Alumni Admissions Interview Program
We launched the Alumni Admissions Interview Program eleven years ago in an attempt to further personalize the admissions process at Georgetown Law, where we receive more applications than any other law school. By enlisting the support of our alumni in meeting with promising candidates from wherever they apply, we hoped both to impress upon candidates the promise of joining our legal community, and to gain valuable input that helps us to identify, recruit, and continue to enroll the best possible law students each year. In the first year of the program, we recruited 215 alumni to interview 435 applicants. In the last few years, the program has averaged over 700 alumni volunteers conducting 1,000 interviews annually. During the 2016-2017 admissions cycle, alumni conducted interviews of applicants in 46 states, D.C. and 23 foreign countries. The information gathered through each alumni interview has been incredibly helpful to the our evaluation and enrollment of thousands of terrifically talented law students.
