hmm...



I'm in the same boat... the timeline is creepily almost exact to mine. I was interview requested late feb, not even a week after my interview I went UR, now it's UR 3/17. Did you apply pt or ft?


haha good to know I have a GULC timeline twin. I applied FT. I went UR almost immediately after my interview also. I think it depends on when the alumni who interviewed you sends the ad com his or her notes about you.

P.S. I don't know if this means anything, but we also have very similar stats.



A GULC timeline AND numbers twin?! It's my lucky day... fingers crossed for both of us then! I applied FT as well. Was your interview super informal? I felt like my interviewer was more trying to sell GULC and D.C. to me more than trying to get to know more about me. He asked me for my resume but we didn't really talk about anything on it, he mostly just talked about how great GULC was and about the highlights of his experience there. I did my best to convey that I really wanted to go to GULC and that I was serious about law school and understood what I was getting myself into. But I have also heard the interview has very little impact on the final decision so I don't even know! I just want the decision.

+1. Still waiting to hear.

E-mail about an hour ago - no $$ for me. They said I'm still being considered, but basically they've got to wait for people to withdraw so they can redistribute funds.


Yeah, I think all of us in the 2nd round of scholarship interviews got that same message. To paraphrase it..."Um, sorry, we know we told you that we'd have a scholarship decision already, but we've run into some trouble. You see, it seems we distributed all of our meager scholarship funds already! Our bad. We'll have to wait and see what we can give you later. Let us know if you're still interested."

Let me put it this way...I'm still very interested in Gtown, but c'mon! We were told we'd have an answer on Monday. Now, two days later, we're basically told "whoops! we already handed out all of our scholarships!" The interview turns out to be an excercise in futility. Then, we're asked let them know if we're still interested. Of course, we're still interested! That's why we responded to the request to be interviewed in the first place!


I think they put the wrong dates on the e-mail. It never made any sense for them to give that date and give the early offers until the 1st of April to accept the first round offers.

Does anyone know anything about scholarships at GT? I was accepted a while ago and haven't received anything, does this mean I am not being considered?

The GULC status checker is officially mocking me. UR date updated 3/15, 3/16, 3/17, and now 3/18. JFC! Is this a good sign or should I brace myself for the coming ding?

It depends on what your decision is. Admitted students get a letter in the mail in a small square envelope (so don't freak out if the envelope is small). Many admitted students have had success requesting password and username on the Admitted Students site after DR and gotten in and found out that way.

I believe Rejections and WL come through email.

Ugh, I don't get whats up with my app. Seems like everyone who interviewed went back UR a few days after they interviewed, but mine has been a month now and still is at 'committee requested interview'. Called today and they say it's normal yada-yada. Anyone in a similar position?

Edit: Lol, after calling my status miraculously changed to UR. =)

Two questions.

I went DR yesterday...but no email...and I cannot get into the admitted students site. Based on previous admits, am I in or out?

Do all admitted students receive interviews before a DR?

Thanks!!! :mrgreen:

In off of spwl today. Small envelope via snail mail. Finally got ASW to create a pw/username today but it doesn't login yet. Also, for those with suffixes, mine only worked as "[last name], Jr." WITH the punctuation.

I withdrew today after getting notification that GULC wasn't offering me any merit aid (with merit scholarship offers from T10, Gtown would have to make a really competitive offer for me to consider...but they didn't). So I hope that my spot goes to someone who really wants to go!

What am embarrassing game for the Hoyas and the Big East in general.

That conference seems to have been massively overrated.

Scholarship offer today! Hugely honored... and now it's going to be a tough decision.
It's a little less than the two schools I was choosing between before today's news, but... it's Georgetown. Hmm...

Nope. Someone called and I guess they're gonna send out notifications in early April.

Congrats!!! but I am so freakin jealous of you!

Were you a scholarship alternate? I saw on LSN that someone with scholarship withdrew so maybe that freed up some funds!
