I'm trying to find the stats of the people last year who received the $104K deals (30/year and 14 for a year of housing)? I've been searching last year's forums but can't find the page. Can someone direct me to it? Sorry if it's obvious and I'm missing it.

Can it pretty much be assumed (based on last year's dates on LSN) that phone calls for ED will be in the next few days? I haven't seen too much discussion by GW ED applicants in these forums...

Since I applied ED, do you think its even worth it to try to get a transcript sent to LSAC to have them update my report? I don't know if it will be processed in time, and I don't want to have to change my app to regular decision. I don't know what to do...


Definitely call the admissions office in the morning I think.

Wait, ED is by phone?

I called the admissions office today and got the answering machine twice...have they left already for the holidays, perhaps?

Perhaps due to the snow storm, they did not go to work.

According to their campus advisory website, it seems like non-essential operations (which, surprisingly does not include law school admissions) were closed down and will only reopen tomorrow.

just sent in a super long shot application.
a bunch of strong softs, but 166/3.3 likely spells deny for me.

Thanks. And best of luck to the rest of you ED guys. I know there are a couple on this board with pretty competitive numbers.

BTW, someone was asking about the first year's housing. They are not offering that with the full ride, but they are offering priority for the Aston should you choose to live there at your own expense.

Have they informed all ED applicants who were accepted already?

Right, so is mine...apparently last year they let the 29 students who were accepted ED know right away and the rest were left to wait until January for any kind of response.

That's a a very good questions
Those applicants who do not get accpected to the ED program, will they recieve any email too or not?

No, not if you take last year as an indicator. Students accepted ED were given a phone call (this year apparently is an email) and the rest didn't hear anything until weeks later.

It was due mid-December (the 15th, to be precise), we're promised a decision by January 15.

Of course, that decision could just be to defer us to the regular pool.

I'm HOPING to get on the wait-list. Not getting flat out denied would be a small miracle. I just want my decision ASAP.
