Georgetown LL.M. 2014-2015


Hi All,

Does anyone have an idea when will the financial aid decisions be made? I emailed them and they did not even reply... I should note that I didn't apply for any 'particular' scholarship, i.e. the tax fellowship or the human rights one.

Thanks!

Decisions will come through April I believe.
Give them some time. They are probably swamped with emails this time of the year. :)

Thanks! Just wanted to make sure that there IS some consideration process apart from the scholarship applications

I hear you. There is a process. But it is not very clear what it's parameters are.
Ie whether it is need based. Merit based.
Without an application I don't see how one can decide who is suitable for aid. . And who can do without .
But that is life I suppose.

Did they offer the scholarship with the admission or later?

That status means that the admissions committee is already considering/evaluating your application. It is a good development in terms of progress. Decisions usually come out a few days after that status change.

Dear Friends,

Hope you are doing well. I have a question for you how long do you have to wait from the moment that your status change to "application under review" until you get an answer from Gorgetown.

Best of luck to everyone.

No I didn't. Instead I was required to write an essay on a tax related issue. This essay was a part of my application form. Actually after my admission I was invited to participate in the tax scholarship program.

"In an effort to attract highly qualified US- and foreign-trained students to our Tax Program, Georgetown designates between 5 and 10 incoming students as Graduate Tax Scholars each year, based on their academic record and promise of success in the tax field."
