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.

Not yet, applied ED on 10/16. Above 75% for GPA, below 75% for LSAT.

I think acceptances are just small letters sent by Dean Cornblatt and are not typically larger envelopes. But I could be wrong.


Yea any mailed envelope is an acceptance. The rejections are emails

I don’t think so. I’m a URM so I bet that explains a lot. Was the interview super accesible to you? I am in DC and Dean Cornblatt did say that the interviews help gauge interest in Georgetown

I haven't heard anything at all and went complete at the end of September. What does this mean?

To those deferred, do you mind sharing with me what your email says? My decision got deferred as well but I didn't apply ED, I'm so confused by this email, they could've just ghosted me till they have a decision.

:shock: also just got deferred, although they used the word "postponed" in the email that they sent... Both numbers right at the medians.

Any guess for how long we need to wait?

Hey guys, sorry for the stupid question, but why doesn't my status checker have dates on it? It says "application completed" but no date anywhere in the status section.
