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.

Has anybody who was held (not from ED, just held) heard anything?

When did you submit/did you interview?


10/18. I did not interview. I'm also west coast based, if helpful

Just got placed on the "Preferred Waitlist"

TBH I am completely shocked by this. I applied two years ago with a 3.21/169 and was accepted within 2 weeks. Now I apply with a 171 and it lands me on the waitlist. Utterly baffled :x

I interviewed on 11/21 FYI.

Just got rejected (sorry, I really hate the word "dinged"). Applied 10/10. No interview. 166/3.49.

I was RD held as well. Applied September, interviewed October, got the Held message late November. No communication since. Not expecting too much until early February since I would guess they’re tossing us back in with the December lsat takers who are just now applying.

I hate using this phrase because I hear it SO OFTEN, but maybe the Trump Bump is real. :( I'm sorry, though. This process is absolutely baffling. :cry:

I think it's probably more the general health of the economy more than whatever "Trump Bump" exists.

Honestly, I wasn't really interested in Georgetown without at least $$$, which they seem reluctant to give (least of all to splitters). Just very confusing and unsure how well it bodes for the rest of the cycle. I've had very little doubts about my decision to sit out and retake until now.

LSN data from last year shows a bunch of 171+ applicants being waitlisted, likely as yield protection. I just got preferred WL as a splitter too.

I was 12/18 and I heard back-- snail mail.


I was also 12/18 but have heard nothing. If past iterations are any indication, looks like we might be looking at a waitlist...ChiCityLove are you able to log into the ASW?


Yes, I just got onto the ASW today. Good luck to all!

Just got preferred waitlisted, not really sure what it means and whether I should still hope for admittance or any money. Anybody able to explain and shed some light? Also should I send any further things, like fall grades and/or letter about continued interest? Maybe additional LORs? I'm actually still pretty interested in Georgetown soooo... Sorry I don't know much about the process beyond basic things, it would be much appreciated to hear anything further on this!

If they previously accepted you and then you didn't end up going, is it possible they YPed you this time around?

I just tried the "forgotten password" at ASW. They sent me a username and password and I could log in now. Does that mean I'm in? I haven't received any mail notification yet.

Not sure if this is the "preferred waitlist", but I got an email saying that they are putting my app on hold and will review it again in a few weeks


No, you'll be reviewed again before they move to waitlisted folks. A hold is kind of its own thing.

On the preferred waitlist... but I got into umich so I'm not that concerned, though georgetown is a LOT closer and in DC, so I wanted a chance.
Oh well, I guess....

I guess, but then why bother inviting me to the group interview?

Fair. Who really knows what's going on in these admissions offices anyways.

If the "preferred waitlist" is legitimately more 'preferred' than the regular waitlist, hopefully they'd let you in if you sent a particularly glowing LOCI or something. Either way though, that is a huge and very confusing bummer :?

Cycles for splitters can be weird, maybe they didn’t need your number combination as badly this time around, or like someone else said could be YP since you previously were admitted and didn’t attend. Given that you’ve gotten in before you probably have a decent chance of getting off the waitlist if you continue to show interest.
