i just saw someone who got 30k/yr which i believe is less than full but very substantial. I wish I could find that now

Submitted ED. Still no answer.

Edit: Has anyone who submitted an ED application that lives in Utah, Arizona, Colorado, or Idaho received an up or down from them yet?

I was admitted today, RD, FT.

quick question to y'all: I had a really nice, individualized message from the dean on my acceptance letter- is that common for GW or can I feel special?? that may make up for some of the rejections ive received recently lol

Good luck everyone!


And... waitlisted today via snail mail. Highest LSAT so far to not get the green dot, lowest GPA to not get the red dot. Will likely withdraw in the not-so-distant future, given the unlikelihood I would get any scholarship money at this point.

Congrats to the admits, good luck to the rest of you!


Got the complete email at the same time as you...perhaps my decision is on the way? Where are you located?

Word. The line between 166 and 167 is pretty solidly drawn on their LSN box right now:

Well that does not make me feel good. The only thing I can think is that it is taking longer to get to me because they didn't use First Class due to a WL or reject. Anyone who was WL'd or reject - what type of mail did they use? Standard or First Class?

Anyone know how GW does Merit Scholarships? Does it come with the acceptance letter or does it come at a later time?

Just got my acceptance today, RD FT. I got a individual message also from the dean. Even if most people get them, still makes me feel pretty special.

If we didn't get any $$ info in the package does that mean we shouldn't expect anything else?

Did everyone who got accepted get a little handwritten note with the acceptance letter?

I'd call the admissions office and ask about your situation.

Sorry, which entry are you pointing at there? The odd red dot in a sea or green, or that there are a few acceptances with 166s and high (3.8+) GPAs? If its the red dot, I can't explain that, but if its the high GPA acceptances with 166 LSAT then I think the point still stands that: so far, and as we see through the admittedly limited sample size of LSN, the adcom sees a sharp distinction between a 166 and a 167, and what it takes to admit each.

Or did I miss your point completely? :lol: Long day, and all that.

Cupidity! Congratulations. I just saw over in the Georgetown thread that you were in at GW today.

Actually, the little red dot in the sea of green would be me, Justice Harlan. (And thanks for pointing it out, by the way! Jeez, no one posts screen shots on LSN of all the schools I was admitted to?!) I think I posted this in my profile to calm any anxiety my dot may give people with similar numbers, but I made a pretty glaring mistake on my application. (After doing twenty of them on that terrible LSAC interface, it was bound to happen, right?) :oops:

Ah, sorry about that. It still seems like you're having a pretty good cycle overall - $$ at BU and Notre Dame takes away more than a little bit of the sting, I would bet :)
