Have any other international applicants done an in-person alumni interview?


I'm an international applicant, and Georgetown couldn't find any alumni in my area, so they arranged a Skype one.

Hey is the "country of citizenship" section in your status checker filled out? I'm an international applicant too. I can't quite remember whether it was there from the start, and am getting a little too blindly optimistic now that I notice it's there.

Yessss, congrats to you! How much do you think GLS should weigh in deciding between GULC and other higher ranked schools?

Congrats to you too!

I'm not quite sure how much of a difference it will make for me. I also got into the JD / LLM Paris program at Cornell so I'm still thinking about that ... I'm really looking for a strong international focus so that rules out most of the other offers I have so far. How about you? What other schools are you thinking about?

Thanks for letting me know! I'm not sure if the filled out "country of citizenship" is as significant for internationals as it is for Americans. I'll keep you updated if I do get something in the mail.

Would be grateful is other internationals could weigh in on the country of citizenship section in their status checker too. Thanks!

I did some reading up and I think the group interview seems to be more about YP while the alumni interview is more for borderline candidates.

This got me abit worried about my app in general since my cycle has been pretty bad thus far. But I think after looking at everyone's stats we all seem to be splitters with ~3.5 GPA's and 170+ LSAT's.

Interested in other's thoughts on this. Would it be reasonable to infer we are borderline primarily because of our splitter status?


I don't think anyone with 170+ or 3.5+ is borderline for Georgetown considering no one with those stats on LSN is rejected, only a handful WL'd. I think it's more about gauging our interest in the school.

I wonder if you get PILS if that 1/3 scholarship is on top or or instead of other merit awards? I am guessing you would not get both, but that is just a hunch.

I figured it was more of a YP-type situation, especially because earlier ITT it sounded like many of the alumni interviews served for the alumni to try to convince the interviewee to go to GLUC. I could definitely be wrong though.

Either way, I'm going to do some serious prep.

I just received my acceptance letter (very unexpected tbh) today. I can confirm the rumors regarding address formatting and citizenship are still accurate.

Has anyone responded to the merit scholarship e-mail by demanding to pay full price?

I had one on 3/1 and 3/4, both obviously after my interview which was in mid-Feb.
