Anybody else get a solicited fee waiver yet? Mine came yesterday. I've heard great things about Georgetown and the DC area from many people.

First choice, hope it works out, sending out the ED to their PT program next week.

Just got a job offer working in the creative content department of the Discovery Channel D.C. office and would love to pursue both oppotunities

If I want to add in a short "why gtown" about my visit to the school, is there anywhere to put it or does it have to be forced in the ps? Thanks

I had a similar situation with Michigan. I just went to the optional response section, and--after attaching my optional essays--I used the "add another file" option to attach my addendum.

I don't think it really matters where or how you attach it since I don't believe they know what section you used; they just see the same thing you see when you preview the app. And even though they don't provide a space for it, I would think a GPA Why Georgetown addendum is perfectly acceptable.

It looks like last year preliminary RD decisions started in mid-October, but fwiw I think GULC's app didn't open until Oct 1. I guess that means if the pattern holds this year we might see some RD decisions as soon as early Oct.

So my status checker still just says "application received". Does this mean I am still not complete or since I have access to it that means I am? Sorry for the newb question.

Wow it's great seeing that drop in LSATs. What are people's thoughts on the chances of an ED that is around the 25th LSAT but above the 75th GPA?

Based on past cycles it doesn't look good at all for you - GULC doesn't seem to like reverse splitters at all. But who knows about this year; those are some serious drops.

If you're just interested in the T-14 Cornell is by far your best shot.

You definitely have a better chance then in years past and this year might even be a little worse as far as 170+ LSAT takers so that number could potentially drop. If Georgetown is your top choice then I think its worth it. What do you lose?

Does anyone know why an application for the Public Interest Law Scholars Program requires an additional LOR sent directly to the decision committee? I'm not understanding why they wouldn't want the LOR that speaks to your public interest commitment to just be sent through LSAC, like every other school does.

Noticed that my current status date updated today (originally 9/25). Hopefully we'll see the first decisions in a few weeks?
