Got an email from Kevin Nies this morning and an acceptance shortly after! OOS, LM 66 with a heavy amount of volunteer/leadership/shadowing/research experiences. Late November interview, sent in one letter of intent in mid-February and another one in mid-March. Best of luck to everyone!

Got accepted by email today! Maryland resident, LM 73.5, interviewed in January. I sent a letter of interest after my interview but that's really it. Unsure if I will choose GW over my current acceptance.

When do you have to decide by?

I just received an email asking if I would be interested in accepting an offer if one becomes available. It also asks where else I have been accepted... I think this is different than the "highly likely to be accepted" email. Does everyone on the waitlist receive this?

I think it’s the same email

Is this email a blanket email at the same time each day? Or do they send it out individually?

Reading into posts and estimating, it seems there hasn't been too much waitlist movement. Just on threads there has been about 7 acceptances. Reading the waitlist support thread, most schools take 20-30 of waitlists if not up to 40. All depends on how well they do with students accepting.

What I'm saying is hopefully there is a good amount of movement coming soon!

I really hope so cause GW is my dream school but based on this thread about 10 people have already been accepted off WL. Which is already way more than this time last year if you look back at old threads

I really hope this is the case as well. I also wonder if they go in order of interview? I'm assuming earlier interviews have been re-reviewed more even though they say that isn't the case.

Just received that email asking whether I would accept an offer of admission from Kevin Nies, so hopefully I'll get off the waitlist soon! Interviewed in mid-February. Super psyched about this school!!

Got one too! I told everyone I couldn't control my excitement...I really hope this is an acceptance LOL.

EDIT: Accepted OH MY GOD this is unreal I'm crying, first acceptance after a very tough cycle. ORM with below average stats and no crazy extracurriculars. GW is truly holistic admissions so to all future applicants with less than stellar stats, do not shy away from applying here!!!

Congrats to everyone but this is really discouraging. I just counted 16 or 17 people who got off the waitlist on this thread alone, and there are probably many others who lurk or aren't on SDN. I must be at the bottom of the bottom tier :unsure:

If you haven’t done so recently, I would send another update reaffirming your interest.
I think they will continue to take people off the WL especially those that show continued interest

never ended up speaking with someone but I did sent that email asking to on Friday and then was accepted the following Monday, but I doubt that has any correlation. I also sent a letter of intent a few weeks prior.

Accepted last week off the WL! Interviewed in December. So happy! GW is a dream and I love DC!!

Contact with Admissions post waitlist: Sent the update to stay on the waitlist, met with Kevin Nies in person around a week after the first alternate list webinar, submitted a LOI and had an additional LOR sent.

Who do you address the email to?
