Hey Guys!

Does attending an information session and tour (like the one scheduled for this Friday, February 5) affect one's chances at admission?

Thanks!

Congratulations! My status checker says DR 2/1 so hopefully that means good news for me too.

this is curious...

Current Status: Application Under Review
Current Status Date: 2/4/2010

(from UR 1/11/10)

They seem to have post dated my review... I suppose that means I won't be getting a decision tomorrow.

Good luck! I hadn't really been checking my status checker (I know, BLASPHEMY!) so I'm not sure when mine changed. When I saw the envelope, I was like, have I been rejected?! I'm sure your's is coming soon, because my letter is dated and postmarked 2/1. I'm in New York so it's a short trip from DC.

Plus, there was a nice handwritten note from Dean Cornblatt on mine that specifically cites something from my personal statement. Do they always do that? That's a nice touch, Georgetown. <3

EDIT: Sorry, for anyone wondering I'm 171/3.7 and non-URM.

Hey thanks. I figure I need to be pretty ballsy to get through this cycle. There's actually a pretty good deli in Tysons Corner (site of very large DC-area shopping mall) called Chutzpah, but I've never been. Big difference between NY and DC = lack of good deli/pizza/bagels but I guess that would be a discussion for another place.

Application under review 2/3. Does anyone know how long it usually takes to go from "Under Review" to "Decision"? Are acceptances released via mail or email?

Also, what is Georgetown's policy towards waitlisted students? Do they ever take students off the waitlist or is it a "soft rejection" like other schools? LOCIs help?

mine was under review for about 3 months (i had an interview during this process). I think it depends on the strength of your application.

Are you actually DR 2/3? Or did your status checker just update to "Application Under Review" again like a couple others mentioned?

Just noticed my UR date updated to 2/4 after originally being 12/10. Finally some movement....not sure if this is good or bad.

I've been Under Review since 1/7/10, is this abnormally long? It seems strange. Thanks.

I can't decide whether the 2/3 batch is an acceptance batch or a priority waitlist batch. Hoping for acceptance.
