Honestly... getting into HLS has been a huge dream of mine for some time (ever since I was a kid?)
And I worked my butt off to get the GPA and the right LSAT score.

but after getting in, I feel emptier than ever before. It's like.... now what? What am I supposed to do?
I mean... yeah parents are happy and friends congratulate me... and it feels great...
but the excitement fades away pretty quickly and I'm left to wonder... now what?

Study hard to get into the Law Review? Fancy SA position at a fancy firm? Then what? Will it make me happy?

I feel extremely honored and humbled at the opportunity to attend such a fine institution as HLS but...
I feel like I'm at a total loss as to what to do next...


find out what you wanna do, there are some pretty hard dreams to accomplish even as a HLS graduate: getting clerkship in Supreme Court or prestigious federal courts (of course Law Review will help you hard on this), if not, look for the things you are interested in, the ending is always another beginning.

It is what you can do with your HLS JD degree rather than your HLS JD degree itself that matters.

---from a 0L student who did not get into HLS this year and dreaming hard to get in next year through transfer


haha totally feel you on that - try looking around HLS' site to get a sense of what they have to offer and just soak it in - it'll be a great 3 years. You can PM me - I'm going this year and have similar thoughts :)

Very cool! 8) May I ask how you applied for deferral?

The Admissions FAQ says "Admitted applicants will receive more detailed information about the procedures for applying for a deferral" but um... (stupid me) I've yet to locate this info anywhere...

If anyone else can perhaps share the link to applying for deferral, I'd be very grateful :D

I don't have the link, but as I recall it was an option to select at the time of accepting admission - instead of choosing the option to select and enter in the fall of 2016 (for me), there was an option to say I intend to defer and will submit a deferral application letter. If you already accepted for this fall, and you don't see a link to defer, I'd call admissions to see if you can still apply for one (I seem to recall there being a deadline, but it might be a soft one).

Second on this. Waiting for Yale and Ruby personally -- that's not to say I'll take either over Harvard, but if I get either, I'll definitely consider it.



What's Ruby?

By the way, I have a ton of friends in the section also looking to sell Crim (Kadish 10th Ed). Some have shrink wrapped copies, others with minimal highlighting or writing.
