Conjecture here, but I would guess you would have to supply them with a pretty compelling reason for the switch. If everyone who was relegated to the regular admissions pool just switched to part time, I would think this would be quite problematic. In other words, don't make it appear as if you are trying to just sneak into GW through the back door.
hmmm. I think I provided a decent reason, here's an excerpt from my email:
"As I began the application process I did not view part time study as the best option for me, as I was eager to complete my studies and begin a career in International Law as soon as possible. However, since then I've learned more about the benefits of expanding upon my work experience while I study law. As indicated by the fact that I worked nearly full time throughout the duration of my undergraduate studies and flourished in a university setting, I'm confident in my ability to excel in such a program. It has been my dream to study law in the capital at George Washington University and I would greatly appreciate being admitted in any capacity.
Please let me know if part-time consideration is possible. I apologize for the untimely nature of this request. Thank you so much for your time."
