Rendered App Complete & sent to the committee 1/12. Gah! Hope to hear back soon! Waitlisted at GM, so crossing my fingers. Bummer to not have heard back after the Facebook status :-/.

PT, complete since mid-December. Updated on 1/12. Still nothing and I'm doubly impatient because it's the only place that is stopping me from making a final decision. Hopefully early next week!

Ditto, submitted right before Thanksgiving and admitted 12/19. I have a 157/3.47, and softs specific to AU (worked in congress for a year, work for a mid-sized established firm in Maryland).

I am anxious to see scholarship awards. I was going to apply for PIPS (I have an interest in regulation, I.E. securities, thrift, or consumer litigation prosecuted by government regulators), but read that PIPS was for FT only. Then we got that email about scholarship opportunities and it listed PIPS for PT'rs. I stayed up really late after work to pull an application together and the next day we got that email saying they made a mistake and PIPS was for FT only. Oh well, things like that happen sometimes, hahaha.

At least you could go to grad school now. Weird though, for some reason I thought the application was looked at by the law school first, then sent to the grad school.

Yeah. Not worried about it though. I shouldn't have a problem getting in, it just would've been nice to know both at the same time!

You're right, you shouldn't have a problem at all. Are you considering it? I saw that you got some good acceptances in your bag already.

I'm definitely considering it. Being in DC (i'm a pub policy undergrad as well) is a huge plus for me, but money is going to play a large role for me. As far as dual degrees go, UGA also has a great MPP program which I can apply for after the first year of law school, but I'm not actually 100% set on a dual degree so who knows. Does anyone know how financial aid works for dual degree programs at American?

Gotcha. My only fear is that it will somehow restrict me to careers in Washington.

Good question (about financial aid for dual degrees). I've been asking asking around, but haven't found any answers yet.

Am I the only one that's been complete since 12/15 and still hasn't heard anything? I applied at the end of October :-(
