I figured I'd add in a few thoughts as well. First, it was great to meet everyone - a bit odd at first, but made for a good time over the two days. And for everyone that isn't officially on LSD (but stalks the board...) thanks to those who introduced themselves =)
As for Georgetown, I thought they did a really nice job with the weekend. Almost all of the students whom I encountered were very outgoing, ideologically diverse, and exceptionally enthusiastic about Georgetown. I had the opportunity to speak with a few students who were not part of the weekend, and they too seemed to enjoy a positive experience at GULC. Seems like most students are happy there.
The facilities are great - gym is incredible (a spinning room? sauna? yay!) - and the student housing was, as expected, dormish. I plan on living there because it seems like a good way to meet people and I don't want the hassle of independently locating a place in DC. They're expensive, but it's DC...so everything is.
Impressive faculty, seemingly interesting course selections. The incredibly large 1L course sizes scare me a bit, but I was assured that many 2L and 3L classes are between 10-30 people. Classrooms are generic, nothing special.
I guess that's it for now. Catz - please send me those pictures, I'd love to see them. Any LSDers who decide on Gtown, let me know - I'm definitely attending, so we can talk before the fall. Best of luck with the rest of your apps!
