    Just received the "alternate list" letter from GWU. What does that mean?
    Does anybody know?
    Please post if anybody has any idea what "being placed on alternate list" means. :( :( <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    George Washington's alternate list is simply another name for their wait list. GW has a rather high turnover rate of accepted candidates who decline it for other schools, and I believe they begin to dip into their alternate list sometime in late spring. If you are keen on attending GW, I strongly suggest that you let them know this, perhaps through a letter of interest/intent.

    Essentially, it means that if all the prettier girls at the school turn them down, then they'll ask you to prom. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    Just wait for your EVMS acceptance. Then you can tell GW to piss off. :D That is, if you liked EVMS better than GW. I withdrew from GW a while back, so I never had the opportunity to visit the school.

    good luck

    You'll be fine. Just have to wait it out. You are not screwed at all. I haven't even gotten interviewed. I'm on hold to interview so you at least interviewed. Since they do got a high turnover rate, you gotta good chance of getting in.

    Good Luck!
    :)

    Thanks for the support guys.
    Swampman: How did your interview go? Did you have an easy interviewer? How long was it?
    Are you going to the UMd vs. UF game tonight? Accept my sincere condolences for the loss that you guys will be suffering tonight.
    Bye

If so, you are playing FSU tonight...not UF (men's bbal, not women's). I hope you destroy them like the roaches you dissected in your neuro class (or whatever class that was)!!!

    My interview went very well. One of my interviewers had to leave 1/2way through the interview, which I thought was odd. It was my best interview to date. I'll post the outcome when it comes. Hopefully we can both celebrate! :D
