Rejected. Complete 8/14.
does GT accept pre-II updates?
Hey! For those familiar(ish) with D.C., is Uber very expensive? I don't think I can afford hotels or stay in an AirB&B near the school. Not sure if I will be saving if I stay further away.
my Ubers to/from Dulles were $30-45... did you check out the university hotel? I think it was a bit cheaper than the others in the area (maybe $160 per night?) and it is like a 3 min walk from the building where the interview was
what's their post-II acceptance rate?
You can always try a student host. I stayed at the university’s hotel. They give a discount if you say you’re coming for an interview. I dont remember the uber being more than $18 from the airport to the school.

I did, $160 is a lot for me, honestly. I found an AirB&B for less than $100, so I was wondering how much I was going to pay for an Uber. Thanks .
I did apply for a student host but too late, and I don't think I'll get one, unfortunately. It seems like the Ubers are not that expensive then. Thank you!
Does this school accept update letters?
It’s relatively expensive but I recommend staying somewhere close by and then taking the subway in. Like, you could stay in Tyson’s Corner, take the silver line, bus, then walk (only way to do it from Tyson’s). But literally, your best bet is to stay anywhere with easy access to Metro
Anyone who interviewed in mid-September and beyond here back yet?
Not yet on my end. Late September interview.
+1. it's possible we could hear this week. or it could be after thanksgiving. who knows man
hey friends, just a word of advice from some current students. if you have interviewed at Georgetown, they take into consideration whether you submitted a thank you note following your interview. not sure how much weight this will have on overall acceptance/ rejection based on your application, but it is highly encouraged!
best of luck to everyone, whether at Georgetown or any other school! sending good vibes.
II this morning! Complete late August
I'm not familiar with these thank you notes. Are they postcards? Other type of cards? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
Nah I don't think it's a dumb question. They actually have it on their applicant portal with the person we interviewed with. My assumption is it's just a letter stating your appreciation and what you learned from it- at least that's been my approach to interview thank you notes!
I never received a confirmation about the class visit. Does that mean it's still on? I don't want to show up an hour early if there's no class.
II last week! Available dates were for mid December and early January. Submitted mid August.
I dont remember receiving a confirmation for that either... but we had it.

II last week on 11/7! I was complete 10/5. They gave a list of hotels that offer discounts through Georgetown. So excited!
Trying to gauge where Georgetown ranks on y’all’s lists. Is it top choice or..?
That's a hard question to answer because there are so many factors to consider! I would say easily top 10, but potentially not top 5. That's only because I live in CA though and we have such a great school system here. What about you? Still deciding?
Dunno yet tbh, seeing how the cycle plays out. Pros and cons
interviewed late September, just got acceptance call from Dean Mitchell! So excited!!!
Got the call roughly 20 minutes ago (almost 8:30 am PST)
YAY CONGRATS !!!!!
Fellow late September interviewee here on the edge of my seat now.
Congrats to you! That's awesome news
I also interviewed late sept and hoping to hear today now....regardless of the result this has been the longest wait lol
Congratulations!!! When did you interview?
Late September as well
Sorry to cause the worry. I know the anxiety it causes when you are anxiously waiting to hear when you know others have. I hope you hear back soon, and best of luck during your cycle and remember its a LONG road.
Also, just got email confirmation of the acceptance.
Congrats! I was complete around the same time (10/3), but I haven't heard anything yet. When's the interview?
Post interview WL email. Looks like the waiting continues..... Any current students know about WL movement at georgetown and advice about how to get off of it?
It apparently has a decent amount of movement, and you have to continually demonstrate your interest through updates, emails to admissions, letters of intent (which is binding, saying if you get off waitlist you will go), letters of interest (nonbinding).
Do you mind sharing when you interviewed?
Post-II WL over email, interviewed 9/24. So thankful it was not a rejection! This was my first interview so it went a bit rough. Keeping my head up and hoping for the best for everyone else
Complete 8/30 and complete silence lol
Post-interview rejection email today. Interviewed mid-september. Very bummed but good luck to everyone else and congrats to those who got acceptances today!
Accepted by phone earlier today
Interviewed mid Sept
Accepted by phone today as well! Interviewed late September
I wonder if they're done with calls for the day....I interviewed late sept and others from my date heard back today already. I havent gotten an email yet either.
I don't know if this is helpful at all but have you checked your spam? I have heard of multiple instances where people found some news waiting for them there. I'm hoping that they're still calling so you can get some good news--last year they had calls as late as 9pm EST so don't give up hope yet!
+1, the silence is deafening! Late Sept as well, but not sure if anyone from my exact date was called/emailed
Giving me hope burb!
It is helpful!! but alas, no messages in my spam folder. Thank you for your support!!!
yeah someone posted about hearing back from my date and i reaaaaaaally hope this isn't one of those situations where some hear back today and everyone else hears back 2 weeks from now :/
Yeah me neither. I don't think any of us on here really know, but it could be one of those situations where your interviewer needs to present your file or something to the committee and maybe they couldn't make it today. Like I said though, just speculating.
My interviewer told me that the interviewers don't present or even go to the committee (unless your interviewer is on the committee, which isnt likely). They write up a report after they interview you and send it to the committee, and they add it to your overall file. So the delay most likely is they didn't come to a decision on us yet, or they didn't get to us yet.
Early January! They also offered mid-December dates.
