I'm thinking this also. I was going to call this week, let me know if you get an answer from the adcomms about it.
Called the admissions office today. In order to change to ED you email them at the jdadmit address and put your name and LSAC ID and request the change. That's it. I just did it, and I'm glad I did.

You definitely can, and I think many people (myself included) do. Be aware of two things, however:
(1) the ED deadline is Dec. 15, the same day as the date you are guaranteed a response from Gtown ED. To me this means that they are very much aware of this tendency to switch, and none of us know if it is or is not frowned upon by the adcomms. For me, GW is my very clear top choice if Gtown doesn't work out, so ED makes sense. Don't do it if you're just super anxious and feel the need to ED somewhere.
(2) ED at GW comes with a full scholarship. This does not happen to very many people. It mostly happens to people with a 3.8 or higher and a 169 or higher. If you're way below those #s, it might make sense to ED somewhere else that you really want to go, or just put in a really excellent RD app at GW. If you're like me and you're sort of in the ballpark and jsut really really want to go there, then by all means, ED.
