    I know this is a late reply but I am in that boat too. Do you know anyone who has been re-reviewed and got an interview?

    Several ppl on this thread. My theory is that people put on hold get assigned different re-review dates/periods, but I don't know for certain.

    Does anyone have any hotel recommendation that is close to the campus and is not too pricey?

    Thank you!

    Good luck to the rest of y'all!

    According to the info reported in this thread, there really haven't been waves of IIs here. IIs are sent out steadily, pretty much every day.

    I just called and they basically said no (dude from Admissions: "it's to the Adcoms discretion, we really cannot say, please refer to the website for other details"). I also asked about the Q&A webinar, since they never listed a date in that WL email, and they also didn't have an answer for that but said to sit tight, sigh.

    Here's to gently bombarding them with updates until spring!

    For the last few years, they havent accepted anyone off the waitlist till late in the cycle, so it might be a long wait. However, keep the updates going. I feel like that was the most helpful part for me getting off the waitlist

    Does anyone have an idea of how many IIs they have left? Or when they are scheduling the recent ones given? This is my absolute dream school and I really thought I had a shot :/ my update may not have been enough. The more I read about it the more I love this place agh.

    Same :( this was my number one dream school going in. Plus I'm a resident of this area and love it so much. Still holding out hope...but after bad news from both Georgetown and Maryland, I don't have a great feeling.

    Your guess is probably as good as anyone's about how many II's are left. Last year they sent them into March. FWIW lately R waves have been on alternating Fridays...so maybe another one tmw? Sigh.

    I have a good friend who is a current student who was accepted off the alternate list in march. I've seen on the GW sdn forum for the past two years people speculating that there is no movement before traffic day but that is false

    makes me nervous, even with an II... any accepted students have any input on what they believe made them stand out at their interview? :)

    Yeah my interviewer did the same but I didn't feel nervous about this as much. The interview was very conversational and in the end she stated she wanted to find out if I had the right demeanor and attitude which made sense with the topics we discussed.

    If I want to send an update but have nothing meaningful to report... any ideas? It seems like updates correlate strongly with having your application reviewed but I'm 2 years out of school and just working so it isn't like I have grade updates or research going on right now. Thoughts?

    To be serious: I didn't send an update and was still given an II after being on hold since July
