I can get behind this. Same date; I'll join you in your optimism.

Guys - my citizenship did not change to USA when I got admitted. We can definitively kill the myth that noting citizenship either indicates or is insufficient for indicating acceptance.

Hi - long time lurker first time poster here. Something strange happened to my GTown status checker today. It had been at 1/9 for the longest time, and then today it changed to 2/7. Has anyone else experienced a retroactive status checker dating? Suspecting this bodes poorly.

How bad would it be to turn down an interview if we're unable to do one? Above both medians fwiw.

Okay... so I'm a long time lurker. I was held 1/24 and I applied RD. My status date changed on 2/21 and has now changed to 2/26. Has this happened to anyone else? Also, on the mailing section of my status checker three things used to be listed and now it is empty. Has this happened to anyone else who was held or not held?

Hey there! I was held back in November and had the date change on 2/21 as well. (However, I have not had a date change today.) Additionally, the mailings section has always been blank for me... I'm about to pass out from worry: I just want 5pm to hit with no emails, and then I can continue to pray for a snail-mail letter tomorrow or Friday!! Good luck to you!

This happened to me (I was out of the country). I was promptly held and I'm still waiting to hear back. Stats in profile.

I'm in the same boat and also curious. (12/17 was my first complete)

Welp...just got an interview request to meet up with one of the local alumni. How do these interviews generally go?

Mine was over Skype (probably because I am in a pretty obscure location). It was extremely relaxed. He asked "Why law?" and "Why Georgetown?" And the rest of the time we talked about his experience at Georgetown and politics. I would recommend having a lot of questions prepared to ask the interviewer.

Not a bad sign. I had two back-to-back updates following my interview and was able to request a password the day after the second update.

Thanks this doesn't sound too bad, I'm going to do a lot of preperation for it anyways even though it sounds pretty chill. Better to be overprepared than underprepared.

Great - that's good to know! Anybody else have a different experience? I know that in order to prep for my U Chicago interview next week I was informed that there was a large variety of potential questions. Probably depends on the interviewer (unless they have a specific format to follow?)
