I think, since we're just hearing about people on the east coast receiving them yesterday and today, that genuine worry is a little excessive. I would wait a while before asking.

Edit: Just realized your post was from yesterday like 3 hours after someone reported getting it haha, so yea, I wouldn't worry yet


That's true. I guess I'm worried because I was admitted in the January wave, and I thought the people receiving theirs were from the February wave.

ETA: I guess I'll just do my best to learn and be patient. Haha. Thanks for the reassurance! :)

Definitely looking forward to the book! I think that is a great touch. When were you lucky book recipients accepted?

Anybody else waiting longer than 2 business days for financial aid documentation to be listed as "Received"? About half of my documents are "Received" and half are "Not Yet Received."

Signed book sounds awesome! I assume it came separate from the acceptance package?

Does anyone have a sense of whether I'll qualify for much grant aid in my final year given that my parents are sorta upper middle class and thus in that irritating bracket of people-who-on-paper-can-afford-my-tuition-but-in-reality-would-really-rather-not.


This is my biggest fear. My parents are solidly middle class but have four younger kids to get through undergrad and they won't be contributing a single penny towards my law education. I'm K-JD so I don't have much in the bank. I think $200K debt would be too much for me, and after my original JS2 elation I'm starting to feel the Harvard dream beginning to slip away.. :(

EDIT: Of course, I'm going to ride this one all the way to the end in the hopes that they give me something!

Are any of your siblings currently in undergrad? If they are, the amount of their tuitions will be struck off from your parents' available income for financial aid calculations so it becomes much easier for you to get aid.


The Parent form asked for the name of the school and program for your sibling(s), but it never asked for the tuition amount or the amount of financial aid they're receiving. Is this something they find out on their own or is there another form where we provide this information?

yeah, i like this book deal.
i assume everyone gets something different, or relevant to their interests. one of my interests came up during my h interview and we spoke briefly about a handful of professors. my book is from one of those profs.

Book came today (Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court)! The note from JS and Laurence Tribe were a nice touch. Accepted 1/20.

The book is different depending on interests expressed. I think they are all written by HLS profs though?

Has anyone submitted all of their documents for HLS financial aid yet? I went through this weekend, completed all my forms, and uploaded all my parental documents. But when I logged on tonight to make sure that everything was received correctly, the documents tab has disappeared from the HLS FA site. Happened to anyone else?

Strange, I submitted all of mine around the same time period, and I still have the Documents tab and everything else shows as Received. If it doesn't show up again today, maybe give them a call?

Just had my packet arrive in Eastern Canada! Although I feel like I'm the only Canadian on TLS sometimes so maybe that's not helpful for anyone. Admitted 2/2
