3rd try Feb LSAT taker here, applied as my HUGE reach to Georgetown PT. 167/3.1, 4 years out of college with WE.

went UR for the first time on 3/10, did the binding decision option. so if they want to offer me a PT place they can do so with 0 aid and get soooo much money from me. :? EEP.

fingers crossed for magic.

Hey there. Did you have them hold your app until the Feb scores came in? I did, and I'm currently at "complete 2/19", even though I submitted in early December and was UR several times in Jan and Feb.

yeah i did, i emailed everyone i applied with and asked and got confirmations. i get the impression that the actual scores sent from LSAC come in batches and dont come quickly sometimes - some schools got mine very quickly and some were still waiting when i called early this week. maybe call and confirm with them?

When you do it just get to know them. Ask about the weather and how they like it down there. Then they'll be like "oh there's that sweet kim who asks about my grandkids!"


rooting for you, bryn =)

LOL

"Dear Georgetown Admissions,

How are you? I'm glad the snow melted, I'm following you on twitter, Dean Cornblatt! You're so funny. I can't wait to see you for ASW! It's going to be awesome! How's the fam? Good, I hope. Just to let you know, I am really in need of scholarship money. I will name my first born Georgetown if I can get some.

Thanks!

PS You're really cool!"

lollll I was thinking more along the lines of

"Good morning,
I hope this message finds you well. <insert substance here>

What are your personal experiences? What do you think of the neighborhood? If I decide to raise my family in the area, would it be a good place?" <-- see? segue into them talking about their grandkids.

Yup as soon as the scores were released I emailed a human being at the admissions office (not the generic mailbox) who confirmed that they received my score and lifted the hold. I guess it wouldnt hurt to follow up with her. Thanks!

Does anyone have an idea how long it will take to get a scholarship offer if we got the March 2nd "do you want to be considered" email?

I went DR on 3/8, I submitted my application very late, like February :-), and went UR two weeks ago or so. I was able to log on to the Admitted Students site, so I'm pretty sure I'm in from what I've read on this forum. I'm a 175/3.55, plus a 4.0 in an MA program abroad. Haven't heard anything about any scholarship, of course. I'd love one, but I'm pretty sure my late application rules it out.

You submitted your app in Feb and got a decision already? Nice!

I applied 01/31 (right before the deadline) , went complete 02/15, and then just went UR on 03/10.

I'm hoping for good news! Congrats on your (hopeful) admission!

Is the general consensus that the longer you are UR, the more likely you are to be WL/rejected? Or is that me seeing the glass half-empty. I went UR 2/19 with no updates.

Can anyone who's already been accepted, or waitlisted chime in on how long it took between seeing DR on the status check and getting your notification?

So your waitlist email was sent on the same date listed for Decision Rendered on the status checker?

Mine were too. Although a couple batches had to wait a week for their WL/dings. Hopefully they've got those bugs worked out.
