Is the part-time degree the same as the full-time degree?
Yes. Aside from the number of credits and time of the courses (evening), part-time students receive the same opportunities to pursue clinics, journals and moot court.
Are the professors who teach part-time courses the same as those that teach full-time?
Yes. Full-time faculty rotate and teach both full-time and part-time courses.
Is it harder to schedule all the classes you want to take because the offerings are more limited in the evening?
No. Generally, Georgetown tries to offer the same courses during the day and evening.
Do prospective employers favor full-time students over part-time students?
No. Employers do not distinguish between full-time and part-time students. However, fewer part-time students elect to participate in the summer associate program because of their work commitments.
May part-time students participate in journals, moot court and clinics?
Yes. All Georgetown Law J.D. students are eligible.
May I transfer to the full-time program?
Students will be permitted to transfer from the part-time to the full-time program only in cases of a demonstrated significant change in circumstances. Under the current policy, the ability to switch programs once you start is by no means guaranteed and is determined on a case-by-case basis. Please see the Georgetown Law Bulletin for additional information.

The Status-Checker Journey
RECEIVE status checker
RECEIVE SMALL ENVELOPE IN MAIL
After this, you will typically have several "updates," where the date will change, but not status. The status checker says that this normally means nothing, but a lot of people receive an interview request (if applicable) after the second update, and an acceptance after the third. Decisions are sent by mail in a small envelope.
