aaahhhckk. I'm not liking the PT trends. I just switched my app from FT to PT.

Yeah, I have a feeling a lot of people who would've gotten in for PT may not get in this year because of the new rankings game, which if you need to go to school part time, sucks.

Absolutely. They cut away so much of their PT program for starters, and they will also be more selective RD as well.

No but I had offers available for next year, it's not a big deal though GW is too expensive for what you get in my opinion. I think I would have taken W&L over GW anyways. I'm really hoping to get off the WL, are you on it too?

Yes, I am on the waitlist at W&L, but GW PT is definately my number one choice. I'd really like to continue working in some capacity...

No mail! I am shocked. I was positive it would come today.

I live in Provo, UT. Applied ED. Still have not heard anything.

rejected via snail mail in small envelope today. 3.45/163, applied PT.

I guess this rules out Washington DC for me...o well.

for comparison I was straight up accepted to the Fordham PT program so iit seems that GW PT is significantly more selective this cycle
