What do you mean by nonsense?

The overanalyzing, useless speculation nonsense.


Good explanation. Thanks! :roll:

Geez, isn't it pretty normal after you've received a disappointing outcome to think about what might have gone wrong? If you don't like what I had to say, that's fine, but there's no need to get nasty about it.


I see we are all using our Saturday night well. Me included.

Did anyone get a reply from GULC after you sent their response to the feeler email? I didn't even get the automated message confirming receipt so I'm kinda nervous they didn't get it.

Any held applicants hearing anything? They wouldn't be so cruel as to notify us on the 26th now, would they?

Nope. Had nothing to update except for a volunteer job that I haven't started yet :/ I too am expecting a WL/ding at this point.

Should I send in a Why GULC? I was under the impression that supp materials are sent only in the case of WLs or radio silence after like 4 months. You're making me all insecure :oops:

I was accepted this past Friday, post-dated from February 6th. I'm above both 75th's. Should I wait for that feeler email or just preemptively email them?

I think you're okay to do either. I solicited the feeler; they preemptively contact certain people and others I think experience a delay either because they're already being considered for named or programmatic schollys like PILS or because their stats aren't as good, maybe? That last part is purely speculative.

anyway, you'll surely hear soon regardless but if you want a chance to say your piece about where Georgetown fits into your thinking, I say go for it and solicit that thing.

Just got dinged after being held. At median GPA and above 75th LSAT. Feels bad man :( Good luck to the rest of you.

Recently got an interview request in NYC for next monday. No plan on going to GT, applied for negotiation. Email said application is under no disadvantage if no interview. Kind of have something that day. Should I go? I hear the argument of putting best app forward...

I apologize if this has been asked before and I'm sure it has, but what's the consensus on how "optional" the group interview really is? Just got an invite to attend one on President's Day which I'm really not down to do; will it really have no bearing whatsoever on whether or not I get accepted?

Did some research on past forums, and sometimes it takes 3-4 business days after admission to work after receiving a password

Sry, really surprised you got held with your numbers, expecting the same thing here on my end. Probably tonight.

When in Jan did you get held?

Not gonna lie, thought I was a shoo-in. Probably my lack of interest? Heard back second/third week of Jan about a week or so after my interview. Numbers aren't everything folks!

I'm sorry... I'm trying to ready myself for a ding. Tough.

Did they email you just today with the ding? I wonder how they're evaluating held applicants... Like, in what order, etc... I was held in early December and haven't heard anything yet.
