    just wondering if anybody has gotten into GW already? That has been my only interview and wondering if they are sending those nice fat letters in the mail yet.

    I interviewed on 9/20 at GW. They told me 8-10 weeks. This past week, (my 4 weeks mark) I received a letter saying that the preliminary AMCAS they had received did not state my UGrad. They asked me to send or fax whatever page it was from my application. I have since been verified, so I called and asked them if they'd like a verified application for their records. They said sure and that a decision would arrive within a few weeks.

    atdeben,

    Did you get an acceptance letter (thin or thick envelope)? When did you have your interview with GW?

    I am so nervous. I really hope I get something from GWU soon. The wait is literally killing me(not to be too overly dramatic) especially because I now know GW is sending notices out.

    Atdeben, I'm sorry I'm asking too many questions but when was your AMCAS application verified? Thanks again!

    Sub. 7/6
    Verified 9/24
    But, I'm pretty sure GW has not received anything from AMCAS (I know they didn't have any of my stuff - I had to send it to them)

    atdeben, I hope you don't mind my asking. I am very much interested in GW and I have pretty much the same stat as you do. Are you a minority applicant? Also, are you from DC? Thanks so much and lots of congrats. :)

    What were your stats and how did your interview go? I hear that GWU is very kind to those they waitlist and that they accept a huge number of the waitlist, so it is not necessarily a bad thing.

    how are you going to pay for GW? Do you think they'll help us in every way to get the money we need??? or do we have to do outside research on getting money? I am dirt poor and worried but happy that I'm accepted for Class of 2006. Are you gonna attend?

    my stats are 3.93 gpa and 31T on the MCATS. My interviews seemed to go well...I didn't do amazing, but nothing really went wrong. I've heard the same thing about their waitlist.

    I interviewed on 9/25. I'm happy to say, my notification of a waitlist at GW was followed a week later by an acceptance to Pritzker!!!

    Kermit, I am in your exact shoes. I interviewed the same day (but have no idea who you are!) and have not heard anything. I am in So Cal; maybe mail issues would effect deliveries way out here. I read an article yesterday that said a lot of D.C. mail is being rerouted through Ohio or somewhere equally middle America. Let us know when you hear anything.

    I interviewed the 20th too. I'm from Miami. I wish I knew the people on this thread posting. I think I know southern cali guy. I havn't heard sh;t either. Hopefully it's just anthrax delays. I was thinking about calling GW and asking them on my status considering the locality and the mailing system in the area. Maybe they could tell me some good news over the phone instead of the mail.

    I wrote a while ago that I interviewed on 9/20. About a month ago, GW requested a specific page of my AMCAS and when I called and told them I had been recently verified, they requested my entire app. Just last week (11/1), I called and Darrell told me that there was an extreme backlog with the mail going into and out of GW even though they didn't use the Brentwood facility. He told me he did not have my app so I would need to fax it to them to have a decision before Thanksgiving. Hope this helps!

    I got put on their alternate list today. I'm not disappointed but I wanted to get in already. Hopefully I'll hear some really good news from them in a couple of weeks. Just gonna have to wait and see.

    What exactly does the "alternate list" mean? Is this a waitlist, where movement won't occur until May? Or will one's application be looked at continuously?

    I got the waitlist today - from what I understand, it gets heavy movement in June.

    I am confused, is their an alternate list and then a separate waitlist or are they one and the same? (For GW that is)
