Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / GULC - New WL letter today
« on: July 12, 2005, 11:11:54 AM »

As we move further into July, were continuing to closely monitor the wait list situation at Georgetown University Law Center.  In our effort to share as much information with you as possible, Im writing today to let you know that Georgetown is not yet able to extend new offers of admission to those on the wait list. 

At this point, we anticipate that we will have to wait until after our fall semester tuition payment deadline of July 25 in order to have a better sense of whether additional spaces in the class are likely to open up.  Because it takes several days after this type of deadline for us to follow up with any individuals from whom we have not heard, we should have further information for you on July 28. 

While we hope that you are able to continue to be patient with our wait list process, we also understand that this delay may mean that you need to go forward with your enrollment plans elsewhere.  If there are any changes in your law school enrollment plans or summer contact information, Id appreciate your letting us know.

Thank you for your continuing interest in Georgetown.

Thomas C. Arthur will step aside as dean of Emory University School of Law, according to Emory Provost Earl Lewis. Arthur, a member of the Emory law faculty since 1982, will return to teaching as soon as arrangements can be made concerning a transition.
"It has been an honor to be the dean of this law school, and I am proud of all that my colleagues and I have been able to accomplish in the last three years," says Arthur. "But these accomplishments have come at a high cost to my family life, my intellectual life and scholarship, and my teaching, all of which I miss greatly. Consequently, I have decided to return to teaching and scholarship. I appreciate the generous support I have received from President Jim Wagner and Provost Lewis in making this decision."
"Tom's decision is the result of several conversations," says Lewis. "We have decided to act on Tom's recommendation that he step aside as dean as soon as we can put in place a strategy for an interim solution."
Wagner and Lewis are meeting with law school faculty this week to discuss the resignation and get faculty input on alternatives for the transition period.
Thomas J. Lawley, M.D., dean of Emory University School of Medicine, will chair the search committee for a new dean. Members of the search committee will be announced within the next two weeks, says Lewis.
Lewis stressed that Arthur's resignation is not related to a drop in the law school's latest rankings in U.S. News & World Report. "It is unfortunate that the rankings came when they did because the casual reader will conflate the two. The law school's rankings over the last 10 years have oscillated in a predictable rhythm, and this year's ranking is no exception," says Lewis.
"This is really about a dean who, upon looking at the prospect of another several years, came to the conclusion that the job, personally and professionally, required more than was good for him or his family," says Lewis.
"I applaud Tom for the degree to which he has helped to solidify the academic community in the law school. He has made some outstanding hires. He has shown a commitment to the academic vision outlined by the law school faculty in its strategic plan. And he has positioned the school to realize significant gains in the years ahead."
Arthur was named dean of Emory Law School in June 2002. From 1989-97 he served as the school's associate dean for academic affairs and was co-director of its American Law Center in Moscow in 1996 and 1997. From 2000-02, Arthur served as interim director of Emory's Halle Institute for Global Learning. His academic specialties include antitrust, civil procedure and administrative law.


As if I'd ever go there anyway (no offense to those that are)
