Well, I finally got the courage to sign up and log in. It worked. With my numbers I would be very surprised if I don't get accepted, and since a few others on here weren't able to log in, I'm inclined to think it might be legit? Squee!

My second complete email indicated that they have "begun the review process." Meaning that now that the EDers are done, they're beginning to get to the RD apps.

I tried it and I was able to log in. But not so certain this means I'm in. I couldn't log in at first because I was just typing the number portion of my L#. For those of you who could not log in, did you try both with and without the letter L for your account name? It might be that those who couldn't log in weren't typing the L before the number.

Yup, tried with the L and no luck.

Hmm, I wonder why they wouldn't just email us to let us know we're in, if we were in. Of course, it did take a while for me to even receive notification that my app was complete.

My guess is they're trying to "reduce anxiety" by sending them in batches. They JUST admitted the first (only?) set of EDs. Maybe we'll hear officially after New Years?

At first I tried entering my b-day without the "/" between the month/day/4digityear. Without the / in the b-day and the L on the lsac number it seems that you cannot get in.

Although most of the people who have successfully signed on to the GW admitted students site have had LSAT or gpa at or near 75% of at least one of the two categories, I'm still feeling like this might be a fluke.

I applied ED, so I suppose those of us who've applied ED might have a higher chance of already having a decision made about us, but either way, when I return to the site and tried to sign onto different parts of the site, it did not accept the name and password that I created when I first got signed onto the site.

Well anyways, my hopes were high for a while. The EDers will just have to wait until the 15th to notice of deferral and then hopefully they'll give us a RD decision soon after that. Many of the ED applicants seemed to get a RD back by the 15th too. If I'm not wrong, we're not guaranteed a RD decision by any certain deadline if we're not awarded the full scholarship ( Jan 15th is the merely the date before which they must notify us about the full scholarship decision).

Thanks for your input!

Yeah, I really doubt that they would've rendered a decision for me so quickly. I applied early Nov, RD. Now, hopefully, they aren't like Dean Z at Michigan and see that I logged in and then get royally annoyed before they make a decision on my app!

Self selection is obviously a problem here, but of the people that have tried it and posted(20 people), only 5 have not been able to get in.

With the 75% acceptance rate that we're seeing, it looks more like a "they're looking at my app already"/ "they're not looking at my app yet" checker.

I'm mostly convinced that this is a fluke.

I was an ED app, so I'd think they would have looked at my app already; therefore, I doubt that "being able to log in" = "they've looked at your app yet."

And one person called to ask if that really meant they were in. Turns out they checked WAY too much.

One student talked to Dean Z about it and relayed a message saying to basically stop checking as they don't like it and can tell how often you check. The message got all muddled and Dean Z made an account just to clarify things (that it's fine to check the admitted students site but it takes away the joy they want people to feel when they receive the acceptance package in the mail).

IIRC

EDIT: I'm not sure if this is what some people were referencing, but it might explain some posters' hesitation in checking.

Ah, cool thanks.

Though I think the greater joy would be in hearing as early as possible, but what do I know, I haven't gotten in anywhere yet :?

Can't log in. My numbers are low for GW, and I only applied PT.

Hi all, I received an e-mail from the GW admissions office in response to this issue. See text below.

Thank you for your message.

Just so you know, we have looked into this, and apparently there may be a technical glitch that is under review by our information technology staff.

In any case, you will hear directly from the Admissions Office regarding your decision status within the next few weeks, at which time, if you have been admitted, you will be invited to log on to the admitted student portal.


So, in the interest of not causing a panic and crashing GW's sites, maybe we should lay off the login attempts and let things run their course, eh?

thanks for sending the email. I still am going to go with positive thinking, the "glitch" is that we were able to find out and log-on without knowing about the site/acceptance. Michigan said the same thing, that getting into the site was no indicator.

Now, watch me get rejected :wink:
