I received an email today, as well. It was unsolicited.

I just posted this elsewhere, so I apologize for the double-post:
Does anyone know how intensive Georgetown's "Yellow" form is? I'm particularly interested in whether or not essays are required. Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I filled mine out and essays aren't required. I didn't find it to be all that intensive, honestly. Definitely not more so than the need access form.

(For what it's worth, I don't have auto-scholarship numbers for GULC, and my choice of school will depend heavily on scholarship offers.)

Yeah, I sent an e-mail tonight, so maybe they'll see it tomorrow. I'm not sure it'll even be worth it, but I guess it can't hurt.

Yes.


179... 3.8... :shock:

I'm sure you're going to be weighing some amazing options! Good luck with everything.


Thanks, I hope you're right. Good luck to you too.

I did

(and asked for A LOT) I love Gtown, but it would take a lot to get me there. So...I asked for a lot. Honesty is the best policy.

+1. The e-mail was out of the blue for me, and I asked for a lot of money. It'll be interesting to see how they respond

I also received an email out of the blue (after being held at Columbia and finally going second UR at Chicago I sort of forgot about GULC) and was pleasantly surprised.

When you guys talk about asking for a lot, are you mentioning actual dollar amounts? My main concern is the fact that I have no family/housing around DC and would probably need to pony up for a car (and all attendant payments) on top of normal LS costs, but I wasn't sure if simply stating these concerns (and letting them fill in a number) was enough or if the proper protocol was to bluntly state a price.

Did they do this same scholarship process last year? I had written off GULC after that first wave, now I'm slightly intrigued.

It isn't the last pdf on the Forms section of the Admitted Students site?

Hey, so for any of you on the non-special Preferred GULC Waiting List, do you have prior experience/sound advice on how I can best contact them in the next few weeks?

I received the email last Friday —the one saying that they will contact me in May to test my interest then. However, I will go bald pulling my hair out if not allowed to solicit them professionally with a well thought out LOCI (incl. transcript and extra curric. updates, as well as a few direct statements about how I am a perfect fit for GULC, and that they are my #1 choice without question).

So, is it OK for em to send such letter, say, in 3 weeks as opposed to waiting painfully until May? If nothing else it will help inform them of some of the many ways in which I adore their school —a need to cut down on word count prevented me from writing a GULC-specific PS.

Also, for those of you in this situation: I am in CA, and can't afford to fly to meet with an adcomm/take a tour. Is calling them/trying to set up a phone interview a good strategy. I don't want to assault these folks, but i want to be persistent and persuasive in just the right, strategic way.

Thanks!
