OPTIONAL RESPONSES
In the Office of Admissions, we take great pride in dispelling the myth that the admissions process is strictly a numbers game. While numbers are important, the Admissions Committee would like to give you the opportunity to express yourself, and us to get to know you, in another way. If you would like to provide us with additional information about yourself, which the Admissions Committee will consider in evaluating your application, please feel free to choose ONE of the following 5 optional responses.

When we say optional, we really do mean optional. The Committee will in NO way hold it against you if you choose not to answer any of these questions.
250 words maximum

1. One of the core values of Georgetown Law is that students and faculty learn from each other. As you imagine yourself as a member of the Georgetown Law community, what is one lesson that you have learned in your life that you will want to share with others?
2. What do you regret not doing?
3. What is the biggest ethical challenge you have ever faced and how did you handle it?
4. Fill this box in any way you like:
Image
(actual size, 616 x 186 pixels)
5. Prepare a one-minute video that says something about you. Upload it to an easily accessible website and provide us the URL. (If you are using YouTube, we strongly suggest that you make your video unlisted so it will not appear in any of YouTube's public spaces.) What you do or say is entirely up to you. Please note that we are unable to watch videos that come in any form other than a URL link.[/list]




Georgetown University Law Center Campus:
Image

"Tradition. Innovation. A superb faculty, hundreds of course offerings — and all of this just steps away from the Capitol and Supreme Court. Georgetown Law is an exceptional institution in an enviable location.

Students come here from all over the world to study international or tax law, environmental or health care law (just a few of our specialties). They come here for our top-ranked clinics. Most of all, they come because this is the place where theory and practice meet. At Georgetown, students learn the law in the place where laws are made."

Crest and Motto:

So granted, GULC may not have the most glamorous location, but being close to downtown DC is pretty cool. Here's what their website has to say about the campus:

"The five-building campus has lecture halls, two libraries, apartments for students, health care facilities, and a child care center. The campus has state-of-the-art classroom facilities and a Moot Court Auditorium modeled after the U.S. Supreme Court. The library is one of the most innovative and engaged academic law libraries in the nation, with its research guides and tutorials used by individuals in every U.S. state as well as over 190 countries.

The apartments have a moot courtroom, student lounges, a 12th-floor lounge and terrace with panoramic views of the city. The Sport and Fitness Center provides students with three stories of facilities including a swimming pool, cardiovascular equipment and free weights, aerobics and spinning studios, racquetball courts and a full-sized basketball/volleyball court. Downstairs, students gather around the café to chat or study on comfortable couches near warm fireplaces and an indoor fountain."

I think so - If you lurk past threads you see people talking about other questions.

How "optional" is the GULC 250? Will we get dinged for lack of interest if we don't write it?


idk why you wouldnt if they give you an option. One would think that, all else similar, an applicant will be viewed higher if they write it then not

Official Answer:
Optional Responses - Georgetown Law wrote: Please be advised that the Committee will in no way hold it against you if you choose not to submit an optional response.


But it would probably be a good idea to do it if you actually want admission - might help avoid YP if nothing else.

TCR...but at least you aren't out in the boonies where Gtown UG is located...and you can easily live anywhere on the yellow/green line, including a lot of fun places.
