Georgetown LLM starting Fall 2020


abaldacone

Hi guys,

I just got my admission decision on Friday, 9 March. In the email i received, i was told to expect my acceptance letter and other information. Can anyone help with the timeline I may expect to receive this. Also, is there a specific day everyone has to get back on making their decision on whether to enroll or not or that is peculiar to each Applicant?

Lastly, any information on scholarship decisions and when we may expect to hear on that.

Thanks

As far as scholarship decisions, it might help if you have a previous offer from a different school. Specifically in my case, I forwarded a scholarship offer from a different school to all the other schools that I applied to. Georgetown replied me two days later with a scholarship decision. The same thing happened with Cornell.

Any news on funding anyone?


Email from school following an email I sent:

“ The Scholarship Committee has begun making decisions on scholarships and will continue to make offers on a rolling basis throughout the Spring. To my knowledge, the Committee is still deliberating on the National Security Law Scholars program.”

“ The Scholarship Committee is aware that applicants have deposit deadlines on the horizon; however, I cannot guarantee that a scholarship decision will be rendered before the end of March.”


Thanks so much for sharing!


I received: “Although I cannot make any guarantees, the Scholarship Committee will be making more decisions each week this month.”

Did anyone get a personalised note in their acceptance package? I heard from another applicant from my country that they did.

Yes :) it was short saying they hope I chose them. Not sure how personalized your friend’s was.

Do you know other people who got this note too? Because I didn't and it sounds like a cause for concern.

Not personally. But I wouldn’t think it’s a cause of concern. I think they personalize letters to stand out when they believe you will have other options. I also got it for UPenn (that one even more personalized), and I was hoping that meant I had a good chance for a high scholarship—that wasn’t the case.

Okay, thank you. I guess I'll only know for sure once I hear from them (or don't). Thank you and all the best.

I received a short handwritten note saying they hope I enroll. It wasn't anything super special.

Hi, that’s great! Did you email those other scholarship offers to Georgetown before they gave you an offer?

I received my acceptance email from GULC last week, and the email stated that my official letter was not sent due to the quarantine caused by COVID-19. The email did not mention scholarships. Does that mean I am unlikely to have received a scholarship?

Do we have a WhatsApp or Facebook group for admitted students for 2020-21?

I am happy to create one if there is interest.

No, don't worry. They almost never mention scholarships in acceptance emails. We should hear something on scholarships this week.

Congratulations! How much did you get? Was it general or course related scholarship?
