Welcome to the SPWL! Based off this, and last yr's cycle, it seems to contain mostly YP and some splitters...YP candida
tes seem to have gotten in off the list pretty quickly with LOCI, the rest of us are still waiting with tempered optimism (or maybe i just speak for myself...).



I'm a splitter on the SPWL. Have you noticed anything about last year's cycle? Did most of the SPWL candidates get admitted? I have no more fingernails.


Link to last yrs WL cycle is on the first page of this thread....i read thru most of it. The first few years they started using the SPWL, they ended up accepting nearly everyone off the list. Last year's cycle seemed to leave quite a few people hanging, eventually rejected.

They also seem to have favored splitters with LSATs at or above 170...which is a bummer for me.

Either way, tho, totally depends on how many apps they've received, and the number of deposits, obvs.

I'm also running out of ways to kill time while quelling anxiety over this. Maybe I'll just take up smoking.

did they update your status checker during that time?



If so, did you get the USA update?

And has anybody gotten a status update on the weekend?


I believe I had multiple updates with the last one coming on 3/12. I am not a US Citizen, so my status has always had my country of Citizenship on there. I do believe that at some point, I had an address expansion at the top of the page.

I also have been updated 4 times beginning 3/12.

I'm beginning to think my address was always "expanded" though, since I haven't gotten a USA yet and I wrote my full address (no abbreviations) on my application.

I just lately joined this forum, but back near the end of February I was placed in the special-group-preferred etc. (If it matters, I sent in my application in mid-February...).

I immediately sent a brief response to Ms Spada, to which she replied within a day or two. But last week I sent in a more detailed LOCI and have yet to hear/read back from her. Ought I to send another email, asking if she/they received my LOCI and to place it in my file?

One update - interview two weeks ago - no activity. Can I send an LOCI?

I'd say that it's a good thing if you are on the waitlist!

I guess I am the last applicant for 2015 contest: Applied 19 days after the deadline. Good luck to all who are still in the race, congrats to all who crossed the finish line, successfully. :)

It's been extremely quiet in this thread as of late, must be the calm before the storm. I feel like a wave of rejection is going to wash over the masses tomorrow.

Good luck to all! Updated twice last week and twice in a row tuesday, and wednesday this week. Looking like tomorrow is the day I'll meet my fate. Hopefully I'm wrong!

Updated yesterday. 2/21 ---> 3/21 no USA... :(

Here's hoping. I visited the law school last year and loved it.

I spoke with Admissions the other day and was told that email was better because it allows them to put materials in your file faster. Apparently snail mail is especially slow for them.

Interviewed Tuesday (the best interview I've ever had, honestly)
Updated later that evening, then another update Wednesday.

My interviewer said Georgetown asked her to meet w/me and submit her assessment before the 23rd (today). She said she was submitting it right after the meeting on Tuesday. I assume that means something is going to happen on or shortly after today....

She also said she's recommending me for admission, and that I'll love it there. I said I hope they accept me, and she indicated they will. So I'm curious, how much pull does the interviewer actually have? Or was she just getting carried away in the moment?

My interviewer said something similar, though less explicitly (told me which section I should sign up for, that he'd give me advice on professors, things like that).

w-w-w-w-w-waitlist.

EDIT: but I am sure that is just because of my application's other failings and is the odd case. :D Good luck!
