Looking at this year's Law School Numbers
for HLS, it looks like only 1 non-URM has been accepted with below a 173... anyone else out there get a JR2 with under a 173??
I noticed that as well. Certain makes me feel bad and really hopeful at the same time. Since they accept plenty of greens in last year's graph between 170-172/3.9+, I think they just have not gotten to that pool of borderline applicants yet.
That certainly gives me some lingering hope! Any idea when those borderline candidates might hear back?
I am going to dig through the 200 pages of last year's thread again tonight. I will report when I find out. Go read it if you have time
I was active during the later half so I don't remember the earlier acceptances.
So for us borderline applicants / reverse splitters (for Harvard, that is!) -
Glancing quickly at LSN from last year of applicants with 170-171 and above a 3.9:
17 Waitlisted (2 later accepted)
Of those who were accepted:
November - 5 (11/23)
December - 4
January - 3
February - 2
March - 2
1 did not report a decision date. Those accepted in November all applied in early October/September. Those getting in December were more likely later November applications.
Most of the waitlists came in April, probably after bring held sometime in January/February.
Most of the rejections came in January, others in April after what I again assume was a hold.
Here are the applicants I was looking at.http://harvard.lawschoolnumbers.com/app ... ,8&type=jd
I'm not holding my breath.
