Title: Personal "Acceptance" Call from George Mason's Dean of Admissions
Post by: LSATGuru on December 06, 2004, 12:27:58 PM
Did anyone else get this?  Anne Richard called me telling me that I'm accepted and there's a packet of materials along with an acceptance letter in transit to my house right now. 


She told me that I'm a "very strong candidate" and seemed to know a fair amount about me.  This seemed semi-obscure, yet refreshing to me.  I was especially impressed after I went on their site and found out that she's a Yale JD and has a venerable legal career behind her. 

Anyway, just wondering.

Congratulations!  Where does GMU fall on your list of preferences?   

There is another thread where a few people mention getting personal calls.  I think this was done for admitted students last year as well.

Before I found out that Baylor was a free application (and got the full ride) I didn't even know where it was.  In fact, I didn't find out it was Baptist until right around when I was accepted.  

Most of my interest stems from it being free and a tier 1 school.  While I definitely like being around fellow believers who share my values, I'm never going to limit myself intellectually, geographically, socially, etc... because I feel obliged to do everything in my life with a "Christian" theme added on.  I do, however, plan on utilizing the gifts God gave me to serve others like the Bible intstructs.  I don't know what your beliefs are, but I hope you can respect mine as I do yours. :)

congrats and i sure do hope that you pick GMU over Baylor and Regent.  ;)

Anne Richard is a friend of a friend, so I have had the opportunity to speak with her a few times (although in informal circumstances - I am not an applicant at GMU) - and you're right, she is a class act.

GMU is a fairly conservative school overall, although their brand of conservatism is more about economic policy than social policy. I know several graduates of GMU, from all over the political spectrum - from right-wing wacko (I say that with affection ;) ) to a tree-hugger whose politics are somewhere to the left of Greenpeace. Most of them fall somewhere in between those extremes. Makes for a good mix of ideas.

Whatever your beliefs are, it's good to have them challenged by worthy opponents - that's what keeps you sharp.

Edit: Oh, and... congrats! :)

im curious, what did she say that gave you the impression she knew a lot about you...  she said i was an "exceptional applicant" and that the packet would be on its way. but nothing in a personal sense..  i am in a cube farm here at work so i just thanked her for the personal phone call but didnt have much else to say.. then she said she hoped she could convince me to attend GMU, to which i had no response, then we said our goodbyes.  did you ask her questions?

She asked me if I'd come to one of their forums if they were in Chicago or St. Louis etc... stuff about my locale.  Also about my undergrad major since it covered international criteria and they used to be the "International School of Law." 

Our conversation was under 5 minutes, but it was long enough to be personal rather than impersonal.

Awww.... I want a phone call! 

I actually got a call from a NoVA number an hour or so after the threads discussing calls from GMU were posted.  I got all excited, but was a wrong number.  It's going to be a long winter...

Senor...I like your strong faith and your willingness to express it.  Usually people only talk about it when its on the other side of the spectrum.  malaprop is right, going somewhere where people might disagree with you will only help refine your own beliefs.

awwwww :-) I think Stanford calls their accepted people, and your numbers suggest you'd have a shot there, did you apply?  That wouldn't be bawling--I'd probably pass out :)

PS: I think you're a dead lock for your #1 choice on LawSchoolNumbers--you should be shooting higher IMO.

i just figured my lsat was too low to get into many of the top schools.. and i am definitely going into environmental law, and george washington has an incredible environmental program, that's why it's my first choice.  i'm stressing horribly about getting in though.. i really wish they'd get with it and start sending out decisions!

thanks for the support though.. and congrats on gmu! :)

I've heard from past applicants that GWU is fairly slow.  I think they're part of the group of schools (many state schools do this--bureaucracies) that wait until December 15th or January 15th (or even later in some cases) to start reviewing all their applications regardless of when they were received. Notre Dame explicitly told me they don't look at any "regular admission" applicants until December 15th, regardless of when they arrive and are complete. And even to be admitted that week you have to have credentials "far above average."  I suppose this means being a few points above their median LSAT of 164.5 and GPA of 3.6ish with great extras.  

This is probably the same case at GWU.  They are reluctant to send out a bunch of "accepts" to people who they know are ideal (like you) because they don't want to "front flood" the class and be forced to deny people who took the Dec. & Feb. LSAT with equally good credentials. They also probably use this "none before December 15th" approach.  

It seems unfair, but I think it's the system used by most schools looking for true diversity rather than high LSATs/GPAs.

Don't take this the wrong way, but your avatar is truly disturbing, THalkey.  

I got an email from Anne Richards (Asst. Dean) telling me to call her at her direct phone number which was a 703 (Arlington/DC) number.  

I didn't check the caller ID, but my dad told me that a lady called earlier that day and she asked for me, then told him she'd email me since I wasn't there to talk.  

Sorry I can't be of more assistance.  With your numbers you should have no problem getting into GMU and will probably get the mailing with your acceptance letter in the next 10 days.

Good to know.  GMU isn't my first choice, but I think I'd be happy going there next year should things work out that way.  And it's nice to know that I'm wanted somewhere.  Maybe now I can stop rocking back and forth in my chair and wringing my hands for a little while and get some actual work done.

yeah, i've heard varying things about gwu - they themselves on their webpage say they start reviewing in december; someone on xoxohth said they called, and the ad coms told them they'd be sending out decisions the first week of december; someone on this board wrote them and they said they'd start sending out acceptances december 15th. so whoooo knoooooows ;)

i'm so obsessed. i think 75% or more of my posts on this forum have been about gwu. haha! :)

Well, based on LSN, they started sending out acceptances around this time last year.  Honestly, I think you'll be one of the first to get one once they begin notifying.  Then you can tell us about it and I can start fretting over when/if I'll hear from them.  It's going to be fun.   :D

Thanks for the kind words.  GW was actually the scene of my notable underperformance as an undergrad though, so I'm not sure how anxious they're going to be to take me back.  We'll see what happens. 

We do have very similar looking cats.  Yours looks like it has a lot more white on it than mine does.  How old is he/she?

No problem, I have a kitty of my own. He's more of a tan-ish beige color--about 2 years old, I'll post a picture later.  I'm planning on committing kitty larceny when I leave for school if I get a 1BR that allows pets.  My parents will probably allow me to do so if I sell them on the appeal of getting a new 3 month old kitten (or a pair of them  :o)

 Whenever I'm laying on my bed playing videogames or watching TV he always jumps up and lays down next to me--far more preferable than a dog jumping on me and slobbering.  I think he'll allow me to take focus off my studies if I have him around next year.   

Side note: Do your cats lick windows?  Mine will sit there for 10-15 minutes straight and lick the sliding door glass or a window upstairs, quite strange behavior.

Her: Oh, hello, thank for getting back to me so quickly.  I'd just like to inform you that, on behalf of George Mason University law school, you have been accepted and we would love if you would join us in our fall 2005 entering class

Me: Wow, that's really exciting to hear, I'm very enthused.  I'm really interested in international law and I noticed that George Mason's law school was originally the (something) School of International Law."  It seems like it'd be a great school for my interests.

Don't count on it - of 787 students (total) 388 full time and 399 part-time, 6 students got "more than full tuition;" none got full-tuition; 17 (2.2%) got half to full tuition; 25 (3.2%) got less than half tuition; ... only 6.1% of the 787 students received any type of scholarship.

They pride themselves on their low tuition cost, and I doubt you'll get much, all things considered.  for full-time you're under their 25th for GPA and 7 points over for LSAT--if they give out scholarships based on merit this would indicate to me maybe a few thousands dollars.  It's only $20k out of state anyway, that's $12k less than most private top 20's.

If you were saying the "greedy" thing in jest, I apologize for this post :P

I still think you'll have absolutely no problem getting in with your stats.  Your LSAT score will drag up their median and aide in raising the 75th mark.  Your UGPA is negligibly below their 25th mark, which shouldn't bother them.  I hear they're somewhat of an LSAT-monger school anway, so they'll welcome your 99th percentile score.

Hi guys-

Just submitted my ap on Tuesday but noticed that they already requested the LSAT report.  How lon gdid it take you to hear back form them? 

I have heard great things about their admin (can you imagine that at a law school?) and have a feeling they move fast.

Thanks!

Did they send out a complete notification, or are you just giving them a couple days after the report was sent?

Probably 10 days after the LSDAS report had been requested and listed as sent with all 3 of my LORs.

Way to be tolerant of others views.  We won't even bring up your past. "I scored 168, no, wait 158." Hell for all we know you might have scored a 148.

I hope you're preparing to be accountable for your chosen words when the time comes.

HTH

whoa what happened... I'm so confused.

Are we not talking about getting phone calls from Anne anymore?

Read page 3 of this thread at the bottom. It's in regard to Matthew_24_24's tasteless comment. 

You're right--let's regain the topic at hand. 

I think it's a good idea if your sister is more than an acquaintance with Anne to call.  If she's just  an indirect contact, though, it may come off as pandering--plus, you don't need any extra help, you'll get in.  They're probably just taking an "administrative" break after admitting a bunch of people.  You've got nothing to worry about.  There are 100,000 people applying this cycle and you scored better than 99,000 of them on the LSAT.

Thanks for the recorrect.  Um, well it's done, she already called.  But the only reason she did is that when she was recruiting for her firm there last year she mentioned that I was applying and they told her to call after I applied.

(And I'm not at all worried, I just kinda want that first "yes"... ya'know)

IF she said "Call me after he applies" then yeah, definitely nothing wrong with her calling.
