true. I have a feeling that Gtown cares more about # than about polyglots :(


Oh no. Another one here. Maybe 12/1 is the polyglot batch.

question: Does everyone else's status look like this too:

Current Status: Application Completed
Current Status Date: 12/1/2009
Decision Status: Decision Rendered
Decision Status Date: 12/1/2009


the application completed update seems odd

I'm no polygot but if I get accepted I will probably be speaking nothing but babble for a few weeks after. My brain will simply melt with surprise.

We shall all look back on these days and laugh--or cry, depending how our career goes...... :mrgreen:



DR 12/01

Non Traditional with numerous strong Softs and tons of WE.

My numbers are on the low end of the spectrum.

Was ED but converted to RD.

Not exactly an URM.

I interviewed yesterday and my status still hasn't changed back to under review. Didn't it do it instantly for other people?

I just got deferred by Georgetown via Email. :? How does someone who is RD get deferred? I made sure, and I did apply RD.

Really confused right now. Oh well, let the wait continue.

I was just deferred as well. What the heck does that mean? I'm not even sure it's better than being waitlisted . . . . it's like a waitlist for waitlisting.

I guess so. They said they will review my application again in January and give a final decision by Feb 26.

It says that a small number of early applications are held and that a number of those have been been admitted in previous years.

Some schools defer you and basically mean they'll give you a second look in a few months. I assume that's what GULC means here.

It's better than a straight waitlist, where there's no guarantee any adcomm will ever again even glance in your app's direction.

+1 -- I am really confused! It doesn't seem exactly like waitlisting, here is the quote:

Thank you for applying to the Juris Doctor program at Georgetown University Law Center. The record you present is a strong one, and the Committee on Admissions has chosen to postpone your final decision.

Each year, a large number of candidates submit applications to Georgetown Law early in the process. The high quality of this group makes the Committee's decisions extremely difficult. Please be aware that only a small number of early applicants have had their applications held, and a number of those applicants in past years have subsequently been admitted.

Once we have a better sense of the entire applicant pool, the Committee on Admissions will review your application again in January. No additional information is necessary, and the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) will continue to send us updates, which we will add to your file. A final decision will be mailed no later than Friday, February 26, 2010.

Thoughts??

Also, FT, RD.
