    I'm in the CAP as of a week ago. I'm trying to figure out if I really would go to GU...if I should write a letter expressing my interest. I really admire the curriculum and think DC would be a great way to develop my interests in public health, healthcare reform, and healthcare QI. The price difference is pretty much the only thing that makes me hesitate...I think GU would be about $120K-130K (over 4 years) more than my state option right now. But I'm sure that's the case with many of us.

    Can any current (or future too) students talk about some specific experiences/advantages that you think make GU worth the extra expense? Perhaps some things you don't think you could have gotten at your state institution? What specifically about Georgetown made you actually choose it over other options? Thanks.

    I heard that last year, SMPs heard back on May15, so it really shouldn't be too long.

    I think the decisions came out last Friday. I wonder how many they accepted and how many are hopeful to get in off the wait-list considering they now also have the George Mason SMP kids to choose from....

    Has anyone been accepted off the CAP after the 15th? Does admissions still highly encourage a letter of intent rather than a letter of interest (I still don't know if i'm ready to commit to Georgetown, but I'm afraid that will affect my ability to get off the CAP)

    No ones gotten in in a while? Should we send multiple letters of interest? And to the post above intent is obviously more powerful especially at this stage

    I'm Jewish too. My interviewer wasn't Catholic either. Gtown seems pretty open
