So do you guys think it would be annoying if we emailed Admissions asking what to expect if they're late on the 3 week ED notification process? 9 days past the 3 week mark now and I'm nervous!

I think you're in for sure, your email would have came but your letter can still be traveling :)

I went priority held in December.

Updated my app with a new LoR from a recent employer and a LOCI. Received confirmation email from them that they received both.

However no movement on the status checker. Dunno if status checker is relevant anymore... we'll see I guess.

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

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



I just submitted a "why gulc?" essay on monday to be added to my app because I freaked out too since I hadn't personalized anything to Georgetown (but did apply ED)

Congrats! Just curious, did you try to get a password before receiving the letter and were you succesful?

Does everyone who is admitted have to go through an interview first, or are some people admitted without an interview? I've had three different "complete" dates about one week apart, and no request for an interview yet.

You can be admitted without an interview.

I see; thanks. So at point is it reasonable to try to request a password from the ASW?

Has Friday been the day they've been sending out the emails?

50% optimistic 50% pessimistic.



ASW trick?
