Is everyone who has been invited actually doing the interview? Does it look bad if you decline?

at this risk of sounding like a complete idiot, what I am getting from this thread is that GULC does do interviews but you have to be invited. is that correct?

Yes.


And to the other poster, I can't imagine it looks good to turn them down for an interview.

It says in the email that they strongly recommend you do it. Well in the attached doc.

Do people getting the interview requests all have certain status dates or something? I didn't get one, and my date is 11/14.

Yeah. As soon as I got an interview request email, I checked my status and it had updated from 10/31 to 11/16.

Just responded and accepted the interview request. The way I see it, there's nothing to lose and there's, at the very least, a good experience to be gained.

There was a thread on Georgetown Law Interviews on TLS:
http://www.top-law-schools.com/archives ... 2&start=50

Granted, it was from 2-3 years ago, but I think some of the points in that thread are relevant today. Specifically, someone posted this:

This information was distributed directly from Georgetown:

Admissions Decisions for Interviewed Applicants for 2008:
39% put on Preferred Waitlist
37% Admitted
7% Denied
17% General Waitlist

According to a GULC alum and close friend, interviews are for borderline candidates about whom they want more information (she said she had an admissions interview and learned this after she was admitted). It's much better than getting auto-waitlisted or auto-rejected, though, and it is a good opportunity to show a side of yourself that might not come through in the application. Don't lose hope!

I'm a SUPER splitter and I'm worried that because I didn't get an interview, I'm an auto-reject.
