    My Christmas card came today. It is really nice, handwritten, and has a specific tidbit about something in my application mentioned in it.

    So they include personal bits about your own application? That's pretty cool.
  • pswibpswib Registered User Posts: 318 Member
    Yes, I started a big community service project a year or so ago, and the person who wrote my Christmas card mentioned it.

    lol the admission officer mentioned my community service too.
    then next comes the dreadful tuition costs...

    That is so sweet! I bet everyone at the admissions office has awful hand cramps now

    Yep, I actually saw the adcoms signing the Christmas cards as we were making phone calls. I'm told they include bits of personal info (although mine last year was pretty generic). They also vary the card they send based on what you filled in under "religion" on the application. I put down Christian and got a "Merry Christmas," which I'm told varies based on what you put down. Get used to these little letters including bits of information from your applications: you'll be getting three or four more between here and May 1st with bits talking about why Georgetown fits perfectly with [that thing you wrote your short essay about].

    i got mine. s/he responded to the joke i put in the special skills section. Greatly appreciated! I know i shouldn't be swayed by gimmicky things like this, but it honestly adds to the appeal of Georgetown. It seems like they really want me.

    doesn't affect the quality of education though. :(

    I got a "Happy Holidays" one. Ms. Timlin (the European reader) wished me a "Happy Hanukkah!"...I guess that's my special application tidbit.
  • simpson98simpson98 Registered User Posts: 749 Member
    Ahh! I still haven't gotten one, what's going on?
  • kayheartkayheart Registered User Posts: 95 Junior Member
    I received mine yesterday! Ms. (or Mrs.?) Lia Glavin wrote a little note about my involvement with my school's newspaper. How cute! =]
