I have a very similar background. Did you interview because it was required or use it as an additional resource? Would you suggest an interview for future applicants?

Good for you on your results and congrats on accepting at Georgetown, though I'm upset that you're going to take away a spot for me since I'm on the preferred waitlist ;-)

What was the source for your Georgetown $$$? Merit scholarship, need based financial aid, public service fellowship, a combination? It's an impressive amount!
