    Same here... in fact I'd never even heard of it before SDN. Most of my secondaries were submitted within 2-3 weeks but at least four or five will have been submitted after well over 6 weeks as I was traveling when I received them. Hopefully it won't affect my application too negatively!

    Ah. My mistake. I would still apply if I was in a similar situation, but I'm wreckless.

    Haha, yea- I didn't expect to garner this much attention, but I really appreciate the congrats from everyone. You're right; I've become pretty passionate about Gtown over the past year or so. It seems like such an exciting school...I can't wait to see it in person. Congrats to you as well!

    Yea, I guess that was cheating on my part. MJ is pretty great.

    Hey Famous Steve,

    Out of curiosity, how many times have you posted since the beginning of the app cycle? :D

    Just giving you a hard time...you are passionate about this and you deserve the invite!! Way to go!

    Most of my posts were in both the 2016 thread and my MCAT thread ;).

    And thank you! Let's not diminish everyone else though: there have been a handful of other invites as well. Good job to you guys! Hopefully I'll see some of you on 9/12.

    I imagine Steve was clutching his computer after seeing his G-town interview invite in much the same manner as MJ is hugging that trophy :laugh:

    Congrats everyone with interviews!

    Steve - you and I have identical stats and seem to be having opposite luck with Georgetown and GWU. Complete at Gtown on 7/15 as well and still no word.

    Yes, it was rather similar haha. I think it will be even more similar if I get an acceptance letter, though.

    Don't worry- there are more waves to come at Gtown. I was upset when I didn't get an invite two weeks ago, then, bam! I definitely wouldn't count yourself out at this school. As for GW, it seems like they are passing out those holds rather frequently, so if you have been placed on hold, I wouldn't sweat that. If you have an interview there- congrats!

    Anyone know the percentages on admitted/interviewed students? Other threads have it from US News, but I don't know how to find them.

    This is because you have to pay a bit to get the extended data.

    Total: (Last year)
    11549 applied
    1151 interviewed
    420 acceptances
    196 enrolled

    So 36% of interviewees are accepted.

    I've been thinking these numbers over. People often mention that Georgetown waitlists/places people in the "competitive applicant" pool post-interview with a high frequency. However, those numbers argue otherwise. My question is- does the 420 acceptance figure include those that are accepted off of the waitlist/competitive applicant pool? I would assume that it does, but one can't be entirely sure.

    Assuming that it does, I wonder what the (accepted outright):interviewed ratio is. Of course, getting in off of the competitive applicant pool suffices, but I think I speak for everyone when I say that I would like to avoid the waitlist game :).

    It was posted on here (I think) that after a round of interviews they accept 25%, wait list 50%, and reject 25%. At least I think it was this thread.

    EDIT: Maybe it was last year's thread.

    I think you should go for it, unless the secondary fee is a big issue for you. Especially if your stats look average or better compared to the school.

    Congratulations to everyone with interviews so far! For those still waiting or in the process of submitting, good luck. I have had a few PM's that I just returned. I apologize for the late response, but we started classes a couple weeks ago and things have been crazy busy, but now I'm starting to get back in the groove.

    I will be more than happy to offer tips for interviews here and what to expect. Good luck and I really hope you become part of the Georgetown family. As you will see on interview day, this is a great place to be. If you want to meet prior to your interview, let me know and we can meet a day before on campus!

    Good luck and congratulations! Go Future HOYAS!

    Just as an update: For ALL of those that get an Interview, PM for some Platinum Nuggets of Information. I will pass on the torch of knowledge! It will really give you guys a leg up on your non-SDN competition. :)

    I may take you up on this! I am staying with a good friend of mine for the weekend out there, and I'm sure he would like to check out the school as well. Also, getting my feet wet before interview day would be nice too.

    Congrats, Steve! Just received my secondary invite a few days ago. I definitely recommend talking a walk through campus to get a feel for the area, because the campus is beautiful and HUGE. I visited DC a couple weeks ago, and it took me a while because I couldn't find a campus map and my phone died while I was there, but the students are super nice!!

    :luck:
