Haven't heard anything directly yet, but, when I called the Admissions Office today I was told that there is currently no real time frame as to when more offers will go out (all depends on who withdraws).  I was told that the waitlist has been drastically shortened.   I'm assuming this means that GW has already sent out acceptances and rejections to those on the pre-shortened waitlist and those who have heard nothing yet are on the extended summer waitlist that can go on until the first day of class.  Could be wrong but that's the impression I got...

June 16th is the postmark date BTW, so my guess is 2 weeks after that.

I'm on the BC wl and I'm figuring the same thing with their June 5th 2nd deposit deadline.

Oh, I got my WL-rejection letter like three weeks ago.  My mom never even told me about it and I came home from school and it was shuffled in my mail.  No LOCI sent though on my half so I wasn't too surprised.

Not too concerned about it - wasn't really interested in living in DC and am very satisfied with my school

Got an email yesterday telling me that they'd likely not get very many more WL offers out.  Meh, whatever.

Hey, what was the date of that email?   I know that GW sent out a notice about 2-3 weeks ago to many people on the wait list telling them that there would be no spaces.  Can you append the email to the message??  thanks

The email is below.  It is about a week old now, so I'm not sure if it is the one you are thinking of.




Dear Super Awesome Dude,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the early days of summer.  As promised by Dean Cornblatt, I'm e-mailing to give you an update on the waiting list situation at Georgetown University Law Center.

We have now received all of our second, and final, set of tuition deposits.  While we thought it was possible that some spaces would open up in Georgetown's entering class, the response to our deadline was quite strong.  Thus, we do not expect to make many offers in the near future.

We also understand that many of you are faced with deadlines at other schools and that this delay may mean that you will need to go forward with your enrollment plans elsewhere.

Thank you for your continuing interest in Georgetown.

Sincerely,

Sophia Sim

Dear future super awesome great all around good human being,

We now know that we will be making a number of offers of admission -- for both our full-time and part-time programs.  Our admissions committee is reveiwing the complete files of all wait-listed candidates and creating a ranking that we will follow in extending offers.

I will be in touch with you no later than next Wednesday, June 25th, with a decision.  If we are able to admit you, I will contact you by phone and/or e-mail, as well as send you a formal acceptance package through the U.S. mail.

All candidates admitted from the wait list will have at least 10 days to pay their seat deposits ($1,500.00) and also will have the opportunity to apply for financial aid (need-based grants and loans).  All admitted applicants who qualify for need-based aid will be awarded need-based grants that may range in amount from $3,000 to $19,000.  And, of course, all individuals who are US citizens or permanent residents may borrow federal student and private loans.

At this time, we have no merit funds available.  However, if any merit funds do become available during the summer, all admitted applicants -- including those we admit from the wait list -- will be considered for merit awards.

We appreciate your patience throughout this process and hope you are still interested in GW Law.

Thank you.

    Anne


I got that today in the old email box.  So, decisions going out soon!

So what does this mean for the people who did receive the email?

I guess there is now absolutely no chance I'll be going anywhere other than Cornell.  DC was a nice dream while it lasted.

Any1,

Are there people here who are 'Reconsideration' applicants to GWU Law? I applied last November, got rejected in March for the Full Time program, and asked them for reconsideration into the Part Time program, since I have a job and wouldn't mind working in DC and going to Law school in the evenings. Its mid-July, and I'm still waiting to here from them on a decision...

Peace
