Has anybody had an address change yet?


Yeah idk, there was movement last year on 4/15 via an address change. Then backdoor worked five days later.

This is actually the latest cycle in recent memory. Back in 2012, there was movement on 4/18 and backdoor worked 4/24. The fact that we haven't seen any movement on 4/19 is hopefully indicative of the fact that they've changed their methods?

There must be a lot of applicants this year for this to be taking so long. Or maybe they are mailing decisions in an attempt to quiet our message board. I just hope we hear something soon. I have a deposit deadline for a lower ranked school coming up. It would be nice if I didn't have to pay it.

That or they finally figured out how to fix the backdoor/address loopholes. Seems like something that shouldn't be happening in the first place. Official acceptance emails went out the second to last Friday in April last year, lets hope it is the same this year.

I wonder if it has to do with them falling out of the T14...possibly reducing number of ED transfer acceptances? I just find it odd that we have seen no movement on applications as in previous years. Maybe previous TLS'r is right and they have changed their methods and will be mailing or emailing decisions instead of giving insight through the online application. If someone has a deadline from another school, perhaps you could give admissions a call and ask if you can expect a decision sometime soon as you have another deadline coming up and would like to go to GULC, if accepted.

A friend called and said she knew it's not policy of GULC to disclose over the phone but had an upcoming deadline on Friday regarding a lease. Admissions office said it's unlikely decisions will be out by Friday but they will be by the end of the month i.e. next week.

Some folks crowdsourced the class of 2016 info. Take the below link as a general indication of their success. And note that a good portion of the class was interested in GULC for their PI placement specifically, so you've got to offset the total.

Since only credits transfer instead of actual grades, do employers look at our first school grades or are they completely out the window if/when we transfer?

This is complete conjecture so take this with a mountain of salt but I would think GULC accepting you as a transfer would imply very good 1L grades. I have absolutely no statistics other than the usual acceptance stats to back that up but just my theory.

Did not transfer to GULC but can comment on what employers look at. Instead of bringing a GULC transcript to your screeners you bring your previous schools transcript. Employers then look at your first-year grades, but as far as calculating a new GPA at GULC you start from zero. Generally, this is a pretty good thing as you are already perceived to be a high-achiever.

Point being still need to do well on finals this semester.

It's my understanding that your 1L GPA from your original school is one of the most important parts of your OCI package, along with the original school's rank. If you get in EA, don't drop the ball in Spring.

If it all pans out, also, bid conservatively (i.e. if the firm's GPA cutoff is 3.9 for GULC students, and you have a 3.9 from a T3, you probably shouldn't put all your eggs in that basket).

I don't know if this means anything, but I have an address change. (Apt. -> Apartment) No movement on program time or decision. Backdoor not successful.
