Is USA showing up in country of citizenship still a confirmation of admission? I did a quick search and saw a few mentions, but want to make sure that is still the case, before I tell my friend he definitely just got in.
sure. any tips on getting off the waitlist? goes GT like or not like updates?
I was actually on the regular waitlist until mid-July so I can actually provide some potentially useful advice in this area. I believe that updates are generally a good thing, but I would also write a very GULC specific letter. I sent LOCI after each waitlist update reiterating my intention to attend if admitted, and giving GULC an update on additional things I had done. These were always answered with a form email.
I'm from the area and sent a longer LOCI reiterating my desire to attend AND how GULC would fit into my long term plans to stay near family and be able to practice in DC. I received a more detailed response to that message, saying that admissions would make a special note of my desire to be in the DC area. While I know that approach isn't possible for everyone, I think an LOCI that sells how GULC is the perfect fit for you as opposed to just selling yourself to GULC would be very useful.
