I submitted an ED app 11/1. It took a while to go complete, but it finally did 11/8. It then updated 11/9 and again 11/12. I hope the whole "three updates" theory is true, although this seems way too soon for a decision to have been made.

Congratulations to everyone who's gotten in! I hope to be as fortunate, because Georgetown is AWESOME.

If it's true, which I hope it is, you'll have one more update to go. The day of complete doesn't count :|

Ahh, OK, that makes more sense. Thanks for the clarification. :shock:

Explanation as to what this is? Please and thank you.

Also, do we know if ASW includes scholarships? Or will this come in a future package? (Another please and thank you)

No. I clicked on the link and it is not up yet. The email said late November, so I guess we shall all wait until then.

I received the student ambassador email as well. I would expect the ASW after Thanksgiving. I am hoping it is heavy on good info and light on propaganda. I expect to be disappointed...

Fellow ED here. For me the three updates held true, including the first complete. Other people have had 4 so I guess it just depends but I wouldn't expect to find out much before your 3 week deadline. Good luck to you, hopefully I will be seeing you next year!

Finally got an acceptance in the mail today. Letter post-marked 11/5- final complete data was 11/2- had an interview the week before 11/2, with an additional update on 11/1 (likely reception of the interviewer's comments, although tough to say with hurricane Sandy)

Excuse me if I'm late on the train here. But, the only way to find out if you're accepted is via snail mail? You can't find out on the status checker?

Correct. There are cases of them emailing/calling international applicants, or applicants who otherwise have no reasonable mail address.

Just had my second update. Has the decision after the 3rd update included the original complete status?

Congrats! At some point does your status checker switch to "decision rendered" or something of the sort? Or does it remain as "application completed"?

Thanks for the tip! There's an inordinate number of GULC-hating trolls on these forums, so I'm glad to hear from someone else who loved it enough to ED. (Congratulations, by the way! Must be nice.)

Does GULC typically email recommenders to thank them for their input? My old boss just forwarded me such an email from the dean of admissions. It was a very nice but likely generic email but I thought a really nice touch. Just wondering if every applicant & recommender gets one.

Yeah, there definitely is. It's overblown, mostly resting on their big law placement which just gets hurt because of the class size and the fact that there is a large portion of the class that goes there just for access to Federal jobs and PI, not even considering big law. Even with that their Big Law placement is on par with other low T-14's. Also, who wouldn't want to spend 3 years in DC!

Gahhhh ditto. updates 10/31, 11/6 and 11/12.


I was 10/31, 11/7 and 11/12. I think there was only one instance of letters taking an obscenely long time to arrive after the third update. Does anyone know what form a rejection or WL might take?


Hmmm I haven't been tracking but I think I probably have the same dates. I got my status check email on 10/22, so I'm guessing I went complete around the same time. Status checker now updated as of 11/12. Hope we hear back soooon!



I had the same updates plus an alumnus interview in the middle. What are your guys' numbers? I'm a 167/3.83. Hoping we all get good news soon.

FINALLY got another status update after a long wait:

Submitted on 9/20, Complete on 9/21, 10/24, did an interview on 11/1 and then again a complete on 11/14. Hopefully a decision will be coming soon!

Also, I know that last year's thread indicated that WLs come in the form of an e-mail. Can anyone that has applied this year confirm is that is still true for this cycle? I want to know if the status checker updates and we didn't get an e-mail...should we be expecting good news or could we still get a WL or rejection in the mail?
