My daughter got deferred but knew it was a long shot and is excited for the deferral.

She’s 4.0 unweighted with average extracurriculars and Honors and AP classes.

Son deferred. Same stat 4.0 uw with great Rec and ecs. Not looking optimistically on it as we had understood that you either got in or were deferred. No rejections. Any confirmation of that ?

There’s no spot for it on the application, so how do you send your high school transcript to Georgetown? Or does a counselor have to do it?

hs counselor sends it

Correct. GU doesn’t reject anyone in the early round. Even stellar students get deferred to RD round. Hang in there!

did anyone else get an email about completing the georgetown application that said
“Georgetown will gladly accept submission of the Georgetown Supplement through 11:59pm ET on Friday, January 14th” ?

does this mean they’ve extended the deadline of the supplement from january 10th?

My DD did, and she would like to confirm it as well, but I couldn’t find any information on GU’s website. Did anyone else got the email? Thanks!

I applied EA so I can’t comment on the RD deadline for Georgetown, but I’ve had other RD schools do this the last couple weeks without changing their official deadline. It likely just means they may be slightly below their target application numbers, so for those who have already started their application (which for georgetown also means you’ve already paid) they’re given a discrete extension.

If I took two SATs and two ACTs, but I only want my SATs to be seen, do I still have to submit both ACT scores as well? Also, my first SAT was around a 1300 and my second was 1500+, so I was wondering: how do they consider the best score? Is weight placed on the lower scores or is more weight placed on the top score?

Georgetown requires that every single test you’ve sat for you submit. That means every single SAT or ACT must be submitted. Obviously, a student who submits a 1300 and a 1500+ may be evaluated different than one who submits one 1500+ score.

My D was connected with an interviewer. She reached out and the person never responded. About a week later she advised admissions and they gave her another person. She contacted the second person and they never responded. It’s been over a week now. She has not had this experience with any other school. Is the common for Georgetown? Should she request a third interviewer? She doesn’t want to be annoying but its frustrating when people don’t respond.

I also remember that Georgetown encouraged us to reach out if our interviewer didn’t reach out within a week, so if anything, she’s following directions LOL

I definitely think she should reach out again. She’s not being annoying at all. An interview is a great way to showcase your interest and talent.

Everyone got email regarding Financial Aid info session?

Will decisions be available online this year or will they go back to mailing them?

Oh wow, did georgetown use to mail them? I had no idea!

They used to mail them via snail mail pre-covid. I wonder if they’ll go back to it this year or if they’ll release them online for now on.
