Congrats to the acceptances! I had my Georgetown interview with an alum (as well as interviews with alumni from Northwestern and Vanderbilt), and it was great. Feel free to PM me any questions!

Does your status change once a decision has been made?

Hey everyone!

Just checking to see if anyone's been having a similar experience to me: I submitted 11/22, went complete on 11/26, and haven't had a status change since then. I did get a group interview request on 12/4, but I had to turn it down because I couldn't make the travel arrangements. My status didn't change at all when that happened.

Everyone seems to be having multiple status changes, so I'm just confused as to why I'm having no movement. I'm above the 75% on LSAT and GPA, but just barely so (aka not enough for me to think it's YP). I also live/work in DC, so I assumed that could have expedited the process, but I guess I was wrong.

Similar numbers to you from what you said, maybe slightly better LSAT. Similar location. Submitted 11/8... Had an interview... Nothing since.

Can you guys shed some light on the alumni interview? Anything I should focus on other than the typical why law and why GULC?

Group interview invite today! Anyone know the protocol for this? Do they interview pretty much everyone or is it a pretty good sign that you'll be accepted?

A bunch have people have gone through them ITT, but in addition to those just know your resume and go with good questions. I really think my questions were what seperated my interview from being a solid interview to a great one.

Did you do an alumni interview? Maybe they thought you didn't show enough interest ?

I did, and I thought it went pretty well. I work at a big law firm in the same city so we had a good amount to talk about.

I accepted the alumni interview invitation 10 days ago and no response yet :(
I know it can take several weeks to set something up especially with the holidays but the wait is killing me! I almost wish I did not accept the invitation! LSAT at 75th, GPA at median. Anyone else in this boat? I need someone to commiserate with!

I'm sure it varies by region and availability of alumni. I accepted my invitation on 12/12 and had the interview in the bay area yesterday, but I know some other here have waited a while longer. I wouldn't sweat the wait

Mine took around a month, don't worry.
