The e-mail they sent out said business casual. I attended one earlier and wore a shirt and tie, the other five guys I saw did the same. I would say a jacket would be a bit much.

Good luck though! Some interesting facts Dean Cornblatt said that he is planning on interviewing 1000 applicants in group interviews this year (in comparison to 700 last year), and that the group interview acceptance rate is higher than the average applicant.

I also heard from a friend in the admissions office that Georgetown has not seen a decrease in admissions numbers this year, for what it's worth.

This is of interest to me. Maybe we could look in last year's thread?

News about $$$ doesn't come out until February.

What do you mean by admissions numbers? The number of applicants or Georgetown's medians?

So the rule is three completes (i.e. date changes) after the group interview?

Just wondering.

Yeah, I think a TLSer named Elle tried it a few years back. It got her into Harvard.


I just realized what you're referring to!!

Awesome. :o)

What is the consensus on being invited to a group interview vs individual?

Is there a trend either way?

Got an email yesterday about interviewing. I assume I won't hear from the interviewer until after the holidays. How badly will this hurt my chances, since it will certainly delay the application review?

If they tweak your address on your third update, that means you are getting an acceptance letter, right?

NO ONE TELL ME OTHERWISE

Sorry, I was trolling to add a little levity. I giggle every time someone asks if you could get dinged via phone call or via FedEx overnight package...thought I'd take it to the logical extreme.


Will they give me a stipend to defray my travel expenses for DSW?

It seems that merit scholarship offers started coming out around March 1st... and only a handful at that. :?

I'm envisioning a giggling Dean Cornblatt torturing applicants via acceptance letters on the end of a fishing rod, then rejecting them after a few tries.

Is ~10+ days an unusual amount of time to wait to hear back about an alumni interview? Got my third update a while back and it was followed by an interview request (which I obviously said yes to) but I haven't heard a thing since.

Does this warrant a follow-up email or phone call or is this normal?

That is about how long it took for me, and my interviewer contacted me the day that he heard from Georgetown.
