They haven't gotten to you yet? I think the holds/dings will continue for a while. I guess since Dec. score is out, they are holding all the leftovers from earlier to compare to the new apps soon to come in.


Also I think I read somewhere on their website that they try to give decisions 2-3 mos after your file is complete, so this may be their attempt to stick to that goal for those of us complete in Oct.

Sigh. Under review since 10/6, no response yet. Just tell me already!

Yeah, my review date changed to 1/8. I thought last year it actually said "held' on the status checker, but I could be wrong.

Held. Status checker updates for the first time from 10/Twenty-something to 1/10. I guess it's not over yet. Time to send that updated transcript.

For all of my "held" friends, feel free to join us in the Held at Harvard Law 2011 thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=143852

If nothing else we can create a great resource for people in the cycle next year.

Well, I guess I got my wish, sort of. Held just about 10 minutes ago. Status checker also updated to 1/10 after 10/25.

Held here too. I'm a URM with non-Harvard numbers, so I was probably held so they can look through the Dec. LSAT to see if there are enough URMs with better numbers than mine. I think we should all take this as a personal victory since we weren't auto-dinged.

I wonder if this is being done alphabetically. Anyone get held with a last name starting with around "S"?

By date, obviously. No November URs like me yet.

EDIT: Kinda comes across as if I know I am going to be held, suffice to say, that is not the case.

I have a feeling our cycle are going to be pretty similar. I wish I had applied to Berkeley, too...now I am sure it is way too late for them. Damn, my being cheap about application fees!

Do people usually write LOCI's for held applications? What would you say in such a LOCI? "Harvard seems like a good fit for me..."? lol

I think you might be looking at a JR1 if you survive this wave.

Just held, status changed to UR 1/10. I originally went UR 11/3, and I'm non-URM with a un-Harvardian GPA, so... I'm flabbergasted. I was expecting the auto-ding.
