I thought they do not send letter regarding deferring to RD!! Its either acceptance or rejection/waitlisted

Dear XXXX:

We have completed review of your application for early admission to our fall 2010 entering class. We commend you for your many accomplishments and appreciate your strong interest in our law school.

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer you early admission but will consider your application in our regular admission process. We hope to have a final decision for you in the next four to six weeks.

Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,
Anne M. Richard
Associate Dean




I'm worried what US News has done to their PT admissions, but hopefully I'll get in. I've wanted to go to GWU for years.


I think I will get this letter in a couple of days...

Bad news as in you didn't get the full-ride ED scholarship. Only a very small percentage of applicants were accepted ED. You may very well still get in.


I guess I may just get a deferral letter dated on Jan 10.

Can we assume the ED deferrals went out 1/10 and the ED deferral/RD acceptances went out 1/15? Hopeful thinking only? Did anyone get an ED deferral without acceptance from the 1/15 mailing?

There weren't enough deferrals only in the last batch...i think it's probably a mixed bag.

I think you may be right. There are like 4 people on this board with 169+ ED that haven't heard yet, and I'm pretty sure its going to be an acceptance.

I got in about a week ago and can't get on the site. Will probably email them this week. But I was also one of the ones who could register before (I think like a month ago, 3 weeks?) so.... maybe that's why? Because they think I've already registered? Confused....

So I got a one page letter saying they were offering me the merit scholarship etc, but no typical congrats on admissions letter or any other info. Is this normal? Can't log into the admitted students site either. :?

I applied to GW three weeks ago but have not heard anything back (no initial email or complete email). Has anybody else experienced the same thing? Thanks!

Wow. Applied on the fourth and still do not have anything. I would guess we'll get something this week but that is just my conjecture.

So I have been out of town since Thursday AM and unable to check this board...instead of reading all the way back (I already read about 5 pages) have we concluded that no one who applied ED was flat out rejected? I got the deferral letter that everyone else got...
