Georgetown 2013

Georgetown must not accept too many people early action. Domestic student. Deferred to Regular Admission Cycle

Tier-1 School
3.26 GPA, top third of class

for the LL.M. International Business


What are you calling tier one? T-14 or top 50? That seems like a low GPA with the huge grade inflation at the top law schools, to be top 1/3rd. The t-14 all seem to be on b+ curves which would make the average 3.5 range.
If top 50, then its likely they view the class rank as too low. Its not the GPA mine is only slightly higher, but i had a much better class rank.
Or maybe you didn't take any classes or have a business background that might make them uncertain if you are a good fit? That could be another reason. Sometimes people don't show an obvious intrest on paper? Just speculating...

I suspect you were deferred because your LL.M. Interest is International and they are now getting back to looking at foreign applications. Your school qualifications are good.

Most domestic students are LL.M. Tax candidates.

Good luck.

Hey CSJTax,

Did you get a response yet?

I still haven't gone "under review", I'm getting really nervous!

Hi. No response yet. I'm not Under Review yet either but got an email Friday saying they would not make a decision on me by Monday because of confusion about something in my App. I'm hoping for review this Thurs / Fri.

Waiting is excruciating!

hi everyone,

I'm a foreign applicant and my application to Georgetown was complete on December 21, 2012 - I was just wondering if anyone else who applied around that time has gone under review/got a response yet?

I'm really hoping to hear back soon, as I have a deadline to reply to another school and I wanted my Georgetown result before making that decision. (Fingers crossed!)

Good luck to all of you


Ushma - did you email Gtown abt deadline with other school? That might help to get a decision from them. Hope so.

The materials say it comes later IF you applied and they only have like ten of them and for small dollars. If I read correctly.

I have just been accepted too, although my status is still officially "under review". Very happy!

I am an international student and I applied to the tax program.

Good luck to those waiting.

Aso, for anyone who was admitted yesterday - are you able to access the admitted student website yet? I know the email said it would probably be 24 hours before we could access the website, but I'm hoping there's nothing wrong (living in fear that my admission email was a mistake haha)

Mine took the 24 hours. But you could request your username and password in the meantime...

That's why I'm concerned, it doesn't seem to recognize my last name and email, so it's not generating a username or password for me!

Just out of interest, what's the deadline to reply to the offer? I think Georgetown has the same deadline for everyone?

I think they wanted a deposit by April, but I'm not 100% sure about that

I got in on a Friday afternoon around 3pm their time, and my log-in didn't work until Tuesday. Yes, I got scared that I was admitted in error, but don't worry! ;)

And yes, the first deposit ($300) is due April 1 and the second deposit ($600) is due May 1.

Thanks 12anon34, that's quite comforting!

Has anyone gone "Under Review" yet this week?

This board is pretty quiet lately--maybe everyone on this board has already been accepted except for me :)
