A few days ago, I received a piece of mail from Georgetown University. I had been accepted EA into SFS back in December, so I had been receiving various pieces of mail from Georgetown for some time now. The letter started off like any other form letter, so I read the first few lines and put it aside on my desk
Today, I decided to actually read the letter. I realized that it wasn't a form letter that they sent to every student who was accepted Early Action.
I had submitted a music resume along with my application (but no music supplement CD because Georgetown only wanted CD's from prospective music majors). The letter specifically said, "the committee was particularly impressed with your musical talents," and then it went on to describe the various music groups/ensembles/opportunities available at Georgetown.
Also, the letter was not from the admissions office, it was specifically from the President, John DeGioia. And it ended with this sentence: "the Georgetown community looks forward to welcoming you next fall."
Did other students who were accepted EA that had mentioned music on their application receive something similar? Did other students who were accepted EA that excelled in activities other than music receive a letter that corresponded to their activity?
I'm curious as to see if my letter is a unique case or if several others have received something similar to the letter I received.
