Yesterday I got a rejection letter from Georgetown (post-interview), which surprised me because the school was pretty much my safety (i know Georgetown is not really a safety, but I shot really, really high). I figured I had a really good shot there considering I've already interviewed at harvard, upenn, duke, dartmouth, and uva. My friend told me that Georgetown is really into accepting students who have them as their #1 choice, which definitely wasn't the case for me. Anyway, his logic goes that Georgetown will reject people who they don't believe will matriculate. Does anyone have any thoughts on this logic? When I think about my interview, I definitely did not give the impression that they were even in my top 5 choices, and I didn't have very good reasons for wanting to go there during my interview or in my secondary. Plus, my interviewer asked me where else I applied and based on my list he could tell that Georgetown was a "safer" school. Then I never sent any thank you cards or the love letter that mrs. sullivan was talking about (which I didn't really understand anyway). So what do you guys think? Any chance I was rejected because they didn't think I would come, or am I just trying to come up with an excuse to protect my fragile ego?
