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.

Also, is it true that Georgetown has you do a write-up basically advocating how much merit aid you should get?

You have to set up a log in with your last name and email, then they'll email you log in details.


If we can't log in does that mean we got dinged?


I wouldn't think so. I would think it just means there isn't a decision yet.


So if it says it can't generate a password for me, does that mean there's no decision? Or is there some other error?


I checked mine every day after my interview and it said no password every day until yesterday when it emailed me my username and password when i tried to log in so it probably just means you don't have a decision yet.

I sent my application on 12/29. I have no idea when it went complete because my Georgetown status checker never updated with a date. Honestly, I'm surprised it has only taken three weeks. I was expecting not to hear back from them for a couple of months!

I've received two group interview invites, but had to decline both because I've been out of town for work during both interview dates (I'm a consultant, so have to travel a lot). Will that adversely affect my chances? I feel like they'll think I'm blowing them off or "not interested enough", but I truly can't attend due to work, especially when they only give a week's notice before the interviews. Anyone else have to decline twice in a row?

Has anyone who can get in on the admitted students site not had their status checker change? Mine still just says "complete" and has no decision/decision date but I can log on to the admitted students site... it's starting to make me nervous that somehow I didn't get in???

Pretty sure GULC's status checker doesn't change after complete. Willing to bet you're in!! :mrgreen:

It doesn't update even after acceptance. The only ways to know for sure if you've been accepted/denied is if you get your letter or ding email or can log into the site. Everything else (including NOT being able to log in to the site) is meaningless

Did anyone from a December 14th NYC group interview (or any interview on Dec. 14th) get notification yet? The Dean told us 2 weeks and 3 weeks max b/c of the holidays, but it has been over a month now and I'm going crazy :(

I did an interview early January and already heard back. At this point it might be worth checking in to see - it's been 5 full weeks at this point. Or rather, I should caveat - in any other situation I'd call to follow up, but in this weird law school application game for all I know that's totally verboten.

I interviewed early January and am still waiting if it makes you feel any better. He said we'd hear by the end of the month, so maybe email early February if you haven't heard back?

Yeah I'd be really hesitant to reach out... I feel like there must be a lot of people who do that and maybe it's annoying for them? Idk :/

So the status checker says my application is complete, but there is no status date or anything listed under the requirements list. Does that means they are still processing?

I interviewed 12/11 and haven't gotten anything in the mail yet, but I emailed the Dean directly this Monday and it seemed like they quickly checked on my app because I was able to log into the ASW site yesterday!

The Dean told us the same thing so I think it's perfectly fine to email and check in!

I know myself and at least one other 12/18 group interviewee haven't heard back and he told us the same thing. I try not to email adcoms cause I know they get so many, but if it really sped it along for you I might have to

Yeah, for me I heard nothing for almost 6 weeks which is more than double what the Dean told us, so I felt like it was completely fine at least to reach out and ask, especially knowing that other applicants in my interview group heard back weeks ago. The Dean responded to me within 2 hours!

I got my letter with a note from the Dean in the mail today, which was reassuring. Even though I was able to log into the Admitted Students site yesterday, I had this nagging feeling that it was a mistake.

I had to decline a couple in a row but was finally able to make one. Still awaiting decision.
