Just got onto the 'preferred' waitlist-- :cry:

is everyone sending LOCIs? Only I applied like last month so there isn't really anything new to add except...more begging. Or do you guys think this is really more like a "hold" at other schools.

Applied PT, 168/3.8.

You're in!




I hope you are right. I will be nervous till I get that mail though. How long after DR did yours come?


I was in the exact same spot as you. Decision rendered, was able to log into the Admitted Students site....then got my acceptance letter in the mail a week later. :)

Congrats!

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


Now you're making me nervous. I have a slightly higher LSAT but similar GPA, and I got waitlisted at Duke (though I got in at NYU and Columbia, so you're right about the randomness).

Submitted mid-Jan. DR 2/22. Able to log on to Admitted Students website. Good news, I guess?

In the same boat as you, and I'm assuming I'm in.

I got on the Preferred waitlist today. Applied in mid November and my numbers are 175, 2.98 with 12 years of military and civilian work experience. There are a couple of T14s that I haven't heard from but I think I would go to GULC if I got in. I am also waitlisted at Virginia. Does anyone know if I will improve my chances if I send a letter stating that I will unhesitatingly accept an offer? I am considering sending one to GULC.

If you can say that and color it up with some reasons and specific details, I believe you will have come up with an ideal LOCI.

Hmm so if I applied ED (complete 1/25, UR 2/1 --> UR 2/19), and was not in the DR 2/22 batch, I'm assuming there's a ding on the way today or tomorrow...

Preferred waitlist via e-mail yesterday, 2/22 -- 3.84/168. Already in at Cornell and Michigan and WLed at Chicago and Columbia...withdrawing via e-mail today. Good luck to all.

My friend is able to log into the Georgetown website today. Does that mean he's "definitely" accepted??

We both made plans to attend Wake Forest's reception on Monday, (March 1) but he'll need to cancel his hotel room "if" he's accepted to Georgetown. Will they tell you if you call them?

I'm still waiting, but I applied later.

1) Some people have been invited for scholarship-related interviews, and
2) There's a "yellow sheet" that will be on the admitted students website for the rest of us to fill out.

Is #1 the only way to get major $$? Is #2 also for merit aid, or just need-based? Am I missing other elements of Georgetown's $ formula? (I submitted FAFSA and NeedAccess forms a few weeks ago.)

Thanks!


+1. Would like to know this as well. Are the interviews for named scholarships or something? What kind of $$ are those schollys for?

And for above poster, I believe the yellow sheet is for merit aid. As you already know, Georgetown looks at the Need Access form for any institutional need based aid.

Do I need to complete the Need Access form "before" I know if I've been accepted? I've heard it's a bear to complete. Is it?

Murph: I have similar stats (although your softs are waaaaaay better) and was thinking about doing the same thing. Possibly getting WL/in at Northwestern is my only hangup. I'm visiting tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes.

Also, is the Need Access for only for FULL TIME applicants or Part Time too?

Anyone out there still have an upcoming interview? I have one on Friday. Should I be expecting a long wait for a decision (April)? Kind of weird to have an interview so late in the cycle, no?

I had an interview a few weeks back. It took 2 weeks from the day I interviewed until my status went back to "Under Review", and then I was accepted within 24 hours of that. The hand-written note on my letter mentioned specifically that my interviewer spoke very highly of me, so make sure you nail that interview.

I'd be curious to hear if anyone else who was deferred from ED to January or February with the note "a number of deferred applicants are later admitted" has heard back yet.

Have any more merit scholarship invitations been sent out other than the batch a week or so ago?

See above, and also the GULC Limbo thread...a bunch of us have been WL'd (or PWL'd).

I went DR yesterday, and now my roommate says I have a postcard-sized envelope. I live in the DC area, so if they mailed it yesterday it's believable that it could get there by today. What does a postcard-sized envelope mean?
