Just to include some additional data. 4.1 and #2 at a school between 90-100.
Still no call, but I sent my stuff in pretty late, so this is what I expected.

Did anyone have issues getting their undergrad and law school certifications out? My schools took a while getting them to HLS and I'm worried that affected my chances. My application didn't become complete until about two weeks ago.

Has anyone’s status checker updated yet? Or have any of you received the informational email?

Still nothing here. The woman I spoke to on the phone said to be expecting a ton of emails starting this evening so I've been refreshing my email like crazy but still nothing.

So, no call is pretty much a sure reject at this point, right?

Was wondering if maybe some accepts have decided to go elsewhere...

I think that when S/Y decisions come out there will be a little bit of movement (depending on how many H accepted today and how many of those people bail on H for S/Y compared to how many H wants in their transfer class).

HLS doesn't waitlist for transfers right?

Actually, H takes in more transfers than the class size for this very reason; it seems that over the past few years there have never been a single extra call outside of the batch of calls. Sad, but I think it's better that we move on..

My application went complete earlier today and I was accepted. They were missing my undergrad cert (sent last Friday).

Somebody in this thread mentioned earlier that they were accepted via status checker. If we can't see anything on the status checker and haven't gotten an email, that's probably a ding, right? I'd honestly rather just know now if I'm getting dinged so I can move on. The waiting is killing me.

They said: "Congrats to those who got calls! For those who didn’t, it’s also possible to get in and not get a call, you might get notified via email/status checker (ex. me last year). Good luck to everyone!"

So I don't think that it's conclusive but still probably unlikely

Has anyone tried reaching out to law review or heard anything about when we should hear from them as well? I know it's unlikely I made it on but just want to confirm since they require you to be there early.

Law review results typically go out (for everyone, not just transfers) later in July. I think end of this week/beginning of next would be typical but you should search the HLS students thread to confirm timing. But this is definitely too early.
