I can't believe they said that there are only 100 people on each waitlist!  From lawschoolnumbers I would guess there would be at least twice that amount.  It sounds good to me though.

Good luck to everyone on the waitlist.  But of course, better luck to me. :P

Ok, for all of the nonbelievers out there, I have pasted the content of the email below.  I can't convince you that I'm not making it up, but whatever.

"Dean Cornblatt has asked me to provide you with an update on your
admissions status.  The Committee is in the process of looking at our
Waiting List candidates and they have asked me to let you know that you are
in a group that they will be looking at in the next few weeks. 

Our first deposit is due May 3, and we will most likely not know
whether we will have any openings until May 15.  It is possible, however,
that the Committee may make some decisions before then.  Please remember
that 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 www.law.georgetown.edu/finaid. Completing
aid materials earlier will facilitate your aid evaluation and minimize
delays in your receipt of your award notice.

Given the fact we may be making admissions decisions in a relatively
short time frame, we ask that you respond to me at
klw27@law.georgetown.edu on or before April 21st to reconfirm the
extent of your interest in the Law Center and let us know of any updates to
your law school plans, including any upcoming deadlines.  We also ask
that you provide us with information regarding your summer plans and any
address changes.  Alternatively, if you would like us to remove your
application from consideration, we would appreciate your letting Jason
know that as well. 

Thank you again for your continued interest in Georgetown and for your
patience with our process.  We will be in touch soon."

I'm on the preferred list and received a similar email. The only real difference is the first paragraph:

"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 in a special waitlist group.  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."

It goes on to talk about deposit dates and says that they won't know until May 15th if there are any openings.

Wow. I assumed it was just a form letter and that preferred got one and regular got the other. I know i shouldn't be thinking this way, but i'm becoming increasingly optimistic about getting in.

I just hope there's still room in that nifty law student building if/when they let me in. I don't wanna pay DC market rent rates... :(

i just got an email from gtown today...its contents were a lil different from what was listed above.

Dear Kevin,

While we are still in the process of making admissions decisions, I am writing to provide you with an update on the Committee’s progress. Given the fact we may be making decisions in a relatively short time frame, we ask that you respond to ** at ** as soon as possible to reconfirm the extent of your interest in the Law Center. Alternatively, if you would like us to remove your application from consideration, we would appreciate your letting us know that as well.

Please remember that 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 www.law.georgetown.edu/finaid. Completing aid materials earlier will facilitate your aid evaluation and minimize delays in your receipt of your award notice.

Thank you again for your continued interest in Georgetown and for your patience with our process. We will be in touch soon.

Best,
