The stats show only 5 people are matriculating. What are the others upto. Guys make up your mind. For some of us who are waitlisted this school is the only hope.


I was expecting to hear from Kelley to make my decision. Good luck for those on the WL, one more place will be free today... McDonough is a great school, that sure was a tough decision.


Have you conveyed this to the Georgetown Ad com. It would be of great help to people who are on the WL at the moment



Did that on Wednesday.

I checked with the admissions office today. They say they will choose from the waitlisted candidates if seats are vacant. The time frame is throughout summer. So basically, if you have an admit from some other school go for it, if you are only banking on McDonough, then wait. What a conundrum. I have an admit from Hult, and I am unsure what to do now. Hult is cheaper, faster and besides, McDonough is not among the top 20 either. Also, it is a hell lot expensive. Hult is already asking for the 1st installment of tuition. Any suggestions?

Made my decision - will matriculate at McDonough for the class of 2015. Looking forward to meet everyone in August.

For folks that have already matriculated, did you just order an official transcript from your undergrad (my undergrad univ is in US) and requested the school to send it to GTown directly? Is that what they mean by "official academic documents"?

Congrats on the decision. Yes, just have your undergrad office send the transcript directly.

IS there a way to find out how many people are on the waitlist and how many are actually matriculating?

The waitlist isn't ranked, so I don't think the number of people on the waitlist is relevant. From what I gather, the exercise of picking people from the waitlist is influenced by various factors. What could influence the probability of a positive outcome for you is the number of people on the waitlist whose work experience and stats/demographics are very similar to yours.

I don't think the number of people matriculating will be officially published until after term starts. I think the deposit deadline for R3 was June 1. If so, it's probably safe to assume that most of the class is filled up by now and there'll only be a handful of additional acceptances between now and August.

Sure it is. Now that I think about it here's my take. Gtown isn't an Ivy League to warrant an invest of 75k per year, not to mention the foregone salary of let's say 80k per year. Is it really worth it? Do people make atleast 130k after graduating from this school? What's your opinion?
