Hello all, do you know if scholarships have been announced?

I applied to the International Arbitration Scholars Program, but still did not hear from them.

Nope, I believe I was admitted in early January, and scholarship offer was made on 1 March. Applied via regular cycle.

Yes! 30k. Anyway, I think I'm going to decline enrollment, so maybe they'll offer the scholarship to someone else! So good luck to those who are still waiting!

I haven't either. But they offered me a $25,000 merit scholarship anyway which of course is not enough but it's still nice being considered from Georgetown. Personally I think students who were offered that scholarship were already contacted. That is just my opinion though since April 1 is the first tuition payment deadline, students should had been contacted already if they got that scholarship don't you think? And I'm also a bit unsure if you can get two scholarships. So if you got a merit scholarship, probably you are not going to get the arbitration scholars one. I guess they offering you a merit scholarship might be their way of letting you know you didn't get other ones :D.
Still I don't really know. You should email their admission office (the one which sent you your acceptance news) and ask them about it. I don't plan to contact them since for the moment I got my mind set that I really want to enroll (unless I change my mind, which can happen :D) . If they respond, if you can reply back what they said, I'd be grateful. Thanks in advance and good luck!

Hello guys, I applied in mid January but havent received the "alumni interview request". Should I be worried?


I don't think you should be worried at all. I think interviews are for borderline applicants (like myself). I received an interview, but I personally feel as if my application could have gone either way. I also got accepted about a week and a half after my interview.

Anyways, you should hear back soon! Don't worry too much about it.


Congrats to you! I feel like early action definitely gives you a leg up! Im currently waitlisted and I’m agonizing over it. What makes you say you’re borderline?

Hi! I just got a 15k tuition waiver to attend the LLM in International Legal Studies. Georgetown is one of my best options at the moment, does anyone know other sources of funding or perhaps a merciful soul which has decided not to enroll willing to reject a waiver in my favor? Haha

I could apply to a scholarship but has a 50k cap, so would still need around 30k to attend.

Thank you guys!

Does anybody know how open Georgetown is to asking for an extension to confirm your LL.M. application? I was accepted in January and need to respond before the end of March (doesn't matter if you are a part-time student or not), but still waiting to hear back from NYU which can take another month or longer as the application period is still open for part-time students.

I do think so too! I felt like I was a borderline applicant because I was only top 30% and only took one tax class because my school didn't offer many tax classes. I participated in the Tax Law Society and VITA during my law school years, but that was all the tax experience I had.

However, I had letters of recommendation from my dean, tax professor, and a supervising attorney I worked with. I feel like that and my personal statement/diversity statement helped round me out.

Hopefully you hear back soon! The first deadline is right around the corner and I would assume that some people are going to decline their offer!
