    We just saw my D’s USPS informed delivery postage via email. It looks like she didn’t get in. According to previous years, Georgetown letters have a postage of 48-50 cents if the student is deferred/waitlisted and 68/70 cents if they are accepted. Please post your postage/results here.

    That may not be true. I have read old posts that said there were acceptances even with the lower postage amount. Some have theorized that it is the amount of postage necessary to travel the distance. So those who live on the east coast wouldn't need as much postage as those who live out west. Good luck!

    [aB][asize=4][acolor=#FFA500]Decision: Deferred[/color][/size][/b]

    With the new postal rates and last years results combined, the deferrals to RD should be $0.50 and the acceptances $0.65. It would be nice to hear from an acceptance to confirm. The other thread had a deferral @ $0.50.

    Since the website says we get it by the 15th, will it be available on our online portals?

    My DD got accepted! We haven't received the physical letter yet - we live about 1 hour of driving away from GU, so hopefully the letter will be in mail this afternoon. We saw someone posted in Reddit that the decision was also available in the portal, so we checked and there it is!

    RESULTS: Early Action Deferred

    Objective:

    SAT I (breakdown): 1500 (750/750)

    SAT II: 680 Math II (Retaking for a perfect score), 680 US History

    GPA: Our school only reports WGPA out of 100, mine is a 97.54 and I got all As except for a B in AB Calc this MP.

    Rank: Not calculated by my school

    AP (place score in parenthesis): APUSH (5), APHUGE (4), AP Enviro (4)

    Senior Year Course Load:
    AP Gov, AP Spanish, AP Calc AB,
    -Half yr courses-
    Women's Literature and Contemporary Novels (Liberal arts college format elective English courses), CPR (Our health course), Public Speaking, Intro to Journalism, CP Astronomy, Managing Personal Finance (grad requirement)

    Major Awards (USAMO, Intel, etc.):
    AP Scholar, National Honor Society, Like 5-6 Model UN Awards



    Subjective:

    Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Model UN (Senior Officer), Debate Club (Varsity Captain and Co-Founder), Student Council (Whole school elected Officer-Historian), Karate (Black & Red belt in Tang Soo Do), Jazz band guitarist, Campaign intern for Congressional bid that won in 2018, Digital Arts Club, Co Teacher for local Nature Classes for little kids, Golfer (Recreational and technically an alternate for the Varsity team)

    Job/Work Experience: Babysitting throughout my Junior yr consistently for a family once a week, Microsoft Excel programming for an orthopedic firm in town this winter

    Volunteer/Community service: My community service is really through my activities (NHS, Student Council, community garden) in which I've volunteered a lot of time to. I also volunteered for the Congressional campaign as above mentioned.

    Summer Activity: I took a class on Natural Resources in the Global Market at Columbia this summer. I also spent a lot of time doing research for a local exploratory committee for a community leader considering a Commissioners campaign. He chose not to run due to family things, but I put it on my app because it was a lot of time and effort with gathering voter data, working on mapping with Map GIS and more.


    Essay: My personal essay was about losing my aunt to suicide while in the 4th grade and the event influencing my discovery of politics as a passion/outlet, in which I have become motivated on healthcare and mental health policy.

    Supplements: Special talents essay about my graphic arts skills, my extracurricular essay was talking about learning how to demonstrate leadership through my Model UN activities, and my SFS essay revolved around climate change


    Recommendations:

    Teacher Rec #1: My AP Enviro teacher, really kind guy who I did a lot of important research projects with and knew my academic commitment

    Teacher Rec #2: My sophomore English teacher (yes ik that's a controversial decision) who is really personable and I have had the most vulnerable and honest conversations out of all my teachers. She helped check my grammar on my essays before writing her rec letter and I think probably highlighted my personality traits. She's like lowkey my best friend as a teacher so.

    Counselor Rec: He's an uber dry guy but I've been the most committed to college with him and he's seen my brute passion/drive. He also told me he mentioned some personal struggles both academically and at home that he saw me overcome in a really positive way. This one makes me nervous but he said it went well.


    Applied for Financial Aid?: Yes
    Intended Major: International Political Economy, SFS
    State (if domestic applicant): NJ
    School Type: Public
    Ethnicity: White
    Gender: Male
    Income Bracket: Middle Class

    Strengths: SAT score, personal essay
    Weakness: Subject test scores, counselor recommendation, possible extracurriculars (I was never nominated for awards or youth leadership programs)
