I had my group interview mid-November, at which he said our decisions would be out in two weeks. I am still waiting...

Yikes, I feel your pain. I'm hoping the holidays just slowed everything down. Good luck!

Same with me -- exactly.

And I understand being patient is something that is needed as a lawyer, and that GULC officially says 8-12 weeks. But having said that, I think as an applicant it's a bit of a turn-off to be told one thing ("decisions will be coming very soon") and then wait over two months after that.

I know the email said we won't here anything until February, but has anyone who was "held/postponed" heard anything back yet?

I'm a nervous impatient ball of nerves.

I had my interview mid-October and was also told "very soon/in a few weeks." I didn't hear back until mid-December at which point I was waitlisted. I did have a date change on Wednesday. Who knows what that means...

Hopefully all this movement this week signals some sort of pending decision.

I only had one update since going complete a zillion years ago (October) and that was this week. Though it could be a dreaded WL or REJECT

Hope we hear soon!

Same situation with me. Last date change was early December. Hoping to hear soon!

In more relevant news, it has been over a month since I was told that an alumnus/a would get in touch with me for my interview, and I still haven't heard anything.

Somehow my Georgetown status checker lists my second email as my old high school email address that I've tied my .edu address to via Gmail, while no other app does (just has my .edu listed twice)... and it's a cringe worthy email address. :shock:

I can use some love — especially since Michigan has SNUBBED me (still complete) and my Georgetown interviewer is ignoring me. Maybe I should just call it a day and send in the NYU deposit…

weird...I don't know how the gtown interview works but have you contacted the school yet?

also, where in the world are you now? I like to imagine you trecking through the jungle.

Finally had my alumni interview today! It was super casual and was more of an hour-long pitch for GULC than an interview. Very fun experience :)

Here's to hoping for a quick decision soon!

Congrats to those who've gotten in recently!

Checking in, though I submitted mid-November.

For those of you who were held, what did the status checker look like before you received your held e-mail? e.g., was your status date the same date your held email was sent out? It seems to be the trend that if you are accepted, your current status date is reflected on the letter postmark, but I'm curious about those receiving other statuses. I've had a handful of updates, two post-interview (which was late December), but won't have access to my mailing address mailbox for several days.

Fingers crossed! I'm so tired of over-analyzing a status checker that only gives us a date to work with... :roll:

Yeah, I'm curious about this, too. I've had 2 status updates since my interview, but the last one was on 12/20. Haven't heard anything since.

I was held on 1/9, and my previous status was: application complete 12/5. No changes until the e-mail. But I couldn't make the interview (was out of the country). I think it might have hurt my chances...

I have the exact same date showing on my status checker. Makes me a feel [a little] better knowing your numbers got you into my #1 (Mich).

Let us know how it turns out.
