Song of Ice and Fire is pretty good, and I hear it's a lot like 1L.

Speaking of GOT, I hear that HLS students have free access to HBO-GO. So I guess I'm going to HLS!

But, yeah, seems like it really is HLS for me!

A friend who is a 2L just posted this to FB. And it apparently works even if your off-campus.

Guess my 1L year is already in some serious trouble...

1. Go to HBO GO.
2. Click "Sign Up"
3. When it asks who your provider is, click the "More" bar
4. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list and click "Harvard University (Beta)"
5. It will validate your status as a student by having you login to the Harvard PIN system.

Anybody else get an email just now saying they can select rooms after noon today? I'm sure it's a mistake, I've read several times incoming students can't select until the windows open May 1. Just wondering if they made the mistake with everyone

I haven't heard from anyone one way or the other. If you have a HUID, give it a try.

Didn't work. Got the following error:

"Uh oh!

You are not authorized.

Unfortunately, you are not authorized to use HBO and/or HBO GO. Due to contractual restrictions, it is only available to Harvard undergraduate students living on campus.

It is not available to: graduate students, HBS students, proctors, and resident tutors.

You can check your Harvard registration status. If you believe your registration status is inaccurate, please contact the Harvard Registrar."

It wasn't exactly a mistake, just a lack of sorting their listservs properly. If you read the subject line, you'll see that the entire email only applies to returning students. For whatever reason, they included us admitted students in the mass-mailing as well. I had a brief heart attack this morning too after receiving that :D

I guess that's to be expected. It works for current HLS and HKS students. You'll have that to look forward to if you matriculate.

Slowly withdrawing from other schools is simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying. Just withdrew from UVA and only have 4 left to choose from, including H. Such a weird feeling.

Haha same, only have 4 left here too. Scary (and a relief) that in 2 weeks this will probably be down to 1

Do you get notified of your FinAid offer by email or do they USPS it?

Now that you're admitted, everything will be via email. Ev-ry-thing.

So many emails.

Hi everyone,
I have this same question:
So... I might be being totally slow here but where do I find the "Admissions Response Form" that I need to submit by May 1st?

Also, how long has it taken you guys to get into the FB group? I requested to join a day ago, but haven't been accepted yet.

The form can be found here: (requires login info)https://law.harvard.edu/prospective/jd/secure/admitted/responseform.html#610:449:_Hc56or3dEeO8mcOCpqbqNA

It took a week for me to be added to the fb group. I think they do it in waves during the work week.

Alright, I've read this thread on and off, and I'm sure a similar question is not too far behind, but I'm a special snowflake and want to ask again.
I'm coming in with a wifey and two kiddos, probably three before too long (They keep showing up on the doorstep). I've got about 3k a month to spend on housing and utilities. Other than HUH, which we are certainly considering, what are some good options? I hate traffic and we would love some yard if possible. I realize those two things work against each other, so I know there's some compromise required somewhere. We probably need at least three bedrooms.

Anybody else been doing similar searches? Have any luck? Parent high-five?
