Assholes.


What jerks. And their rejection letter is so friendly to begin with. Thanks for letting me know that your process is perfect and only selects the very best, and that I was clearly not one of them. At least Y and S were nice and said some generic thing about having a lot of qualified applicants and limited number of spots.


+1 haha yes. I couldnt believe they said that either! (I got dinged last week)


I really liked Stanford's rejection. It said something about being reassured that most of their applicants are qualified enough to be attending top law schools elsewhere.

Heh, luckily I'll have two rejections to frame next to my acceptance when I transfer*.




*Not that I intend to transfer, it is understood there is a 99% chance this won't happen. This statement solely constitutes sarcasm thinly veiling a hope that I do perform well enough to transfer.

1) How many people are still left that haven't heard anything, i.e no hold or WL?
2) This is probably bad news, right?

I can confirm for the curious that they do indeed accept e-mail withdrawals once you are waitlisted.

Thank you for informing us of your decision to withdraw your application to Harvard Law School. According to your instructions, we have removed your application from further consideration.



We appreciate your courtesy, and offer our best wishes for your plans.



Sincerely,

Andrea DePaoli

UR 3/9, no waitlist, no rejection, no JR1. Predicting I will get a JR1+JR2 call right after the blizzard in Hades.

Why withdrawing? Are you reapplying next cycle? (If you don't mind my asking...)

Haha, I may be optimistic, but I am still realistic.

I don't think you would care about the deposit if you get a JR1/2 so the point is moot. :wink:

r6, you look different :D ! And let me be the millionth person to tell you your child is adorable.

ETA: I hope to hear about some JR1s/JR2s around here soon. Good luck to everyone!
