It is very common. There's nothing wrong with depositing one place and staying on the waitlist elsewhere.

Well technically I did not deposit, GULC waived my deposits in my scholarship. I just checked a box that said "I am please to accept Georgetown Law's scholarship and will be attending." That shouldn't make a difference though, right?

Right. According to ABA standards, Georgetown cannot force you to withdraw from any school that hasn't made an Accept/Reject decision yet.

I would put something to make sure they notice you. Like: "ME WANT MONEY, RESPOND PLZ"

Hello. I am sorry if this has been answered already, but I am so confused and desperate right now.
I had the country of citizenship updated for some time but didn't receive any news from the school. So I tried to get access to the admitted students site. I remember people saying that they were able to get id and password but also remember seeing that some people could not really get access to the site even though they were able to get id and password. I was able to get the id and password, and when I put them in, I could go into the site. Right now, I can see the NET ID information and other things. I am thrilled that I was able to get access to the site but also confused and worried if it really means that I am accepted. It would be very nice if anyone could give me an answer. Thank you so much!!

Don't worry. I called them twice to make sure. This is allowed. I even phrased it explicitly. Lady on the phone told me TWICE that it was completely fine not to withdraw and this was not binding.

You're probably in. There may have been an issue with the mail. You should call/email admissions and ask them if they've made a decision on your file. That's what I did and they told me a letter was in the mail (aka I was in.)

Do you think they will still be using regular mail for acceptances at this late date?

I've been following this page so I know what your talking about, but I meant more of in line with if they hadn't reached out to a candidate first. I never got any finalist emails or the such.

I got them to bump me from $60k to $90K, but that was only after Chicago gave me $45k. Even then I had to go back and forth with Russo about how committed I was to G-town.
