. Do I need to send a LOCI? I've only seen a few people post that they have not seen activity; so is this not common?

I intend on being pretty straight up and telling them it will take a boat load of money to get me to gtown (albeit in nicer terms).

Yeah, I've been complete since 12/19 and have been debating the same thing...no interview request either...accepted so far at the schools below, so i'm hoping georgetown will be the next acceptance!

Hey- does anyone know what has been happening for those who were accepted? Meaning, when people have been able to generate a UN/PW for ASW before getting acceptance letters, did the status checker still show complete or did it update first to say a decision had been made?

Thanks!

yup! it scared me because the e-mail started off with "Thank you for your interest in Georgetown Law" and i thought it was a rejection but it was just them confirming that it had been put into my file

I could generate the PW 4 days before being able to log in. I then received something in the mail 4 days or so after that. Status checker is still on "complete".

Hey guys,

I'm sure this has been asked numerous times, but I was just invited to do an interview. Any specific questions I should prep for? Thanks so much! :]

You should definitely know the answer to "why georgetown." Beyond that, just enjoy a nice conversation with a successful gtown alumnus/a.

Do all applicants get invitations for interviews? If no, what percent do?

I also went complete for the third time today, and I think my change dates are very similar to yours, but don't really remember! I don't know what it means, but hopefully it means that a decision will be reached soon. Georgetown is a reach for me, but I'm still hopeful! I applied ED first week of January. Is it true that they promise a decision within 3 weeks for ED apps? I didn't know that until I read it on here somewhere... but if so, it has been over three weeks.
