    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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.
