Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Georgetown
« on: April 22, 2005, 10:36:40 PM »
That's great, especially since they seemed to be putting people off to next year.  I was deferred and then placed on the regular waiting list.

I called to talk with them about it and they said that usually all deferrals go on the priority list, but this year, that list is already overfilled so those of us less desirables went on the regular list.

I still would go to GULC if accepted, but the chances are slim.

Strange.  I am on the priority wait list, but I didn't get the deferral offer.

I don't understand...
is that a purple Gorilla?

Polar bear.  Make more sense now?

Well, I didn't want to go anyway.  They are a second rate school.  I suggest that all those who have been admitted should withdraw and go elsewhere instead.


Cornell, Georgetown, NYU, USC, and UCLA here.  Chicago, Columbia, and Penn haven't yet decided whether or not to waitlist or reject me yet.


I am on the Regular waiting list and got the email today.  Mine is definitely not as positive.  They also left out tons of info.  It excludes talk about Financial Aid and is only 2 paragraphs.  Georgetown didn't say anything about us being strong candidates.    The letter also never mentions the fact that the first deadline is May 2nd.  They only mention a deadline of May 13.  It seems as though people on the Regular Waiting list are second rate (let's hope we don't have to go to you guys) candidates....

I feel second rate on all of my waitlists. 

I do wonder why the have two different waitlists.  Do they ever take somebody off of the regular over the preferred waitlist?  That doesn't make much sense.  Do they ever exhaust the preferred waitlist?  Doubt it. 

Oh, well.  This waitlist thing is just annoying.  I tell myself not to get my hopes up, but I still do.  Especially when I get an email like this.

Are you full-time or part-time? I got an e-mail as well, but it was very different and not nearly as positive.

I am on the wait list for full time students.

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  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 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

What about for a public defender job?

I got waitlisted a few days ago as well.
