Applied 10/25, went complete on the 26th or 27th. My status changed from Application Complete to Application Complete on the 14th. Maybe (Hopefully) I'll have something before Thanksgiving.


Same!!! Let's cross our fingers... If you get an acceptance it will be probably about a week before me, if I have one coming... I live abroad so I have to wait longer... :[

That's great news! If you don't mind me asking, what other questions did she ask u?

TBH I don't really remember any of the other questions--strange since the interview lasted ~1 hour. Why Georgetown/Law started the conversation but the interview definitely wasn't scripted. It felt more like just a normal conversation where she was introducing Georgetown to me and I was introducing myself to her as an alumna. The remaining questions all were just a continuation of whatever we happened to be talking about at the end of the last question. It was a really pleasant experience... if other Georgetown interviews are like this, you shouldn't be worried at all.

Also, FWIW she was surprised at how early in the cycle this was to be doing interviews (so don't get the typical TLS OCD quite yet). She said she has been doing interviews for a couple of cycles now and that, typically, an application has to jump through some hurdles to get an interview. I felt like the purpose of the interview was similar to NU's interview--they just want to make sure you're not socially inept to the point where you'll screw up at OCI.

will do. i hope they can get me scheduled sooner rather than later. they said the process could take a couple weeks and that it wouldn't be an impairment to gaining acceptance if it did take that long. with rolling admissions i just don't see how that's possible though.

Don't wanna jinx anyone but is there any chance they will just accept Campagnolo, emcoast32, take two, and me , similar to the amazing 'tom in ohio'?? with no interview. Or maybe I am reading into the status changes /dates a little too much and being overly optimistic

I really wish they sent emails and not just snail mail. If you guys get an acceptance next week, with similar dates as me, I will be freaking out since I will be visiting family on the east coast all week, in DC ironically :?

I was admitted without an interview. Submitted 10/25, got the in the mail letter 11/7.

I doubt that there are a lot of Georgetown JDs in my area to interview, though.

out of town all next week as well. any acceptances sans interview would sure make me feel better. or, at least, slightly less paranoid.

Someone said that they can interview you via skype if necessary, so that doesn't matter.

intuition would lead one to believe that interviews are for borderline candidates. if your stats are above/at both medians, you're probably not gonna need an interview to get in

Haven't the interviews in the past/this year gone to mostly borderline candidates? I really don't think it is a bad sign not to get one....

I was also admitted without one, and I'm in a good-sized city. My GPA was quite a bit below their median too.

I received an invite to interview. But by looking at lsn graphs it looks like I have a good chance to get admitted.

Congrats. Yeah I am in a big city where I am sure there are GULC alums... but it would be nice to A) be accepted and B) just get accepted now instead of waiting for the interview process. My gpa is pretty far above 75%, but LSAT is 169 (median is 170).

We have almost identical stats. Have you looked at the LSN graph for this year? Very encouraging news for 169's & high GPAs.

I did an interview a few weeks back and can say that mine was very laid back and enjoyable.
