Maybe their goal is to get us all worked up so that we feel like Georgetown is the ONLY place in town.....then when we get the acceptance we are so relieved we immediately withdraw applications everywhere else out of sheer gratefulness.

Or maybe we all suck.

Nah. We're good.[/quote]

I feel their may be some truth to this, especially as this would coincide with the emails going out to recent admits today informing them of a 10% rise in the application pool. This also may be an effort to offset any negative perceptions about GULC in regard to the departure of their Dean Alex Aleinikoff, something that was announced just yesterday.

That being said, I think it would make a lot of sense to release rejection emails late on a Friday afternoon as the weekend would give applicants a chance to "chill" which would result in a decrease in the amount of time admissions would have to spend on the phone with irate applicants. I did not say this was the most humane approach, but I can understand it from a practical (cold-hearted :twisted: ) business decision perspective.

I don't think there can really be a consensus about the 12/01 group because its like, all URMs, splitters, PT, and EDs.

Just got the email with an invitation to the admitted students reception in January. Anyone planning to go to that? I'm not sure if I can make it. :(

From the gulc ed thread, people who got wl/reject last week were e-mailed about it over the weekend.

I got it too. But I've been swamped with work. Worked on a paper from 2am-1:30pm. So tired right now. Have group meetings to attend in hours. Want to die.

After weeks of waiting for anything, anything at all, I'm now too tired to even obsess over it.

I will say this though. I think we will go DR on Tuesday.

Do they email all WL/rejects or only ED folks?

me too. i'm also unsure if i can make it (gotta check the schedule), but whether i consider going or not will be significantly dependent on what happens with my other apps between now and then. i'm definitely interested in checking gtown out though.

Same here. I'll definitely try to go, though. Especially since it's always fun to go to DC.

Small envelope, shaped like a greeting card or invitation.

Oh, then you should definitely go if you can! I've been there a few times and it's definitely a cool city. And Georgetown has a surprisingly legitimate campus, too.

Yeah, I've heard great things about the GULC campus. I am a little disappointed that it's so far away from the main campus though, as that just looks gorgeous.

Ehh, the main campus isn't connected to the Metro rail.

lolz. Are people at all worried about Georgetown's endowment crisis? Under $1 billion = not good.

gtown campus sucks. Sorry, but omg, it take forever to walk from the metro (as compared to uva law). The only good part is that it's near the supreme court.

Huh? It's a 3-5 minute walk to the metro from GULC.
