DR 12/15. Just got an email notifying me that I was placed on the preferred wait list. 168/3.52, FT.
Did it say a select group within the preferred waitlist?
No select group. Here's the email:
Thank you for applying to Georgetown University Law Center through the Early Decision Program. The Committee on Admissions has reviewed your application and has placed your name on our Preferred Waiting List.
Each year a large number of candidates submit early applications to Georgetown; by the end of this year's early process we will have received more than 4,000 applications. The high quality of this group makes the Committee's decisions extremely difficult. Applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are among those we would like to include in our first year class. These applicants have the strongest credentials of all waiting list candidates and, as a result, receive priority consideration if spaces become available. Although the number varies from year to year, typically fifty spaces open for waiting list candidates, some as late as registration day. Please be advised that applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are not ranked. In addition, please note that you will not be bound by the Early Decision agreement if you are admitted to Georgetown through our Regular Decision process.
We realize that your circumstances may change in the coming months. An e-mail will be sent to you in May asking you to reconfirm your interest and update your contact information. Meanwhile, please update us on any approaching deadlines you may be facing. If you do not wish to have your application remain under consideration, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com
. On behalf of the Committee, we appreciate your patience and continued interest in Georgetown.
