I've got some disheartening news (for some).  I talked to one of my faculty contacts today and they said that at this point... its all LSAT and GPA and nothing else you do matters.  His exact words were "you can only pray". The Adcom ffice doesnt care about anything else right now.  For those of us who did not receive the line about "being oen of teh first ones contacted"; its beginning to look bleak.  They wont get to us until after they turn it down (if they do).. its a pretty big disappointment... 3.7/165.  I hope everyone else has better news.  Good luck...

Anyway, to the poster who wanted UGPA/LSAT....

Lawless, did your email say July 7th (not July 12th; like mine and others).  This may be another difference....

Mine said "July 7th".. maybe the "small group" is being contacted July 7, and everyone else on July 12?

Ronny Thanks for the numbers.  I wonder if the fact that you went to Georgetown undergrad is hurting you?  And maybe work experience.  I have heard but not sure that for the evening programs work experience counts more than day program.  If you look at last year numbers, the G'town part time 75%/25% for LSAT is 166/158.  So I am mystified why you have not gotten in.

DCStudent are you FT or PT applicant?

So, any of the part-timers think we are going to hear anything today?

Ron, I'd like to belive your info, but I just got this from another source....

I happened to ask Sophia Sim about another person a few weeks ago.  Her answer was, "Maybe next cycle, but it'd be a waste of your breath for this year."

Well, it is 5:20 and nothing from GULC.....sweet. I love waiting.

What is going on over there? Are they actually going to take some PT people? What is the delay...the part time class is only 125...how many people could possibly be on the PWL/WL that they are reviewing???
