I got this email this afternoon, and I was wondering if it was just boilerplate. Did everybody else get a letter like this?
As you are aware from earlier communications with Georgetown University Law Center, our Committee on Admissions had identified you as one of our stronger applicants and placed you on our preferred waitlist. As mentioned in the letter you should have already received, you will be one of the first applicants whom we will contact in the event of an opening.
Even though we could not initially offer you a position in the entering class, we stay committed to our promise to update you. Our first deposit is due May 2, and we hope to have a better idea of potential openings during the week of May 9, but it is possible we may know even sooner. Please confirm your interest in Georgetown as soon as possible by e-mailing XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX at XXXXXX@law.georgetown.edu
. If you feel comfortable sharing any more specific information about other law school deadlines, she will be happy to pass this along to the Committee as well.
Finally, if spaces do become available, there will be a short time frame for you to make your enrollment decision. Thus, if you intend to apply for financial aid to help finance your law school costs, you should complete the FAFSA/Need Access forms as soon as possible. Information on applying for aid is available at www.law.georgetown.edu/finaid
. Completing aid materials earlier will facilitate your aid evaluation and minimize delays in your receipt of your award notice.
We will give you an update by e-mail on May 17 and look forward to hearing from you.
Director of Admissions
