I was actually just noticing this as well. Alright then.

You hit the nail on the head. People in the special group legitimately do have a great chance of actually getting accepted.

People on the preferred list are unranked. However, the they're still likely to get pulled along the lines of the type of candidate that Georgetown is looking for (i.e. if a minority drops, Georgetown will extend the bid to a minority from the PWL. If a public service devotee drops, they'll pull a public service devotee from the list. So on and so forth the pattern continues).

In terms of the regular waiting list... from what I know a couple people do get off of it, but they presumably are given slightly less consideration than the preferred and special groups are.

Don't quote me on this though. I'm just letting you know what I've come to understand from my own queries and glances at past years.

"in a special group", no idea of how special we are, though.

I was put in the special group and 2 weeks later was able to access the ASW, though I haven't yet received any physical confirmation of acceptance. Seems to be fairly special.

The personalized acceptance note gave me warm fuzzies. picking a school is going to be SO DIFFICULT.

Thank you for the input!
Congrats! The acceptance email can be much slower than that. Your numbers are great, esp the GPA.
Did you send a LOCI ? Wonder if they will auto get someone off that list.

I was put in the special group and it's been more than a month and a half since I've sent in a LOCI...no word. I really don't know what it means to be 'special' waitlisted. It seems all the same waitlist to me... *trying not to be pessimistic*

Same here. Been on since mid January, no updates since 1/20. Sent a gushing LOCI.

Still hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

Looking at last years LSN, people who received merit scholarships were mostly 170+ and had also had good GPA's.
