UR since 11/19 and no JR1...will give it until Christmas and figure it's a lost cause.

I've been UR since 10/13 and I still have hope for a JR1. I may be crazy for having it, but I have it nonetheless.

And I'm gonna say that you're a lock, so people, have faith - your JR1s will come :)

Typically, yes.

And also, it does look like some people got JR1 emails yesterday.

Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn!

And I'm not sure this is the case.

This school should really start dinging people so I see if I am in the first batch or not. This stress is unhealthy.

Hey guys--

Wondering if this rather odd situation has happened to anyone else. I submitted end of October, went under review Nov 2nd. Then, went complete Nov 10th- both via email and on status checker. Since then, I haven't checked back-- I haven't received a JR1 and since I'm a pretty borderline candidate (reverse-splitter by Harvard standards). I just assumed I'd been dinged or WLed. I just checked back tonight out of resigned curiosity and my status checker now reads Under Review 11/2 again.

Any thoughts?

I never went complete via status checker, only by email. I believe everyone else had the same thing as me. Perhaps it was a mistake on their part which they later fixed?

I have a rather stupid question. Obviously, there are numbers that no matter who you are, you can't get into HYS. Where is the cut-off?? At what point numerically are you wasting your money?

Wondering if I should have taken a trip with my almost $300. ...sigh... probably

Law school numbers.com is actually really helpful for this! You can see what the lowest gpa/lsat were that got accepted last cycle. It always gives me hope!

from last cycle, i think 3.7 was the soft floor; 3.6 was the hard floor

short of being a diamond in the rough or URM, sub-3.6's didnt get straight INs regardless of the LSAT score. 3.7's + high LSAT were rare, but 3.6 or lower is where i personally would no longer have a 'what if' thought in my head...short of 3.6 and 180, where my chances would still be pretty bad but maybe worth an app lol.

I was Under Review since 11/16 but got an email of completion on 11/24.
Regardless, my status has not at all changed and I never got JR's so... does this mean I'm pretty hopeless for Harvard? :(

I don't think it would take them this long to send out a JR to me if they like me.. no? ahhhhh

no
Yale accepted a 3.38 last year
3.6 is certainly not Harvard's floor
especially for URMs or non-traditionals or both +high LSAT.... this may sound biased, but the Yale information is legitimate, and, as such, I believe it follows that you're mistaken.

They already accepted a 165, 3.5 URM this year...
