Congrats everyone on their acceptances. I transferred to HLS last year and am happy about my decision. Feel free to send me a message or whatever if you have questions or anything.

Can you tell us about your experience there? How competitive it feels, how OCI was, class-sizes, etc.

Seems like it was an evaluation day following a more "auto-in admittance" day

OCI was great for everyone that transferred. Everyone who wanted a big firm got one, and most people had their pick of many.

It can feel competitive if that's what you're into, or it can feel laid-back. It's a big school and it really is what you make of it.

And I've been in classes with like 80 people, and classes with 12.

has anyone been dinged yet? I don't have a shot of getting in, but I'm holding out hope that I'm a special enough snowflake (hint: I'm not).

I can think of a few people from T2s. Not sure what their rankings were or anything. Most people seemed to be in the T10-T25 range.

Are you trying to clerk? If so, how successful have you been establishing relationships with influential professors?

Were you able to find out how much financial aid you'd be receiving before you were required to commit?

I wonder if we'll just have to wait until Friday for another round? Seems to be the only day we get any movement (whether on the status checker or a phone call).

Yes. I personally will be reloading "View your posts" constantly, with my heart skipping a beat each time the Harvard 2012 thread has a new post.
