Title: Just got accepted to Georgetown!!!
Post by: SheLaw on November 03, 2004, 01:11:33 PM
I just got my acceptance letter to Georgetown (full-time program) for the Fall 2005  ;D!!! I applied 3 or 4 weeks ago so they were super quick!  My mom just called to tell me 5 minutes ago.  I'm ECSTATIC!!!  At this pt, screw school, I've got a quiz in 1 hr and it doesn't look like I'm gonna study for it.

Would you mind sharing your numbers with us and when your app was complete?  If you don't want to, I understand!

As someone who got in last fall (and reapplying now)

It comes in a small, white envelope.  mine went to decision long after I had received the evelope.  Georgetown sends out decisions on Mondays i think.

I have no clue what color the envelope was.  All my mail gets sent home so my mom read me the letter.  I'm just ECSTATIC!!!  I can hardly type cuz I'm so happy.

Anyway, my LSAT score wasn't that great (I don't wanna say my LSAT score) but I had 3.75 GPA in forensic science. I honestly think my PS and Diversity statement were what got me in.  My essays were really good so that made up for my numbers.

Yeah, I thought it was you, but I wasn't sure!  Congrats!  I'm really glad I could help you out a bit with that.  It is so worth it now!  You certainly had a compelling story, and I'm glad that they felt so too. 

You'll make a great lawyer, and congratulations again!

pookie, if you submitted your app on monday, you might not have a decision this afternoon, but it could come late this evening. you should be sure to check your mail at 5, 6, 7, and 8 pm, as well as several times during the night. i heard some kids on xoxo say the got accepted to georgetown and yale at 3 am and 5 am, respectively.

 ;D  lexy's the best!

i asked my bf last night whether it would be possible to get a webcam inside our mailbox.  he said yes, since they have wireless ones.  i said i wanted it inside the mailbox with a little light (like a flash) that i control, so i can check the contents from work.  he said he could put one on our deck, overlooking the mailboxes, so i'd see when the mailman comes and whether he's putting real mail in our box.  i pointed out that then i'd have to sit there staring at the page all day, otherwise i might miss the mailman and not know.  and he said that there's a webcam that automatically e-mails you when there's activity!  omg, how cool is that?  now i want one  :D
Title: Re: Just got accepted to Georgetown!!!
Post by: lexylit on November 03, 2004, 03:36:13 PM
my dad tried to get me a webcam last year for talking to my mom from stanford, but luckily it wasnt osx compatible so i made him return it. i thought it might be a little intense. "sweetie, you look hungover. or did you just put on weight?"

meanwhile, my responses will come at work, so do i tell the mailroom people why i'm freaking out? and why are there multiple delivery times during the day?

 Congratulations!!  That's wonderful... I got my ED application in to GULC on Oct. 31 (but LSDAS hasn't processed my report request yet  >:( ) ... I think I'll probably be towards the Dec. 10 notification date. Although with my LSAT, I was not so confident, but if you feel your LSAT was low and still got in, I have hope!

PS -  I'm new to the board; it's nice to find one where most of the people are nice and supportive!

I live in VA (about 3 hrs from DC) so that's why I got it so quick.  I just looked at the calendar and submitted my app exactly 3 weeks 6 days ago (Oct 8 ), so the rest of you should be hearing soon I think.  

And thanks everyone for the congratulations.  :D  At this pt, I almost don't care about school and am struggling to stay focused!  I couldn't even focus in class today because I was so excited.  ;D

i think the above post that said someone got accepted and the online report wasn't updated til weeks later (do i misremember? shouldve scrolled back up) proves you shouldn't bother checking and re-checking that site.

Is it looking good for us?  I have been on LSN comparing my numbers to those who have updated as accepted.  Even though gulc doesn't do index numbers, I have compared my index numbers from other schools to theirs from other schools.  Does this make me pathetic??  Wait... don't answer that :)

Congratulations to everyone. I hope things work out for more of the 168ers...


As a side note, over the next few weeks (and months) we'll be getting a lot of these threads for accepts/rejects at different schools. This one was pretty obvious but I think it will be easiest if when someone starts a thread for the school they get into that they just title it something like "Yale: Accept/Rejects" or "Yale Decisions" so that it is easy to find threads and so that there are not repeat threads. Otherwise I envision a hundred threads like "OMG, guess what", "I got in!!" @#!* I got rjected!!"...I doubt anyone will follow this but it would truly make things easier as the site gets busier.

To all those that got accepted, you guys all sound like dynamic individuals and congratulations.  I know what you're saying SheLaw, I can't really concentrate this year in school.   :P  Maybe put it on cruise control till 1L.

ITs funny watching some people start crunching their numbers. Haha.   :D
I just got my acceptance letter to Georgetown (full-time program) for the Fall 2005  ;D!!! I applied 3 or 4 weeks ago so they were super quick!  My mom just called to tell me 5 minutes ago.  I'm ECSTATIC!!!  At this pt, screw school, I've got a quiz in 1 hr and it doesn't look like I'm gonna study for it.

I made the stupid mistake of using my Iraq address as the return address for my application.  Mail takes about three weeks.  Oh well, a delay will just increase the excitement.

Did any of you who were accepted get any notification over email?  Or was it only the small letter?

I just got my acceptance letter to Georgetown (full-time program) for the Fall 2005  ;D!!! I applied 3 or 4 weeks ago so they were super quick!  My mom just called to tell me 5 minutes ago.  I'm ECSTATIC!!!  At this pt, screw school, I've got a quiz in 1 hr and it doesn't look like I'm gonna study for it.

SWAGGER

If I'm not mistaken, last year several people received an email from Andy Cornblatt at GULC that - although it was not exactly an acceptance letter - pretty much spelled out that the acceptance was in the mail. I believe it said something along the lines of "you will be very pleased with the letter you will be receiving from us shortly." (I think this may have been sent to people on the waiting list.)

If you call or email them now with your situation and request an email letting you know that the decision is on the way, I'm guessing that they will oblige - especially since you applied early while they still have time to help you out. And maybe you'll get a "hint" as well, even if they won't tell you outright over email. I don't think it would hurt to ask - at the very least, it will let them know that you are very interested in GULC. (I imagine that holds true for the other schools you've applied to as well.)

For those of you who got an envelope, does your online account status on the GULC site say "DECISION?"  My app. was completed about the same time as others who have posted, but my online status still says "COMPLETE" and i haven't received an envelope...

The status check still says "COMPLETE" for me as well.

Viva, I hesitate to say GULC was a safety per se, but it's definitely toward the low end of my list of applications in terms of rankings.

ootme, I looked on LSN and there are a number of accepts for GTown already; the GPAs range from 3.22 to 4.2 ( :o) and the LSATs from 168 to 177.

I submitted my app on 10/23, and my report was sent on 10/27
Application is still listed as "applied".
So its possible that no one has even looked at mine yet...thats what Im hoping anyway.

snail-mailed mid-september, got my report requested like 9/23, but i never got a "your complete" email and when i emailed them last week they said, NOW you're complete... so it's entirely possible i wasn't really processed til 10/28 (maybe b/c they prefer electronic submissions)

For what it's worth, it still says "Complete" for me and they sent out the acceptance on Monday.  I think there was a 2 week lag on moving me to decision last year.

They're up to date on putting people to "Complete" but probably want to avoid the anxiety attacks of some waiting for their mail after it goes to decision.

makes sense, if 10/28 really was the completion date on your file.  if that's the case (which would be odd in itself), we might find out around the same time.  my file should be complete now; they have two letters, and only one is required.

i got an e-mail from them that same day too:

Dear Pookie,

Thank you for your application to Georgetown University Law Centerís
JD program.  This e-mail is to confirm that the Admissions Office has
received your application and has requested your LSDAS report from
Law Services.

i had applied on the 24th, they got a paper copy on the 27th, report requested 26th, processed 27th.  e-mail obviously came after that.

Lexy,
I sent my GULC application electronically on 10/10.  They requested my LSAC report 10/13, but I also did not get the email saying my file was 'complete' until 11/1.  HOWEVER, I looked at the online status check a week before that and it already said my application was complete - so maybe the adcom got ahold of your app. sooner than you think!  (I'm holding out hope that mine miraculously made it to the adcom & that my decision will be in the mail tomorrow...or the next day...or the next...

 Question for my fellow GULC applicants.  How long did it take from the time your LSDAS report was generated and you receiving an email/letter from GULC stating that your app was complete?  

My LSDAS report finally hit the website today, and it says allow 8-10 days for arrival at the law school... just wondering how accurate that is?

I can't wait for my app to be complete and know that I am free to pick a song to sing on the way to the mailbox!  ;D

PS - can someone tell me what a URM is? thanks!

thanks!

ha ha!  reeve is fun  ;D

ambergale, it sounds like most people got an e-mail on the first stating that their app had been received or file is complete, even if this had been true for weeks.

and URM = underrepresented minority (african-african, hispanic, native american)

CONGRATS ALL AROUND!!!!

AmberGale, URM stands for underrepresented minority.

Does anyone think/know if my decisions will take even longer cause I'm a URM?

Decisions don't take any longer if you're a URM as far as I know. 

To answer another question (I forgot who asked this), my LSDAS file was requested the day after I transmitted my app (I transmitted it on 10/8), my app was complete within 7-10 days and my decision was sent 2-3 weeks after my file was complete.  So it was a total of 3 weeks 6 days from the day of I submitted my app to day I received the acceptance letter.

Thanks SheLaw! I'm sort of freaking out about not receiving anything yet because I applied really early. Although, my recs were late because of some sort of miscommunication with LSAC (they were there, just didn't get sent to GULC). I thought maybe it had to do with URM... hm, I probably just didn't get in  :'(

I wouldn't worry- you don't even have to tell them who you are, just tell them you get the fee waiver but just sent the app fee in, can they waive it?  If they say no, fine, if they do, I am sure that no one would no besides a secretary.

No, I didn't apply for it.  I don't know for certain that I want to practice public interest, but it is one of my possible areas.  But I felt that it wouldn't be truthful for me to apply if I'm not sure.

i agree.  even if the adcomm sees that you got a refund, you can't be labeled a cheapo if it's something they offered.  but if they say no, control your phone rage and hang up.

Okay folks, today is Monday!!  Good luck to everyone that might get letters this week! I've come to the conclusion that my numbers aren't high enough to hear anytime soon, so I'm living vicariously through ya'll! ;D  If by some miracle I were to get a letter, then it would be a happy surprise. 

It's still interesting to me that they have only sent acceptances so far. It seems that there would be at least some applications that they know are a 'no' already (not that I'm wishing this on anyone!!), especially if they truly go by rolling admissions. At the admissions session I attended they said that they review an application and make a decision and then move on to the next. If that were true, then a lot more people should have received letters by now.

Let's get this show on the road, GULC!  :D

It is not an indicator.  It took them 2 weeks after I received my letter for them to update my file to decision.  Even though it says it was last updated today, that does not mean your file was actually updated.
