I'm STILL unavailable.  I applied on November 5, it said applied for a few days, and then it switched to unavailable and has remained that way for the last 3 weeks.  What is going on??  Haha, this is killing me!  Does anyone else have this unavailable problem? 

I switched my username and password from the assigned one right around the time it went unavailable...could this have something to do with it?

Did anyone notice that the vast majority of splitters are still just "complete?"

I think they are just going to line us all up at the end and pick their favorite two. :P

If they're only going to pick two, I'd rather they just shoot us.

I went COMPLETE a long, long time ago.

My status is still COMPLETE.

I won't detail my stats, but I have an above median GPA from a top ranked Ivy, in range LSAT, and relevant WE and soft factors. I'm non-URM.

To those who were given DECISION status last week, did you receive anything in the mail yet? If so, what?

Thanks

I went to decision last week Thursday, complete 11/1.  I live in NYC and I received nothing in the mail yet. ???

I have been looking at posts from last year this time and Georgetown seems to be running their process a little different from a year ago, including extending their early decision deadline, last year they extended the application deadline a whole month, twice I think.  I can't gauge what's going on, just got 2 sit and wait it out with them.

How can a school have two (2) Early Decision/Early Action Dates, anyway?
What is that all about?  November 1 and December 1?

They don't have 2 dates, it just appears that way.

Nov. 1 (this year the 7th) was the date by which you had to apply to be ED/EA.
Dec. 1 was the date by which your file had to be complete, which means not just the application, but the recommendations and your LSDAS report and any supplemental essays you might be sending.

Other schools, do not separate it into apply and complete dates, just a complete date (such as Oct. 15th for NYU).

See!  I just can't gauge that school!  Thanks 4 the explanation. :) Now can you predict what these recent DECISIONS are going to be, since no-one seems to have received anything in the mail yet? 

I would've preferred to stay COMPLETE and just got a decision in the mail when I wasn't expecting anything.  This crap is stressful!
