With a deferment, your application is guaranteed another look with the RD batches.

With a waitlist, there's no guarantee that the committee will ever see your application again.

Neither has a stellar chance of admittance, but one is certainly better than the other.

I was a little confused - glad someone else's says this as well.

Yes, I have the same thing. I think our acceptance letters are in the mail ;)


Check the admitted students site and you'll know for sure.

Were you able to access the site right after your status changed to DR?

I didn't try until a few days after actually, however I'm sure if you're admitted you'll be able to. They wouldn't bother putting any kind of delay on it in case someone got their letter sooner then expected. It would be pretty frustrating to get the letter and then have the site tell you that you can't log on.

Yay! GP, you went DR? Definitely means we're in. My status says the same as everyone elses with the two dates and I interviewed back on 11/19. Finally.

I didn't get a rejection or waitlist email, however I can't log on to the admitted students site. so I'm not assuming anything...

By the way, where did you (whoever it was) see that only rejections and waitlists are via email?

PT. DR 12/21.

Are there any rejections in this batch? I hope not. Going to sweat through Christmas.

It's cruel to reject people right before Christmas.

Those who can't log in to the admitted students website, I wouldn't worry. I doubt Georgetown's system is like Michigans (or others) that lets you log in before you get your letter. Just wait it out.

If you look at LSN, all of the rejections I saw (I didn't look at all of them, and not everyone reports this) were done via e-mail. So I don't see why they would reject us via snail mail.

Especially right before Christmas. If I were in your shoes, I would be thinking that this situation looks favorable (though we all know how dangerous that can be). Best of luck to you all!

Held at Georgetown...what does this mean exactly? They're not going to look at my application until late Jan? Is this better or worse than a waitlist?
I was RD, not ED too.
