How hard has it been to try and switch from PT to FT? I have a friend who got accepted to GW PT and I told him to try and get in FT. I've heard of people doing it after a year or two, but not before they started. Just interested to hear how GW has responded to your request. Thanks.
Well, I was originally offered a spot on the WL, and then accepted PT -- essentially I had two applications in (PT and FT).
When I got into Emory FT, I contacted Dean Richard and asked about switching. The general rule is that PT students can switch after their first semester (but they basically take a full-PT load at night and one day course for the spring). Dean Richard also offered to consider me with the FT waitlist people -- I told her that I'd appreciate that.
Recently, I got a ridiculous scholarship offer from Emory, and I just-this-week informed Dean Richard of that offer, and basically said that I was leaning toward declining GW's PT program based on this. I also told them that I would definitely attend if my status was changed to FT.
If I can find this thread again (thanks search box...) then I'll keep everyone posted on that front. I doubt I'll hear anything before the deposit deadline though, and I won't be submitting another deposit, so I hope that I will still be considered as a WL candidate after that.
