    I'm in! This was my first choice so I'll hopefully be seeing you all on the Hilltop this Fall!

    Georgetown McCourt Priority Waitlist

    Were you waitlisted for DSPP? I haven't seen MPP notifications come out

    haha I know! I just asked if there was a general date as I will be out of the country with no email access for a few days beginning tomorrow. which, in retrospect, will probably be healthy for me 😂

    I cracked and called admissions. A student was covering the phones as they were in a meeting so hopefully meeting about decisions??

    Same, it looked like years past have been between 3/4- and 3/8

    Anyone who got an admissions decision, was it for MPP?

    Their program is all at night which is good if you are planning to work or intern during the day. I was given no funding from them as they base all of their funding decisions based on undergraduate GPAs (last time I inquired, it was 3.5) even though I've been out of undergrad for 7 years and I had a 4.0 in the graduate degree I already have. I deferred for obvious reasons; to apply to other programs.

    I looked three years worth of results and it seems next week or the first week of March. I'm crossing my fingers! I've had pretty good luck reaching out to the via email, so you may want to try that. They have a general grad mail address

    This is on my backup list because i'm local to the school & they have a pretty far out final deadline. If you don't mind, can you post your stats?

    That must be a new thing this year, I don't remember seeing that on the applications page last cycle.

    From last year's results search, it looks like first week of March is when priority decisions came out.

    I didn't see a thread yet! T-minus 13 days until the Priority deadline.
  14. I was waitlisted at my top choice last cycle and have chosen to apply again after improving my resume and (hopefully) my test scores. My SOP from my original application was possibly the best thing I have, personally, ever written so I am incredibly proud of it. During the second portion of the SOP, the requirement of the school was to explain why I wanted to go there. Would it be advantageous or risky to mention that I was waitlisted last cycle and, because this is my top choice, worked harder to improve?
