Same here!


Same here as well. Fingers are crossed!


Same here... any idea what this 'Under review to complete' around this time of the year usually means?!?!

This is probably a dumb question, but here goes: The Feb. 1 deadline is when your application needs to be submitted by, not "complete" on Harvard's end, right? I got an email from my last recommender yesterday saying he would be sending my letter in "around January 18," so I'm getting a little worried about that deadline. Ugh.

Edit: and it's not really a hard deadline as I understand it.

Whoa, wtf? Guess that's coming for me as well. Seems ridiculous considering people close to your numbers got in off the waitlist last year. Sorry to hear that :(

ETA: think it has anything to do with you still being in undergrad? just hypothesizing, but maybe they prefer people with our numbers that are out of undergrad if they HAVE to take us? still can't believe that...

(I'm still in undergrad so I'm anticipating this happening to me as well)

Thanks guys. I'm surprised the ding came so early.... Maybe it's because I applied on day 1.

Ugh, I am sorry HP. It's Harvard's loss I'm sure.

Now I am extra nervous. It's like waiting for the axe to drop...

Yikes. Sorry to hear that. I have gone from "I have a 50/50 shot at a KB1" to "I have an outside but not insignificant shot at KB1" to "I will probably get held and then dinged" and more recently to "I'm an outright ding"

We'll see what they think. Do you mind telling us how you were informed? Email?

Yeah, got a ding email this morning (1130est/830pst).

I am sorry to report that, after full and careful consideration, the Admissions Committee has denied your application for admission to Harvard Law School.


and then some other stuff

This has been exactly my thought process, although until today I thought I was a waitlist then probable reject.
