Same. However, at the top it still says it's being processed. Is it the same with you? Also, is your requirements list empty? Mine is.


Yes, and yes.

Hoping Monday is the big day. GL to you.

Harvard admits: CONGRATS! That is such amazing news!!!!! You would be crazy not to go... unless you prefer S or Y... If you have never been to the Harvard campus before it is spectacular!! With that said, some of us over here (me) are literally praying/ hoping every 10 minutes to be accepted to a NY school... I need to get back to NYC for urgent family reasons -- if you are no longer interested in CLS or NYU please, please withdraw your apps because you will obviously be accepted and take up a seat. If I personally had a decision that wasn't based on family needs, I would go with Harvard Law over any other school in the country. Bottom line - it's HARVARD! Congrats, that is such a huge accomplishment!!!! :)

So congrats again and please withdraw from any schools you are no longer interested in -- I think NYU/ Columbia will be making decisions this coming week.

Best of luck to everyone in here.

Not to be super pessimistic or anything, but when do they start sending out dings?

Can't decide whether I'm annoyed that no one has reported calls happening today, or relieved that I'm not being passed over when calls are going out.

Ditto.

It seems like there were about 10-15 offers last week?

Not sure where you're getting that # from, unless you're assuming that the TLS sample is about 1/3 of total applicants. I only saw 4-5 on here.

I'm inclined to think that the TLS population makes up a large % of transfers to top schools, mostly because I wouldn't have been as willing to navigate the process without the help of TLS. But, maybe others are more independent and ambitious than I am.

I think this is probably true. That said, there may be a lot of lurkers who aren't posting. If you are such a lurker, please come out and play!

I heard of a couple T14 kids accepted into Harvard last Friday who didn't post on here. One from Northwestern, forget the other one. I'm sure there's a decent chunk of them out there.

From the standpoint of a purely rational self-interested actor, it makes sense to lurk.

But screw that.

Also, screw T14 kids applying to transfer to H. Either take a shot at Y or take your T14 top of the class trophy and go home.

I'll come out and play. Top 1% at a T35, two years good work experience. Fully expecting a ding, but I'm Application Ready for Review as of July 6. No emails or calls. Told myself I wouldn't get emotionally vested, but it's too late.

Expecting a ding just to play the expectations game? Sounds like you have a better shot than many of us...

See, people? Look at this courage. That's all it takes.

And good luck to you, sir/ma'am.

The problem is that virtually everyone in this thread seems to have a good shot, based on what I've seen. That's why I think people see no rhyme or reason to the order of the acceptances.
