The main campus gym smells like chlorine on the inside and is getting old (the soccer field on the roof of the gym was closed down this year because it was judged to be structurally unsound), and the library is jokingly referred to as Stalin's gift to Georgetown because it looks like something ripped from brutalist, Soviet Moscow (the inside also seems like it's still got a foot stuck in the 70s). GULC's facilities--be they the [AMAZING] fitness center, law library, or even McDonough Hall--are miles ahead of what the main campus has to offer. Aside from taking pictures in front of Healy, the main campus doesn't really have that much to offer tbh.

Hahah love your analogies. I'm completely aware of how much better the GULC campus is compared to the main campus! The main gym is basically a huge warehouse with curtains to split out the weight training/cardio area from the basketball courts. haha

I just thought it was strange that GULC is its own island that has nothing to do with its parent school.

Lol... *back in my day* the bottom part of New South was literally an old abandoned cafeteria. The main campus actually has had some nice facilities added for you guys in the past few years!

Not to get too off topic ;)

This is true, I was a a bit too harsh in my comment :P I guess for me since the facilities at the Law Center are already very good, I would not feel the need to make the trek through DC traffic all the way to the main campus. When I visited the Law Center a few months ago I was actually jealous we didn't have more of what they have!

Just got waitlisted. International with an S GPA, 166 LSAT. Interviewed on Dec.18th. Though not unexpected, still quite sad...

I also just saw the e-mail and got waitlisted. What was the language used in everyone's WL e-mail? It gave me hope

Regular Waiting List, specifying that I'm on the regular WL and not priority reserve :( with my numbers (LSAT around 25%, GPA around 50%) I am not surprised, but GULC is my top choice so this is bad news.

Sorry if this has been asked before but does Georgetown offer stipends for traveling students attending ASW? Thanks in advance

Nope, they do not. I asked one of the admission officers when I visited GULC a couple of days ago

I'm confused. How can you tell? Mine didn't even mention the words waitlist.

They said: "Each year, a large number of candidates submit applications to Georgetown Law early in the process. The high quality of this group makes the Committee's decisions extremely difficult. Please be aware that only a small number of early applicants have their applications held, and a number of those applicants in past years have subsequently been admitted."

Is this preferred waitlist?

Well mine said in the email that I was "placed on the preferred waiting list." So maybe yours is regular waiting list if it doesn't specify? I'm not sure how their waiting lists work so that's why I was wondering about mine

I was placed on a regular Waitlist last cycle and this cycle I got the same message about being "held" until Feb 28th. I'm assuming it's just a status update, and an admit/WL/ding will come later.

They say no additional information is needed but I'm wondering if we should send an LOCI?

Exactly. It says a decision will be made before Feb. 28th. It doesn't say anything about a waitlist, it says "Although the record you present is a strong one, the Committee on Admissions has chosen to postpone your final decision" which sounds similar to a waitlist to me...

Did anyone who applied ED and got deferred hear back yet? It also says that we should know by Feb 28th I was just hoping for sooner.

Anyone submit final transcript and or dean's certification yet? I'm curious if it will actually reflect on the status checker when they get it.

Really...? I'd email them immediately and ask about it. 173 and a 3.9 is Harvard-level numbers

Hmmm.....

Bad News: Could be something about your application...because those are definitely the numbers to get into GULC, let alone waitlist.

Good News: Forget GULC, with that 173 you'll open 13 more doors :D

Is it possible they didn't see my new score? What should I email them and have you ever heard of them reversing a decision? Don't want to waste anyone's time...
