Thanks everyone! In all honesty, I love GW and would have said yes in a heart beat if they had offered me full time but I'm not sure if I can do part time (all the classes are nights/weekends, loans will be more difficult to get, etc.)... it's really heartbreaking because I want to go there so much but for me part time doesn't make sense financially

I have been going back and forth with admissions arms they have told me that there are no spaces for full time available- short of a miracle- :( sorry for the bad news... but they may accept part time people (I'm not sure if/how many spaces are available) after Friday- the commitment deadline they gave me

Thanks for the update. Doesn't sound too promising. I don't want part time...Guess I better start my lsat prep now... GW breaking hearts left and right today...

After getting wait listed I sent in 2 extra letters of rec (one from an alum), but didn't re take the LSAT or do anything else to drastically improve my application. I got the selective email back in April and the follow-up on June 15. I then also got an email last Friday asking if I would consider part-time status. I responded this morning that I only wanted to be considered for full-time and that I needed to have an answer by Friday because I had a deadline for my housing at the other school I would've attended (Emory). Within a few hours I got a response saying I would have an answer by tomorrow, but that "unfortunately, scholarship funds are depleted though you could still apply for need-based grants." A few hours after that I got an email that I was accepted. Since most of you are probably on a time-crunch like me, might be okay to send them an email asking for a decision by a certain day since they didn't seem to have a problem getting me an answer quickly. With that said, if you're hoping for scholarship money it doesn't look like theres much or any left for this cycle. Hope this helps someone a little, and good luck to everyone! Hope you all end up on campus in the fall.


Were you accepted for full-time? Congrats!

Yes I am!! Better use of my time than staying in my tiny state and retaking the lsat. So GW here I come! They said I can transfer to full time after my first semester and graduate in 3 so not too bad of a deal. I'll take the max 11 credits and make up criminal law however they let us do that. Evening classes are fine, I'm not a morning person anyway. :)

Just notified admissions I'd be going elsewhere. Hopefully someone here gets my spot and $$$.

Best wishes to you all!
