165/3.8 URM, held a couple days ago. I already sent my LOCI and updated resume through snail mail, and additional rec letter through LSDAS.

what if i have absolutely nothing new to report? (already graduated UG so no new grades, am not going to take the LSAT again/ put myself through hell again, still working the same job as i was when i applied and as i will be till summer...)

is harvard too good/apathetic for a "PLZPLZ JUST LET ME IN I LIKE U DO U LIKE ME" LOCI?

hey - joining the fun. held 1/11.

i'm out of school, so i don't really have much updating to do either, except to be like 'hey, i'm still here.'

edit: if i've recently done something pretty cool at my job (organised an event), what if i sent them an LOCI containing info about it / an agenda of the event?

I, too, am held. But I actually was thinking of having a flat out rejection so I'm pretty darn happy.

I like it. Might just print and send that one, after photoshopping "Harvard" instead of "Libya" (like the country? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be okay if my parents named me that...)

And seal the envelope with a kiss.

Any guidelines for LOCIs? :shock:

I thought schools don't want you to "bother" them and a LOCI seems to be stating the obvious (to Harvard at least, maybe not to T3)

This could be a long.... drawn.... out....wait....

Its depressing there seems to be only hold/reject at this point, for people still awaiting a JR1.

I called HLS today to ask about file updates. For anyone interested:

- Have your recommender send a new LOR directly to HLS via mail, and they'll match it with your file.

- New resumes/LOCI should be sent by regular mail, and MUST include your signature on the bottom in order for your file to be updated.

Hope that helps, folks.

Anyone know if sending it by LSDAS will result in HLS not matching it to your file at this point?
Also, because my recommender is sending it, it won't have my signature - anyone know if this is still acceptable?

Joining the club. Stats in profile, no JR1. Better than a waitlist/rejection, right? But I'm not sure I can handle being in limbo too long. I'm already obsessive about my phone/email enough, now they have to throw this uncertainty at me. Sending an updated transcript and an additional LOR soon.

I think you can sign the LSDAS LOR cover letter, right? That's probably what they mean.
