hm... 90 is not very high, sorry.
May be doing a 2 year program would be a good idea for you. You will improve your English language skills first; they are crucial to succeeding in the LLM program in the US...

Well, may be the 2 year program is not a bad thing for you, is it?

I'm not sure if it matters what country the applicant is from. They are definitely looking for a diverse student body, though.

Well, I just got a PDF version of the decision letter emailed to me by GULC. I've been waitlisted till March. :(


Hi glidedyouth

Don't be sad. That's not totally a bad news. Just remember you are not rejected, ok? :)

Surprisingly....I got an admission email from GULC at Sat, Dec 20, 2008 at 6:07 AM (Their time). That means they must have been working around the clock to convey good news to many applicants.

So... keep checking emails even on the weekend!

Good luck!


GULC said they would not send any decision by email....so strange they sent email to notify the good news....but CONGRATULATIONS to you!

BTW, when did your status change to "decision"? Have you got to package? if yes, by Fedex or by Air Mail?


Dear chinalawyer,

My package arrived today by air mail. The admission letter was dated December 12. Their hand-written line on the letter that " (my first name) we hope you will come to Georgetown!" added a nice personal touch.

I had been in email contact with them, and they told me that if I didn't receive the letter after 10 days, to email them with a request to have a PDF one sent to me via email...

I agree with Nokina. If some of the admitted students can not come to study for some reason, you, glidedyouth, will be admitted!
Being put on a waitlist is better than being rejected, right? :>

Did any of you, guys, have a telephone or in-person interview with the dean or dean's assistants?
Does GULC do that?

No they don´t.

I applied earlñy action and received my letter but it wasn't an acceptance letter,instead it says that i presented a strong academic profile but that they deferred my decition until they had a better sense of the aplicants pool.

I called and they said it was a good thing, that there is very few in this situation, that the council was likely waiting to have a report on demographics.

Is anyone else in this same situation?

Does anyone know what are my chances?

Action on your application was deferred until they evaluate the entirety of the applicants' pool. It's akin to being placed on the waiting list until they evaluate everybody. In other words, they will look at all the outstanding candidates for this year's entering class and will probably assess your credentials vis-a-vis the others.

Your chances of an unconditional admission depend on the quality of the other applicants for this year's class, especially applicants from your home country. As much as possible, they want every country represented in the entering class. So you're country will have at least one representative, which could be you.

Your situation is similar to that of making it as a semi-finalist in American Idol. You made it through to the next round, and at least you weren't eliminated in the earlier rounds.

Good luck. Hope you make it through the final list of entering LLMs@Georgetown Law.

Guys who are foreign educated, please could you answer my question?

When we apply we need to submit a GRADING SYSTEM SHEET (where we describe "grading and honors systems used in the academic institutions where you pursued basic and graduate law studies" and we also need to self-evaluate ourselves).

When I applied online, I uploaded My Grading sheet and sent it along with the online application.

Did I need to send it in hard copy as well??

I got rejected from GULC does that mean I have no chances of getting in to NYU and CLS?

LAW1982,

"No chances", obviously not. Admissions can't be forseen by simple reference to the US NEWS rankings.

At the same time I guess it is fair to say that CLS and possibly also NYU (though the LLM class is huge) are both more competitive than GULC. Stay positive.
