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.

When did you apply?


Went complete 9/26


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!


Didn't get a group interview invite but I live on the other side of the country in a fairly rural state so I'd imagine that contributed to it. I feel your pain on the slow status checker though

Do they assign group interviews or do you request them? I live near DC and am high stats wise but wasn't invited to a group interview.

From what I recall Dean Cornblatt saying, early on there's a brief window when you can sign up for them, but they become invitation-only as the cycle progresses

They assign them, but interviewing is not a prerequisite for admittance so it's unclear who they are targeting with the interviews.

One more possible input to the interview thing!

Got an email in late September for group interview opportunities, about two weeks before I applied. All big-city locations, free for RSVP, so not exactly an invitation I suppose. I wonder if anyone else has gotten the same email?

Has anyone had a group interview yet? I have one later in the week but have not heard much about it yet this year.

So, since Georgetown says that their status checker does not update even when a decision is made... does that mean the only way we find out our decision is through the mail? Or would we get an email also?

I did. It's the standard GULG interview that was mentioned here or the 2020 thread.

It's quite fun, just make sure you can play well in the sandbox. Dean Cornblatt takes notes when you talk (assuming others interviewers do as well?). Expect around 10 people

Decisions only come out by mail, but you can search previous years' threads about the ASW web site trick.

Status checker will at least indicate when an admissions decision has been made, yes?

Hmm. The question I’m facing is whether they would send a letter to my international (current) address or my domestic (permanent) address. The unreliability of mail where I am stresses me out a bit if they decide to send the letter directly to me.

Well everyone... I am happy to announce that my letter arrived in the mail this afternoon. I live in Northern Virginia near DC, I attended an early interview, and I was above both medians.

Now the long wait until that $$$ offer. Definitely excited as GULC is very high on my list!

Are these decisions that are arriving soon only for those that did the group interview? I was invited but am away at school and it would have been extremely inconvenient to attend.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

No status checker update & I cannot request a password from the Admitted Students' Website.

As I said earlier I got in today, but did not do a group interview, optional essays, or anything extra.
