Each committee consists of admissions officers (who know about the individual high schools and have a broad view of the process), faculty, deans, and students--so all members of the university community are involved. Academics (course selection, grades, class rank, standardized tests (SAT/ACT, Achievement Tests, AP Exams) and Personal Attributes (essays, recommendations, extracurricular activities, work, travel, interview) are RATED EQUALLY in the process, so it is not uncommon to have valedictorians and people with high SATs to be denied when others from the same high schools with slightly lower academic credentials but stronger personal attributes admitted. Georgetown is filled with people who LOVE the school and has an extremely low attrition rate--the admissions committees do a good job determining who would benefit most from Georgetown and vice-versa--so expressing your enthusiasm for attending the school is a big help (through your application, essays, interview, recommendations).
