Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect. All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Unless otherwise notified, classes will begin at their normal time. Instructional Continuity is in effect for the faculty members that wish to exercise it.
How Files Are Evaluated
The Admissions Committee takes into consideration a number of factors in evaluating whether a candidate would be suitable for admission. These factors include whether the person is likely to succeed at Georgetown, would benefit from a legal education here, and could contribute to the Georgetown legal community.
In making such determinations, the Committee focuses on a number of criteria and does not use numerical cut-offs. In addition to examining the applicant's LSAT score(s) and academic record, the Committee also considers the personal statement, letters of recommendations/evaluations, choice of major, nature and difficulty of course selection, extracurricular activities, graduate work, contributions to the community and professional experience.
In addition to evaluating the application requirements, the Admissions Committee may also consider feedback from an applicant's invitational alumni interview or invitational group interview in determining whether a candidate would be suitable for admission.
