+4. God I hope they decide soon. But does waitlist, even special preferred, mean that any of my chances for a scholarship are gone?

Are any splitters' dates getting updated or is it just people with stronger numbers?

I was updated to 3/9 and then 3/12 as well, and I had that 03/15 DR glitch.

I'm a splitter with a 3.43/171 but I have pretty interesting work experience (not that that matters much), wrote a LOCI about getting a Jesuit highschool education and how important it is to me, and I'm Cuban American (not a URM but I'm sure it helps a little)

I'm a splitter in the "special group" and no updates for me...

My new theory is that just put all of us special people's names in a hat and pulled some out.

Here's to me having my name picked next time they take out said hat!

Anyone know about chances of getting off regular waitlist??

My numbers are the same as those on SPWL so I am guessing they didn't like my softs...why not just reject me outright? Any theories?

I think it will depend on the context. If they lose a desirable applicant that was doing something for their LSAT or GPA median, and they want you to replace that person, they might dangle some money to sweeten the deal. If, on the other hand, they just need "filler" for the class, probably not; there are plenty of applicants on the regular and preferred WL who would be eager to pay sticker. But then, being on the SPWL is probably a safe indication you have something -- whether it be GPA, LSAT, or Zing (tm), that they want.

So no one who got all of these new dates has received any news yet? Saw a few things on the Georgetown thread, but wondering specifically about people who were on the wait list and the result of the new update...I am still stuck at DR 2/25 which was SPWL....

Unless I've missed something, none of us has heard anything.

Day ain't over yet, but if it doesn't change, it should be clear that it really was a glitch.

Emailed Ms. Sim on Thursday about the special group - got a "Thanks" but no answers regarding the size of the list, or the number of admits.

Anything other than "thanks"? Or had you send an LOCI she was thanking you for?

Really no news today for any SPWL who had new DRs last week?? My DR (to SPWL) is still stuck on 2/25.

I basically said that I was interested in staying on the SPWL, Georgetown was my first choice, asked how many people were on the list and how many might be admitted, and some personal travel related stuff. All I got was "Thanks".

Any idea how those of SPWL people will be notified?

...meaning it wasn't a glitch the first time either. Can't believe they'll make you guys wait. It has to be an acceptance though, why would they just reject a bunch of people from the top tier of their waitlist.

i'm thinking it's unlikely that they'll offer a scholarship to someone from the WL. i'm accepted and asked for a scholarship, and got classified as an alternate. i think there are quite a few alternates, and not many of us will end up with money. i don't see how they'd skip all the alternates and offer money to someone on the WL, but i could be completely wrong there. just guessing.

Just got DR also but no email. Have you guys tried logging into the admitted students site? I can't. I'm on a cruiise paying a dollar per minute for slow ass internet and this is driving me crazy.

That doesn't mean much. I wasn't able to login in right after I received my letter. I think it took a couple of days. Don't worry too much.
