That follows my sentiment that GULCs admissions staff has no heart whatsoever.

I'm honestly sort of relieved. We had a whole week to come to terms with the fact that we most likely weren't in for good news. Also, we had a week to see the "real" Georgetown and how it honestly functions behind the brochures and pretty pictures. The school had dropped pretty far down my list over this past week so I'm much happier to get it over with than get some eternal waitlist. Though I was convinced I had a solid shot at getting in as a 167, 3.5x URM. VERY few URM's with those numbers were rejected in the past few years, and I wrote a very specific and honest "Why G-Town" statement. So, I'm surprised, yet relieved.

Rejection via email, but I knew Georgetown was a super reach for me.

Why robin? You'll get in somewhere.

I've been rejected/waitlisted at 5 places so far...Unless Washington and Lee or William and Mary pull through (and it looks like they won't) I'm not going to law school..... the way this cycle looks i'm not going anywhere.

I don't know what to say. I spoke with Mr.Cornblatt personally when I visited the school and he was really thrilled by my story and said I was a strong applicant. Couldn't he have at least told me the truth???

Also, I'm glad I don't have to follow this thread anymore and piece together a bunch of BS from the group of inept fools that run the G-Town admissions office. Guys, think about how poorly that school must be run. The admissions office is the "face" of the school and the part that sells the product. Typically, these sorts of offices make the school look and seem better than it really is. So if their admissions office is this shitty, just imagine how poorly run the overall product must be? I'm not gonna let this get me down. Pretty much everyone on here will have no shortage of great opportunities and choices in the near future. So keep those heads up.

Lol at you thinking that anyone at G-Town would give a straight story. Sorry about the rejection though.

Is that the new or old dean since apparently their previous one left on 12/2 to go to the UN? If it's the new guy, I wouldn't be surprised if the 7-day wait was because they needed to reupload the new signature (and maybe resign a whole bunch of acceptances or something).


No the Cornblatt is the Dean for Admissions..the other dude was the Dean for the whole school

Yeah, I pretty much knew I wasn't in from the beginning but I think that its pretty horrible to make us wait a week for a standard form letter.

Ding for me too. I would have been mightily surprised had I received anything other than an outright rejection.

I am bummed it took them just over a week from decision to sending a very short e-mail rejecting me. It seems unnecessarily stressful. At least UGA simply updated me via the status checker. Saved me some worry.

Keep the faith Robin!!!

I'm sure you applied to some good safeties (or will shortly).

Just remember,

It's not over till the *** lady sings.....


I'm sure numerous people on this forum are having these very same thoughts/doubts.

Your an inspiration to us all.

Keep the faith Robin!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


Thanks uganik, but my safeties haven't accepted me yet and have accepted people with lower or similar numbers.

I feel as if all my hard work for the past two years has gone down the drain. I'm sorry guys for being a debby downer right now, but this really hurts because i was told by numerous people that I had a great shot. IDK what to do right now, I don't know if I can take the LSAT again because I don't know if I can get my accommodations paperwork in on time. I'm sooo numb right now....
