Should I call??
« on: February 01, 2006, 03:00:56 PM »
I sent in Georgetown application materials during the first week of November.  They must have had a lot of time on their hands b/c a few weeks later they e-mailed me that they hadnt recieved my PS and resume.  I finally sent in all remaining materials, including a follow-up LSAC report, in mid-December and my on-line status has not changed. I sent two e-mail inquiries this week and last week and still no response.  Should I call them or just continue to wait it out?  I starting to wonder if they actually recieved my materials or not.   ???

If I were in your shoes, I would call -- but be careful not to be accusatory (as in, I've already sent 3 e-mails, WTF???).  Don't know if this is the 'right' advice, but it's what I would do.

I would call too.  My app went complete online about two weeks after they received my stuff.  Of course, that was back in October when they were probably quicker with things, but still... Looking at LSN, it looks like a lot of people have applied after you and gone complete already in about 2-3 weeks.

I would definitely call...there's a difference between calling cause you're annoying and impatient and calling because it's been months and you don't even know if they got your stuff.
