Went and visited Georgetown yesterday. I know many may like this, but I wish the law school was closer to the UG camps. The UG campus is stunning

It is, but having two metro stops at the law campus as opposed to bussing it makes it all worthwhile.

yeah, the contrast between the two is striking. I did my undergrad there; I dreaded having to go to the law school for mock trial stuff.

but yeah, so true re: metro... having to cross the bridge to get the rosslyn metro from Georgetown is worse than being on the cusp of a not-so-visually-appealing NE D.C.

It's definitely a lot better than the UG metro situation, but getting to Union Station from GULC is kind of a pain in the butt haha I would say that there's only one metro for GULC (Judiciary Square)

Not that this matters too much, given GULC's awesome fitness center, but it's weird that the law school is practically unassociated with the UG school...I mean that with your GULC id, you still have to pay to use the UG gym and facilities...kinda ridiculous

also I wouldn't pay, esp. because that gym is perpetually overcrowded & the library isn't worth the bus ride/cab fare.

what! how is it a pain?
oh, you mean like having to walk? in that sense I definitely agree because I just really dislike walking lol #lazy


Haha I don't mind walking but I hate those couple of intersections where when you cross the street, you're walking backwards (away from Union Station)...please tell me you know what I'm talking about hahaha

So upset, sent in my app 12/09, 25<LSAT<50, and GPA way above 75. Sent in a why x, optional essay, but haven't heard back, even regarding an interview. Would love to go there so seeing no progress here is disappointing.

They're definitely waiting for the December LSAT takers to apply so that they can get a better sense of the applicant pool this cycle before admitting non-autoadmits. Don't worry, I'm on the same boat :)

PS. Seems like high LSAT scores are way down this cycle, so there's that.

I also haven't heard back with slightly better numbers and I applied 11/30, so I think it's fine for now


I applied like 11/6 god dammit lolol
but at least we've survived the WL/ding waves so far

Is consensus that getting an alumni interview invite a good sign? Or does it mean they are on the fence?

Im super confused, pissed as well. I just got an email from the school saying:

"Thank you for participating in our interview process for Georgetown University Law Center. Although the record you present is a strong one, the Committee on Admissions has chosen to postpone your final decision.''

So, that's a wait list? Fuck... I am way above their 75th for LSAT, and median GPA. I even had a GREAT interview, went on for an hour, and they said I would make a great fit. Im absolutely livid. Someone please help me. Im freaking the fuck out.

Is this YP?

I definitely would. Scores and the number of applicants are down, they probably think you'll get better offers elsewhere.

Hold or WL, I should still write a LOCI preemptively, right? I have no one else to help me in these situation as I was abroad for 5 years. So, nerve wracking. If there's anything I can do, I will do it in earnest.

If I were you, I'd head to the MS9 consulting thread and ask him/the others helping in that thread. They're pros. They probably have a better idea of what may have happened/what you may be able to do.
