Georgetown lets us down gently, tells us to get on waitlist an hour ago
Georgetown just sent out their dream-crushing e-mail to lottery losers:
Thank you for registering for the lottery to attend President Obama’s speech in Gaston Hall on Tuesday, April 14. Unfortunately your name was not selected for a ticket to attended in person. A limited number of wait-list tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis at 9pm night on the first floor of Healy Hall. Individuals will need to present a valid GO Card to be placed on the wait list.
Nice of them to give us a heads up on the 9pm wait list… in an email that was sent out at 9:49.
So, what’s an Obama-reject to do Tuesday morning? According to the email, the event will be broadcast on channel 3 at viewing spaces around campus, such as Sellinger and Lauinger. Or, you can watch a live webcast of it at georgetown.edu/obamawebcast.html.
