I believe Georgetown is a big feeder for Deloitte's Federal Consulting department. Makes sense given the location. Lucrative field too and very cool if you're interested in the public sector (unfortunately I'm not haha).


Me either. Thats why I'd like a little more information. Some of the firms and companies in the employment report are so large that the roles might be different than what grads from other schools might be in. I know a few MSB grads go into IB (lets say Citi). Will these MSB folks working at Citi IBD have the same roles/positions/projects/responsibilities as the Sloan, Darden, and Yale guys?

MSB or McCombs:

**really looking forward to any current students responses**

My goal is to land a top consulting or i-banking job. I know they are two different paths, but my goal is to see a lot of companies post-graduation. I think I-banking is more that route - but I am an attorney, so I think consulting firms might be attracted to that. I know that here in Texas - that one or two years of consulting or i-banking in NYC opens up every job in the world in Texas finance. thoughts?

georgetown ranked #25 in the new US News report. i think they were 24 last year, so looks like they dropped a spot.

Does anyone know if calls start going out early or only on decision date (Friday)?

I did my interview with the Director of Admissions (P/T) and he told me all notifications go out on the 15th, no exceptions.

Looking back the last few years it seems all calls are on the day of decisions release.

Is the idea that admits get calls and dings/WLs get emails?

Is this how they have done it in the past? Seems like a lot of work to call hundreds of admitted students all in one day. I was hoping to get an email notification bc I won't be able to answer my phone during the day, but if what you say is true, maybe I don't want to check my email.

Bases on earlier posts, it seems people started receiving answers from admissions at around noon.

I've noticed many schools send out decisions on Friday afternoons... perhaps it's so that they can send out the decision and go in hiding for the weekend from the inevitable phone calls from both admitted and rejected applicants? :lol:

Just got the call- in!! :-D

No mention of any scholarship, but it looks like those who received funds in Round 1 this year had that info in the letter once it was posted online. It was a quick call- so I expect they are hoping to roll through a lot this morning. Best of luck to everyone else!


Forgot to include; DC based.

Thank you! I did my best to make the call as quick as possible. After being a fly on the wall in some other threads where people were getting super anxious, I didn't want to tie up any more of their time than needed.

Also, there will be an admit weekend 4/5-4/6, more info to be included in later correspondence.
