Was today the first day you tried to log in?
In other words, how long after your last status update does your login go live?

No I've been trying to log in ever since my last status update on 12/9, but their ASW has been down until today.

Man, now my paranoia is kicking in. Would someone confirm that they cannot log in to ASW? Someone who submitted an application a couple of days ago, perhaps.


Well if you only submitted a few days ago, then I wouldn't expect a decision for a few weeks. I submitted on 11/7. Wait until you get a date change with status still complete.

Okay thanks. For those who can log in this should provide some comfort. I have not yet had a decision from Georgetown and cannot currently log in.

It gives you a message telling you to make sure your information is correct.

Edit: Seemed pretty harmless.

It says your name was not found in the system.

Thanks for the map! I'll go take a look.

To those who have interviewed: how did you handle the "why GULC?" question if you were interested in private sector work?

It was probably easier for me because I interviewed with a law firm partner and I'm interested in tax, but I also brought up thr fact that I have ties to multiple locations so a name like Georgetown can open all of those up to me as opposed to closing some from a local school.

Keep in mind that alumni are going to hold GULC in a much higher regard for private placement than TLS, especially if they graduated before 2008.

I went complete 11/21 (at the absolute latest--didn't check status checker right away), so three weeks would have been yesterday. They say a decision "will be communicated to you within three weeks." So, maybe they're construing that to be a mail-by date...
I'll exercise self-restraint and wait to call them so as to avoid pestering, but an agonizing wait. Anyone applying ED get WL/deferred/rejected via snail mail?? I thought the bad news was all done by email.


How frustrating. Unfortunately I have no answers for you. I personally would hold my breath and not call them - your acceptance could be in the mail tomorrow. Good luck, mate.


I applied ED and went complete on 11/21 also, and got an email earlier this week telling me my application is deferred for now. So, I think if it was a ding/defer you would have heard by now.



ED went complete on 11/5. interviewd on 11/15, no email about ding or deferred or anything. seems like my application just totally vanished or being tossed in a dark and humid corner
application status still stuck on 11/5.
so if its a' ding or defer and i'll know'. what does this mean/.i think im the only one here who havent heard anything for the longest time
GULC you sweet trouble


My alumni .edu email ate my admissions email evidently (adcom said that happens with some frequency when they email .edu emails) . . . a super fun bonus fourth week of waiting. Outcome: Deferred. I've heard that's the best-possible non-admit outcome though.

Got the email today.

WAITLISTED.

I went ED and had a 164 LSAT, so I'll take it.

Not the preferred waitlist, just the regular one, so I'll take what I can get.

Any chance I get in?

I'll put every power I have to get in

So... just to be clear... if we log onto the ASW and, upon clicking no password and entering our last name and e-mail we get a message saying "Your Username and Password were successfully sent to your email address" that means we're accepted...? Can someone please confirm again... please... :?

All I can say is that when I click that I get the following message:

Your username and password could not be generated at this time. Please double-check that the information you entered was correct.


As far I as I know I haven't received a decision yet. So it would seem that the message you're getting is certainly not the "default" state.

Just got the waitlist email.

LSAT: 172
UGPA: 3.92
Had to check yes to C&F question, but happened as a minor and all charges dismissed.

I even went to the group interview, which I guess didn't help much.

Just got an email that they have postponed their decision.

Really surprised because I just had a group interview that went rather well..

Can anyone shed light on what this all means?

I have to say that is a surprising result given your numbers. But I am sure you will have other great options from better schools than Georgetown.
