Hopefully this is a pointless and silly question. For those of us still in undergrad (or in graduate programs, I suppose), how severe do you think the post-acceptance GPA drop-off would have to be in order to merit a reconsideration from JR? I'm not expecting like Cs this semester, but would a handful of Bs or B+s have any effect?

(I realize this is all speculative, as none of us work in the HLS Admissions Office. Just looking for some input.)

P.S. Congrats & welcome to this week's batch of JR2s!

prob not much if it isnt some ridiculous drop

also, they would definitely care a lot less if it is a graduate program GPA (to the point of not caring lol)

So is there any system for determining which ASW we attend? Or is it just personal preference?

A silly, irrational part of me has this suspicion that one of the weekends is secretly more fun/interesting than the other....

Hey, I applied in early November and haven't heard back. Would some of you guys mind posting when you applied and when you were admitted? Thanks in advance.

Check out the Harvard 2011 Applicants thread in the same forum, "Law School Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists."

I got my binder today! Just finished reading it cover-to-cover (instead of writing a paper. This is the kind of procrastination that I don't feel guilty about 8) )

And because it is farther away from finals time, so students will be in a better mood.

I want to get to know future classmates!

My days alternate.. one day I wake up like "Im for sure going to Harvard.. let me send in my deposit now". The next day I wake up like "no way am I paying 125k for law school".

So.. who knows.

Me. Should we start a HLS 2014 thread in the other forum?



Yes, I think we should!
