Also admitted today via snail mail! Dean Cornblatt wrote a kind, personalized note. I was so happy I cried. Literally.

Submitted 10/25, Complete 10/28, Updated 10/31 and 11/14. Letter was dated 11/14.

Has anyone's status changed to "decision made" or anything like that? They say on their site that the status checker allows you to determine when your app is complete and when a decision is made, but I'm not sure if that's true. Went complete 10/25 and stuck on 11/7 now, with nothing in the mail. Frustrated!

Just wondering if anyone knows when PT acceptances/denials usually are released? Do they coincide with FT? or later?

I think that everyone's status just reads "Application Completed" until they get the decision letter in the mail. I don't think the status checker changes to reflect when mailings are sent. At least, it doesn't change AFAIK.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes! Very excited about my first acceptance of the cycle! Hopefully everyone who hasn't heard will be getting good news from Georgetown soon.

I'm also curious about PT applicants. Has anyone gotten a decision for that program? I'm personally stuck on 10/11. I got a group interview request following that (which didn't update my status) and no updates since. I'm hoping the delay has more to do with the different program as opposed to simple lack of interest. Thanks for any insight and congrats to those who've been accepted!

Application completed 11/16. Didn't get an interview request.

I really, really hope good news is coming. My numbers are above both medians but I only have 3 graded semesters. I put my abroad address as my current and permanent address because I was unsure of how long it would take, so I guess I'll have to wait for like an extra week.

For all PT applicants: where is your status checker currently stuck at?

International applicant (UK). In via post today.

Sent 26/10, with various completed dates ending in 14/11.

Does anyone know when scholarship information comes out?

Small envelope with a really nice handwritten note from Dean Cornblatt.


I'll second the nice handwritten note. He actually referenced something I wrote in one of my optional essays. That impressed me.

So if I submitted 11/12 and the only update I have had is Application Completed 11/16, will it update again? Or is that it and I just am waiting?

I submitted 10/22, complete 10/24, updated 11/4 and then again 11/14. Not sure what this means or if I should be expecting anything.

if you applied for both PT and FT, what does the status checker say? i originally applied FT, then asked it to be amended to include both programs, but my status checker only says FT.

It hasn't happened yet, but I'm going to be out of state when it does unfortunately. I told them and they sent a reply saying it wouldn't put me at a disadvantage. I guess the invite is better than hearing nothing. I'm probably borderline, which makes me very antsy for a decision!

It's weird how the last four days I've literally gotten NO MAIL, from anywhere. No spam, bills, letters, or anything. Maybe a sign? :oops:

That's happened to me too. I know for a fact that at my old apartment, the mail man just didn't come some days. He usually took off on Tuesdays. I imagine he was like hanging out at a coffee shop or something instead and rationalized that people could wait until the next day for their mail. At least, that is what I would be tempted to do. But 4 days is a long time.

Just got my acceptance letter!!! First acceptance for me this cycle. I've posted this a bunch already in this topic, but my numbers are 171/3.53, weak/average softs (I think I had a good personal statement but nothing else great), and my status checker dates were 11/10 and 11/14 and I didn't get an interview request email. Oh, and I submitted 10/28 and went complete on 10/31.
