IE, if it works for you, you are definitely in, but if it does not work for you, you are not necessarily out since they may not have added you yet.

At least, that's what I'm telling myself. Since my decision has been rendered six days in the future, anything seems possible.
:lol:


what do you mean "decision has been rendered six days in the future"?

Hey all of you who have decision rendered, but don't know what the decision is yet... good luck. I can definitely imagine the anxiety you must be feeling, but at least you know the wait is almost over! Would any of you mind sharing if you are PT or FT and what day you originally went under review? Thanks!

Well, it sounds like we're all in the same boat, at least for now. My numbers are kind of low for Georgetown, so I guess a rejection won't be shocking, although I'm holding out hope for an acceptance..or at least waitlist!

Question for those that applied to both programs:

Assuming you are rejected from full time and then considered for part time seperately, does your program time change from "both to PT" along with your UR date being updated, or is there no way to tell?

+1. I never actually saw my status change, I hadn't checked it in like 5 days when I received my letter. I went from complete to acceptance, so I cannot imagine what that feels like. I hope you all get accepted <3!

For people that got waitlisted or rejected from Georgetown, did you receive an e-mail the same day that your status checker changed to "decision rendered"?

Anyone else go UR twice? Initially 3/4, but it updated to 3/10 this afternoon. Hopefully DR coming soon, although they may as well save themselves the trouble if they plan on withholding money :?

I went DR today as well, after being UR 2/19 and 3/3.

Would anyone else who went DR today be willing to share their stats?

Yes, this happened to several of us last week. We went from UR 2/19 to UR 3/3. And I got DR today.

Yeah, I'm 167/3.38 (2 majors, 1 minor, mostly very hard courses, etc...) This isn't looking encouraging though. I know Georgetown is a ridiculous reach but I was really hoping for a miracle...

I have no hope.. but props to you guys for keeping at it =) if this was last cycle I'd think there would be a whole lot more of a chance.

Does anyone know how work experience is viewed by GULC? I have 2 years WE from a "good company," but don't know if that would get my anywhere.

My numbers are almost exactly the same. I hate to say it, but it looks like we are in a batch of reject/waitlists.

I thought I saw a DR today who looked like an in. If you guys are reject/waitlists something's hinky - I'm 170/3.34 and updated 3/10 but no DR...

Haha, I have hope. I just don't want to be too let down if I get rejected.

*sigh* I've been UR in Jan, then Feb, and now again in March (3/10). The anticipation is killing me! I'm only looking at schools in the DC area, so my options are limited. I've been accepted to all the other schools in the area that I've applied to, just waiting to hear back from GULC. If it's a NO, I wish they would just tell me so I can stop obsessively checking my inbox and mailbox!

I've also been under review 3 times and am expecting a ding. I guess it's good that they've kept me around this long... but I'd rather just know and get it over with.

+1.

Only looking at DC schools and obsessing over getting into GULC. I'd be paying full price to go to GW and that isn't worth it, so I'm really banking on GULC coming through. Other option is to go to UVa and commute home every weekend, but that is something I'm definitely not looking forward to doing for 3 years.

Complete 1/5, UR 2/5, UR 3/10.
