Looking at the stats on LSN, I feel like they're just playing with your head. Looking at Harvard's 25-75 ranges I'm a major splitter (175 LSAT, 3.6 GPA). I keep on toying with the idea of applying but honestly don't know if it's worth the effort/money.


Worst case scenario is you're out 100 bucks. But at least you don't have to deal with asking yourself "what if."


Yea, I just applied.

More info for everyone: I also got a JR1 invite for Monday. I was part of the big group that got held, and I haven't sent in new materials or anything; I'd actually resigned myself to my fate. Numbers are uninspiring, PM me for them, so there's more hope for everyone who got held (and everyone with shitty numbers).

So I just realized that my complete email has a status checker link, but no user name or password. Has anyone else had this and is there any reason to check the status check? I'm pretty much assured an auto-ding so I'm not all that fussed, but it is a little odd.

I went complete first week of November, I had a lower first score that's held me back some as I've been WLed from Chicago and Penn, but I'm in at Duke and Georgetown

I went complete in early December, and haven't heard anything either, not even a hold.

Still sitting pretty at UR 11/30. But given my #s, I'm not exactly getting my hopes up.

I think there should be a system similar to what rating agencies use for rating countries' economies for people that received no news at all, like me:

Application Under Review

Outlook: Positive / Negative

I have currently no idea what they think about me, maybe they took my application form out and atm using it as dart board.

I think we're in the same pile. Probably along with eaa, arkansawyer, and others.

You sent the LOCI after you got the hold today? Did you already have it written or did you write it today?

Make a new thread for us to wildly speculate in? Entitle it "I Haven't Heard Shit from Harvard 2011"
