One of those was me and I was accepted RD from ED - got the packet on Saturday. So it's looking like a good sign for those that were able to log in during that brief window of time!

Anyone think it's worth it to apply this late in the cycle? Just didn't want to blow the $80 app fee in vain.

I actually think GW PT admissions will be quite tough this year. Their US News rankings were dinged HARD last year because of the PT program (GW was required to report those numbers). I don’t know if applying PT was the best idea for me but I do plan to work my job in DC during law school so it was my only choice.

Neil – I too went complete 12/28. Has anyone who went complete around that time started to hear back yet? I believe they are still on late Nov/early Dec.

+1. I'm expecting PT to be harder than FT. Only 50 seats are available if i recall correctly. Competition++.

Last year weren't there some instances of people getting admitted to part time then asked if they wanted full time? If I remember correctly it was right after the rankings came out....Has there been any indication that the # of full time seats are increasing for this next class? Budget wise, how can a school completely eliminate 75/100 seats and the tution those students would pay...

This is so stressful I can't stand it. I hope I don't have to wait for tomorrow for it to arrive in the mail.

Also fully expecting something today. Unfortunately my mail never comes before 4pm CST here. Is it against the law to stalk your postman along his route?

We were ED applicants whose decisions were guaranteed to be mailed by Jan 15. So we are expecting at least our deferral letters today.

I really hope the mail makes it all the way to FL today. I have never found myself resenting MLK before. I need to know before my head explodes from the tension.

Do you mind telling me when is your acceptance package dated? I just know my letter was sent out on Jan 10th. I have a slim hope here...


Sorry, but that doesn't sound good. Most of the deferrals to RD were dated January 10




My letter was dated January 14

So, as of today, I can log into the admitted students site again. I haven't received my letter, but I'm hoping it's a good sign.

Do you mean just through the registration page or all the way though.
