I did. It's really nothing you can prepare for, and I wouldn't be nervous for it. Other than briefly introducing ourselves at the beginning (name, undergrad, job if not in school) there weren't any questions about me, no "Why Georgetown?," etc. The questions were all hypothetical situations we were asked to consider and either respond to on our own or work through as a group.

Also, it may not matter in the end. The school sent my letter of admission the day before my scheduled group interview.

IN!!

Submitted 11/8, last update 12/3. No interview.
I liked the personal touches on the letter, though I'm glad I was warned about the small envelope!

Thanks both of you. It does sound pretty straightforward. It sucks that it might not actually matter. :evil:

I've been wondering the same thing, and since no one has answered I'll share my guess: Since it says on the status checker pages for most schools to contact them if you want to update your address, they're probably using the address/phone number listed on your status checker page.


It's current address

Submitted 11/14, update and interview email 11/30. Just did the interview this morning with a friendly alum who's a partner at a big firm in my town. He was nice. We chatted about my résumé and the only question he asked me was why I want to go to Georgetown.

Hoping to possibly hear something by Christmas. That's possible, right? Gtown's supposed to be quick-ish after the interview, I've heard.

I've looked back a few pages and can't seem to find anything on this: is the ASW live yet? And has anyone received any scholarship information

This has been answered almost every page it seems. The answers are no and no.

Thanks! I just ctrl+f'd "ASW" and scholarship terms on a few pages and didn't happen to see anything aside from questions. Sorry 'bout that.

No biggie. I'm also interested in hearing about scholarships. Seems as far as the website goes they are just lagging this year for some reason.

My LSAC alert just showed a change in status, reading "Due to the volume of our correspondence with applicants, Georgetown is unable to post mailing details and update the requirement list."
Does this mean that they've mailed me something?
Oh I'm hoping for a hannuka miracle!

I got the same message. My guess is they just had a ton of people asking if anything had been mailed for them.

Thanks for the quick response! I will now return to my regularly scheduled program of phantom e-mail checking. :)

Did anyone who has an interview go complete after then nothing?? I'm sure I'm just paranoid, but everything moved so fast up to the interview...

I had 2 updates since my interview that happened pretty quickly. The second update was 11/21.
I am below 25th LSAT and above 75th GPA. I am hoping they are just waiting for December scores and not just waiting to reject me.

I just got held. I hadn't had an update since 11/30.

Guess I'm not getting an interview...

Did you apply ED? Was the hold through email or mail?

Also, sorry about that.
