Georgetown Early Decision 2016-17


Lawbug2015
Hello All! I just received my admission confirmation (email) to Georgetown. Has anyone else also received?
If so, has your portal status changed? Mine hasn't. Thought I'd start a thread for Georgetown hopefuls! Drop a HI!

*EDIT 16/12: I just checked and found that the admitted students website is live. I haven't received an email, and I have been impatiently trying to access it. Has anyone been able to do the same?

Hi! I received my admission email and letter two weeks ago.
I have just checked my "Applicant Online Status" and it says only "Application Complete - 10/30/2015".

Gtown is a great school in all aspects. From now on I will wait for the decisions about scholarships. I´ve sent them an email a week ago regarding financial aid and here's their answer:

"The scholarship committee will begin considering all admitted applicants for a scholarship based on your initial application beginning in late January and will make offers on a rolling basis."

Does anyone know if Gtown gives full tuition waivers or anything close to that? Washington is a really nice place to live, but it is way expensive though.

Cheers!

Hey! Even mine says "Application Complete" and Decision Status is blank.
I was wondering about the scholarships as well because Washington is really expensive. I think all admitted students are eligible for scholarships. Any idea how many people are generally awarded scholarships?

Also, Congratulations! Are you awaiting decisions from other colleges?

Hi, I received the admitted decision on Nov. 20. Before that day, on Nov. 19, my status changed from "Application Complete" to "Under Review". It was really fast for Gtown to make a decision!
So there is chance to be awarded a shorlarship? I guess I will just wait for the scholarship decision and wait to see if I could be admitted to other better law schools.

I can´t see any school better than Gtown among the T14 (except from Yale, Harvard and Stanford). In fact, Gtown and the other 10 schools within the T14 are really close to each other in an academic comparison.

The good thing about Gtown is that they have a "Supreme Court Institute" and "The Georgetown Center for the Constitution" that are really nice. More than that, Gtown´s location is just perfect: right across the street from the Supreme Court, the White House, Congress, great museums, etc...

I would love to enroll there, but $$$ will play a key role in my decision...

Same here! I received the email on Nov. 20 as well, but the portal remains the same. Waiting for the hard copy of the letter now. It was really fast of Georgetown, not to mention quite unexpected!
I hope that this means that there are more chances of receiving scholarships, but if they're going to take some time to decide I guess we will be evaluated in comparison to ALL admitted candidates. Best of luck to us I guess.
Where else have you applied?

I agree, however NYU has a few scholarships but New York would be just as or more expensive. I still have to complete my NYU application. For me too it is Georgetown's location plus the fact that they have a load of externships with a lot of international organizations.

You're right! I've also applied to NYU.

As far as I know, NYU granted 10 Hauser Scholarships (full tuition + living stipend),15 Vanderbilt Scholarships (full tuition) and some more Dean Scholarships (partial to full tuition waiver) last year. I guess NYU offers the best chances for a Scholarship, but I know it is hard to get one.

NYC is way more expensive than DC, even if you live far from the school (Queens, Brooklyn, etc).

My interest on Gtown and GWU is linked to the fact that their location can provide a load of externships with international organizations!

True! Any idea if NYU has rolling admissions? I am assuming its a hard deadline of Dec. 15, with decisions out by March.

Any idea what the nature of Georgetown scholarships is? Full/partial waiver?

I think that NYU sends all its decisions at the same time (in the first week of March, as far as I know).

I really don't know what kind of scholarship / financial aid is available at Gtown. It would be just perfect to receive full tuition waiver... Ok... I am just dreaming...

@brunofloripa Since my practice focuses on IP law, therefore to my opinion, there are more suitable law schools in top 14 than Georgetown, like NYU, Berkeley...but the location of GTown is really great indeed.

@Lawbug2015 You may check my profile for the information, I listed all the law schools I have applied to there. What about you? Any preference than GTown?

Hey! I think we have applied to around the same colleges.So far I've applied to Georgetown, Chicago, Penn and Vandy. Completing applications for NYU and UoM.
Honestly my final choice will depend on the funding and scholarships.

@lordjustice: I've got your point. In a general academic comparison all the T14 schools are quite like the same, except for some really specialized areas or focuses (like IP Law, for example).

@lordjustice and @Lawbug2015: Yes! I also think we have applied to around the same Law Schools.
As you said, I will also choose one based on location and scholarships, mainly because we are facing hard economic struggles here in Brazil (our currency is really undervalued against the US dollar).

Hi,

I just received my accceptance email on Nov 20th. Georgetown's website states that "If you're an international student, options for financing your education at Georgetown Law are limited to commercial loans". On the other hand, there is a financial aid application for which international students shall complete sections 1-5, but you algo received an email saying that all admitted students are considered for financial aid.

You seem to be up to date with Gtown's financial aid rules. Is there financial aid apart from commercial loans, do you need to fill an application, are we all considered? Could you help clearing this up?

Hi gdeschamps, What did you apply for? Georgetown offers Taxation LL.M. Scholarships and Fellowships such as Georgetown University Law Center Graduate Tax Scholars and in conjunction with the Council on State Taxation (COST), the Law Center provides a stipend (approximately $7,500) and a two-semester internship at COST. Don't know if this relevant as it only applied to FT Tax students.

Hi, thank your for your reply. Im enrolling in the LLM in Financial and Securities Regulation, do you know anything about financial aid for it?

@ gdeschamps: The Georgetown University Law Center/Council on State Taxation (COST) Graduate Fellowship in State and Local Taxation that I mentioned yesterday may be of interest to you. They give preference to full-time LL.M. (Taxation) students but not exclusively.
