Wow this thread has grown quickly.

I received the we-are-still-waiting-on-everyone-else's-app-to-see-how-you-stack-up email, let you know by the end of Feb.

Is the general feeling that this will either result in an acceptance or a waitlist? Can I consider myself not rejected or is that too optimistic?

Thanks, I started to go back through but it was becoming too tedious.

Doesn't 12/7 look like the mass ED acceptance date? Some of the people here have great numbers.

12/7 will hear before 12/1 and it will be tomorrow.

the day you are in the clear is the day when at least somebody gets a rejection and you don't..otherwise everyone (rejects and admits) are in the same boat and the only thing you can predict is that you don't know anything.

Maybe, but it seems strange that they would hand out ED dings before acceptances.

They are probably handing out ED decisions (so they are mixed) by date of completeness because they must get them done by 12/15, reliable theory?

Plus the guy who I talked to at the admissions office today said everything for the 12/1 group was sent out.

I don't buy it. Either he's lying or too lazy to check and just talking out of his as. We should've at least seen some e-mail rejections. If they had been sent out, well, people would have them now. My realistic assessment: We are just another batch of rejects and they just don't give a sht, because Georgetown simply is the kind of school that will treat you like crap when you don't help them in their desperate attempt to hold on to that #14 in the USNR

I have no idea dude, I just called and that's straight from the horse's mouth! It sounded like he was sick of getting phone calls. Their office is probably behind so mail=behind.

Me: I was wondering when I could expect to hear back
Him: Everything has been sent out.
Me: Is this for all decisions on 12/1 or just me?
Him: Everyone's. I can't tell you your decision on the phone, thanks for calling :hangs up:
Me: Well Goodbye, %$^#$%%$^&$@%&@$ and have a nice day

My reasoning is as follows: there are 3 people on LSN with 12/1 DR dates that are accepted who received the mail already. Not sure if they went decision on 12/1 or just received their mail at that date. However, those 3 have 170+ and great GPAs, or are URMs. Acceptances seem to be received faster.

The rest are below are all 160s with so so GPA. Or great GPAs but low LSATs... and have not received their decisions...

the previous 11/30 DR all have great LSATs and GPAs, as well as most of the 12/2 DR dates which many of whom have already received their mail as well.

I apologize for being pessimistic, but with a 168/3.1 and a 12/1 DR myself... it doesn't look good.


All of the people that have decision as 12/1 on lsn either don't say their DR date or have a DR date of 11/30 so it appears that there is no one on here or lsn who went DR on 12/1 who has been accepted or rejected. A few people seemed to get defer emails a few days after 12/1 but I don't recall any of them saying they were from 12/1 either.

Also for the ED people it appears that other than the few accepts with good numbers on lsn, there haven't been any decisions yet. Of course I'm ed and 12/1 so I might be biased towards hoping that.

Perhaps they are trying a new method of communication such as smoke signals. :P

Actually I bet they just sprinkle in a little anthrax into the rejection letters. Prevents the flood of angry/confused/desperate phone calls.

The fact that while everyone who gets accept decisions whether its 11/30 or 12/2 gets them very quickly seem to be a sign. The 12/1 is lagging for a reason and im afraid that its either a rejection or a waitlist.

I am a non-ED with a 12/1 date as well.

I'd be interested to know if there are any GULC dual degree applicants on here? Perhaps JD/MSFS or JD/MPH?

If you believe that all reject/WL = email and all acceptance = snail mail, and you believe what Georgetown said about having sent everything out, then you have to believe that all 12/1 DRs got accepted. I find the conclusion to be extremely unlikely, so it seems like Georgetown hasn't sent everything out.

This thread is so long it's to the point of no longer being useful. Did people go DR today?
