    Addressed it to the individual interviewer but also made a passing remark thanking everyone involved. Kinda like “I appreciate the time you and others in the admissions office bla bla bla..”

    Question about update letters: one of my family members recently passed away and I am taking a leave of absence from my volunteer position to support my family through this time. My estimate is that I will have lost about 60 hours of volunteering due to this leave (out of ~1500 hours reported on AMCAS). Should I mention this change in plans in my next update letter? Or is this too personal? I want to avoid irrelevant issues or updates that may appear negative. Thanks to anyone who has advice on this!

    Not an expert, but I don't think it's necessary to include! It's one of those things that seems like if you were asked about it, you can tell them, but I don't think you need to explain why future hours aren't matching up with the original AMCAS report, since I think adcoms know those are likely to change. My condolences for your loss, sending prayers for your family in this time.

    Is there typically any mobility on the waitlist here?

    Did anyone get a financial aid email that says dear admitted applicant, but hasn't got an acceptance mail yet?

    First week of December interviewer, I know Georgetown said to wait 8-10 weeks, but are they on the slower side right now?

    Several of my other schools are 2-3 weeks past the upper end of wait time post-II

    I interviewed in the first half of November and still haven't heard anything so it seems like they are on the slower side...

    I got the email also but I was accepted in November. Maybe foreshadowing but I would say not to read into it too much and psych yourself out.

    Also to all those wondering about timelines- I was accepted mid November and interviewed late September, so it was about week 8 I think but it's possible they slowed down because of winter/ Christmas break or because it's later in the cycle, but regardless as long as people haven't posted they've been accepted from your interview day you are fine.

    So has anyone heard from early November interviews? As in the first week? I know a few who’ve had waitlists, but so far no one with acceptances or rejections. Anyone?

    I interviewed last week of October, has anyone who interviewed then heard anything? People who interviewed after me are getting some answers I see; I just hope I’m not reading too much into things- thanks :)

    How would you describe the student environment at GT?

    On interview day I couldn’t really tell how students liked it. My student panel seemed like they were gunners and toxic.

    Hey everyone--I received an acceptance voicemail this Tuesday morning, but still haven't received an email or had a portal change about my acceptance. Is this normal???

    I'm not sure who was on your student panel, but that most certainly has not been my experience. In a class of 200 students, yes there will be some gunners who study nonstop and feel compelled to get a 90%+ on every exam (and then brag about it). However, I know most people in my class, and only 4-5 people would I describe as being gunners.

    My experience has been that Georgetown has a very collaborative environment. The vast majority of people have a simple goal: to pass each course. This means sharing valuable resources on the class google drive. This means asking questions and sending helpful reminders in the class groupme. Frankly, I found it very easy to make friends here at Georgetown because we tend accept genuinely nice and compassionate people.

    If you have any further concerns or questions, feel free to DM me.

    This is normal. Dean Mitchell calls everyone individually and the email/portal update sometimes comes the next day somtimes it comes ~ a week later. He wants to make sure it's more personal and you find out from a call instead of by email. Anything more than a week, send admissions an email but if he made the call don't worry there's no mistake.

    Don't let imposter syndrome takeover already!

    Congrats. Seems like you got the admitted applicant financial aid Email. Is there anyone who did not get the email but got accepted since last Tuesday?
