They like you, but don't love you. There's something in your app (other than the numbers) that concerns them for one reason or another. Maybe your essay, maybe the LORs, who knows. It's not a rejection though, so good luck!

chaoticait, I have almost your exact #s and they wanted to interview me. STill have no idea though, maybe they are wary of our #s? Seems like lower #s are getting accepted though.

I'm gonna make a GULC interview thread, so we get a feel for numbers and decisions on the interview crowd.

I'm having trouble seeing any real pattern in the UR groupings, except that splitters are more represented UR 12/9 and there are a few auto-admits in 12/10. I'm not sure I learned much from compiling this information.

Nice work. Soooo, neither day seems to be particularly higher-scoring than the other.

Dear Chaoticait:

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.
On behalf of the Committee, we appreciate your patience and continued interest in Georgetown.

Sincerely,

XXXXX
...am I the only one who received this? Anyone have any ideas what this means?

(168, 3.91, non URM)

You're on hold. Better than a waitlist, worse than an acceptance (obviously).



I received this as well about two weeks ago and posted it here. Don't blame you for not hunting through thread. As far as I can tell, you, me and only one other person on here has made mention of this letter so it seems they are being truthful that it is a small group.

I have a 167 with a 163 retake (UGH I SUCK) and I figure that's the problem. I have strong softs, if that means anything, and in this case I think it might.

I 'd like to interpret this to mean that they will not reject us because they could have just done it outright. But they could just be stringing us along. Surely they are just waiting around to make sure no one better comes along before making a long term commitment to our relationship.

I've e-mailed some with the 12/10 UR group and the numbers don't look good so far. IF this is a batch process, we're out.

Pretty sure these people are IN:

177/3.6
175/3.98
173/3.51

And unless I misread, all are UR 12/10. I suppose it's possible that these are YP-WLs. These are T6 numbers.

Wait a minute, I don't believe you can really guess the "batch" in this case. There's a perfectly good chance that 12/9 and 12/10 UR's will be DR'd at the same time in which case figuring out the batch isn't going to be all that helpful. Besides, it's pretty clear that waited ti'll the last minute for ED's. So many people are going to go out that I bet it's guaranteed to be a mixed bag.

That being said, I would consider it a miracle if I got in.

Actually, looking through the LSN graphs for the last few years, there are regularly a dozen autoadmits who get waitlisted.

If all of those applied to every T10, they would get into at least 3. If I had those numbers, I'd be looking higher than GT.

Got busy and had to submit my application a little later than I wanted to, went complete 11/30. This wait is going to be awful/kill my productivity at work.

I'm pretty sure that we can't predict anything from the UR batches.
