I have a feeling I'm going to be an anomaly on TLS. In at HLS, no word from SLS or CLS yet...(probably reject/waitlist).

EDIT: Also looked at LSN data from last 2 cycles. VERY high numbers and URMs got in off the waitlist...

Would ppl here really wait until September to get in, though? I feel like if I'm not fortunate enough to get in after the deposit deadline it just becomes a crapshoot I don't feel like playing

Not quite as anomalous as you might think. I'm in the same boat.

Seriously? YAY! Where have you been all my cycle?? I feel like everyone who's gotten into HLS has also gotten into CLS. Been feeling mighty unloved...

I'm in at Harvard but still haven't heard from Stanford (went complete in late Feb due to issues with the dean's cert).

Best of luck on getting into one of the top 3! if it makes you feel any better, I'm going to ask Yale to drop me from consideration...so the WL is already getting smaller!

I hope only URMs get in from the waitlists this cycle. We need more minorities in power to represent the changing face of America in particular Hispanics.

Dang. Sounds like Wed/Thurs were admit days, today is WL day. I have gotten nothing yet. Sounds like I have to wait til tomorrow for the final reject day. I wish they would have rejected me sooner, this process has been excruciating.

Waitlisted today. No word from Stanford. Held at Harvard a while back.

Some people have congratulated me more enthusiastically about this than other acceptances. Weird.

Out! Actually relieved about the quick turnaround. I went complete nearly 5 months after I did so at Stanford and I still haven't heard from the latter yet!

I'm out as well! First rejection of my cycle, and it had to come from New Haven. Good-luck to all of those still in the game.

I actually kind of had a rough cycle. I applied to twelve schools, and got in at only four, even though the law school predictors had me at above an 95% chance at everything but top 3, and above 60% at the top 3.

Mines hasn't been this bad, but it feels close.
