I was wondering the same thing, I submitted an update before I got my waitlist decision and then i sent one in a couple weeks ago after my decision, not sure when is the right time to send in another one and also idk what to say on it because I feel like I've said everything lol
This is the exact same thing as I did, one awkwardly right before getting waitlisted and one 2 weeks after hearing. Got in 3 weeks after my 2nd letter so I wouldn't send another unless there's something substantial to tell them.

Congrats on the A! Do you mind sharing when you got off the WL? I sent letter in early January, so I am wondering when I should send another.

How long does it typically take for them to get back to us with a decision

I’m sorry to hear that. Best of luck with the rest of your schools.
But to clarify, my admissions decision was an A. Interviewed 8/18 and heard via phone 11/9.

Can any current students speak to the environment and student culture at GUSOM? How competitive is it? Do students generally get along/become friends?

There's hardly any competition between students. We share notes, anki decks, study tips, etc with everyone. Students are generally very friendly with one another as well. The school is true P/F for everything, which brings down the stress significantly... I couldn't imagine doing this any way besides P/F

Check your email, I got an email/portal update a couple hours after I posted this. It turned out to be just another waitlist designation though.... the classic response I've been getting this cycle lol
Whaaat I just checked and have no email yet, but I thought my II went badly so I'm taking that as a bad sign.

No, It's not the same as the portal. You have to set up your NetID first and then change the password from the default that was assigned to you. Then you can use the NetID and your new password to login into MyAccess

Sigh... Interviewed on 01/16/2020 and was wait-listed this morning. Anyone know the percentage of people getting accepted from wait list?

Received a 30k scholarship, does anyone know where that stands for their financial aid. Think I can ask for more or is that probably on the higher end?

Is Georgetown known for not being generous with aid? My package was just loans :/
They’re definitely known for being expensive and not generous with aid.. They don’t do merit aid at all, so any aid you would have gotten would have been purely need based. I didn’t get any need-based aid either. I already have a lot of student debt so unfortunately this means I’m not going to be able to go to GT. Which sucks because I fit this school’s mission to a T and I really loved it. Oh well, I’m grateful just to have gotten an acceptance in the first place.

I was in the same boat so I decided to join the Air Force through the HPSP. It's a pretty good deal if you are interested in serving your country as a physician for a few years after you're done with residency. GUSoM has a really strong military presence and has the highest number of HPSP recipients per school (second to USUHS). And we have a lot of support from administration too. Hit me up if you have any questions and congratulations on being accepted to GUSoM.
