    Hi all,

    I interviewed at GW on 10/23 and still no word. They have told me it is typical to take 10 weeks or more (its been 10-11w since I was there) but I don't really buy it. I think its not looking good for me. Anyone else who interviewed around then heard anything?

    When did you speak to them about the status of your application? I interviewed in Sept. and got accepted in October. Out of all the schools I've applied to, GW was the quickest in their application process. Perhaps you should give them a call to see what's up? I hope this helps.

    I actually called yesterday. They said my app still hasn't been reviewed. The most they could tell me was that sometimes it depends on how quickly the interviewers return their feedback. I don't understand but for now I will take it as a bad sign...

    You should let them know what is up. I waited 10 weeks and finally contacted them. Five days later, I received an *opened* alternate list letter from them dated November 7th (it was December) that had been given three different postmarks on the envelope.

    In short, I think it was a post office problem.

    Hi have called them more times than you could believe! They keep telling me this is normal. I truly do not understand...
     
  8. The interview coordinator told us that good news comes at least 10 weeks from the day of the interview, and bad news comes much earlier... So I thought no news is good news from GW.

    Really? Wow, I hadn't heard that. Thanks for the good words...
     
  10. I interviewed on Oct 19th and I think I got the "good news" Dec 17th. Dont know how this would help you.... but maybe the committee met between our interview dates and then not for awhile longer.

    I interviewed on Oct. 26th and the only mail I recieved from them so far is a request for U.S. Citizenship documentation.

  16. I have interviewed at a few schools that I would pick above GW (Michigan, Case Western, Pitt, Georgetown).... but if none come through.... I will attend GW.

    Just a word of warning in general...all mail in and out of DC is a mess. There still are a lot of problems from the Anthrax problems. I live in DC and my GWU acceptance was lost in the mail for a few weeks...I got it one month after it was postmarked (it was sent around 9 weeks after my interview). It was past that mandatory date that they impose as a reply date, but they were very understanding and flexible with it.
    Good luck.....

    I agree, the mail in DC is a mess. I live in the DC area and after I submitted my secondary, I did not hear from GW for a while. I contacted them in mid Dec. to see if there had been a problem with my app. Come to find out, the decision to grant me an interview had been made before Thanksgiving and for some reason, I had not received the letter. I think that you should definitely inquire about your app. if it's been awhile. Good luck!
