does Georgetown accept athlete recruits EA?

<p>does Georgetown accept athlete recruits EA? i heard that they do not but i'm not sure</p>

<p>^^^No, I don't believe they do - as I recall, they accept their athletic recruits RD, but have their own version of a Likely Letter.</p>

<p>You could go to the Georgetown page and ask:
Georgetown</a> University - College Confidential</p>

<p>Also, to save you some time: the Georgetown admissions office was interviewed in a local magazine a few years back and had this to say about recruiting: </p>

<p>Coaches give you a rank-ordered list of whom they would love to see get in. Universities in turn—which have hired the coaches and invested resources in having competitive athletic teams—ask the admissions process to respond in varying numbers. It’s a balancing act.</p>

<p>Not a lot of admissions people are pleased with the degree to which athletics is a big part of our world. But in our culture, competitive athletics is a big deal. It’s part of the community spirit, part of the school identity.</p>

<p>I would say there are probably at most 10 percent of our students who will get an athletic tip in the admissions process. A tip can be significant or not, depending on the athlete’s talent and the profile of the sport. We’ll tip a bit for our sailing team, which happened to be first in the country last year, but we’ll tip a lot more for men’s and women’s basketball, which are big spectator sports that carry the spirit of the school.</p>

<p>What worries me is that I consider the athletic world almost out of control. By the middle of August, our lacrosse coach is saying, “I’ve got to say something to these kids because they’re otherwise going to go to UVa or wherever.” Before these kids even start their senior year, we’re supposed to commit to them.</p>

<p>Bottom line - it's a D1 school in a major conference. I can't conceive Georgetown NOT accepting at least some athletes EA - otherwise it would lose athletes to all the schools with ED.</p>

<p>I know several athletes recruited to Georgetown in two different sports. All were very good students--Georgetown caliber. They were all advised to apply RD, but received the aforementioned Georgetown "Likely Letter."</p>
