I'm actually surprised at how many people tend to get in off the WL at Harvard and how a lot of them tend to skew towards stronger GPAs than LSATs.



Yeah, I sent my WL response in pretty late too (last weekend). Really swamped with that end-of-the-year paper rush, so it took me a while to get around to writing something worthwhile. I'm hoping it didn't really make a difference.

I wonder if they've just got a list at this point, or if they're sorta figuring it out as they go...I demand TRANSPARENCY!

Deferring to poster below, but it can't hurt to acquiesce briefly via email.

No, unless you can't take the call at the time and need to reschedule, you don't need to reply to the email.

JR1b today...hope it's as good of a sign as others have been saying here!

Applied -> JR1 -> Held -> Waitlisted -> JR1b, FWIW.

maybe we should revise... you know, in recent years I bet American water torture's far worse.

Did any WL-->JR1 folks send in an LOCI noting that they would immediately accept an offer to HLS? Just grasping for straws over here...

really liking HLS' quick movement so soon after the deposit deadline!

so far, have they all been jr1's for those who received one before?

That's really reassuring, want my rejection to come from not enough merit rather than inability to complete my LOCI :)

I feel the same. I don't want to send in a LOCI so that I can say to myself once rejected, "If I would have sent a LOCI I would have definitely been in." :D

Same boat. I was (sort of) glad that no more invites went out today so that my LOCI has a chance to get there.
