KB2!!!!

Had KB1 this past Tuesday (1/3), UR since 12/12, stats in profile. With my numbers, I was definitely a borderline candidate for Harvard, it seems to good to be real!!! I can't stop listening to the voicemail over and over again :)

KB2!!!!!
had my KB 1 on 1/3 also. Thought I did so bad on the interview... I guess i must have screwed up less than I thought after all.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE!

ps. anyone that's abroad, if you dont receive an acceptance email, check your old US number... that's where I got my KB 2 even though harvard had my Chinese number that I'm currently using.

Just denied via email. Ouch, thought I was at least looking at a waitlist.

Just got dinged. Hardly a surprise given my split, but that's okay. Wherever I go, I'll kick enough butt to prove what a huge mistake Harvard just made ;)

Edit: Submitted 10/25, complete email 11/10. LSAT several points above 75th, GPA well below 25th (with medical addendum)

For those who have been dinged, could you please say when you submitted?

Sorry to hear about the dings guys. Do you mind sharing dates and stats as well? (to help calm those of us who have been in complete radio silence since going UR months ago).

Such an exciting and disappointing day in this thread. To all those dinged, try to keep it in perspective. You'll all be at the top schools in the world next year, and virtually all of you will have very successful careers

Straight reject for me. Son of a bitch. Looks like Harvard continues to prefer high GPAs to high LSATs. Bring back Toby Stock!

Welp, I know I just applied yesterday, but this pretty much shuts down my hopes! Sorry man.

Really? Where'd you see? It's definitely coming for me now. They really love 3.9s this year.

Edit-Jk I see. That's insane.

Maybe Harvard is indeed cutting size? Feel really nervous. Submitted early Nov. and heard nothing so far.


The person applied in late Oct., too. It seems like they're sending them one by one. Harvard must be pretty confident in its crop this year.
