To update the thread... just got an email for the preferred waitlist. I was held in December.

Regular WL (after interview + hold + almost 4 months of waiting). That's a real sucker punch to the gut.

Well then, they obviously hate me along with the rest of the T14.

Ugh. Does it seem like most 'held' candidates are ending up on the waitlist?

After waiting so long for any movement (UR 12/11 -> 2/22 today), I'm now hoping to hear no news that the mailman doesn't bring.

It isn't a soft ding. I was placed on the regular WL at the end of March during last year's cycle, then suddenly bumped up to the super preferred WL without sending a LOCI (disclaimer: I'm a URM). You still have a shot at Georgetown.

Is it safe to assume that if you went DR today, didn't receive a WL email, and cannot log in to the admitted students site, then you're dinged? Thanks.

Went DR today (2/22). Applied 11/24, went complete 1/5 (took December LSAT), went under review 2/5 and then again 2/18. Both numbers above 75th, so I'm somewhat optimistic, but the same was true at Duke and I got waitlisted, so I'm not taking it for granted.

When did you go DR?


Haven't gone DR yet. However, my status for GULC has been "under review" since december. Then, last week, they changed the "status date" from a date in mid-December to 02/18 but the actual status still says "under review." I'm both confused and frying my nerves. I'm by no means an auto-admit. I've got a GPA and LSAT that are both (very) slightly above their 25%.

oi, WL as well... what a joke, after stringing me along with an interview, a hold, then endless under-review status updates

Immediately emailed them back to remove me from consideration... I probably should have emailed them earlier, I had no intention of going there once I got into a better option

Best of luck everyone...

Mind explaing what the "preferred WL" is and how they indicate a preferred vs. regular. Sorry if this is basic TLS knowledge.

Is there really a "super preferred WL"?

I tried to logon onto the admitted students website by hitting the no password button and requesting one. It was emailed to my email address and I just logged in successfully. Does this mean I am in for sure, or did I circumvent the system somehow in my feverish frenzy??????

Whoops. I kept clicking the 'Forgot Password' button instead of the 'No Password' button. Looks like it worked and I'm in.

Sent 12/30, Complete 1/5, UR 2/5--->2/17. DR 2/22.

There was last year. Look at Lizface Killah's post about a third of the way down the page.

Crazy. Anyone know, with a reasonable degree of certainty, how many WLs Georgetown creates? And, if so, the rank of said WLs. Thanks!

Waitlisted today via email.

Somewhat surprised even though I got this hint since it was taking so long, but my numbers seemed to qualify me 169/3.8 and I'm in at Duke and Michigan(so I probably wasn't going to attend anyway). Proof that theres a lot of randomness

There's a regular WL, a preferred WL, then a "small select group within the preferred WL." As of Wednesday there were 20 people in the select group according to a GULC adcomm, but they've added quite a few since then.

Waitlisters, come on over to the GULC WL thread.

20 in the select group? seems like there have been 20 added in the last couple of weeks alone

Yeah it seemed low to me too. I noticed a bunch in the last few days but hadn't really noticed many before that, but maybe I wasn't paying close attention.
