Has anyone gone under review yet? The past couple of years it seemed like people who applied in September went under review the first week of Oct. I applied a day after the app came out and mine still just says application complete

I applied for this - they said it's typically given to people who far exceed BOTH of their medians (which I do not...but I went for it anyway because I'm not EDing anywhere else and it's one of my top choices)

Did they waive anyone else's application fee? I logged onto LSAC to start my app and noticed the application fee was $0... (Not complaining :lol: )

Since there's no section for addendum, that means we can't write a Why GW essay right?

Based on TLS threads, two years ago notifications started on 31 October, last year they started on 17 November. I saw somewhere it was 8-12 weeks after application complete to get an answer, but it looks like early appliers get a quicker answer. I applied on the first day it was open, my status checker has a "complete" date of 21 October, and I'm under review. Also, notification via e-mail with snail mail follow up.

It seemed like those people that heard back 11/17 last year went under review much earlier-in the first week of October. So that might mean a pretty big delay in hearing back since the first to go under review this year weren't until 10/21

Went under review 11/1. Does anyone who's gone under review and received a decision have any idea how long the "under review" time is before a decision?

I don't suppose anyone has heard anything? If I recall, GW has historically started admitting by now for the last couple years....
