I have (a week longer).

I got the feeling my interviewer REALLY didn't like me, so I am not holding my breath. Honestly, I just assumed I was going to be one of the first dings when they started deciding on the held applicants last week. I guess I'll know by the end of Feb, but I was really hoping to hear today, arghhhh.

Thanks in advance!


I interviewed (with an alumnus) on 2/1 and my complete date says 1/13 still as well. Fingers crossed for us both to hear something soon.

If it's any help, I was first able to receive my password on a Friday right before their office would have closed (around 4:45pm). Possible they were updating the system before the weekend. I sincerely wish all of you the best.

Sorry if this has been answered earlier, but is it normal to be able to request credentials from ASW before those credentials are actually valid? I obsessively attempt to log in, and today I was finally successful in getting a username and PW. Unfortunately, they don't work. I'm not sure if I'm jumping the gun in believing I'm admitted or if GULC made a terrible mistake they're working to rectify.

Completely normal. It takes four days after being admitted. You're in. Congrats!

No email. I guess that's a good thing (for now).

From what we've seen in this thread, not really. They seem to be on more of a less than 4/5 weeks schedule.

On my last day of the three week ED today.

2/4->2/5->2/6 and can't request a password either. Here's to hoping it's good news...

Just curious about everyone else, did everyone tailor their personal statement to Georgetown? I kinda worked "why georgetown law" into the paragraphs and am thinking about sending in another "why georgetown" statement but it seems redundant/overkill

I didn't express "why georgetown" anywhere, and got in.

I think if you're going to express it, once is probably enough.
