Out of curiosity, are you guys all FT applicants?

I'm a part-timer. Got low numbers (3.3, 165) but good softs. And I live and work about two blocks from the school. Hopefully that will help. It makes SO much sense for me to go to GT.

Is there anyone with DR:3/24 that has received a rejection/waitlist email since yesterday? And is there anyone in this category who has been able to successfully log into the admitted students website or request log-in info? I'M SERIOUSLY STARTING TO PULL MY HAIR OUT!

Holy potatoes I'm finally UR (again... but for the first time since Feb LSAT made it go back to 'complete')! Here's hoping for a speedy decision.

I heard if you try enough to log onto the admitted students page they'll reverse your rejection/waitlist into a straight up admittance due to profound interest in GT

Its probably a solid 3 or 4 miles. Also there is no metro stop in Georgetown because the residents wanted to keep the riffraff out, or at least that's how the story goes. But you can take the orange/blue lines to Foggy Bottom and walk or take the Circulator or take the "blue bus" from Dupont or Rosslyn stations.


foggy bottom and dupont circle seem like places I would consider living.


Dupont Circle has an awesome night life. I like that area a lot. Foggy bottom is good too, but less exciting - probably less expensive too though.

Both of those places will cost an arm and a leg.

Saying you want to live in dupont circle is like saying you want to live in Soho....

Edit: of course financial considerations do not apply to everybody

You've got some crazy mad options, so congrats on whatever you decide. Sorry about Cooley, though. Try harder next time. :twisted:

The USPS needs to work faster! Put someone in a car with that letter and drive it to NYC!


Yeah! stupid slow post office!!! and stupid slow google mail servers!(...it's clearly not Gtown causing the hold up. they're much too lovely.)

1/12 was my first and only UR. Wonder what this all means for me. I know I'm a long shot (PT 163 4.0), so I dunno.

doesn't sound like such a long shot if you got the special preferred group =)

I just got done explaining to a gtown prof exactly what that was and why it was so ideal.

Great. Since I use Gmail too, now I'm paranoid that Gmail is slowing it down or deleting it for us.


don't be silly, google's instant. it's faster than you could hand a letter to yourself. it's faster than you can think. and you think super duper fast.

also I'd just like to point out that the longer it takes for us to get an email, the better. as in, never is ideal.

because the PT program is smaller they may be more sensitive about overenrolling and want to see what their yield is like. sounds promising though!

I agree. I think. I still am not sure about the snail mail vs. email and what that means for my chances thing.


I asked Kim earlier. she said acceptance is snail mail, reject and WL are email.

So are all just sitting here waiting to make sure we DON'T get sent emails from GT and banking on acceptance letters, because I thought the general consensus was that we are all WL people? I feel like email isn't normally a two day process, so what exactly are all us DR 3/24 people waiting for at this point?

saint c, kim's a girl who got in already... she's cool and is my go-to person for all questions =) she's the one who's at the gtown admitted students thing right now.

you're right, email isn't normally a two day process.... and it seems that the rejected people were informed immediately. but no one has been told about WL yet (at least that has posted on this thread), and I think throughout the cycle it's taken them a few days to send out emails. Maybe they have to decide priority v. other waitlists at this point?

we can't really make sure we don't get emails... we're just thinking that we should be happy to wait since basically it takes longer to get snailmail than email, even if they don't send either until next week. but I think we expect WL. Acceptance would have us freaking out.... rejection would have us feeling a lot of dejection.... right?
