Congratulations to everyone who got in!

I was wondering if anyone else here hasn't had a status update since "Application complete"...it's been a few weeks for me.

I wish the status check was a little more informative =(

Edit: just noticed my status was updated on the 27th, but it's still "Application Completed"

It's not the end of the world, I got around 8 updates, including something like 4 after the interview, before I was accepted.

Are you RD/ED, below/at/above medians - if you don't mind me asking?

I'm RD and at/slightly below. Seems like they are doing these in batches with the auto-admits first.

The wait is excruciating!

Below both, URM, unique softs. Definitely a reach school for me! I was stunned to get an interview in the first place and it has all been moving so fast since I went complete that the lag now is painful. It makes sense it would take a bit longer for me to hear than auto-admits, though.

Accepted!

ED, 167, 3.82

Received the letter with a personal note from Dean Andrew Cornblatt. The letter was dated November 27 and postmarked November 29. My application was complete on November 20. I had at least two status updates (I didn't know to count). I was slow to check my mail post holiday because I wasn't expecting anything for another week at least. Oh, and no interview. Also no extra essays for Georgetown. Just a personal statement, resume and two solid letters of rec.

So if you're applying ED, you might get your letter early! :wink:

Congrats to all the admits, and see you next fall!

Had my interview this evening. Seemed to go very well. Was much more of a simple conversation. It lasted around 1.5 hours at a local hotel lounge. There were no gotcha question. Just be prepared to talk about your experiences to this point, why
Law, what you want to do after school, and have a lot of questions ready to ask the interviewer.

Overall it was very relaxed and friendly. We each had some wine and I actually enjoyed the experience. It seemed to be heavily weighted towards being a GULC pitch (although that is probably too strong a term) than a straight up evaluative interview.

All in all I think it went well.

Yep. No idea if that is the norm or not. But it was definitely a "hey let's just chill out in this swanky lounge for a bit and chat while we sip some wine, no rush" sort of thing :D.

Question for those admitted:

How much longer after receiving your letter in the mail did you receive an email from Georgetown alerting you to your admission?

Thanks!
