No idea, but if you want to comb through that thread, I would love some more data to obsess over.

No idea, but I'm PT and on the PWL. A bit surprised as well, since I made it pretty clear I wasn't just using PT as a back door and have pretty competitive numbers for PT. SIGH.

Goof afternoon all,

Apparently I get to be the first person to give news of good news: I was admitted off the special group of the preferred waitlist. The revised decision date wasn't a fluke: my admissions letter was mailed yesterday.

Best of luck to all still on.

Can you access the admitted students site yet? I went DR on 3/15 after being placed on the special preferred waitlist. I haven't received an email from GULC, and since rejections of WLs come by email, I'm hoping that's a good thing. However, I still can't access the admitted students website. Hmmm.

Slightly suspicious that this begins with "GOOF afternoon," but otherwise congratulations!

My first post was a bit short—it was scrawled out on my phone outside of the GULC Admissions Office. (I'm not sure how different this post is, scrawled out on my phone on a sofa at an IKEA.)

Tame, perhaps. I'm excited, nonetheless. Perhaps, I'm also just tremendously relieved. This is my first acceptance at a T14. In the course of two years, I've gone from a college dropout to being accepted at (at least) one of the best law schools in the country.

I did not write a LOCI per se. I did send Ms. Sims a few questions and let them know I would be visiting today. If that made a difference, I don't know; my acceptance was mailed yesterday, and I'm not sure if the committee knew I was popping in.

And finally, the proper response: m-i-z-E-R-Y. Rock Chalk!

Also got decision rendered 3/15. Is this a good sign...? It seems like since they havent emailed me yet it is. Also, it seems strange that they would ding someone from spwl this quickly.

OK, haven't been on the thread for a while. Anybody want to tell me if folks from the regular PWL have been getting admitted? I'm lazy. And studying. I sent a LOCI last week that stopped just short of Cyrano de Bergerac territory. We'll see if I get admitted, or get a date.

Thought I could go thru my entire cycle without posting once on TLS --- but i'm gonna get suckered in. At least maybe I can be another useful reference point for all the other WLers

The people presumably getting in on off the SPWL now have such good numbers that I can't fathom why they weren't just admitted in the first place.

I don't think it's premature to congratulate everyone with a DR. We know it's not a WL, and they're not going to start rejecting from the SPWL in March before they've even hit a seat deposit deadline, let alone rejected the lower tiers of the WL.

+1, anyone get access to the student's side who had a DR 3/15?

DR 3/17, no access yet, can you post the link here so I know for sure I'm doing the right one?

God this is so tense. I am dying to go to this school. I really think I gave forth a great application but man, its unfortunate my GPA was a 3.4 (LSAT was a solid 169, its not great but not bad right?), ugh hopefully Georgetown will see past my unfortunate ONE bad semester (1 C, 2 Bs and 1 A=3.0 gpa=down to 3.4)...every other semester has been a 3.7+ ever since.

*Crosses fingers*

So let me get this straight though, if you're rejected or waitlited, do you get it in the e-mail?

Rejections and WLs are emailed, yes. But you're already WL'ed right? Which tier? Also, did you write a LOCI?

edit: nm, just saw your post in the larger GULC thread. Good luck on your DR, hope you didn't jinx it by posting in the WL thread :wink:

Not waitlisted at all. Just decision rendered. Should I be excited that I didn't get any e-mail?

Jesus christ I am going to be rabidly checking my e-mail every second and praying that GULC doesn't e-mail me. lol.
