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.

Is it true that all gtown acceptances come by snail mail and all rejections come by email?

What about waitlist and deferrals? Email or mail?

A lot of people have been getting their acceptance letter way after their interview because it's sent through snail mail. Could easily be on its way to you.

There is some type of weird internal system at play. Snail mail anywhere on the east coast should be 3 days tops and people are getting them much longer after the letter date.

Just had to stick up for the fine people of the USPS.

Yeah they probably just sit in a bin for a few days before they are mailed out.

Just got my letter, interviewed at the end of November, letter was dated 12/07 and posted 12/12! I saw some other people from my group interview got their letter a couple days ago so it took me a couple extra days to get my letter

Based on what my interviewer told me and all the dates people have been posting here, I think they make their decisions on Thursdays/Fridays and then mail them out on Mondays/Tuesdays.

Just had my alumni interview. The guy was really nice and I found gulc more attracting now. :lol:
So are all acceptances come by mails? What about international applicants? Do they post international mails or just send emails?

Okay, so. I received an invitation to go to a group interview on 11/11. I RSVP’d immediately to decline BECAUSE I am living in Thailand, far far away from the group interview. I haven’t heard anything since. At the time, I didn’t realize how important the interview was to the school, so I didn’t request an alumni interview. Should I send them an email to do so now? Since I haven’t received word of a waitlist or a ding yet so I feel like this might work in my favor...

I had to decline my first interview mid November due to an exam I had, I got another request out of the blue about a month later. If it's a legitimate excuse, I don't think they'll hold it against you.

I’m with ya, also interviewed late November and still waiting. There was a wave of dings/waitlists on Friday and Saturday though, so I think we still have a chance. They could be preparing to send out our letters now.

Georgetown needs to stop playing with my emotions though :?
