Waitlisted. Weird, given that I got into Columbia. Oh well

Congrats about GW.

My own two cents: No. I would venture that many GTown admits, wait listed candidates, and rejects apply to GW and are admitted. I once read that GW=Georgetown Waitlist.

I don't think GTown would care, honestly. GTown is T14 whereas GW is not (though still an excellent institution). Status seems to be the name of the game w/law school admissions.

When did you apply/last hear from GTown?

Just my own thoughts, though....


Thanks, I'm inclined to agree with you. I got held at Gtown in mid December after having a very positive alumni interview a couple weeks earlier, and have not had any status updates, even post interview. I'm still standing at Application Completed as of 11/13, which worries me. In mid January I did send in an additional Gtown-specific LOR, LOCI, updated transcript, and updated resume that had two new publications and a newly declared emphasis in my second major. Basically I'm just worried and anxious, as everyone is lol thanks for the advice.

No worries. My situation is quite similar. Just hold tight! You can always send another LOCI/update. I strongly suspect you'll receive word this week. They did promise you by 2/28, right?

Yep! I'll just wait it out. I've been waiting for nearly four months, what's two more weeks? :-) thanks again, and best of luck!

Has there been any good news for held applicants?

No updates for me yet. I'm not really expecting any of us to get acceptances at this point, though.

Just had my third update after being held in early January: 2/13 -- 2/14--2/19

Hopefully the three-update rule is true and a decision comes soon!

How quickly do we usually see an answer after the three-update rule? Has anyone else getting these updates heard anything yet?

Nothing for me yet. Last week it seems like people got hold emails about an hour later, but they had updates later in the day.

Thanks.

Sorry about the ding. I think held at GTown is looking more and more bleak. I'm still waiting, but not expecting good news.

Yeah, I don't think my interview went that well, plus my numbers didn't help. I did write what I thought was a decent LOCI, but the damage may have already been done.

Finally an update to my app, the first since I got ED-deferred in mid-December. Looks like they'll hit me before Feb. 28 after all.

Anxiously awaiting decisions results from those of you who had updates throughout the last week or two, if only to see what I can expect! Best of luck to everyone.

Finally got my first update. I was at Application Completed as of 11/13 without any updates even after my interview in early December and being held in late December. This is sort of becoming a nervously depressing thread.

This may have already been covered in this thread but can someone tell me the 2/28 significance?

3/1 is their JD app deadline so I guess by 2/28 they should have a really good idea of how their applicant pool looks like

Second update post interview. Went from 11/13 to 2/20 to 2/21. Alumni interview in early December, held in late December. Ah this final week will be killer!
