    Today I received a letter that placed me in the highly select pool a Georgetown. During the orientation, Mrs. Sullivan said that if we were placed in this pool, we should write a letter. Who should this letter be addressed to? I think she mentioned a name, I don't remember it. An address would be really helpful. What should the contents of this letter be? Is this letter equivalent to a letter of intent or is it more lax than that? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Send it to the admissions office. You can find the addresses on your photocopy of the secondary application - it is different depending on whether you send regular mail or FedEx.

    Yes, the letter Mrs. Sullivan is talking about is a letter of intent. Basically, if you are put into the highly select pool and Georgetown is your top choice, you write a letter explaining this to them and giving reasons for why Georgetown is your top choice. Typically people also say they will withdraw their other applications and decline other acceptances they have gotten or will get. If Georgetown is not your top choice, then you don't need to write a letter (of course this also means you will not get off the waitlist). They are looking to take people off the waitlist that really want to go to Georgetown and it is their first choice. These are the people they consider for acceptance from the highly select pool (and it is also why they don't call it a wait list, because if it is not your first choice and you don't write a letter, there won't be an acceptance coming to "wait" for).
