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?


...this is me...

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


+1


I mean, we're all in good places though (I think... and those who aren't will soon be). Harvard is one of only two schools where my GPA is below the 25th percentile, and my LSAT at or above their 75th, so I guess it sort of makes me a splitter. I entered my numbers into those stupid calculators and got my hopes up, but if you had asked me a year ago whether I could break a 172 on the LSAT or whether I would be into a T6 or Berkeley I would have said "Unlikely!" on all counts, and yet I managed all three.

I try to keep perspective. Getting my LSAT back went to my head a bit, but I try to stay on top of how lucky I am, and remember that credentials only get one so far. A good lawyer will be a good lawyer wherever she goes, and a shitty one will not become great by dint of a Harvard degree.

Sorry HP. I'm sure I'll join you. It's just likely to be later.

Dings coming already? And for better numbers than mine? My hopes of riding the wait list are dwindling.

Son of a..., I submitted earlier and received my UR and Complete info weeks prior to you. Now that H/P was dinged I am not feeling too well about my chances.

Best of luck to H/P though, undoubtedly will do well regardless of where he is.

On a selfish note, I am just nervous as heck now.

Semi-rude question to ask someone.
