Apply Early Decision
The Early Decision process is designed for applicants who are certain that Georgetown Law is their first choice. This process allows those applicants a way to demonstrate their commitment to attend Georgetown, if admitted. Early Decision applicants are given priority review in our rolling admissions process.
If your Early Decision application is complete by March 1, your decision will be e-mailed within approximately four weeks of your completion date, whenever possible. You are welcome to apply Early Decision after March 1, and your decision will be expedited, though the typical timeline may vary.
Please note that the Early Decision process is binding and candidates applying Early Decision to Georgetown may not submit a binding application to any other law school. Although candidates admitted under Early Decision are committed to attending Georgetown, and will not receive their financial aid information before their admissions decision, please be assured that you will be considered for merit scholarships and need-based financial aid in the same manner, and on the same timeline, as all other admitted students.
If your application is deferred or you are added to the waitlist, you are no longer bound by your Early Decision commitment and we encourage you to proceed with applications at other law schools.
