Congrats to all of those accepted!!!

Anyone want to speculate on whether they send letters in one huge batch or over several days? If it's 1 batch that would imply that once letters hit the west coast and international, then any east coast letters would have been received...right?

Can anyone who has gotten a letter say when it was mailed?

(Yes, I'm over thinking all of this, I know. :? )

Unsuccessful fee waiver solicitation. :( 3.55/175.

I wrote my optional essay on "Top Ten Cats I've Petted."

Not sure about the batches, but I read on a thread from last year that there might be a difference between "application complete" and "application completed" in the status checker... Speculation is that "completed" means a decision has been made. Anybody know anything about this? My status is "completed" but I don't remember if it ever said "complete" before that. Anybody's status say "complete"?

So mine went to "completed" one day after submitting, doubt there's anything to the complete/d debate. Also, the status check email says that once the application is complete, they no longer update status checker, so you're basically in the dark until the letter arrives....

Does the GRE have a positive effect on the application process? I notice the GULC still requires an LSAT score from ALL applicants per the bottom of their status checker.

From their FAQ page:

How will Georgetown evaluate applications that include both a GRE score and an LSAT score?

If you submit a GRE and an LSAT score, we will consider both scores. If you have multiple scores
for one or both exams, we will consider the highest score of each.

Plenty more Q&As from them on the LSAT vs. GRE: http://www.law.georgetown.edu/admission ... FAQs-3.pdf

No. You should prepare for and take the test that you feel is most indicative of your academic
ability. The Admissions Committee does not require multiple test scores and does not have a
preference for either test.

For those that were admitted:

Does the mailings section in your status checker show that they mailed something to you?

Thanks & Congrats!
