Formal Dress

Casual is fine.

These people are being silly. Too many hours in the basement playing with twenty sided dice :) There's no formal dress code. People tended to look put together at the March ASW--there were generally no ripped jeans and ratty t-shirts. On the formal end, people dressed business casual (i.e. skirt and blouse, or slacks and vests over button ups). On the casual side, nice jeans and a good shirt. I'd say go however makes you feel comfortable. I went with good jeans, a blouse and dress boots.

Hey April ASW friends, have you gotten any emails or info at all about ASW? I thought we were supposed to get mock cases and such prior, but I haven't heard anything since the confirmation email.

I received a followup email with the mock class case this morning around 10:30 EDT.

I dunno if this is a weird question or anything (and I don't really want to email JS about it) but are we able to use the gyms during the ASW?

Probably not. You need to show an id or give a HUID number to get in. I don't remember them having a pass or anything last year.

Hey guys, anyone looking for a roommate? I'm hoping to get a two or three bedroom (probably through Harvard-owned off-campus housing because it sounds easier) where everyone can pay like $900-$1300 a month or something. Hopefully a few incoming 1L's so we won't have to worry about figuring out housing arrangements again every year, but if any current 1L's or 2L's have a place and are looking for someone to jump in to fill a vacancy feel free to message me.

21 year-old male from L.A. who likes sports, fairly progressive politics, and rock & roll. (This feels like Match.com)

Anyways, message me if you're looking for anyone!

Got my financial aid package! It's incredibly generous, much more than I thought I'd get. I'm so thrilled, and it means I'll almost certainly be at Cambridge in the fall.

This same thing happened to me last year, I highly recommend you email them to make sure they have you down (they didn't have me down until I emailed them - despite getting that "Thanks for registering!" email)

Sent in my response form earlier today, will definitely be at H in the fall. Excited and terrified.

Anyone else made the leap?
Also, anyone have thoughts on ASW this weekend? I skipped a lot so would love to hear if there was anything earth shattering/hilarious I missed.

I got a confirmation email from the admissions office. I think calling if you're concerned is fine.

It seems like you truly can get meaningfully involved in anything you can dream up, whether an HLS organization already exists or not, and the faculty will support you. That's why I chose to go, ultimately.


+1. I came out of ASW with the impression that basically every opportunity I could want exists at HLS and it's just a matter of figuring out which ones I want to take advantage of, which is awesome. I talked to lots of current students and they all seemed surprisingly chill and honest about both the good and bad parts. And so many are doing insanely cool things, especially the PI people. OPIA also seems to genuinely be the best, too. Overall, I left very excited and a lot more sure of my decision than I was going in.

Yeah I definitely came away feeling a lot better about not gunning for firm law, and pursuing PI with LIPP and the immense network of people and physical options HLS provides to support me.
