I received a letter today indicating that I had been accepted to GULC for the fall of 2006, not 2005. The letter says that I was part of a special group of students that they could only admit for next year. It suggests that there might be a possibily to be accepted this year, but provides no details as to how or when that might occur. Ends with a handwritten note that says "hope this works out."
I find it incredibly bizarre. My numbers are a bit above average for Georgetown: 3.73/(166+171) with strong ec's at HYP and two years work experience on Capitol Hill. I am really at a loss as to what is going on. I've already been accepted to several schools that are at least as good as Georgetown (UVA, Boalt, Duke). But I have an interest in staying in DC, so I'm quite disappointed.
On top of everything else, I have access to the admitted students' web site, with all the info about admitted students events. Except that I'm not really accepted in the way that everyone else at those events will have been.
Is anyone else in this boat? Or can at least rationalize this?
