Decision: Deferred!

The wait is over. Er, I mean, the wait begins, or continues, or something like that. I received a letter today saying that the Committee on Admissions at the Georgetown University Law Center "has chosen to defer your final decision until we have a better sense of the entire applicant pool." Uh, thanks, I guess.

Their explanation for this is that GULC "received over 3,500 early applications this year, an increase of over thirty percent." I wonder if that' 30% increase in applications is happening across the board. I also wonder if I need to start aiming a little lower. I have a foot-tall stack of promotional materials from schools all over the country inviting me to apply. Maybe I should rethink my choices...

Anyway, this is a good thing, really, because I was getting a little too complacent about this law school business—I needed a good reminder that it's all highly competitive and no part of it will be easy and all that. We all need a good kick in the pants—or the gut—once in a while, don't we?

"A Final decision will be mailed no later than Friday, February 28, 2003." Thanks.

Well when they see their whle applicant pool they will see they should have snapped you up early!

Good luck on the rest of the apps!

Maybe not lower, but different. Every school has varying profiles on what they want in their applicant classes. Just be diligent, you'll find your place :)
