Even looks like some people found out on Friday last year. Probably depending on your location relative to Gtown due to snail mail. But the accepted students portal login doesn't work for me yet - so either I'm not in or they fixed this bug. Anyone else tried it?


It's not working for me either. I think I remember someone on TLS posting that the trick might not work early in cycle for some reason? I don't know if that's accurate or why it would be the case, but it might explain it not working.


is the trick just to request a password from the accepted student site to see if you're in the system?

Yep exactly, as they only ask for last name and email

Yeah didn't work for me. I'm assuming it's too early in the cycle for this trick though.

Anyone know if it's people start receiving mail on the 15th or whether that's the day they start going out?

I"m still bummed that with the interview I'll only be hearing back after November 1st :(

On the bright side, I thought I broke my thumb kickboxing yesterday but X-ray shows I didn't. It would have cramped my style for all the upcoming interviews.

The past two years the 15th has been when people have first received the letter but they also opened the application five days earlier then- 9/10

Thanks! And damn I hadn't thought about that late app open this year. Hope it doesn't change things.

What's the consensus on the importance of optional essays? 169/3.73

Not sure what the consensus is about how reliable this was, but last year's thread had some people have "final undergraduate transcript and certification form" with unchecked boxes next to them in the "requirements" box shortly before getting their snail mail acceptances. So maybe some of us will have those soon :mrgreen:

Wait, seriously? That seems very bizarre to me. Have you applied yet? Maybe if you haven't they just see you looking at the other D.C. schools and want you to consider Gtown. If you did apply did you include those schools on your app as other schools you're applying to?

This seems very odd to me.

I also got the email I think you're talking about. It looks like an automatic email to people who filled out the "Introduce yourself to Georgetown" link on there website?... that's my guess.

From Facebook:
Georgetown Law, Office of Admissions
The Office of Admissions will be closed on Monday, October 17 for our annual staff retreat. We will return all emails and calls on Tuesday when we are back in the office.

Is this a sign they are planning to be out of the office when a lot of calls might be coming in?

Yes. That's pretty genius actually. Unless you're not one of the lucky ones in the first batch of acceptances lol.

Sorry if this has already been discussed at length here, I'm just joining in, but is Georgetown known to give out much significant merit-based aid? I feel like I've seen less discussion about scholarships at GULC than at other universities and $$ will be a pretty big factor for me
