Being a megapoaster is a necessary but not sufficient condition for being cool on tls. HTH. :lol:

Exactly!!! But maybe also because most of my families and friends are foreigners, and apparently H has a better reputation overseas(at least in Asia).

H is definitely more reputable internationally.

Just got my HLS email account.

I have to say that I think this is a really smart move. #LossAversion #EndowmentEffect

This is like when you get a Google internship, you get an @google.com email address, and you can look down on the prole @gmail.com people.

An admitted student from Korea casually mentioned to me during ASW that her parents had threatened to disown her if she chose any law school but Harvard. Crazy.

That's probably because HLS are much, much, much sexier than YLS students. #science

Don't worry Ren, you can join me in the Dregs of TLS group if they expel you from the elite one.

To answer everyone's "can you appeal" question, the financial aid decisions that we're given now are strictly preliminary, before school starts, you can ask them to reevaluate you based on your current financial situation.

Yay! Got the Harvard email today!! Immediately set the background to the custom red one in the OP. That default made me cringe...

Unrelated news: I've strangely gotten back in touch with 30 of my old friends/ex-girlfriends all in one day. I would like to thank harvard.edu technology for making this possible. :P

My friend got a phone call with Noah Feldman (one of those "let me tell you why Harvard" calls) because they have common interests. SO INSANELY JEALOUS

Is there a reason TLS loves him? No pic :/

My preliminary favorite (without meeting any of them) is Guhan Subramanian.

Have you seen him?? He is dreamy. He also has perfect hair.

I may have gushed loudly about how dreamy he is, not knowing that he was right behind me, at the faculty reception at the ASW. oops.

During my JS1, I may or may not have said something along the lines of "Yeah, and I'm very keen to have the opportunity to work with Noah Feldman, even though his academic interests lie outside of my own," and then we may or may not have spent a good 5 seconds like this
