I was planning to apply around Nov-Dec, when my app will be perfect, but I will actually apply as soon as the first one here will post his admission, with an incomplete application, rushing the personal statement and forgetting the addenda I prepared carefully in advance.

I don't think it should be any cause for concern. I've seen some people on LSN get admitted without any interview at all.

I got the interview request email with the wave early this week, just haven't been contacted since agreeing.


I had to call them and they reassigned me

It's been a week and I have not heard from the alum.

Will call today.



I'm in the same boat. What did they tell you? I think I'm going to follow up with them tomorrow,


They are not answering the phone today so I emailed them. It took maybe around an hour to hear back.

They told me that they will remind interviewer to contact me but it is common that interview appointments slow down during the holiday season.

Does Georgetown notify solely by mail? I picked up my mail yesterday and noticed I got three different letters meant for other units and accidentally placed in my mailbox, but my building's policy is apparently to just put the mail back in the "Outgoing" box and have it returned to sender rather than giving it to the correct tenant :shock: Kinda nervous that some mail meant for me might be going to other people's mailboxes!

Pretty sure it's only mail.

Congrats! Complete date?


Also, when was the letter dated/postmarked, if you don’t mind me asking!


Honestly not sure about what the exact complete date was (maybe I'm blind but I don't see it on my profile)... but it was the end of October sometime. And also unhelpful, I've already thrown away the envelope it came in, but the letter itself was dated the 14th!

If I get a negative vibe from an interviewer, should I ask to be reassigned?

Interviewer is gone until next week Thursday and does not want to meet on the weekends.

how quickly have ED applicants been getting their decision? I went complete today, applying with GRE scores in place of LSAT

Closing in on three weeks after being complete/ having interviewed... losing hope that I will get accepted, which is a huge bummer considering how much I like Gtown.

FWIW, one (or at least one) of my recommenders got an email from Dean Cornblatt at the beginning of the month thanking him for the recommendation and saying he was mailing my acceptance letter the same day. I still haven't received it (which is driving me crazy, and probably also why the email asked my recommender not to tell me.....), so you might still be ok.

Ok, thanks for the gut check. I was thinking the same thing; I have never NOT sent a thank you email for any interview I've ever attended for anything, but....would this make him hate me? Perhaps.

I think he sends an email thanking you the next day. I just responded to that email.

I did, yes. He sends you an email saying thank you and that he is looking forward to reading your application (might be different if he's already read it) and I replied to that email. It was sent the next day so I didn't bother sending him a separate email.

Awesome, thanks guys! That sounds like just the right note to strike. I'll wait for him to email first.

Also the interview was SO MUCH FUN. Thanks to those who gave me insights on what it would entail. I even had a dream about going to law school last night where I had a great time (as opposed to all my other recent law school dreams which are usually me getting there to find out classes started 3 weeks ago and I've already missed a test, everyone is mean to me, no one lets me eat lunch with them, and all sorts of other ridiculousness that a woman my age should not be worried about).

Anyone going to the NYC group interview with Dean Cornblatt on December 5th? Anyone already do one and can provide me some insight? :D
