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.

No idea... I am completeD, fwiw...


As am I...can't remember if I was ever "complete" though...


For clarity sake, is the "d" actually capitalized on your profile, or are you just signifying that a "d" was added?


Just signifying that it was added! Capitalizing it in my posts as it can be hard to catch


Thank you for clarifying. Add me to that list. I am "Application Completed" as well.

Sorry for the double text, but I'm also curious if anyone else is experiencing a lack of dates in their profile? My profile just shows Application Completed with no status dates anywhere to be found.

Same. Gtown's status checker and emails look like someone sent them using HTML format in the late 90s.

They say in the checker email that once the checker says complete, don't bother checking it because they won't update it. I don't think they place a lot of importance on maintaining them up to date or, it appears, even filled out all the way.

Thanks for bringing that up. I saw that but was a little unsure how to interpret since previous threads have Georgetown making updates, date changes, etc...

Anyone else thinking letters may go out Monday? Based on last year's thread it seems likely. ASW also went down in the days leading up to first decisions, so be on the lookout for that as well!

Checking in! Has anyone successfully solicited a fee waiver? 175 and 3.9x GPA - normally would be worried about YP, but I was a Gtown undergrad so hoping that helps :shock:

Brand new "mailings" section on the status checker, which also showed up the week letters went out last year! Best of luck everyone!

Any thoughts on whether I should wait to apply as a splitter until after December with a 168 LSAT or should I just apply now? Confident I can hit 170+ ... I misbubbled. The silliest of mistakes... but with Georgetown's 75 at 168, I'm wondering if it's better to apply early here.

Feel like you're in a good position to apply early - get the rest of your app spic span and send away!

Finally sent in everything today. That Top 10 optional response took me much longer than it should.

Good luck everyone!

Does anyone have time to read my 10 year essay and let me know if it's a pleasant yet informative read? :)

Thank you!

Waited outside on the porch this afternoon/evening watching my kids play outside and waiting for the mail. He finally came and had a letter from... Delaware Law :roll: Fingers crossed for tomorrow though.

1) Did you do a group interview? If so, how long after?

2) WHY CAN'T I GET THE STATUS CHECKER TO LOAD!?
Edit: I GOT IT TO LOAD!
