I got the alumni interview request as well, 2.8/167. Interesting that it says that it will not hurt your application if you decline, I wonder if there is more risk in doing the interview than not taking part in it

Haha, thanks for shooting down my borderline theory. 170/3.92 is a few ticks north of borderline :lol:

Maybe they asked you to test out your interest level (for YP purposes)?


Yeah I can't imagine it's for anything other than gauging your interest. You didn't apply ED?

My GW status checker link doesn't work, the one they emailed me. No one else? Can someone link me the address to the checker?

https://aces.law.gwu.edu/YourStatus/mem ... dl9HPbk%3D

The address is correct but the link doesn't work. You have to copy and paste it into the browser.

**edit: The above link works, I was referring to the link in the email

I see a bunch of admits around my numbers (3.1 169) on LSN, but still just complete as of 11/19/12. Anyone else experiencing extremely few updates, or am I boned?

I had an update last week, but it was for an interview invitation. Maybe it's a good sign; they might admit you without the interview.

That'd be nice. I'm getting stressed as all hell right now.

Are standards up, down, or the same at this school?

I did mine right before x-mas. It was fairly typical: why law school; why GW; "if you couldn't be a lawyer, what else would you do;" then about a half hour of them selling you on the school. If you really want GW and are happy to pay sticker, you should make sure the interviewer gets that impression. Talk about the clinics and programs you love the most to show you've done your research. Talk about how much you love DC. etc etc

I have similar numbers to you and have gone through a few of these "borderline" interviews. I think they want an LSAT score and some easy gov't loan money to offset reverse splits and scholarships. and I think they're looking for someone who's happy to be used. Maybe I'm just a cynical bastard from being in "completed status" purgatory.

I actually think this is spot on. And personally, I would make them pay for that 169 LSAT you have. They can easily offset your GPA with someone else. LSAT much rarer.

Question for those who had been rendered a decision: How long after "Decision Made" do we get to know our actual decision? Do we hear by mail, phone, or snail mail?
