    You can tell your rejection/acceptance immediately based on the stamp. They use an electronic postage machine that marks how much it cost. If it reads 49 cents, then they only sent you one piece of paper (like when I was deferred, and probably rejection mail as well). However, if it was 69(?) cents, then it had both and you're in.

    Rejected by Vanderbilt
    Accepted by Cornell, Brown (Likely), UCLA, and Boston College
    Waitlisted by U Chicago

    Deferred EA by Georgetown...this process is a complete crapshoot. I'm so curious to her from the rest of my schools though (especially G town!)

    I know this is gonna sound stupid and annoying. But if ranks 3 and 10 got deferred EA from Gtown does that basically mean I (18/380) will be rejected...

    Sorry my self esteem level is just so low rn

    @pianogeek Not at all! Each application is independent, and Gtown looks at the individual!
    Stay hopeful. I'm like 9 in my class and just got into Vandy but number 2 was waitlisted.

    All Gtown admissions letters look like rejection letters at first glance. The only difference is that the acceptance ones have a blue piece of paper in them concerning housing. So of course, they'll be a tad bit thicker.

    @stilchs4, International is going to come first in an email, so I'm not sure if it ultimately matters. That being said, it would be difficult to tell you the postage amount because it varies country to country (as well as package size).

    Does Georgetown let anyone know when the letters are in the mail? (like via twitter, or Facebook?)

    Georgetown Admissions doesn't really encourage me to want to go to their school.
    1. The interview was a bust; she was a transfer student who couldn't answer many of my questions.
    2. Their admissions responses are so delayed.
    3. They don't update their materials on your portal when they're submitted, but chide you when you call and inquiry about it.
    4. Their application is independent (non commonapp or universal) and is more complicated and ridiculous than the others.

    They're lucky Georgetown is such a reputable and established institution. They're lucky that they have incredible resources readily available to their remarkable students. If they didn't, I wouldn't care about my decision.

    Butttt I will say, getting them through the mail is sort of cool. I feel so old fashioned. And there was one dude in admissions who was really helpful. Soooo kudos for that?

    hi does anyone know if georgetown values being a first generation college student more than other schools? because on their common data set it says first gen is very important, and i don't think I've seen any other school say that
