stats for Harvard

Postby bermudask8er7 » Sat Jan 15, 2011 12:37 am

I've heard people on the board say that Harvard has a very number-based admissions process, and many have used the phrase "auto-admit." What combination of LSAT and GPA would be considered as "auto-admit"? i.e. 176+ and 3.9+?

You probably hit the nail right on the head, although some "auto-admits" have been held before. I think the only way you get really boned with good numbers at Harvard is if it seems you didn't do anything else and are straight ouf undergrad.

Eh, nothing is for certain. Some ppl this cycle with strong numbers (176+/3.9+) were held, and I don't recall their softs being abysmal either. It's more numbers-based than Y & S, but it's still holistic compared to the rest of them.
