Same here, UR since 10/13. LSN suggests that we still have hope of spring KB1s. Last year, there were people who applied in September who got interviewed in April. I guess it's just going to be a very long wait until the spring for some of us.


Just to confirm... you guys didn't get a "complete" notification? Does complete mean they have decided what to do with you? I know the definition of the word itself would imply that, but in the world of law school status checkers, simple words can really take on new meanings for themselves. (case in point: georgetown and the multiple complete dates)

I went UR 11/16 and complete on 11/23. Is this a good thing or bad thing? (I am leaning towards "bad" solely because of my LSAT score and the fact that harvard is a huge reach for me)


I'm in the same boat as you (UR 11/16, complete 11/23) and I think going UR before becoming complete has been the standard pattern with Harvard as far as I can tell. Since nobody with our complete date has received a KB1 yet, I wouldn't worry too much or jump to any conclusions.


Ah you have amazing stats. I am glad we have the same dates so I will have a benchmark for how much I should worry :)

Sheesh, I wouldn't expect you to know this one - my avatar is the flag of the Basque Country. Though I'm no Basque nationalist, I love the region (and Spain more generally). I'm from the US, though.

Oh ok, good. I was worried it was something really obvious and I would be embarrassed that I asked. Warning to all: don't google the word "chuff"... the first definition (urban dictionary) is not work appropriate. Though I am assuming euskadi you were going with the more traditional definition

congrats! I am getting confused though as it seems like usually the order is "under review" and then "complete" at a later date

Congrats too all new KB1ers :).

UR since 10/19.
I'm now convinced that I've been held until late in the cycle. With >75th LSAT and >25th GPA I thought I had a good shot...I'm starting to think that I might have made a big error on my application :(.

Haha, wow. I wasn't even aware of the other sense of "chuff". Of course, I only mean "chuffed" in the traditional sense: extremely pleased.

Same (and I have very similar numbers), but at least last year HLS had a 176 75th, and this year very few people are getting KB1s or KB2s with below median GPAs and at or above median LSATs (there seem to have been far more 170-173 with 3.9-4.0 than of 174-177 with 3.7-3.8... At least so far)

For you, maybe! ;)

My outside hope (conspiracy theory is probably more accurate) is that they are cognizant of the drop in LSAT takers, are unsure of how it will affect HLS, and are waiting until after Dec/Feb to fully assess their crop of high LSAT scorers. Not facing a dearth of high GPAs, they can evaluate GPA superstars (wherever they are on the 170-180 spectrum) at present.

Got my KB1 today! Submitted 11/2, complete 11/23 if anyone is wondering.

Quick question, should we reply to the KB1 email? I go to a business school and usually when we get an interview email, etiquette dictates that we reply with something along the lines of "thank you for taking the time to read my app, I will definitely be there." Is this not the case for law schools?
