Anyone on the waitlist and know whether there is some sort of pecking order?

There's high-priority and everyone else. you get to find out which one you're on in about a month or two -- they'll send out a letter. The year before last, there was no movement from the waitlist. I know there was some last year, because my friend managed to make it in.

As Epigastric said, there is a regular and a high priority list. If you really want to go to GW, make sure you express your love for the school early, honestly and often. :luck:

GWU usually tells applicant it will take them 6-8 weeks to reach a decision. Thats pretty average especially during the middle of the applicant season. Therefore, if you interviewed on Jan 5, you still might have a while to wait. I would wait until 6-7 weeks after your interview date before I get too worried.

I interviewed mid-december and heard back recently...waitlisted.

I agree about the high-priority/all others comment, but I know of someone who got in 2 years ago off the waitlist and was not high-priority so there are exceptions to every rule.

Don't know just yet. Might depend on fin aid package and if I get interviews at any other schools. Right now though, GWU is my top choice.

ditto. came yesterday.

all of you who are in the GW waiting list..are you desperate to go to GW? is it your first choice? I am just trying to get an idea about how many of the waiting list people have GW as their first choice.

I am also on the GW post interview waitlist.

I interviewed right before Thanksgiving and found out the second week in January.

Is anyone rejected post interview?
