Seriously. If that's the type of LSAT they're going for I'm toast.

I withdrew from the PWL a few days ago so hopefully that leaves less competition for all you other waiters.

My guess is that maybe that person has some c&f issues - why else would he/she have been waitlisted everywhere? those numbers are WAY too strong for that. It seems like gtown really wants 168/169 lsats, from those getting in off the waitlist. Things aren't finished yet!

Yes, although all we have is the small number of data points (LSN), Gtown seems to be aiming for 168.

I was admitted yesterday, couldn't be more thrilled :). I was on priority waitlist, received the waitlist update email Monday and immediately replied back. Got a feeler call around 9 am PST saying expect good news, and accepted via email a few hours later. They are giving me until 6/17 to deposit and its $1200.

Going 5-6 months without any acceptances was really hard on me, and obviously forced me to be very introspective about my weaknesses. Only schools for sure can know what is going on, but I will say it isn't C&F.

Anyways, there is still hope guys! Feel free to PM me with any questions.


Congrats! When I first learned of your acceptance on LSN, I immediately thought of your avatar (I definitely spend too much time on TLS :lol: )

Congrats! GULC was definitely the most badass school I visited. I met two peeps who were working in national security law, I felt like a total civilian nub next to their security clearances.

Might as well update you guys. I was accepted from the waitlist with the first batch of people. I got nothing for scholarship money and ended up withdrawing. About a week later they asked if I would attend if they could offer me scholarship money. I was honest and told them what it would take for me to attend (which was an offer similar to those i had from USC/UCLA). They got back to me today saying they would be unable to match the offer competitively due to lack of funding. So, those of you on the waitlist may in fact have a shot at getting money off the waitlist. Just don't be too honest with out much it would take for you to attend, or you wont see a penny :P. With that said, good luck to all of you waiting.

I wish you only the best at UCLA/USC!

On a separate yet related note, I'm surprised the Admissions office works on Saturdays... don't they take a break?

Also, does anyone know whether the wait list is ranked? I keep receiving hopeful messages from Georgetown, but have not been accepted. The whole exercise of sending me vague but slightly optimistic messages seem rather perverse if I ultimately won't be tapped from the wait list. I mean, why bother with it all? I assume many of us are in the same boat in this regard.

There are (were, at this point?) three waitlists. They are distinguished by rank.

Yeah, there were three at least... but it looks like there are only two at this point?

I don't think the original three necessarily apply at this point. I was on the regular wait list but received several messages that those on the higher wait lists did not.

Not ranked. See below.

Applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are among those we would like to include in our first year class. These applicants have the strongest credentials of all waiting list candidates and, as a result, receive priority consideration if spaces become available. Offers of admission to waiting list candidates may be made up until registration day in August.



Although the number varies from year to year, typically fifty spaces open for waiting list candidates, some as late as registration day. Should a decision to admit you be made earlier, however, we will contact you right away. Please be advised that applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are not ranked.

At this point, I have no idea what the deal is with the different waitlists. I thought I was on the "regular" list but then got some emails the others on the higher lists got, including the one last week asking for another loci so they can "gauge my interest." No idea what any of it means...

My best guess is that most (if not all) of us will continue to sit on the wait list, and will eventually receive a rejection message thanking us for applying. As much as I'd love to be admitted (a dream, in fact), I highly doubt that I'll ever see this outcome. I'm trying to remain optimistic and hopeful, but honestly, each passing day that brings no--good--news from Georgetown only plays to my cynicism. I only wish that the Admissions office were more forthright, rather than sending promissory but ultimately fruitless messages.

This is what happens with every waitlist though. It's a statistical fact. Most folks don't get pulled off it. Not anything to be depressed for very long about though. If you begin to feel sorry for yourself, think about it from the perspective of someone who's seen nothing but rejections the past six months. Remember 150 is the average LSAT score for the whole country. Georgetown typically doesn't entertain below 160. Most people would kill to be considered admit worthy enough to be on Gtown's waitlist.

And btw...this shit ain't over. We got a long summer ahead...

Just got a call from the admissions office to gauge my interest in attending if I'm accepted off the waitlist. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but man that would be cool...
