Hey, I know this is not the right place, but I have a question for other GULC applicants...

I have a very nicely formatted resume. the application says what to include and mine is right on the money. But it says max 2 pages, and mine is perfectly formatted (currently) as one page. should i lengthen/add descriptions of the things I have on there and utilize the full space theyve allowed or should I keep it nice and good looking like a regular resume, just 1 page? PM me if you dont want this to get out of hand with responses in this thread...thanks guys, and congratulations to all of you who've been accepted, I hope that I can join you next year

I was accepted and only submitted one page. If it fits on one page and you're happy with it that way, don't fluff it up by expanding it. I think the two page requirement is more for people who actually have enough to fill up two pages. If you can get yours on one, more power to you.

Decision rendered on 11/2 but I'm studying abroad and my parents haven't been answering the phone. Ahh!

Don't worry... if the people who were accepted last week are any indication we won't be getting any mail correspondence for a few days.

Did anyone get scholarship information yet? Or does that come much later in the cycle?

So, "Decision rendered 10/26" folks, anyone in New England or NYC? When should I be expecting a letter?

Sorry, should have been clearer. I went to decision rendered yesterday, just trying to anticipate when I should get excited for the mail...

Damn. GULC seems like the only school that's liable to send anything out for the next couple weeks. Let's see some movement this week Georgetown! C'mon baby. (Congrats to those who've got in.)

FYI - I was "decision rendered" on 10/26 and live in California. I got my letter on Saturday, but I believe protokurios or some other SoCal person got his letter on Friday.

No. Our acceptance letters explicitly state that "our admitted students website will be available in late December."

I was not planning to apply because of low #'s. Ive recently considered the idea of PT transfer to FT. Or just straight up PT. #'s are 163/3.51. Chances PT or FT? Should I even spend the $80 app fee? Thanks.
